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

Cue a not very dazzling chase movie.

This surely has to be the last of the series.

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 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.

It's a rattling good chase movie. The young aliens have useful tricks. Johnson is the contractual comic liability. Perfect holiday nonsense.

The planet-hopping children have special talents -- telekinesis, telepathy etc. -- although it is the high-wattage lovability of Mr. Rock that's the real superpower on display here.

There is so much in this film that needed to be tweaked and enhanced to really make it special.
March 16, 2009
I think most kids and certainly most adults are going to find themselves bored.

Witch Mountain isn't escapism but a feature-length reminder that things are bad all over.

If Disney insists on raiding its own vaults for remakes, maybe they'll have better luck with The Laser-Vision, Missile-Launching, Face-Shredding Cat from Outer Space.

The movie has Johnson, who lifts the script above its conventional cat-and-mouse stratagems with his buoyant wiseacre timing.
March 13, 2009
Wow, when Disney misses the 'reimagining' mark, it really misses.
March 13, 2009
This is not a story that cries out to be remade every 15-20 years. And, while the special effects and acting are getting better, the story isn't.
March 13, 2009
For all that energy, the film never really goes into orbit.
March 13, 2009
Bears all the signs of having been composed by an inferior race of alien screenwriters from the Hackulon System.
March 13, 2009
A fast and furious wild ride of a movie in which the good guys are good, the bad guys are good and the car chases are pretty spectacular.
