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

    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.

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