Summary: In the future, Earth's natural resources are used up and it's up to a scientist and his family to construct a hyper-gate at Alpha Prime but an unwanted stowaway has plans of his own. Boring movie nothing really to talk about that's how boring this movie is.
Summary: When Hollywood turns to the TV Mine to see what it can dig up, the general rule is to try to do something which recaptures the essence of the TV original, albeit tweaked in some sort of fashion so as to bring it up to date. But sometimes there is an attempt to give a twist to the original - to dress it in clothes which are not so much new as entirely different.
Summary: I don't think Lost in Space was a bad movie. Is it a movie to be honored the all-time best? No, it's not. There are flaws in this movie, but I don't care too much. The movie is about a family, the Robinsons trying to go to the other habitable planet in the galaxy. They do all right until the villain, Spider Smith tries to kill the family and he ruins the navigational system. Now the Robinsons are lost. The acting is OK.
Excerpt: A world government-run space organization is in the process of creating a sort of space gate that will transport the world's population to a recently discovered planet that could sustain humans.

Summary: Now, I don't think it was IMDb Top 250 material, not by far but it still should have been up in the "6"s. First let's look at the basic for the movie. Lost in Space was a television show from 1965 that was very low budget. I. Allen had to work from a shoestring and it showed. The show was a "kiddies" show, something that the kids enjoyed while Mom and Dad was able to snicker at the goofiness of it, (but not too loudly or the kids might get mad).
Summary: Actually, I was quite surprised at how much fun I thought this movie was. Hardly perfect by any measure and, sure, there were some elements that were intrusive, but I found it to be quite faithful to the TV show - it used plots and elements from the early episodes. Even with the newer designs, they incorporated older aspects - the planet REALLY looked like a better version of one of their old sets. Furthermore, Oldman managed to peg Dr.
Summary: I've had mostly bad experiences with movies based off TV shows, and Lost in Space is no exception. Aside from a few interesting effects, this is mediocre sci-fi at its best. One time was enough for me.
Despite a terrific cast and a good beginning, this film just falls flat
