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

Quotes

James Word: The whole place is like a vast, supernatural ant colony. The women, the Angvians, are picked up from all over the world and, by brainwashing processes, are conditioned for their allotted functions. Some of them become administrators, some workers, some fighters. Zeta, herself, is the queen ant. Who she is, or where she originally came from is a mystery. But she holds the key to the whole set up. All the others have come from Earth. They are specially selected, after careful observation. A ...

British sexploitation
14 July 2000 | by Mark_D-2See all my reviews

If anything, "Zeta One" (a.k.a. "The Love Factor" and "Alien Women") proves that the U.S.A. doesn't have a lock on cheesy soft-core porn movies. In this one, a race of alien women (many of whom run around topless) kidnap earth women to repopulate their world. What sounds like a fun spoof of spy movies and sci-fi flicks fails miserably, due to many factors, not the least of which is that there's simply no point of view. The cast (and the script) seem to meander around without any real purpose. The secret agent character, James Word (played by Robin Hawdon of "When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth") seems to have two purposes in the movie: to have sex with every woman who crosses his path, and smoke cigarettes, since he doesn't seem to do anything else. A part like his takes a deft comedic touch, which Hawdon just doesn't have. The story is told in flashback, and the framing sequences featuring Hawdon and lovely Yutte Stensgaard seem to indicate trouble with the original film (Hawdon has a moustache in the main body of the film, but is without it in the framing sequences). Scenes dealing with a strip-poker game and Word's ultimate fate go on for what seems like an eternity without any real payoff. And top-billed James Robertson Justice gives a textbook example of a "where's-my-paycheck?" type performance. The British have a reputation for stuffiness, and if this movie is any indication, it is a reputation well-deserved.
