Race to Witch Mountain

Rated PG 2009

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and director Andy Fickman (The Game Plan) reteam for this action-driven update of Disney's Escape to Witch Mountain (1975) and Return From Witch Mountain (1978). Johnson plays a Las Vegas cabbie whose two fares, a teenage brother and sister (Alexander Ludwig and AnnaSophia Robb), turn out to be aliens trying to recover their spacecraft from a secret government laboratory. With its chase scenes, shoot-outs, explosions, and special effects, this looks more like Jerry Bruckheimer product than a traditional Disney feature. But there are also some lighthearted moments, the best occurring at a UFO convention where the aliens seem more normal than the earthlings. With Carla Gugino, Ciaran Hinds, Garry Marshall, and cameos by Kim Richards and Iake Eissinmann, who played the kids in the 70s. PG, 99 min.
