Reviews

Entertainment Weekly - Scott Brown
Zathura is a rarity: a stellar fantasy that faces down childhood anxieties with feet-on-the-ground maturity.

L.A. Weekly - Scott Foundas
The result is a glorious low-tech pleasure that may be the most lyrical, phantasmagoric boys' adventure story since Joe Dante's Explorers.

ReelViews - James Berardinelli
Will work better for younger viewers than older ones. There's not much plot to absorb and there's plenty of action, so this is the kind of spectacle that will appeal to those without long attention spans.

The Hollywood Reporter - Unnamed
Favreau again delivers that rare beast -- a family film that even childless adults can enjoy.

Variety - Justin Chang
Its unwieldy title notwithstanding, Zathura: A Space Adventure is arguably the best adaptation of a Chris Van Allsburg book to date.
