The movie for kids, but not only for kids!
Director Andy Fickman who has directed famous films like “She’s the Man” (2006), “The Game Plan” (2007) and in pre production the famous “Jonny Quest”, has given us a movie “Race to witch Mountain” starring Dwayne Johnson famously known as “The Rock”, Carla Gugino and the two kids Anna Sophia Robb and Alexander Ludwig.
As I stated above, this movie is mainly for kids, but not only for kids. The plot of the film is almost similar to our Bollywood film “Koi Mil Gaya”. In that film Hrithik was trying to save Jaadu from our Indian Police and wanted him to travel back to their planet safely. Hrithik’s aim was to take Jaadu to his space ship safe and sound, so that he can go back to his world. That was the climax. Here, this climax is being turn into a whole feature film.
In short, if I would tell you the story of the film that would be something like this. Two kids (Anna Sophia Robb and Alexander Ludwig), as aliens, come from outer space to earth by some space ship for their mission. Their mission was to find one object from one plant. They were actually sent to Earth by their parents because the government of their dying planet intends to attack and invade Earth so that their kind may live on there. They also explain that the object they obtained from the plant contains the results of an experiment which their parents had set up. The research from this experiment will save their planet without having to attack and invade Earth. However their planet's military prefer the idea of invading Earth and sent the Siphon assassin, a highly powerful soldier of theirs to stop them. Jack Bruno (Dwayne Johnson) was cab driver and these two kids hired his cab to reach out that plant. When jack Bruno realized who these kids were and what they upto, he decided to help them. They got that object from the plant but there space ship was under the custody of UFO’s. And also they were after that kids to kill them as the image in their mind was that the aliens are only bad and only wants one thing, to destroy earth. Earlier in the start of the film Jack Bruno met Dr. Miss Friedman (Carla Gugino) who was her passenger, whose job is to give speeches about legitimate scientific theories of UFOs and outer space. Jack Bruno and the two kids met her, explained her the situation, and by some her contacts she gained information about where exactly their spaceship is located. Now all of them were trying to put these kids safe and sound in the space ship so that they can return to their planet safely. One side the UFO’s and the US government were trying to kill these kids and on the other side that highly powerful soldier came from the kid’s planet military side was trying his best to kill them. Jack Bruno and Dr. Miss Freidman were trying their best to save the kids and locate them safely to their spacesip.
This is all the film is about. Good story, good performance, good way of dialogues spoken by the two kids as if like some alien is speaking, Ok CGI effects and a perfect movie for kids to watch. But as I already stated above, not only for kids.
All in all, a perfect movie to entertain and a perfect movie to enjoy weekend.
