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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

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]

...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.

In 35 years, people probably will have forgotten 'Race to Witch Mountain' the way my generation has amnesia when it comes to its 1975 predecessor 'Escape to Witch Mountain.'

Johnson holds his own against the cute wunderkinder, but nobody's a match for the f/x onslaught of the noisy climax.

The result is a disappointingly unadventurous adventure, with characters and events that never involve us.

There are decent special effects, and Johnson can play it tough while also being a kid-friendly presence.

Cue a not very dazzling chase movie.

Family audiences in search of Easter entertainment will not feel disappointed by what is basically one long chase and the film will make a great theme-park ride.

This surely has to be the last of the series.

The pre-Star Wars Disney sci-fi adventure Escape to Witch Mountain gets a 21st-century reboot here, with beefed-up action, hyperactive editing and even a few shout-outs to George Lucas's blockbuster classic thrown into the mix.
