RACE TO WITCH MOUNTAI; DVD REVIEWS.

BEEFCAKE star Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson plays a Las Vegas taxi driver called Jack - who is shocked to find two aliens called Sara (AnnaSophia Robb) and Seth (Alexander Ludwig) on his back seat. The former Mob driver is offered cash if he'll drive them to a remote cabin in the desert. If Race to Witch Mountain lacks a really consistent, suspensebuilding thread for adults, it will still bring back memories of what it was like to be young enough to think Back to the Future was the bees knees, too. A total 'reimagining' of the 1975 Donald Pleasance film based on the original Escape to Witch Mountain novel by Alexander Key (original siblings Kim Richards and Ike Eisenmann play a waitress and a sheriff here) there are thrills and spills galore with so much heavy duty action and automatic weaponry on view it's really worth a 12 certificate. Out to buy for pounds 15.99 (two disc package pounds 19.99 / Blu-ray pounds 24.99), the extras include deleted scenes and an exclusive director interview with the entertaining Andy Fickman.
