Jumanji in Space! ZATHURA
Pros: Action packed family friendly adventure movie with brilliant Special Effects.
Cons: It is Jumanji in space, without Robin Williams. You decide if that is a con.
Not great cinema, but a fun movie, and a good way to keep the kids occupied for two hours. Read More at Epinions.com

Jumanji in Space
Pros: a good subplot with lots of heart, some suspense
Cons: low-rent effects, ironically lacks imagination
Not quite a thrillride, this family adventure is heartfelt fun, if you can overlook the illogic of the story. Read More at Epinions.com

Wait, did they remake Jimanji in space?
Pros: Family Film
Kristen Stewart's Performance
Cons: The rest of the cast
Cashing in on Jimanji's success, Zathura offers so little. My kids couldnt' sit through it, and I do NOT RECOMMEND this film. Rent it if you must see it. Read More at Epinions.com
