Zathura: A Space Adventure
Adventure Is Waiting
After their father (Tim Robbins) is called into work, two young boys, Walter (Josh Hutcherson) and Danny (Jonah Bobo), are left in the care of their teenage sister, Lisa (Kristen Stewart), and told they must stay inside. Walter and Danny, who anticipate a boring day, are shocked when they begin playing Zathura, a space-themed board game, which they realize has mystical powers when their house is shot into space. With the help of an astronaut (Dax Shepard), the boys attempt to return home.
Take another jumanji.
It's Jumanji in space! Weeeeee!
What a cute little flick, all entertaining and fun.
A good film to end this challenge with.
Zathura has been easily compared to the 1995 fantasy comedy, Jumanji, and it’s no secret why. Both films share similar plotlines. However, this film has more of a science fiction edge to the story that makes it a bit different. If you forget the similarities between the films, this is a fun, entertaining picture that is worth seeing because there are several worthwhile moments due to a well crafted script, good cast and good direction from director Jon Favreau. The film has good effects, and plenty of thrills to really make it a highly entertaining picture from start to finish. The film isn’t perfect, but for the most part, it’s a worthwhile affair that is sure to appeal to genre…
its like jumanji but worse
Favreau takes the book and crafts into this ridiculous fun movie with so much heart. I felt like a 12 year old watching it.
"Meteorites. Take evasive action."
This movie transports me back to my childhood. Zathura is great space adventure and I enjoyed from beginning to end, it's entertaining and funny. I really liked Jumanji when I was a kid, fantasy adventure movie about a supernatural board game. This one is next level. Jumanji in space with a lot of cool stuff. The kid actors go great together, and Tim Robbins was also good in a very small part. Special effects are also impressive.
Zathura as a family movie it is truly excellent, and one of best family movies for sure.

Same concept as Jumanji but with a space theme. Good special effects and story. Cute film to watch on a Sunday afternoon with the family. Not brilliant but primarily a kids film you can stick them in front of.
Unoriginal movie tries to be different.
The plot is simple for viewers of all ages to understand and relate to. But despite the impressive-looking graphics, there are somewhat few characters and almost no change of setting - the house (which gets a bit old). Jumanji was better.
Yes it's basically Jumanji in space. As fun and cool as that sounds, it's neither.
And despite being frozen for most of the film, Kristen Stewart gives as much emotion frozen as she does in any role.
Better than Jumanji
Dawn of the Planet of Jumanji
amg space jumanji
I've seen this movie get alot of praise and good reviews, but to be honest, there was nothing exceptional that totally blew me away. Simple premise, along the same lines of Jumanji, however, set in space. Some good effects and visuals, and some pretty decent acting from the 2 kids that the entire movie is pretty much built around. A decent watch, kids would, and should, love it! 2.5/5
Oh, a young Kristen Stewart! Nice.......
