Zoom Synopsis


Social outcast Summer Jones (Mara) is ushered away by her mysterious father (Allen) to a new school. She learns that her dad is secretly a superhero, and she's been brought to the academy where she, along with other kids, can develop her special talents. Soon into her training, Summer discovers that an enemy of the academy is plotting against the school ... and her.



I haven’t seen it yet, but odds are this movie was a lot better the first time when it was called Sky High. Zoom will need all the Ron Wilson: Bus Driver it can beg, borrow, or steal from its superhero high school predecessor to lift itself beyond the direct to video direction it seems to be leaning to. Unfortunately, I doubt the kids of Sky High are likely to give them a Ron Wilson loaner.

Tim Allen is no Kurt Russell and Zoom is a retread of an idea that wasn’t all that fresh the first three or four times someone did it. It’s been made to work in the past, but can Zoom squeeze more content out of the superhero school concept yet again? At least this isn’t another Santa Clause sequel from Tim.

Oh damn, that’s happening too.

What the heck happened to Galaxy Quest 2?

I really like Tim Allen, and I root consistently for the guy to succeed. But his recent work hasn’t exactly been… well… great. In fact, it hasn’t been great at all. In Galaxy Quest he found the perfect vehicle, but so far he’s avoided revisiting it in favor of redoing the work of others or redoing himself with an unending string of boorish Santa Clause follow-ups. He’s better than that but maybe now it’s gone too far and he’s too late in his career to show it, unless there’s a lot more to Zoom than meets the eye.
