Danger Will Robinson! This updated version of the classic 60s TV series is loaded with special effects and perhaps too many. It bears little resemblance to the original series, and there are scenes which could be a bit intense for the very young, including the robot’s attack against some of the characters and scenes which include hungry space spiders. Interestingly enough, various actors from the original series have cameos in the film. I was disappointed however that Bill Mumy, who played young Will Robinson on the TV series in the 60s, wasn’t asked to play the grown-up Will in a sequence in the movie. There is a lot of material and action packed into the movie, which runs just over two hours, and it might have been better for the story to have been trimmed a bit. Still, there is a lot visually on the screen which is a feast for the eyes.
There is some language in the film, but it does not hit the three or unacceptable level on our content chart. There are some sexual innuendos as well. We recommend the movie for ages twelve and above due to some of the intense scenes.
