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.

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

A reasonably satisfying family film that updates things while staying true to the adventurous, sci-fi spirit of the originals.

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

This kids' adventure from Disney is amiable with nice performances.

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

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.

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.

Once the action gets going, it's easy to forget that the plot has left for the planet La-La and just enjoy the fun.
April 9, 2009
An unexpectedly entertaining mixture of good, clean Disney fun with some rather more modern action scenes, lent charm by Johnson's natural swagger. One of the better family films in a while.

It's a rattling good chase movie. The young aliens have useful tricks. Johnson is the contractual comic liability. Perfect holiday nonsense.
April 9, 2009
Witch Mountain is a full-throttle adventure that features at least half a dozen cracking action sequences, some adult-pleasing comic one-liners.

One minute Seth is solid enough to stop a speeding 4x4, next he's panicking over an approaching UFO. Such cheating robs the film of tension: we need to know limits to start caring.
April 9, 2009
While this isn't a bad film, it's a touch too dry and maybe even a bit too slow for it to be the rush it should be.
