Packed with more than 750 dazzling visual effects, this $70 million adventure does more ( and less ) than give the 1965-68 TV series a state-of-the-art face-lift. Aimed at an audience that wasn't born when the series originally aired, the sci-fi extravaganza doesn't even require familiarity, despite cameo appearances by several of the TV show's original cast members. Instead it's a high-tech hybrid of the original premise with enough sensory overload to qualify as a spectacular big-screen video game, supported by a time-travel premise that's adequately clever but hardly original. It's certainly never boring, and visually it's an occasionally awesome demonstration of special effects technology. But in its attempt to be all things to all demographics, the movie's more of a marketing ploy than a satisfying adventure, thankfully dispensing with the TV show's cheesy camp but otherwise squandering a promising cast in favor of eye-candy and ephemeral storytelling. In keeping with the movie's high-tech appeal, the DVD is a feature-packed marvel, including two audio commentaries, deleted scenes, two featurettes covering special effects and the original TV series ( featuring complete biographies and episode guides ), the original screenplay, and interactive games.


TV's Robinson family takes a galactic wrong turn with state-of-the-art visuals and effects. Starring William Hurt ( One True Thing, Michael ) and Gary Oldman ( Air Force One, The Fifth Element ) as Dr. Smith.
