What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Theresa Smith Space race more fun than you may think.
Annette Bayne A film trying too hard to be too many things.
Wade Major Kids with no connection to the original probably won’t care, but adults looking to recapture the magic of their childhood will find this patched-up pastiche sorely lacking and painfully dull, guaranteeing Disney a short but short-lived box office burst primarily from pre-tweeners and their reluctant parents.
|Chicago Sunday Times|
Roger Ebert Young audiences will like the kids in the movie.
Neil Karassik In fairness, cynicism shouldn’t deter parents from enjoying an adequate movie matinee with their children. Just be warned that the film contains images that may upset unadventurous young ones, with chaotic car crashes, goofy gunplay and The Rock punching a lot of G-men square in the face.
C. Fuchs While it's not awful, the offering is so pedestrian, not to mention lacking flair and finesse, that there's no real need to race out to see it.
Tomatometer Despite the best efforts of a talented cast, Race to Witch Mountain is a tepid reboot that lacks the magic of the original.
