    If August has turned the children in your life into Bored Girl and Fidget Boy, you could find worse ways to keep them entertained.

  • Nathan Rabin

    Zoom suffers from following three "X-Men" movies and "Sky High," but even if it preceded them, it'd still qualify as little more than a cheap, ugly, forgettable footnote to the seemingly endless superhero boom.

    "X-Men" sans the intellect and atmosphere.

    Pure Saturday matinee kiddie fodder and this close to going straight to DVD.

  • Jason Anderson

    A family-friendly adventure.

  • Kirk Honeycutt

    Zoom is a movie that would make Dr. Frankenstein proud. Put together with parts from so many other movies, the thing positively clanks.

  • Luke Y. Thompson

    Tim Allen gamely brings some humanity to the role of the retired, powerless hero Captain Zoom, but is thwarted at every turn by bad special effects, slapdash editing, interminable pop-song montages, and a goofy performance by Courteney Cox.

    Bleeds boredom from every frame.

  • Joe Leydon

    This tepid comic-bookish comedy should zip through its theatrical run faster than a speeding bullet. It likely won't perform much more superheroically in ancillary venues.

    Variety Full Review
  • Peter Hartlaub

    Zoom is a C-list production in every possible way, from the actors and the special effects to the music and the script. Even the product placement is completely third rate.

  • Maitland McDonagh

    One of the most dismal excuses for family entertainment ever perpetrated by a major studio, this crude, lazy variation on Disney's "Sky High" (2005) revolves around the education of four "special" youngsters at the hands of a washed-up superhero.

  • Lisa Schwarzbaum

    In a feat of dullness quite powerful in its own way, this lifeless family comedy sucks the joy from every joke it touches.

  • Kyle Smith

    A kid comedy that's been zapped by extraterrestrial suckiness rays.

    This comedy drags its feet, while the sappy sweetness will make you wince.
