Review of Lost in Space

I remember liking this one when I was a kid after first catching it on cable, then I never rewatched it again until I bought this one on DVD a decade later. Needless to say, "Lost in Space" was terrible then I thought was going to be. It's got a decent cast at the front (William Hurt, Gary Oldman, Mimi Rogers, Matt LeBlanc, Heather Graham, Lacey Chabert) and was based on a popular 60s TV series, which I haven't watched but I can tell it would be a lot better than the film we got. Whereas the show had a campy charm, the movie has none of the camp factor and instead ended up just being pretty boring. Some of the CGI effects haven't aged well, the most notable being Blarp the space monkey, who looks pretty creepy, as well as the directing by Stephen Hopkins ("Predator 2", "Blown Away") being clumsy. This was another black mark in screenwriter Akiva Goldsman's uneven career ("Batman & Robin", "The Da Vinci Code", "Winter's Tale", etc.) and two planned sequels ended up being cancelled due to not living up to blockbuster expectations as well as fans of the show disliking the film a whole lot. It's best that you just avoid "Lost in Space" and instead watch a better TV-to-film adaptation like "The Fugitive" or "Mission: Impossible" than this one.
