Director Jonathan Frakes (better known as Commander Riker on Star Trek) displays the touch that made Star Trek such a hit - believable characters and great stories that don't resort to cynicism or slime to deliver their impact. Plenty of action (the stunt biking had my son yelling with satisfaction) and good effects (think Matrix without violence), but without having the effects take over the show.
But the best part of the movie, I think, is the truly great girlfriend. Paula Garces shows the world what 21st century women can be. She's gutsy, funny, Latino, wears fab clothes,...
This is a movie for all ages and comes across as good clean fun with nice dramatic touch.
Don't fear renting/buying this film! It's pretty good!
French Stewart is the developer of the watch and has a nice funny role. Zak's African-American high-school buddy is about a half step away from Stepin Fetchit (a very underrated comic, by the way) and Michael Biehn has very little screen time. Paula Garces plays the girl-friend Francesca with some style. The movie has so much going on that it leaves too many loose ends and lapses of logic; there is too much time spent on scenes that do not advance the film and not enough time spent on scenes that do. Adults will have to work hard to stay interested. Jonathan Frakes is a better director than this.
I suggest watching the film with children present because they will applaud the wonderful things they could do with a watch that stops time and they will laugh at every comic moment. I have to tell you that I got as big a kick out of watching my children watch the film as I did watching the film itself. If you are looking for a nice inoffensive movie to watch with your children this is right down your alley.
It's a fun and clean movie that the whole family will enjoy. Even the teen crowd may like it. Give it a chance and rent it out. If you don't like it then you'll know other than wondering if it's worth it down the road. :)
The film begins with a cool looking sequence that ends in such a way that makes no sense, that is until you get further into the story, and by then you'll have probably forgotten all about it, unless you are writing a review, and trying to remember how the film started, like me...does that make sense? Probably not, but if you see this film, you'll know what I'm talking about...anyway, soon we meet Zak Gibbs (Bradford), a guy I initially confused with that character Xander, played by Nicholas Brendon, from the television series `Buffy the Vampire Slayer'.Read more ›
