Lost in Space Reviews

A galactic slump of a movie that stuffs its travel bag with special effects but forgets to pack the charm.

After seeing Lost in Space, my first impulse was to say that it had been made by a bunch of sorcerers' apprentices who didn't know how to tell a story with their high-tech tools. But why give apprenticeship a bad name?

The new robot is a disappointment. Instead of the endearingly low-tech fireplug of yore that warned Will Robinson of encroaching danger, the new machine is all bells and whistles and no fun at all. Kinda like the movie itself.

Much of the movie plays like a live-action video game, and the sequel-ready ending feels akin to falling off a cliff. But with its appealing mix of heart and adventure, Lost in Space is great fun for children of the '60s or the '90s.

Time-travel cliches... dialogue that's neither self-mocking nor serious, and an ostentatious though not particularly exciting production design keep the movie from taking off.

Once again an idea for a big budgeted feature film has been pulled from old issues of TV Guide.

If all you want is special effects, you may have come to the right galaxy. But if you're looking for old-fashioned goofiness, you'll be shouting, "Beam me up, Scotty!'' Or whatever the Lost in Space equivalent of that is.

The film is set 60 years from now, yet its vision of the future is badly dated.

[Lost In Space features] a horrible, horrible computer-generated space-pet creature that's a cross between a leech and a boiled howler monkey.

Boasting state-of-the-art gimcracks and a solid cast, the motion picture lifts off easily enough. Only it's not long before you realize that mission control forgot to load the Tang.

I don't know about you, but my eyes glaze like doughnuts when people start time-traveling, showing up in two places at once, or one place twice -- which is what happens here.

Is any of this, you know, fun? Just barely. But I'm sure I would have loved it at 6.

It was smart, in theory, to cast some very good actors not usually seen in this sort of fare. Ultimately, though, their casting can't do much to salvage script's dim human dimensions.

Most effort has gone into the impressive Star Wars-style opening dogfight and the edge-of-your-seat closing sequences, leaving a drawn out mid-section on the ship, with only a standard mutant insect invasion to pass the time.

By largely jettisoning the elements that made the TV series popular, the creative crew of Lost in Space embarked on a road not fated to meet with any kind of meaningful success.

Unfortunately, there's not much to supplement all the eye-popping visuals. The story is unfocused and the character development is virtually nonexistent.

Lost in Space is lost on the big screen. Or, rather, it never arrives. This film version of the campy TV series that aired from 1965 to '68 seldom seems more than a secondhand slog through two hours of instant staleness.

Packed with Star Wars-style dazzle and some of the clunkiest dialogue this year, Lost in Space is a wild ride through nonstop visual effects yet a warm wallow in the cinema of the dumbed-down.

It's got cheesy special effects, a muddy visual look, and characters who say obvious things in obvious ways.
