Zathura: A Space Adventure
Source: Catholic News Service
Fancifully entertaining adaptation of Chris Van Allsburg's children's book about two bickering brothers (Jonah Bobo and Josh Hutcherson) who play a magical board game that transports their house into outer space with the only way back being to finish out their turns, with each round bringing new dangers in the form of rampaging robots, meteor storms and ravenous reptilian aliens. Director Jon Favreau combines dazzling visuals and disarming emotion to evoke childlike wonder, while imparting a sentimental message about the importance of family and forgiveness. Recurring fantasy action violence, child peril, some scary images and minimal crude language. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-II -- adults and adolescents. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG -- parental guidance suggested.
