    Чё там зависли-то?

    Been watching the film 'Возвращение', trying to work out what's being said, but mostly resorting to some subtitles I found somewhere online...

    At 2.13, a kid says (offscreen):-
    Чё там зависли-то?
    'Something is stuck there?' Maybe he's saying 'what's the hold up?'
    Is that what this means?

    Yeah, "what's the hold up?" that is. Зависнуть is colloquial. When a computer freezes, we use зависнуть for example. A more literal meaning would be to hover, like a helicopter.

    I do not claim that my opinion is absolutely true.
    If you've spotted any mistake in my English, please, correct it. I want to be aware of any mistakes to efficiently eliminate them before they become a habit.

    About computer both 'висит' & 'завис' can be said. I saw many times how native speakers had said 'hangs' instead of 'freezes', so we have a close correspondence here.
