After making a couple of successful Star Trek films for Paramount, Jonathan Frakes was given the chance to direct an original sci-fi movie, Clockstoppers. The film is a family-friendly action movie about a high school kid who uses the watch his dad invented to slow down time.

In this episode of Stage Nine, Mike and John take a look at Frakes' first non-Trek movie. We discuss talented filmmakers directing kids movies, the trend of family-oriented action films, and what Frakes' style looks like outside of a pre-established franchise.
