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

this is a cool movie
28 June 2005 | by (Pennsylvania,US) – See all my reviews

I'm not just saying this because this is a movie to watch to waste your time; I really think this is a cool movie. It has good Sci-Fi movie quality, especially for a Nickelodeon movie. And it asks you the question, "What if you had the power to stop time?" I mean, there would be a lot of opportunities in that category. This is a real treat, and the best way to watch it is along with some Back to the Future movies. It's not the best movie I've ever seen, but it really redefines adventure. I totally recommend this movie if you want to rent something that will please you. As I have said many times with other comments, there will never be another movie such as this.
