''The longest and most expensive toy commercial in history?'' Like Mission Impossible and Leave it to Beaver (and even The Brady Bunch), this is the film version of a popular American TV series from yesteryear. The premise is the same - a nice, perfect family on a space mission to save earth, gets lost in space, with a baddy on board.
The film has great special effects, but the critics were underwhelmed. No doubt the masses will love it, although the IMDB rating is rather low for a popular film.

Johlene Gonin: A roller-coaster comic book ride which unfortunately is too easy to criticise. Accepted for what it was it was great fun.... with a poor plot, weak script, mediocre acting and a predictability rating of 6 out of 10. (0 = gobsmacked 10 = no surprises).
Desmond Andriesse: Great effects, but an exceptionally soapy story.
Bruce Humphrey: Ja..well..no..fine! Good movie.
Nick Soper: A real flop in my book. I expected much more. Even the special effects were dissappointing. They were good as far as computer effects go, but not nearly believable enough, unlike those in Jurassic Park. This movie seems more aimed at the younger generation. Maybe I should have done my homework before paying for the ticket!
Niki Pretorius: Nice movie, but I was very disappointed with the end.
