Critic Reviews for Under the Mountain
Overall, Under the Mountain is just OK. It's not terrible (and Sam Neill is always welcome), but there are better kids' sci-fi movies out there.
Audience Reviews for Under the Mountain
Script was poor as well as costume design. They dressed up the film with some CGIs which was colorful but didn't help the storyline much.
Not exciting and only semi-stupid. I guess would be a decent weekend flick for a 12 year old.
Rachel and Theo are red headed twins who share a telepathic link, meaning they are able to communicate without words and on occasion feel what the other feels. After their mom is killed in an accident, they're sent to live with their aunt, uncle and cousin in Auckland, a city built on a string of volcanoes. Theo is hit hard by his mother's death, and abandons Rachel emotionally forcing her to cope on her own. But when the twins discover the creepy people who live across the lake aren't really people but shape-shifting creatures, the mysterious Mr. Jones (Sam Neill) reveals that the twins are the only ones who can save the world from these alien invaders that lurk beneath Auckland's ring of seven extinct volcanoes. It seems that Mr. Jones was actually the only survivor from the last planet these monsters moved into and only he has the knowledge to help save the world from the evil Gargantua, malevolent beasties who are within days of rising up and turning our world into their own personal mud bath but it's up to teenagers to wield the power.
