Corrected entry: To freeze others in time, the person with the watch must touch the people he wants to bring into hypertime. In the scene in the vent, Zach, Francesca, and Doppler freeze time with the watch to get through the fan. Doppler backs out and says he's scared to go in and starts to walk away. Zack still had time frozen when he walks away so how does Doppler expect to have a normal life if he's stuck in hypertime with no one to get him out?
Corrected entry: At the end of the movie the laboratory gets blown up, but how could anything explode in a room saturated with nitrogen?
Corrected entry: Apparently, the "speed of gravity" seems to change to accommodate both people in "hypertime" and people in normal time throughout the movie. For example, when the bad guy gets shot by the liquid nitrogen filled paintballs, he freezes and thereby gets forced back into normal time. He starts to fall backwards in hypertime, but as he cools and re-enters normal time, he stops mid-fall in the air, as seen from a hypertime perspective. However, the characters in hypertime at the moment still experience gravity at a "normal" rate.
Corrected entry: When they break into the lab to save their father, the alarm goes off. Both the people in hypertime and real time can hear it at the same pitch. How can this happen if they're moving at different times?
Corrected entry: The elevator in QT that Zach uses is all wrong. The retina scanner that he puts Ralph in front of would have taken more time, the "Welcome Ralph" would have taken more time, and the elevator trip itself would have taken hours.
Corrected entry: When the man and woman come to search for Zak in the hospital, Zak looks out of the window and sees them coming in their car (in normal time). Why didn't they just go straight into hypertime, instead of giving Zak the chance to escape?
Corrected entry: In the scene where the hero comes home in hypertime and finds the QT agents there, he goes back outside and is pulled into the van by Doppler. Why would they put him in hypertime? He would have time to escape, since he can now move as fast as they can. The smart thing to do would be to leave him in real time, as they would be gone for a few seconds, literally.
Corrected entry: When the unauthorized hypertime response agents go to get Zak, some of them have liquid nitrogen (which brings people out of hypertime) but some of them don't. Why would the company have hypertime response agents that don't have the one thing that would bring their enemy out of hypertime? If these were simply workers not designated for hypertime response, then why aren't they required to carry nitrogen anyway just in case they *do* have to respond to an unauthorized hypertime user?
Corrected entry: When you're wearing the watch and you go into hypertime, anything or anyone touching you does too. If your feet are touching the ground, shouldn't the earth and everyone touching it go into hypertime?
Corrected entry: The premise of the story is that a watch speeds up the molecular structure of the wearer to the point where the rest of the world appears to be at a standstil, a state called 'hypertime'. In that state, the wearer moves through the world so fast that he appears to be invisible to other people. I would estimate that the speed at which someone would have to move to appear 'invisible' would be about the speed of a bullet. I suspect that someone moving through the air at such a speed would experience friction much like a meteor does when entering the earth's atmosphere and thus burn up, or at least they would create massive turbulence such as a supersonic jet creates.
Corrected entry: The first scene has Doppler in disguise at the airport, desperately trying to hustle a flight in order to escape the bad guys. But he was in possession of a hypertime watch. Why didn't he just go into hypertime and walk right onto any plane he wished?
Corrected entry: The two friends go into the DJ/Hip Hop competition to help Meeker. They go into Hypertime and make Meeker dance. One rule of Hypertime is that if the wearer of the watch touches someone, they also go into Hypertime. They touched Meeker to make him dance, how come he didn't go into Hypertime as well?
Corrected entry: When Zak first finds the watch, he puts it in his left pocket. Later Franchesca asks what time it is and he pulls the watch out of his right pocket.
Corrected entry: At the end of the movie, Zak enters double hypertime. The basis of the movie is that entering hypertime speeds up your particles so much that you appear invisible to the people in real time. When he is in double hypertime, he is moving much faster that the people in single hypertime, so shouldn't he appear invisible to the bad guys?
Corrected entry: When Doppler is first shown forced to be in hypertime, he has written "You're killing me" on the mirror. Henry Gates sees this and makes a comment about him being dramatic. Doppler then writes "Dirtbag" on the mirror. But if Doppler is in hypertime, he would not have been able to hear when Gates had said because to him, the sentence would have taken several hours at least.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Zak goes into double hypertime, He is not able to touch anything, including the table, walls, and Francesca. He proceeds to go through the wall with his head and hands. He gets the attention of one of the guards and then grabs his head and pulls it into the wall. In double hypertime he should not have been able to do that, as his hands would have gone right through the guard's head.
Corrected entry: Some objects that are used in normal time appear to be used in Hypertime under the same premise. In the last 20 minutes of the movie you see everyone working in hypertime, however the computer is working, the shutters are closing, the eye scanner (seen in a previous scene to work in normal time). How is this possible?
Corrected entry: When things are hot, their molecules move faster. Since hypertime works by speeding up molecules, wouldn't the people who go in to hypertime heat up and eventually vapourise?
