(1969) from Tuna
|Zeta One (1969), which
IMDB calls The Love Factor, is an early British sex farce, and send-up
of James Bond films. The super agent's name is even James Word, and his
boss is "W." As the film opens, the office secretary (Yutte Stensgaard)
seduces him, first with a game of strip poker, then later in bed, and
pumps him for information about his most recent assignment. He was sent
to find out what arch villain Major Bourdon, who is trying to take over
a group of female aliens who recruit by kidnapping and brainwashing
Earth women, to increase his power.
Yutte Stensgaard shows all three
Bs, and Carolanne Hawkins, Anna Gael, and a host of unknown
women show breasts.
The alien women spend some time out of
their clothes, some with either pasties or their nipples painted blue.
In the end, James knows too much about the women's society to be left
on earth, so they capture him and press him into stud duty. In this
early attempt at a skin flick, there is not enough nudity or sex to
watch for that aspect, the plot is lame, and the acting is awful.
guideline: 7.5 usually indicates a level of
excellence, about like three and a half stars
from the critics. 6.0 usually indicates lukewarm
watchability, about like two and a half stars
from the critics. The fives are generally not
worthwhile unless they are really your kind of
material, about like two stars from the critics.
Films under five are generally awful even if you
like that kind of film, equivalent to about one
and a half stars from the critics or less,
depending on just how far below five the rating
guideline: A means the movie is so good it
will appeal to you even if you hate the genre. B means the movie is not
good enough to win you over if you hate the
genre, but is good enough to do so if you have an
open mind about this type of film. C means it will only
appeal to genre addicts, and has no crossover
appeal. D means you'll hate it even if you
like the genre. E means that you'll hate it even if
you love the genre. F means that the film is not only
unappealing across-the-board, but technically
inept as well.
Based on this
description, this film is a D+.
