A delightful farce
22 November 2005 | by khillyerSee all my reviews

Captain Zoom is a delightful farce. The writing and acting are exactly what the story line needs and sets up the comedy nicely. The cast is stereotypical but strong, especially the boy genius. The special effects are enough to further the story. After reading other comments, I think the whole point is the absurdity of the situation - that a journeyman actor would be thrown into such a save-the-world scenario. The dialog and presentation are perfect for this type of farce. It's very enjoyable, if you don't take it seriously. Compare this to Galaxy Quest; they are of similar style and quality. I intend to have this film in my library permanently. Also, it's nice to see Nichelle Nichols in something other than Star Trek.
