Where are June Lockhart and Billy Mumy when we need them?

Lost in Space isn't so much a movie version of an old TV show as a mind-blowing, multi-media video game that threatens to blast audiences into submission with bleeps and blips, fiery explosions, clever gizmos and ear-splitting sound effects.

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

Strictly for fans of the TV show or sci-fi buffs.

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

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

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?

A charmless if flashy affair.

About the only thing that is lucid, in the malestrom of wham-bam effects, is the set-up for a sequel.

The casting splits you down the middle -- you don't know whether to be grateful that you at least have good actors to watch, or to regret that they're given nothing to do.

Takes the whimsy and surrealism of the show and transforms it in to this muddy, grimy, and droning space opera that completely over thinks the premise.

Lost in Space may ultimately be an insult to your intelligence, but it is an insult with good special effects. But with a big-screen TV, you can wait for that HBO premiere instead of shelling out cash for this loser.

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.

Lost in Space is an apt title for a movie that is dramatically lost for lack of consistency and focus.

Oldman is the only person on the screen who seems to be having fun.

Every action sequence in this grossly over-produced movie looks like designers from Nintendo were creative consultants.

Lost In Space is mildy amusing entertainment that fails to catch the camp of the series, using F/X in place of plot.
