Race to Witch Mountain

Critics Consensus

Despite the best efforts of a talented cast, Race to Witch Mountain is a tepid reboot that lacks the magic of the original.

Audience Reviews for Race to Witch Mountain

  • May 03, 2014
    A terrible attempt to revive a classic Disney series, Race to Witch Mountain is garbage. The story follows a Las Vegas taxi driver who picks up two unusual teenagers who are on the run from the government. The Rock and AnnaSophia Robb bring a certain charisma to their roles, but Alexander Ludwig is toxic to the film. And the writing is awful; particularly the dialog. Additionally, the series continuity is thrown out in favor of a mash up of a bunch of cheesy sci-fi tropes. Race to Witch Mountain is poorly made and has none of the charm of the original films.

    Boring and cheesy, Dwayne is on a tipping point with these kids movies.

    Dwayne Johnson should have stuck with wrestling, because he's not a very good actor. Despite his lousy efforts in this movie, however, it's not bad overall. Very rushed and cheesily written, but at least it never bored me. Neat special effects and a decent Disney feature, worth watching once. I hope to God though that "The Rock" will throw in the towel soon. Because he added nothing to the film, but an auto-piloted, painfully strained, where's-my-check type of performance.

    This is not an epic movie. 'Race To Witch Mountain' is family entertainment with a catchy script, good execution and CGI that doesn't disappoint the viewer!
