This movie is so underrated..

A Las Vegas cabbie enlists the help of a UFO expert to protect two siblings with paranormal powers from the clutches of an organization that wants to use the kids for their nefarious plans. Race to Witch Mountain is so underrated and to be honest as good as i remember from back in 2009, The Rock is amazing as he always is, Alexander Ludwig and AnnaSophia Robb have great chemistry together and i can buy them as brother and sister from space. The villains were also excellent both Ciaran Hinds and Siphon who is a mix of a Star Wars Stormtrooper meets a Power Ranger villain but without getting cheesy or anything and even tho it's not the best film that Disney has made it's far from being the worst. The actors have great chemistry together (i loved the scene where the kids protec Carla and The Rock from getting shot), the action is great and there's alot of good adventure in there that i loved at least. (A+)

The one where the Rock is not bald

While this kid's movie is more-or-less OK, it's so derivative that the only thing you'll remember it by after a few hours is that the Rock is not bald.

To make a better impact, it would have had to explore the story much more, like, why do the alien brother and sister have different "powers", if it's just a matter of "using the full capacity of the brain". Also, there was more fun to be had with their reaction to our world, but, again, without a deeper story about them and their world, we would not have been able to see why do they react that way and thus it would have not been that funny.

Also, Carla Gugino and The Rock don't work well together. It was a nice idea - pair him with a sophisticated woman, but, didn't play out.

So, it's a misfire, basically, though it's not really bad.

Aliens to go home

Race to Witch Mountain is a remake that relies much on Dwayne Johnson and Cara Gugino's charm. It is an exciting if bland Disney adventure with too many cardboard characterizations.

Johnson is Jack Bruno, a Las Vegas cab driver with a shady past. Some mob figures are after him and he knows how to drive fast.

When two kids suddenly appear in the back of his cab wanting Jack to drive them somewhere and offering him a lot of money to do it. The boy and girl are in fact aliens with special abilities, before long they are pursued by government agents and an intergalactic cyborg.

Jack teams up with Dr Friedman (Gugino) and has to get the two aliens to Witch Mountain and onto their stranded spacecraft while evading their pursuers.

The film is thrilling enough to keep the kids entertained but it is also slightly anodyne. Film director Garry Marshall makes a cameo appearance as an alien conspiracy theorist.
