  • Very old story concept remade for the "Batman" world.

    6.2
    Robotic killer programmed by higher forces to work for good suddenly develops a mind of its own and decides killing is wrong while trying to break away from the creators that fear/demand its powers.



    That sums up the plot of "Zeta," and at least a dozen other movies and shows. It's a real shame that they couldn't come up with something more original to launch a spinoff.

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Batman: So why the high school?
      Zeta: I needed computers and electronic equipment. Compared to a government site, a school has little security.
      Max: And once you saw who's who at the school, I was the natural choice. Who'd looked twice at me spending all day at the lab?

    • Max: So he was innocent.
      Zeta: Yes, but that is not why I spared him. Replacing him required that I lived with his family. I watched them experience life. I saw his daughter ride a bicycle for the first time. I could not deprive her father of seeing her grow just because he knew I existed.
      Max: Wow...

    • Dana: You know where Win lives, right?
      Zeta/Max: I'll get directions from her.
      Dana: (giggles) "Him." You said "her." Win's a guy.
      Zeta/Max: Sorry, concentrating.
      Dana: What else is new?

    • Terry: I don't know, does being Batman just gives me a suspicious nature?
      Max: Yes.
