It is better than the last action comedy involving a taxi.

Dwayne Johnson simply misses the mark.

A touch violent for a PG-rated film, but quite exciting in its best stretches, too.

... Race To Witch Mountain will have you racing to the theatre this weekend and asking only one question when you leave - when do we get the sequel!

The Rock is always fun to watch, and Robb and Ludwig are quite good as the two alien teens.

Johnson does all he can to carry the film, but ultimately "Race" is stuck in neutral -- spinning its wheels with one mind-numbing sequence after another.

While it's hardly genre-changing, this is a nice dose of fun, family entertainment.

Everything about this "Race" comes off as a cheap also-ran, with little of that ol' Disney magic anywhere to be found.

While the shootouts and sprinting manage to entertain in a decidedly PG fashion, Fickman's little touches stuffed into the corners of the frame lend Race the personality it dearly needs.

Race to Witch Mountain is pretty standard kiddie fare: Cute, precocious children are protected by a world-weary, wisecracking father figure and one-liners abound.

Boring and unoriginal, this new version might have some fancy visuals and a loud soundtrack but they're just a smokescreen for how boring and lifeless the film is.
August 14, 2009
A reasonably satisfying family film that updates things while staying true to the adventurous, sci-fi spirit of the originals.

If it's possible for a movie to be agressively bland, Race to Witch Mountain is that movie. [Blu-ray]
August 7, 2009
...suffers from a pervasively stagnant atmosphere that effectively drains the energy right out of its high-octane moments...

Race with your kids to see it.

There are no sustained characters of any kind, despite some capable acting talent. There is no believable relationship between the characters. There is no attempt to develop any of the political issues the film touches upon.

Race to Witch Mountain is the first kids' film in ages to have action beats that measure up to Hollywood's grownup action fare.
