Clockstoppers

Zak and Francesca are kidnapped by QT agents and locked in a hypertime chamber with Zak's dad. Upon hearing that the feds are here to shut down the program, Gates takes the entire building into hypertime. Zak pulls out the hypertime watch (he hid it in his pocket when Gates captured him) and enters double hypertime, which makes him transparent. This also means he can walk through walls, which he uses to escape. Gates shoots him with liquid nitrogen, which brings him down to normal hypertime. Zak hits the lever to send hydrogen into the hypertime chamber, which blows up the lab, due to a torch left on by Zak's dad. He and Francesca survive by hiding in a compartment in the chamber. The three of them try to escape, but Gates catches up to them. As he is about to shoot them, Doppler shows up and shoots Gates with liquid nitrogen. Gates and his men are arrested and the hypertime project is shut down. Zak returns home with the Mustang he was looking at earlier in the movie. He, his sister Kelly, Francesca, and Doppler ride off. The cops chase them for stealing the QT Laboratories van and Zak engages hypertime, leaving the cop car frozen in its tracks.

Factual error: In the DJ spin-off scene, Zach and Francessca help make Meeker cool by going into hypertime and giving him a dance lesson. At one point, we see Zach and Francessca in hypertime making Meeker do flips. Then, in real time, we see that Meeker is doing the flips at the same speed that he was doing in hypertime. Wouldn't he be going a lot faster in real time, not the same speed as he was in hypertime?

Trivia: When Zak takes Francesca into hypertime in her garden, she says, "Lo veo pero no lo creo". This is Spanish for "I see it, but I don't believe it".

Question: In the scene where the hypertime QT agents are in Zak's house, one of them gets sprayed with liquid nitrogen, bringing him down to normal time. But, if he is in normal time, wouldn't Zak's mom and sister see him? Don't you think they would call the police after seeing a stranger in their house?

Chosen answer: Probably, but it's not essential to the plot so there's no reason to show it.

Answer: These are top agent like figures who likely don't want many people knowing what's going on. Those still in hypertime probably carried the normal-time agent out of the building before Zak's mom found him.
