DVD MOVIE REVIEW:
RACE TO WITCH MOUNTAIN
by Brian Savage


Race to Witch Mountain reunites Dwayne Johnson (The Game Plan, Get Smart) with director Andy Fickman (The Game Plan, She’s the Man) in a rousing sci-fi adventure that the entire family will enjoy. The film also stars AnnaSophia Robb (Bridge to Terabitha), Alexander Ludwig (The Seeker: The Dark is Rising ), Carla Gugino (Night at the Museum),Tom Everett Scott (That Thing You Do), Ciaran Hinds (The Tale of Despereaux, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I), Chris Marquette (Just Friends), Billy Brown (Lakeview Terrace), Cheech Marin  (Beverly Hills Chihuahua) and Garry Marshall (“The Simpsons”), with special appearances by Kim Richards and Ike Eisenmann, who played Tina and Tony, the siblings who hold the fate of the world in their hands, in the classic Disney films.

Race to Witch Mountain is a wonderful movie for the whole family.  This is a great remake…reimaging…sequel…or whatever you want to call it!  Even the kids in the movie look like the original actors from the 1970's.  Also for fans of the originals, there are several cameos, parallels and nods to the old films.  The story line is pretty much the same, aliens from another planet (kids) have to get something that was left/lost on this planet before the bad guys get it, that will save both worlds.  This film is action packed, funny, and a lot of fun.  My children liked it, and so will yours!

Disney really knows how to do their DVDs right!  This version has everything, Blu-Ray disc, NTSC disc and even a digital copy that will play with your Macintosh or on a Windows box.  They have you covered!  I wish all studios gave you this much value for your dollar.  I highly recommend that you go out and buy this for your family today and have a great time!
