Storyline

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 Anthony Pereyra <hypersonic91@yahoo.com>

i was lost in space
20 May 1999 | by rinsaSee all my reviews

i first saw this in the theatre when it came out, and i only dug it for the special effects on the big screen. as far as story goes, i wasn't totally paying attention, so i kinda missed some of it. so i rented it again today, and now watching it on my tv at home made the effects look small, and the story still sucked even tho i was actually paying attention this time around. i was bored big time after the first hyperspeed burst where they were all suspended in air for 30 seconds. after that i prayed for it to be over soon. lousy acting all around. cheers *snort*
