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

The Jupiter 1 (the booster stage for the Jupiter 2 craft) bears a strong resemblance to the craft in the original Lost in Space (1965) TV series. See more »

I cant say it was a bad movie, but it wasn't an excellent movie either. It was an averagely entertaining movie, good idea for a remake film, but it kind of collapsed into itself. They had to many little story arcs that was never finished or continued. Yet some of them suddenly popped up at the end of the film and created very interesting and unpredictable events. And this I think saved the movie, it had a good closure on it's early main theme (if you have seen the movie you know what I'm talking about).
Basically the movie is about a family (the Robinsons) that is sent on a mission to create a "beacon" of sorts on another life supporting planet (it far away but still the closest on to earth) so that earth can use its hyperdrive travelling to save earths resources. The problem is hyperdrive is completely random unless someone is sending a signal from the final destination. So the family and they're pilot is send on a ten year sleep journey. Only problem is a saboteur cases the ship to shift its trajectory towards the sun, and they're only escape is to use the hyperdrive, which of course sends them to a random place in the galaxy.
The cast was OK. Matt Leblanc reminded me bit of a military version of Joey (his most know role in Friends) but it worked out well I think. Gary Oldman as the typical evil bad guy was also pretty OK. The rest of the family wasn't that special, but it wasn't bad either. but I didn't quite catch the point of the "space monkey" thingy (again you know if you've seen the film) But I think it was an entertaining film, far from the best Sci-Fi film I've seen, but not bad at all. 6/10.
