A Disney adventure with quite a lot going for it, even if it does end up spreading itself too wide for the sakes of the entire family.

A Walt Disney production for children who will watch absolutely anything that moves.

A scifi thriller that's fun, that's cheerfully implausible, that's scary but not too scary, and it works.

They don't make them like this anymore.

provides adventure and excitement that children of all ages can enjoy, but it is not very perilous or violent at all

Pleasant enough, but underwhelming, and curiously lacking in wonder, even in the high-flying finale.

The movie looks pretty cheap, but with Ray Milland and Donald Pleasance as villains, it's still a lot of fun.

Thirty years later, this Disney film still resonates.

March 4, 2005

a good mix of mystery, fantasy, and adventure

November 6, 2004

One of Disney's last great live action classics.

hardly the kind of experience that spawns anyone's desire to buy action figures and vibrating brooms

One of Disney's best and most popular live-action movies, this one is a favorite among those who grow up in the Seventies.

Audience Reviews for Escape to Witch Mountain

This is an okay kids movie, I saw it a long time ago when I was a kid, and I thought it was just okay then too. Maybe I should see it again someday?

Children with psychic abilities journey to discover their origins. Pleasant escapist children's fantasy is pure nostalgia for any adult who saw this movie in their youth.
