Two teens discover a wristwatch that gives them the ability to speed up their bodies so that the rest of the world appears to be standing still. Unfortunately, rather more sinister types are determined to get their hands on it.
Despite a good gimmick, the predictably safe tone favours the welter of teen clichés, while the one major special effect is quite meagre and quickly dispensed with. Ultimately, the lacklustre material forces director Frakes to keep proceedings loud and fast as he heads to the gratingly moral finale.
