Product Description

This Disney adventure is a remake of the 1975 film 'Escape from Witch Mountain', which was also made by Disney studios. Dwayne Johnson stars as Jack Bruno, a Las Vegas cab driver who finds himself caught up in a race to save the world when he discovers that Sara and Seth (AnnaSophia Robb and Alexander Ludwig), the brother and sister travelling in his cab, have supernatural powers for which they are being pursued by villainous mobster Henry Burke (Ciaran Hinds). Can the siblings unravel the secrets of the mysterious Witch Mountain in time to save the future of the planet?

From Amazon.co.uk

Loosely based on Alexander Key's novel Escape to Witch Mountain, Race to Witch Mountain is not so much a remake of the 1975 film Escape to Witch Mountain as an entirely new film based on some key plot points from the former film. When two innocent-looking teens appear in Jack Bruno's (Dwayne Johnson) cab and tell him "we must travel in that direction", Jack thinks it's a bit strange but shrugs it off and starts driving. Soon they're being followed and chased off the road, but is it Jack's past catching up with him or something much larger? Sara (AnnaSophia Robb) and Seth (Alexander Ludwig) reluctantly confess that they are aliens from another planet, but Jack refuses to accept their statement until Sara starts moving things with her mind and Seth slips through the body of the car and deflects the SUV that's pursuing them. Sara and Seth tell Jack that they must recover their crashed spaceship in order to save earth from being taken over by aliens, so Jack takes them to see Dr. Alex Friedman (Carla Gugino); a scientist who he met by chance and who believes in the possible existence of extra-terrestrials. While the four are initially wary of one another, Dr. Friedman provides some valuable contacts and they begin trusting one another out of sheer necessity. Soon they're battling secret government agencies, heavily armed personnel, and even a cybernetic Siphon (which looks a lot like a Cylon from Battlestar Galactica) in a desperate attempt to gain access to the heavily fortified Witch Mountain and the crashed spacecraft. Action-packed car chases dominate the film (a bit excessively, in this reviewer's opinion), but the acting and chemistry between actors is good as is the suspense and intrigue. Rated PG due to sequences of action and violence, frightening and dangerous situations, and some thematic elements. (Ages 9 and older) --Tami Horiuchi

5.0 out of 5 stars Disney never lets you down!! 9 Mar 2014
By Jo
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Another fantastic Disney film with a 'big named' actor (Dwayne Johnson) being completely out of his comfort zone from other films you'd normally see him in, like Vin Diesel in The Pacifier & Arnold Schwarzenegger in Kindergarten cop! This is a great updated version from the original Race to Witch Mountain, using all modern features, places & digital technology effects! I love it & it is a must have for all Disney fans, family's & children a like!!

By Mark Barry HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray
Be aware that the ‘US Disney’ BLU RAY of "Race To Witch Mountain" is REGION-A LOCKED - so it WILL NOT PLAY on most UK Blu Ray players unless they're chipped to play 'all' regions (which the vast majority aren't). Don’t confuse BLU RAY players that have multi-region capability on the 'DVD' front – that won’t help.

Buy the standard UK issue instead - it's cheap - and a looker on BLU RAY…

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good! 6 Aug 2014
Format:DVD
Having grown up with "Escape to witch Mountain" and "Return to witch mountain", well I say grew up with, really I mean used to watch them on TV constantly when they were shown. I actually caught this one in the cinema, I was a bit unsure about this one, mainly because they had left it so long to do a sequel and technology has changed drastically since the 70's which is when the last two I believe were produced? However I was really quite impressed, Dwayne Johnson proves that he really can act. It's very enjoyable with lots of action. Absolutely ideal for a family to sit down and watch. I would put this alongside "Paul" in terms of a good alien family film to watch.
