Man, they sure did destroy that house. 'Zathura: A Space Adventure' is a solid family advantage, but man does it have some tense scenes. I was the right age when I watched this movie.

What's not to be scared about.

The effects are real enough to imply danger, but logic is not a function of children's games, so it does not matter that oxygen, gravity and warmth still exist in the house, even as it is blasted apart by …
