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.

The movie's father-son dynamics smack of too much therapy and some of the effects have an insubstantial computer-generated look, but the whole thing is fun for 11-year-olds of all ages.

It's too long and a bit clunky, the special effects sometimes slip, and the plot seems at times to be made up as it went along. But Lost in Space remains appealing, with a great robot, a genuine sense of adventure and a good bit of ambition.

The actors are good sports. The standout, inevitably, is Gary Oldman.

It may be a toy advert first and a film second, but it's still a fairly entertaining and fun night out.

I was never a big fan of the original TV show, so this movie didn't slay any sacred cows for me.

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

Big kudos to production designer Norman Garwood for making one of the coolest spaceships ever.

Usually Hollywood can't make movies that are as good as the best TV, so why not adapt bad TV shows into good movies? That's what they've done here with the new Lost in Space movie.

Don't ask me how Lost in Space compares to the old television show; I never watched one episode. But ask me how it stacks up against the ever-growing library of effects-laden sci-fi fantasies, and I can tell you: Not too bad.

It has been a while since the look of a science fiction film has done much to excite me, but if this film has a hero, it is production designer Norman Garwood.

Overall, if you're a big sci-fi fan, check this movie out for the special effects and challenging narrative, and if you're not, I would still suggest seeing this movie, but then you could probably wait until it comes out on video.

Mildly entertaining outer space adventure marred by some atrocious performances.

It's a ride, nothing more.

To tell the truth, we could have done a lot worse with the updated big-screen version of Lost in Space -- a whole lot worse.

Lost in Space shouldn't be taken too seriously -- it's a fun journey into escapism with minimal violence and swearing, so even Grandma can experience hi-tech effects without being offended.

For cinematic junk food, it's tastier than you'd expect it to be.

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.

Despite the slimness of the story, you may just get caught up in the human drama of a family who have become truly lost.
