    Evidencing savvy visual flair and compelling storytelling skill, Goyer infuses heart and vigor into material that could have come off as overly familiar at best, sappily improbable at worst.

    ZigZag rests heavily on Jones III's sensational turn as the lead character. Capable of drawing empathy without pity from an audience, his ZigZag is the unlikely constant in a world swirling with change and intrigue.
  3. The greatest strength of this modest production is Jones. ZigZag's autism is mild, meaning his symptoms are subtle, and the 19-year-old novice is completely convincing.
  4. Kid-pulp screenwriter Goyer (Dark City, Blade I and II) manages some mature textures but his movie never surmounts its manipulative ideas.
  5. 50
    The character of ZigZag is not sufficiently developed to support a film constructed around him.

    A great ensemble cast can't lift this heartfelt enterprise out of the familiar.
  7. Either a put-on or a straight shooter; that you can't tell the difference underscores its small but ultimately overwhelming flaws.
