TICKET, THE

THE TICKET REVIEWED

“The Ticket” could’ve been so much better. But, the film boasts amazing performances from Dan Stevens and Malin Akerman. It’s just what else? The story of an individual getting an ability back isn’t that new anymore. When Dan Stevens’ character gains his vision back, the film hits the usual notes. What has our disabled hero been missing before the film started? Is his life truly his life now that he has vision?

The answers don’t come that fast, as they are usually replaced with even more questions. It’s a film about faith that never sticks that third act landing. Dan Stevens finds a film that didn’t need to exist within a look about restored ability. So, what does it all mean? Ultimately nothing.

I’ve spent the last week trying to get a grasp on this movie, but I keep getting stuck. The early scenes of Dan Stevens’ co-workers turning on him when compared against the later revelations almost makes me think that there was some heavy editing. The disjointed nature of the film has to be explained by missing scenes. This shouldn’t have been so hard to follow, but I get a lot of the downplaying now. Still, I’d check it out if you’re absolutely curious.
