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

Dwayne Johnson simply misses the mark.

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.
September 29, 2011
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.
August 15, 2009
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 12, 2009
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...
June 4, 2009
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.

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.'
April 23, 2009
Johnson holds his own against the cute wunderkinder, but nobody's a match for the f/x onslaught of the noisy climax.
April 17, 2009
The result is a disappointingly unadventurous adventure, with characters and events that never involve us.
April 17, 2009
Cue a not very dazzling chase movie.
April 17, 2009
This surely has to be the last of the series.
April 16, 2009
In the long run, one would be advised to walk slowly and sluggishly, not race hurriedly, to the so-called new and improved findings at weak-kneed Witch Mountain.
April 10, 2009
This is a great idea that doesn't reach the heights it should.
April 9, 2009
It's pacy all right, but glib and uninvolving for grown-ups, though perhaps furnished with enough in the way of spaceships, lasers and digital explosions to pacify undemanding little 'uns of an afternoon.
April 9, 2009
Race To Witch Mountain promises sci-fi but ultimately delivers lo-fi. Its themes are predictable and its look generic: this is one Race you may want to sit out.
April 9, 2009
The cast of Race to Witch Mountain do their best, but they're let down by some poor effects and a lazy script.
