THE OPINION:

I liked this version of the classic TV show, it has all the famous one liners but John Robinson and Dr. Smith did not have beards.

+ ONE LINERS (All the clever one liners they had in the series)
+ EFFECTS (Great visual effects from the ship to monster Dr. Smith)
+ STORY (Great Story, I want a part 2)

ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES):

- BEARDS (John Robinson and Dr. Smith never had beards)
