In Columbia Pictures' heart-racing sci-fi adventure Zathura, two squabbling brothers are propelled into deepest, darkest space while playing a mysterious game they discovered in the basement of their old house. On their fantastic journey, they are joined by a stranded astronaut and must survive meteor showers, hostile lizard-like aliens, a rocket-propelled robot run amok and an intergalactic spaceship battle. Unless they finish the game and reach the planet Zathura, they could be trapped in outer space forever.
They should make a 2nd one

Sooo cool I love this movie I watch it all the time
1) This movie is great. 2) The movie was based on the book Zathura which was written by the same writer who wrote the book Jumanji (which the movie Jumanji was based on), Chris Van Allsburg. So there was no "copying" or "ripping off" etc. Zathura the movie was meant to be a sequel to Jumanji.
Wish there was a free movie list

I thought this was Jumanji when little, but then I saw it was another movie and I was thinking "Jumanji Wannabe!"
This movie was great when I was 7

It's great, good special effects, good actors (yes even kristen stuart did at LEAST over decent) and the whole movie has a good story line of family love, so I would give it a huge recommendation
Its one of those movies u can watch over and over without getting bored!
At first I was saying wow rip off of Jumanji but then I saw who wrote it.. AMAZING story. Great acting! Especially on Kristen Stewart's part. Josh Hutcherson? Yes..
Get me a juice box, biatch. I was dying with my friends, then my little sister said it to my mom. They didn't end well for anyone
THAT'S HOW GOOD IT IS! Kristen Stewart played her part very well. And so did that little boy. They all played great! I really recommend for families.

This movie reminded me a lot of Jumanji. Except this was the space version of it.
1. Little Josh!!!!! Sooo cute 2. Kristin stewart actually has expression!
the older brother in this movie is Peeta
This is a great movie! If you've seen Jumanji you'd love this. Don't listen to the people down there, I don't understand why people are saying this is "RIP OFF" of Jumanji because it is not. It is by the same author who wrote Jumanji, which is a jungle based board game, this is space, and they are pretty much exactly opposite save the magical board game!
This movie spaced the house up. It was so cool . I really liked josh's part.
It really isn't just a carbon copy of Jumanji, although it does follow the same premise. Two boys find a game, and stuff happens. The acting is amazing. These two actors, one of which grew up to be...uhm, amazingly attractive. (Josh is such a perfect specimen.) did amazing. Josh at 13 could pretty much hold his own. Kristin Stewert actually had facial expressions in this movie! But yes. It's an amazing movie full of humour, drama, and siblings growing back together. I recommend it highly.

The characters are annoying, and the story doesn't make as much sense as you'd like, but it's suspensful, kind-of entertaining, and delivers a unique and effective message about brotherhood near the end. The story is, on the surface, not as compelling as that of its spiritual predecesor, but the effects are vastly improved.
This is one of the best sci-fi films I have seen in a long time

A journey of cosmic proportions! Zathura is every kids dream, a game that lets you experience a sci-fi medley firsthand. What kid could ask for anything more? This film has (by far) the awesomest theme somg ever in sci-fi history.
Very good movie!
Kristen Stewart is so weird in this movie:)
I was watching zathura with my sister when my mum bring it back to video club. I and my sistre we always quarrel

I really loved the movie I think it was really good and funny I really liked how Kristen Stewart played Lisa she played the roll very good she's also my favorite actress!!! So I think a lot of people should watch the movie and I hope they enjoy it like i did!!!!
The Zathura books came out BEFORE the Jumunji books so don't say there copying. Zathura gets 4 stars!

I ignored this movie simply because I thought it was going to be a copycat of Jumanji. But, having nothing to do, I sat down and watched it to find that it is indeed very funny and follows it's own unique story. I simply fell off my rocker when the little boy was running around the living room screaming, "Take evasive action; take eveasive action!" And when he was hungry and asked his brother what he knew how to cook, he said "Water". Simple lines, yet classic in their own right. Great to watch with the kids, but the little buggers are not needed to enjoy yourself.

I love this movie it's super cool!! You know the part when there house gose up into space huh?! Yea that part Is the best!! But they say the d word in the beging of the movie it it your such a Dick!
itunee you guys spelt Kristen Stewarts last name wrong. its Stewart not Stuart. just hought you guys should know. awesome movie. loved it.
i love this movie so much! the acting is really believable and i love the whole concept. it is definitely different than Jumajii but anyone who liked Jumajii should still see it! PS. There was a typo in the cast list. Kristen Stewart's last name isn't spelled Stuart. Itunes, please correct it because she did an awesome job and deserves to be recognized! she is an amazing actress! :)
i've basically given my opinion. but if i were to chose what this movie would be rated, it would be PG-13. my reason being is there are sequences of peril and scary images in this film. when my family is trying to chose which movie to watch, my 10-year-old sister would probably say "no. it's too scary." she is terrified of it. still, great movie.
This movie is a great movie to see with the whole family. I liked this movie a lot because I will keep you on the edge of your seat. This movie also has a shocking ending. So if you like exciting movies you won't find a more exciting movie.

iTunes you mispelled kristin's last name.She's the same girl from twilight
I think this movie is really great, espically with the characters in the Movie. Way to go Zathura!

My whole family watched this flick. We all loved it! You knew what it was about, true. You could predict a lot of the scenes. But it was fun and entertaining. It was as close to a real safe, fun, family film as you get these days.
See in the credits, They list Kristen "Stuart". Her name is infact spelled Kristen Stewart, the same girl who plays the lead, Bella, in 'Twilight'. Just thought I'd share...
Hey, my subject line said it all.But did anyone notice that in the credits, iTunes put Kristen Stuert- it's Kristen Stewart, as in Bella in Twilight!
Where can I start? It's just bad I didn't like one single thing about this movie. I'd like to give it a - star rating, but sadly they don't exsist.
terrible acting, plot holes, and the worst part is tht they spat onto the face of jumanji which is soo much better
Itunes spelled kristen STEWART's name wrong. its stewart not stuart. this really irks me. c'mon! shes in TWILIGHT, PANIC ROOM, THE MESSENGERS. how hard is it to spell her name right?! please fix this. btw, this is a really good movie.
