Consensus: Lacking the punch and good cheer of The Incredibles and Sky High, Zoom is a dull and laugh-free affair.

A cheap, ugly, forgettable footnote to the seemingly endless superhero boom.

Although it is aimed at very young children, Zoom doesn't even work as a kid flick. It is truly one of the worst films of the year.

When it comes to action, comedy, and drama, three words apply: lamer, lamer, lamest.

Zoom is another one of those endearingly cheap, twice-annual Tim Allen movies that seem to be forever playing on airplanes. (Next up is Santa Clause 3.)

Imagine a mix of Sky High and The Incredibles with all the fun, laughs and clever adventure taken out and you've got director Peter Hewitt's atrocious comic-book fiasco.

Entertainment Weekly

In a feat of dullness quite powerful in its own way, this lifeless family comedy sucks the joy from every joke it touches; X-Men's Rogue would be envious.

Zoom is a movie that you've probably seen several times already.

Half-baked and poorly executed.

Too much time is devoted to training these superhero kids and not enough battles in the real world. Their powers were odd-ball. The jokes about their costumes… More

Kind of weak. It really is for kids and the bare bones plot shows. There really isn't anything going on in the flick for about the first half and they… More
