In the year 2058, the Earth will soon be uninhabitable after the irreversible effects of pollution and global warming! Professor John Robinson, lead scientist of the Jupiter 2 Mission, will lead his family to the habitable planet Alpha Prime to prep it for colonization. The Jupiter 2 is equipped with a hyperdrive that allows faster-than-light travel, which will eventually be employed to evacuate the citizens of Earth. However hypergates must be constructed on Earth and Alpha Prime to provide stable points of departure and arrival. Dr. Zachary Smith is bribed by a terrorist organization to sabotage the mission, and ends up an unwilling stowaway as the ship blasts off. Written by

There's one obvious thing about "Lost in Space" -- nobody believed in it. Not the actors, most of whom have trouble delivering their idiotic lines (even the brilliant Gary Oldman seems at a loss); certainly not the "creative" personnel, who left the sets, costumes, and film editing as much a hastily cobbled mess as the script; and, sadly, not the special effects engineers. What should be a SFX extravaganza turns dull and lifeless when the computer-generated effects are this bad -- and there should be no mercy whatever for the creators of that phony CGI monkey-thing, named "Burp" or something similar, obviously inserted in the film to allow Marketing to have a plush doll. If there's any consolation to sitting through this refuse, it's the certainty that there will be no sequel; there will be no "Burp" doll; the figurines that were made will be in clearance bins by now; and "Lost in Space" will irrevokably harm the careers of all involved. More comfort than you'll get from "Independance Day"...
