How can someone f*ck up a sci-fi adventure movie, based on a successful tv series, with stars like William Hurt and Gary f*cking Oldman, and eye-candy like Heather Graham and Mimi Rogers? If you want the easiest answer to that question, just start watching LOST IN SPACE (the movie). If you can comfortably make it through the whole thing, then congrats.
What really pissed me off was that the flick had such a promising opening with some cool space action and suspense. It was able to convince me that Matt LeBlanc could be taken seriously as anything beyond a dumbass named "Joey". Sadly, after that blast of a beginning, all I was hand-fed was cheese upon grilled cheese of stilted dialogue and performances that seemed more interested in cashing a check rather than showing some respect to the viewers. Such wooden walking through the motions. Except for maybe Oldman, but even he can't save this ship. I can't help but wonder whether someone told the entire cast that the special effects were going to be so amazing that they needn't bother with bringing any real feeling to the table.
Another thing that pissed me off, and was so clearly evident, was the fact that either the studio or the filmmakers were pandering the flick towards children. From the goofy robots to the stupid space monkey alien intelligently named Blarp to the heavy focus on the Robinson's two youngest children, everything felt like an insult to the adults who were watching. Maybe somebody thought that this would make the proceedings more fun, but in reality, all we get is a whole heaping helping of brainless manure. Too bad, because underneath this muddled mess, there could have been an enjoyable sci-fi romp.
Audio English or Spanish dolby digital with English, Spanish and French subtitles.
There were 2 commentary tracks: one by Stephen Hopkins and writer, Akiva Goldsman, and the other by visual effects supervisors, Angus Bickerton and Lauren Ritchie, director of photography, Peter Levy, editor, Ray Lovejoy, & producer, Carla Fry. Neither were super interesting. Nobody wants to hear from writers and producers and such when you have such big names as stars. Where's my Oldman and Hurt commentary?!
A couple of deleted scenes that would have only further hurt the flick's two-hour-plus run time.
Two short featurettes about the special effects and the future of space.
An okay music video by Apollo Four Forty.
Some fun interviews with the original cast members of the Lost in Space tv show. This was at least a nice tip of the hat.
Lastly, a theatrical trailer.
