Storyline

A British superspy comedy with a Pop Art aesthetic, ZETA ONE is the kind of psychedelic, sexy thriller that inspired the Austin Powers series. In this playful spoof at the James Bond films, Robin Hawdon stars as Word...James Word, a womanizing secret agent whose investigation of a criminal mastermind (James Robertson Justice) leads him to discover a race of beautiful, exotic superwomen. Further inquiry exposes the naked truth, that these women have been abducted and brainwashed by the alien, interdimensional goddess Zeta (Dawn Addams). Written by Becky LeSabre

An entertaining slice of mod silliness with plentiful nudity
4 August 2007 | by (Worcester, MA) – See all my reviews

"Zeta One" offers proof that the Americans weren't the only ones capable of making bad sexploitation comedies in the 60s. The British were churning them out as well, and if "Zeta One" is slightly more classy than its stateside counterparts, its just as dumb. However, its also reasonably entertaining if you're a fan of 60s mod style kitsch as I am. Its a combination of various stock genres (the super spy espionage tale, a race of extra-terrestrial and attractive females, the Richard Lester-esquire mod tale, and as mentioned earlier the nudie film). For some reason, its agglomeration of all these swinging 60s genres is pretty unique. Most people will be bored with this, but I enjoyed it a good deal.

As mentioned earlier, this is a pretty poorly made and cheap film. The humor isn't funny, but is enjoyable in that dated pop-art style. The direction by Michael Cort is workmanlike and there's plenty filler. A strip poker sequence in particular is completely erroneous and obviously added to pad out the running time. Its watchable though because of how absolutely gorgeous the leading lady Yutte Stensgaard is. There's the wide array of eye-popping colors associated with this kind of film, as well as some occasional crazy moments of psychedelic trippiness. The effects are cheap but a good deal of fun to watch. "Zeta One" is pretty dumb, but fans of cult cinema and mod silliness will like it. I'm sure Austin Powers himself Mike Meyers is a fan, and while its nowhere nearly as good as "Danger: Diabolik", its still much better than anyone of Pierce Bronson's attempts at playing James Bond. (6/10)
