A teenager discovers a device which has the ability to make time stand still.
Despite some good visual effects, the film and storyline pander only to a teenage audience and alienates everyone else, but considering the film was co-produced by Nickelodeon, perhaps this should be expected.
It's a shame that a promising idea is put to waste with no real style or energy, better investment and more focus could have ensured a more timeless film, rather than something completely forgettable.
4/10
