Growing up, I watched both Escape to Witch Mountain and Return From Witch Mountain and remembered what a feel good movie it was. And although the effects back then was a little more like puppetry, still it captured my imagination! This movie however did not give me that same nostalgic feeling. Yeah it was funny in certain parts and had some entertainment value but frankly I don’t think adults will really enjoy it as much as the kids.
Speaking of kids…..the kids in this movie were more like geeky teenagers as compared to the younger adorable kids I watched growing up. But it was nice to see the two original Witch Mountain kids making a guest appearance as the Sheriff and a waitress. ( Ike Eisenmann & Kim Richards)
In my opinion Dwayne Johnson aka ‘The Rock’ is this movie’s only saving grace. Definitely not one you’d race to watch, but hey the kids just might!
