Race to Witch Mountain (2009, USA) C-98m. SCOPE ** D: Andy Fickman. Starring Dwayne Johnson, AnnaSophia Robb, Alexander Ludwig, Carla Gugino, Ciarán Hinds, Tom Everett Scott, Cheech Marin. Remake of Disney's ESCAPE TO WITCH MOUNTAIN (1975) about two extra-terrestrial children, who need to find a device and bring it to their spaceship and enlist the help of Las Vegas taxi driver Johnson. Soon they are hunted by the secret service. Second-rate script cannot fully be camouflaged by special effects and fast pace. Good fun for kids (although the TERMINATOR-like cyborg belongs into a horror movie).
