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

    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.
  3. 40
    "X-Men" sans the intellect and atmosphere.
  4. 30
    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.
  5. 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.
  6. 11
    This comedy drags its feet, while the sappy sweetness will make you wince.

    Ignore the critics. I just have a good time seeing this Tim allen movie. I bet it was as creative as Minecraft and Minecraft: Story Mode. ThisIgnore the critics. I just have a good time seeing this Tim allen movie. I bet it was as creative as Minecraft and Minecraft: Story Mode. This is just like jumping through a portal to the Nether. Expand

    We really loved this movie because it was very funny. We loved the little girl that had super powers and she pulled the bed off the wall. It We really loved this movie because it was very funny. We loved the little girl that had super powers and she pulled the bed off the wall. It was real cool that the 16 year old girl could control stuff with her mind. It was cool too that the 17 year old boy turned invisible and the 10 year old boy could expand his body in all sorts of funny ways. Expand

    A good family move with humor for both adults and kids. It isn't Star Wars, but the movie is fun.

    Not really sure how to describe how I feel about this movie.

    My reaction to it is kinda the same as to a cartoon show for little kids.

    My reaction to it is kinda the same as to a cartoon show for little kids.

    The acting is average, the effects are average, the story bland and predictable. Humor childish and generally falls flat. Yet, I still found it had some charm

    Overall:
    This is not a good movie, but it can be a little charming and fun if you have nothing better to do.

    Wasted potential. The kids were alright, and Tim Allen was half decent wen he was being sarcastic or a slacker, but Cox, Chase and Torn were Wasted potential. The kids were alright, and Tim Allen was half decent wen he was being sarcastic or a slacker, but Cox, Chase and Torn were just annoying and the endless montages lacked any real connective tissue. Sky High was better. Expand

    90 minutes of my life I'll never get back. A complete waste of time, talent and resources. Awful.
