If like me you grew up with a weekly dose of Lost in Space on ITV then this film is something of a shock to the system. Whilst parts of it are great (the launch of the Jupiter 1 gets me nostalgic every time) whilst for the most part its pretty shoddy. The family for the most part are unlikeable, the kids being the "aren't we smart and cute" instantly forgettable cyphers that the originals were not. THe parents are just bland and not at all the All American Mom and Dad of the show (not that they need to be - but they needed to be SOMETHING other than bodies spouting lines)

Perhaps only Dr Smith gets any real attention here and he is so far removed from the loveable rogue he should be as to be a new character.

The transfer of the blu-ray is good but not brilliant and the extras are pretty forgettable too.

If you want lost in space buy the DVD of season one and see how it should be done.

If you love this film then it is worth buying the Blu ray as the special effects stand out from the moment the film starts to the end of the film, I was really impressed how this film has been transferred to Blu Ray. The sound is crystal clear and loud. I though I would write about picture quality and sound as a lot of reviews spend too much time going on telling you the film when you already know what the film is about and not the important bits which what the picture quality and sound are like so that you can make your own mind up as to whether you should buy it or not.

I am slowly replacing my old videos with DVDs. This film version of a beloved TV series when I was a child is a disappointment. Apart from a good in-character performance from the Dr, the whole is not that good. Whatever is the opposite of "the icing on the cake" "(the poo on my shoe"?), the DVD version is also of poor picture quality.

I must confess to growing up with the original series so if like me you know the TV series you'll probably like this. Thankfully my myopic vision and failing memory means I am not wedded to one interpretation like some die-hard fans. This 1998 version is hammy and tongue in cheek but I really enjoyed it! There are lots of nice references to the original series for fans, including a cameo from June Lockhart who played Dr Maureen Robinson the first time around. The special effects are very good and it's fun and action packed throughout. Gary Oldman plays an interesting if rather darker version of Dr Smith but remains true to his manipulative original furthermore you get a bit of his back story. For Friends fans Matt Le Blanc does his hero bit whilst poking a bit of fun at himself. I think this one is a bargain and is cheaper than a rental if you look around. I am sure you'll go back and watch it again.

With the Earth running short of natural energy resources, the Jupiter mission to colonise Alpha Prime seems to be the only chance of survival.

Professor John Robinson together with his family and fighter pilot Don West, lead a desperate attempt to create a Hyper-Gate around the planet Alpha Prime to enable the rescue of Earth to begin.

However, others have different reasons for reaching Alpha Prime and Dr. Smith sabotages the Jupiter 2, but fails to escape and becomes an unwelcome stowaway aboard the ship.

To escape the pull of the sun, the Hyper-Drive is fired and the Jupiter 2, after a trip through hyperspace, emerges into a completely unknown part of the galaxy.

A search reveals that they are completely lost in an uncharted sector of space but this is only the beginning of their problems...

Wasn't 1998 a terrible year for summer blockbusters? We had The Avengers (non-Marvel), Godzilla, Six Days and Seven Nights, and this, a resurgence of a long forgotten TV show, and a showcase for one of the cast of Friends, which were rife around this time.

But in order to deter the poor acting of Joey, Hopkins implemented to credibility of Hurt, Rogers, and Oldman to keep the viewer hooked, with very differing results.

Hurt is fine, as is Rogers, but it seems that Oldman has been given the bad guy book of sniping one-liners, because that is all his character delivers, and then some.

Seventeen years down the line, it's aged tremendously, and those effects that seemed pretty special on the big screen, are blooming awful now.

Surrprise

You could have blown me over with a whisper at the time but this is OK they put a TV cast in a Big Movie and it works sort of

We all know the story so you like you don't like but it looks relay good ion fact there are movies made to day don't look this good

The cast are good mum and dad are a bit woody but every one else is OK in fact Mt is good (honest) why doesn't it work well its the plot

It starts OK but we never find out why or what the idea is of the evil side which i think is what gose wrong for some reason we get a time travel plot for the final third that is bad actually its shocking

because we don't do anything with the other plots with the love story, the bad guys on earth, the other ship with the only black charecter and the spiders/monkie we are left hanging to follow a boy with a strop on about daddy ignoring him terrible idea
