Excerpt: If you're not too long in the tooth or have kids of your own, you'll probably be pretty familiar with Jumanji. It's the movie where Robin Williams gets trapped inside a board game and is released years later. Zathura, while not sharing the jungle setting, has many similarities. Some kids find a board game which happens to be more than it seems, and moments later they find their house has been sent into space and they're battling monsters.
Excerpt: Without a doubt, the majority of the viewers reading this review will know the film, Jumanji ; if not, what were you doing in 1995′ Jumanji , starring Robin Williams, was based around a boy named Alan, who mysteriously vanished, but didn’t vanish normally ‘ just into a board game ‘ Jumanji . So, I suppose you’re wondering why I’m telling you this right’ Well, Zathura is the sequel of Jumanji , but it isn’t a sequel as such.

Zathura was supposed to be the world finally giving me what I wanted. Everything was supposed to work itself out and rectify my disappointed in childhood but that is not what happened, that is not what happened at all.
Excerpt: Et spil bygget over en film - det kommer jo ikke som den helt vilde overraskelse. Zathura var kort inde at vende i biograferne tidligere på året - uden at efterlade sig det vilde indtryk.
