Storyline

Until now, Zak Gibbs' greatest challenge has been finding a way to buy a car. But when he discovers an odd wristwatch amidst his father's various inventions and slips it on, something very strange happens. The world around him seemingly comes to a stop; giving the effect that everyone has come to a stop. Zak quickly learns how to manipulate the device, and he and his quick-witted, beautiful new friend, Francesca, have some real fun. What they soon realize, though, is they are not alone in hypertime. Written by Sujit R. Varma

The plot was inspired by H.G. Wells' 1901 story "The New Accelerator", about a scientist who develops a drug enabling him to move so fast that no-one can see him. From his viewpoint, everyone else seems frozen in time. See more »

Awesome Nickelodeon Movie
17 January 2003 | by (Ohio) – See all my reviews

There are people out there saying negative stuff about this movie, but what people are not realizing is that is is a family movie. It's for kids and family. Jonathan Frakes did a great job directing this movie. Jesse Bradford was good as the main character. Michael Beihn was just awesome as the bad guy in this movie. Nickelodeon is just down and out awesome. I love their movies. This one had lots of really really cool special effects. great acting and lots of fun. Oh yeah, lots of action kids style too. I recommend this movie to anyone who loves a good family movie. Or for anyone who loves an awesome Nickelodeon movie.
