Race to Witch Mountain 

 

Disney knows how to revive old franchises with style. Race to Witch Mountain star Dwayne Johnson (you know The Rock) as a taxi cab driver who gets an interesting fare. It updates the Witch Mountain series into a sci-fi action adventure experience that never takes itself too seriously. In fact the humor included was something I was not expecting. Race to Witch Mountain pokes fun at those nutjobs that believe in aliens. Of course the two teenagers are aliens with all kinds of amazing powers.

Visually speaking Race to Witch Mountain has some high points like when the space ship is flying. Expect to see a lot of explosions in this movie. A powerful armored assassin character comes after the kids. Thankfully there is no gore even when characters are killed off. Almost every character dressed appropriately throughout Race to Witch Mountain.

I enjoyed the music in Race to Witch Mountain. There are minor insults like the one I mentioned earlier about those that believe in aliens. These insults never escalate as it is taken in good humor. The kids powers are described as using more of their brains than we do.

Race to Witch Mountain has the most deleted scenes I have seen on a Blu-ray and/or DVD in a long time. Bloopers round out the DVD. The Blu-ray also contains a “Which Mountain?” This is a way to discover the hidden references to the original movie. The package Family Friendly Gaming received for review contains the Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital copy. This covers all the bases for families.

The menu screens of Race to Witch Mountain exhibit an intelligent design. I ran into no issues navigating around the various menu screens. The story has some nice twists and turns that I was not expecting. The various areas of humor really spiced up Race to Witch Mountain. I enjoyed this movie.

If I had to choose an appropriate age for Race to Witch Mountain I would say ten years and higher. Younger than that may try things like increasing their density to stop a moving SUV. I loved their quest to save their planet without invading ours. The concerns about these kids by the adults is admirable, and very welcome here at Family Friendly Gaming.
