Courageous Ethical Behavior Is Its Own Reward!
I am happy that many such films have been made in our Bollywood and also in Hollywood that aliens are also good in nature. These people are trying their best to rub out the so called image of alien’s factor in this world that they are cruel, demons, kills people and etc. An heartfully thankful to all these such people.
As per the film, Race to Witch Mountain proves that Hollywood can make an exciting and intelligent film that the whole family can enjoy! You can have plenty of action without nauseating violence! It was also a delight to see a powerful science fiction story suitable for even small children.
I like the underlying premise that an alien race, with tremendous technological and mental powers, can act in an ethical and selfless fashion. It's also interesting that there can be more than two sides to a story, in this case 4 sides - two factions of aliens (a boy and a girl as a good aliens and on the other side one bad alien) and two factions of humans (Dwayne Johnson & Carla Gugino as good human beings and on the other side the bad government) all with different agendas!
This is also a blatantly anti-military intelligence and anti-secret government story. Two opposing philosophies are made crystal clear: Might makes right, on one hand; and courageous ethical behavior is its own reward, on the other!
I shudder to think what would happen to an extraterrestrial alien if they were ever captured by our government or any other major power! As silly as this may sound to some people, I really hope an International treaty is ratified and Federal laws are passed giving sentient extraterrestrials legal standing! Otherwise, why would they ever want to risk exposing themselves in this selfish, and violent, world of ours? As one of the arrogant bad guys in Race to Witch Mountain said, "They have no passport; they don't exist, so I can do what I want with them!" May that someday not be true!
