The Movie: Big budget, effects-infused update of the classic ‘60s TV series – with added A-list star power.
Lost In Space may have grand aspirations (it wants to be the next Star Wars), but it never truly thrills. It's a strange combination of kiddy-pandering daftness and impenetrable time paradoxes that confuse more than compel.
As swaggering hero Major Don West, LeBlanc is fine, if simply playing a sci-fi version of Joey Tribbiani. Somewhat fittingly, Lost In Space ends up resembling exactly the kind of cruddy B-movies that Joey comically lands in Friends.
