Have you ever wished you had more time, when all of your friends are shouting at you, for being late to the party, and you are struggling with your dress, which is failing to put on the right place, just at the right time. Or have you ever being frustrated for being late at the class or at the office, afraid of how might your boss react?
Almost everyone of us, have demanded more time then we get. And its the only thing that instead flies, with the promise that it would never return…. Okay, I sometimes carry away, when I talk about “Time”. So I was saying that if you ever had the shortage of seconds, then the Clock from the movie, Clockstoppers is a gadget you will have to dream of. “Dream” because it would take extreme luck for you to acquire such a device, on which there would be the eyes of some of the villians, who will try to snatch it from you, at every tick of the second you proceed with the clock.
Well, in the story of Clockstopper, the lead role, gets his hand on such a watch, which on the press of a button makes you so fast, that everything around seems to be so slow, that you get the illusion of time being stopped, when actually time IS flying like it always does, but with an extremely slow rate! (Umm.. good physics, isn’t it?) And now you can do whatever you can imagine in, what is called as “Hypertime”. Now any verb, prefixed with Hyper, is bound to sound cool, and this is no exception!
What makes this story interesting, other than the fact, that it uses Einstein’s Theory of Relativity, is the adventure with which the boy is accompanied with that clock. And the best part is he gets to know about that time stopping; okay, time slowing gadget with her girlfriend, and together they try to make full use of it! Hey, don’t get bad ideas in you mind! They are children for god’s sake. They use this power to… well, I don’t want to write a spoiler.
The fact is, they don’t get to use its power, cause as in a typical Hollywood movie, there are bad guys, who is trying to get that gadget, for some evil intentions! And that’s when the adventure comes, and the survival race begins.
Clockstoppers, is quite a nice movie, nice for kids, cause in terms of the story, it doesn’t qualify for big guys. But still, a fun movie to watch, cause it shows, the hidden desire among all of us – to stop time.
Keep an eye on this gadget. You may not go back in time, with that clock, but you sure can go Hyper!
