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.

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.

Lost in Space glides along smoothly on special effects and punchy editing. At about the one-hour mark, however, the movie abandons itself to the noise, chaos and empty spectacle of the new-style Hollywood blockbuster, where story ceases to matter.

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 overreachers who made this super-scale mess failed to realize one essential truth about great science-fiction cinema: Sometimes the low road is the best road, even in outer space.

These Robinsons should have gone into therapy, not space.

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

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.

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.

A charmless if flashy affair.

Watching Lost in Space was akin to trying to run underwater.

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

You have to wonder how much longer Oldman can get away with his OTT villain act.

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.

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

...the motion picture tries hard to recapture that former tone, and, yes, even retains the same lines.
