- Details: US / 96 mins / (12PG).
One of those generic films that boys of a certain age think is "totally awesome"; Clockstoppers doesn't really have much to recommend it to a more cinema-literate audience. The effects are impressively rendered and the performances, banal techno-babble dialogue aside, are reasonable, but there's nothing about Clockstoppers which will appeal to anyone not part of the targeted demographic (boys between the age of seven and 14). Director Frakes makes a couple of half-hearted attempts at humour, calling the chief corporate baddie 'Gates' is an example, but ultimately there's a palpable lack of ambition about Clockstoppers
