Did not live up to my expectations. Though it was entertaining. Did not like the design of the Robot. Too much like "No 5 is alive".

I loved lost in space... I wish they would make a new series based on it.

Yeah new Robot bugged me at first- I got over that. It was only the couple of things I mentioned above that made the movie less than a full success for me. Basically they missed it by that much IMO.

It was weird, in some ways... It was like they were deliberately blowing off what was working, to create something... less...

I mean, I loved the whole Jupiter 1 launch sequence... then the outer hull gets blown off, and they are left with something that looked like a cross between a hero sandwich, and the Millineum Falcon...

I LOVED the new robot deign. Huge, imposing, very practical. Then it gets eaten by spiders, and we spend the rest of the movie with a version of it that looks like it wandered into a back alley and was stripped by a street gang for parts.

Then they casually say the chariot, and the spacepod are toast...

I swear, if it weren't for Lacey being so damned cute... I would have walked out. Talk about missing the point of an Irwin Allen production! I.A. shows were more about cool engineering, and cold war tension than they ever were about the characters. (Something he shared with Gerry Anderson) But there was always that pulp adventure vibe going on in the background...

So much of that was missing from the movie. I agree with Beastie, though... it was a near miss.

It's been some time since I saw the film - I used to have it on DVD but sold it on. I remember thinking that it wasn't too bad at the start, until the time displacement nonsense started up. Then it got confusing for a bit, then it just all became a mess.

You know that there's probably someone out there right now planning a reboot of the series or film.

Couldn't be any worse than Sci Fi's recent "Flash Gordon" video poop. Or as I like to call it, "Stargate: Mongo."

Or their awful reboot of L. Frank Baum, "Tinman." Or as I like to call it, "Stargate: Oz"

Be careful what you wish for.

I never caught the LIS movie but I was a big fan of the series. I agree that the earlier episodes were better. I'm not sure why I passed on the movie but I think at the time my feeling was that I really liked the series and I felt that the movie was going to try to make it something that the series was not meant to be. Wait, that sounds familiar....
