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

A Refreshing Change
2 April 2003 | by stevieg50See all my reviews

I'm really glad to see such a good kid movie again. The music went along great with the movie, all fun. The special effects were fantastic, (although it was "The Matrix" that re-defined bullet-time photography), those in charge of special effects did a great job with what they did. French Stewart was great! Glad to see Jonathan Frakes do such a good job and hope he'll come out with more.
