Is It Any Good?

If you're surprised that Disney managed to stretch its Zenon concept to three movies, take comfort in the fact that this -- the final one -- is actually pretty good, as TV movies go. The special effects haven't come along by much, and there are still a few utterly implausible concepts, but overall this is an entertaining teen adventure in a funky, futuristic world.

Zenon has grown into a well-rounded character and the introduction of her precocious foster cousin Dasha (Alyson Morgan) brings a few laughs. We have more of the garish, multicolored outfits and props, extra space slang -- "zetus lapetus!" has somehow evolved into "vega omega!" -- and some genuinely catchy songs. Meanwhile characters like the eco-activist Sage and the punky Moon Goddess Selena make it feel slightly more up-to-date. Zenon: Z3 was never going to win any awards, but the snappier script, compelling-enough storyline, and better pacing give it the edge over its two predecessors.
