In the heart-racing science fiction adventure, Zathura, two squabbling brothers are propelled into deepest, darkest space while playing a mysterious game 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 who runs amok and an intergalactic spaceship battle. Unless they finish the game and reach the planet Zathura, they could be trapped in outer space forever.

Zathura is one of those films that you may have never heard of. I was not familiar with anything about this film, never heard of any of the actors, director, producer etc. I had walked past a poster once for it, but that was it. So wow, what a brilliant surprise when we watched it. If you are a fan of all those 50's/60's Sci-Fi B Movies, taking in a bit of Flash Gordon and never ending story along the way, then you'll love this. Robots, Aliens and Spaceships galore make this a brilliant family action adventure that all the kids and adults will enjoy. With the usual American subplot about family love and the importance of caring for each other. Two brothers find a space adventure game and once they start playing find themselves inside the game in outer space. A simple lighthearted and very colourful film that gets you jumping, screaming and crying all at the right moments. You really get involved with this film, it draws you in so much, then leaves you with a really nice feel good feeling. For those with hearing loss the subtitles were very good too and easy to follow. Highly recommended for an evening with the family. Don't forget your popcorn, the kids will love it.
