My rating is ten on Zathura!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The movie is about two brothers one is Danny the other is Walter. Walter [the oldest] who doesn't want Danny [the youngest] around anymore. The boys can't lay off their father for one second!

So their dad goes to a meeting and Danny hits Walter with a baseball. Danny hides in a square box that leads to the basement and Walter lowers him down to the basement!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Then Danny finds a game called Zathura and Walter doesn't want to play the game.

But Danny won't listen he turns the key and presses go then a card pops out and Walter reads the card to Danny. The card said METEOR SHOWER GO IN THE FACE OF ACTION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Soon meteors came falling in the living room.

So they went to tell Lisa to tell her what happened to the living room but Lisa doesn't belive it. Later they meet an astronaut from the game they were in. He helped them with the Zorgons by setting a couch on fire. But they come back and have the game and the living room. The astronaut tries to get the game but there were to many Zorgons in the basement.

They decide that Danny will go to get it but that wasn't the right one! Danny finds out it is in the Zorgon ship and is about to be burned!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Danny has to get it before that happens. On the way to the rescue he saw a goat with four eyes and stepped in Zorgon poo which glowed and gave him tracks to be found by Zorgons. Danny escaped though and they started again and Walter got a shooting star and wished for a football signed by a famous football player. But Danny won the game and they found out that Zathura was a BLACK HOLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lisa and Walter fell in it but everything came back to normal and Lisa and Walter came back home too. The brothers got along and they lived happily ever after.

I recommend this movie for kids five and up. There is a robot that is a little scary for my four year old brother.
