Excerpt: The movie is not as good as Jumanji, but it's a nice children adventure film, which I like. PQ: No compression related artifacts could be observed. Nothing distracting at all, besides minor banding in one or two scenes, but it's more of the blink and you will miss it kind, so there is nothing to worry about. I believe this is completely true to its source. It's not the sharpest movie out there, but it's very filmic and detailed.
Summary: "Zathura" is "Jumanji" in space. Acting is significantly inferior to its predecessor, and the only thing the film can boast about is its spectacular visuals. If you liked "Jumanji", watch it, but it is merely the same thing recycled with a different setting and uninspired performances.
Summary: Zathura: A Space Adventure is a big spectacle of a movie that doesn't come out of its shell enough for its true potential to show. Instead, it goes for a more family-friendly approach that is good for what it is.
Summary: It's extremely far from the best SCI-FI film ever made, but Zathura contains exceptional special effects, often yet spaced excitement and decent performances from Hutcherson, Bobo and Shepard.
Summary: Zathura is a film that doesn't deserve too much attention. It is pretty much a bad film that has a good story and really bad special effects and ever worse actors which is a shame as it is a great idea and the result is a silly film that will be forgotten in some years as it has nothing special Such a shame
Summary: Basically Zathura is the Sci-Fi version of Jumanji. While there are several cameos, the young cast carries the movie and you can sort of see why today names like Josh Hutcherson and Kristen Stewart are household names. The young cast does a great job, especially when you consider that most of the special effects were computer generated, and the majority of acting was done in front of a Basically Zathura is the Sci-Fi version of Jumanji.
Excerpt: what started out as a sequel to Jumanji became it's adventure itself. This time settling on the outer space theme with deadly robots and lizard like aliens. Featuring Tim Robbins in a few guest cameos along with a pre-twilight Kristen Stewart this movie is on equal ground as Jumanji and offers up the usual banter of kids acting like kids and having to figure out what the hell is going on and how to get back home.
