  • Lost In Space

    May 28, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Matt LeBlanc in a non-comedic role, action sequences, time-travel
    Cons: too much room for a sequel

    Summary: The Movie "Lost In Space" came out way back in 1998. It was a remake of a television show that used to be quite popular. The movie itself took a lot of the plot line, and all of the characters when it made it to the big-screen. This was one of the ... read more

  • Pretty much better than what the critics said

    Feb 4, 2008 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Special effects, LeBlanc, action scenes
    Cons: Gets confusing when the time travel subplot begins, not really loyal to the TV show

    Summary: This is yet another major motion picture based on a classic television show which rewrites the plot of the story. A world government-run space organization is in the process of creating a sort of space gate that will transport the world's population ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Quite fun in places, some decent extras on DVD...
    Cons: ... feeble plot, some DVD features very poor

    Summary: Lost in Space was a popular science fiction series some years ago but I never really saw it. So I watched the film with no real expectations either way. And my final opinion is? neither way really. The film starts off with an space dogfight ... read more

  • Give it a 2nd chance...

    Oct 16, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Tons of fun, good special effects.
    Cons: Bogs down with the time travel story.

    Summary: Lost in Space is one of those movies where you may not have liked it when you first saw it but when given a 2nd chance, you will find it very entertaining. First of all, the original series was never one to be thought provoking. It was ... read more

  • Oh no, not time travel...

    Jul 28, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Some good special effects, William Hurt, a few laughs
    Cons: The story, Gary Oldman's character, some bad special effects, time travel/warping

    Summary: If there is one thing that the majority of sci-fi/fantasy movies should generally avoid, it's time travel or time warping. It usually does not make for a good story, and has so many plausibility issues it's scary. There are a lot of things a movie can ... read more

  • This Movie Should Get Lost!

    Oct 2, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Well, the beginning was ok....
    Cons: After that it's ALL downhill....

    Summary: I remember I was really excited to go see Lost in Space. All the previews made it seem nothing sort of a space epic of Star Wars proportions. Instead, what I saw was a terrible, boring, and overall bad movie! Lost in Space has a good ... read more

    Pros: It has good sound
    Cons: It is not entertaining

    Summary: The year is 2058. With Earth;s resources dwindling, human survival depends upon the Robinson Family-launched into space to colonize "Alpha Prime," the only other inhabitable planet in the galaxy. But when a stowaway sabotages the mission, the ... read more

  • Not as bad as I'd heard. Still nothing great.

    Jun 24, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Some good FX, some trashy/fun performances, minor thrills.
    Cons: The rampant corniness. That Lacey kid.

    Summary: I think this is just one of those movies that everyone wanted to hate. As it stands after all the hype, it's not all that bad. Yes, the "family" angle was way overdone, and that stupid little monkey is almost as annoying as Jar Jar Binks. What ... read more

  • Why I loved "Space Camp"

    Jun 23, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: prose
    Cons: Caans

    Summary: This is one of the funniest movies I’ve ever seen! Man, I was rolling! Ok, ok….here’s the synopsis: There’s these two cavemen played by Arnold Schwartzeneger and Ted Danson (in a bit of welcome surprise casting) and they live in Sri Lanka. One ... read more

  • Space Camp

    Jun 18, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Some pretty moments
    Cons: That CGI monkey!

    Summary: Lost In Space is better entertainment than the TV series upon which it is based; to say that is to damn the film to faint praise, for it should eradicate all memory of that barely entertaining '60's show. Unfortunately, like its predecessor, Lost In ... read more

  • Just hope it stays lost!

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: "special effects" to name something and not be awful.
    Cons: EVERYTHING ELSE!

    Summary: Lost in space is a movie I didn't want to pay the full theater ticket price to see. Although I did watch the series on reruns, on occasion, I never much cared for it. So when I saw the ads for the film, I thought this might be a good one to catch on ... read more

    Pros: It could be three hours long
    Cons: every single second

    Summary: Why did I see this movie? What the blazes was I thinking? I mean, it has everything I hate in a movie: family values, excessive cgi, Matt LeBlanc. And yet, along I went. Boy, was I wrong to. Lost in Space, the TV show has a charm to it. It's because ... read more

    Pros: Good special effects, nice bits for long-time fans
    Cons: Bizarre plot, unmotivated cast

    Summary: After growing up with "Lost in Space" reruns, I wanted to love the movie. Needless to say, I was disappointed. What was most disappointing was the poor decisions made on the script, when so many other good choices had been made. For ... read more

    May 21, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Special effects, Good casting.
    Cons: Special effects used to hide bad writing.

    Summary: As a kid I grew up watching Lost in Space... ok Watching the re-runs my parents grew up watching it every week. When the hype began I was thrilled! I love sci-fi so I thought this HAS to be a great movie. Unfortunately several factors made this into ... read more

    Pros: Good opening space battle scene.
    Cons: Everything else

    Summary: Why would I spend the time and energy writing a scathing review of a horrible film? Because "Lost in Space" stole two hours of my life...two hours I will never retrieve. The strange thing about watching a bad movie is that as you realize ... read more

  • Worst. Movie. Ever.

    Pros: None.
    Cons: Watching this film may cause a fatal brain aneurysm.

    Summary: I've always wondered what it would be like to travel in outer space. Now, thanks to the movie Lost in Space, I have been able to experience at least one aspect of space flight: extreme nausea and the uncontrollable urge to retch. The hype for ... read more

    Pros: Decent special effects.
    Cons: The acting, the plot, some of the effects, need I go on.

    Summary: Not being a fan of the original series (I wasn't alive yet, which made it hard to watch), I held no out of the ordinary expectations for this movie. I thought fairly good cast (they've all proven they can act in other films), cutting edge special ... read more

  • Lost In Space: We Should All Be So Lucky.

    Apr 15, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Most of the New Line Cinemas staff involved with this movie was unceremoniously fired after its theatrical release.
    Cons: Some new-hire twit saw fit to release it on DVD.

    Summary: I haven’t written a movie review in eons, probably because I lost my free movie pass and have been loathe to actually PAY to see anything that is probably going to suck. Last year, I bought a DVD player that was so outdated that it actually plays DIVX ... read more

  • Lost in Hollywood.

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Decent special effects.
    Cons: Bad script, bad acting.

    Summary: This movie was a perfect example of why NOT to make a film from an old TV show. Some TV shows should just be allowed to stand on their merits. When I was a little kid, LIS was one of my favorite shows. It scared me silly! Looking back on ... read more

    Pros: Has the line "Danger, Will Robinson!"
    Cons: Everything

    Summary: As a Sci-Fi fan, I thought that Lost in Space would be an excellent movie. Since the original series was one of the first of it's genre, I thought that all the original creativity would go into this movie. Boy, was I wrong! I watched this ... read more
