|Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis:
In 2058, with the hope of opening a gateway to a new planet for denizens of the overcrowded Earth, a family is launched into space, accompanied by a he-man pilot and the weasely doctor who tried to sabotage the journey. The 1960s TV series is re-created on a lavish scale, with impressive effects and cavernous sets, but hurt by crudely episodic story, grim tone, and paper-thin characters. Oldman, curiously, underplays the role of Dr. Smith, the inept saboteur. Angela Cartwright, Mark Goddard, Marta Kristen, and June Lockhart, stars of the original TV series, have cameo roles. Panavision.
