Starring: Dwayne Johnson, AnnaSophia Rob, Alexander Ludwig, Ciaran Hinds, Carla Gugino, Tom Woodruff Jr.
A UFO crashes on the western coast of the United States and the government is desperately looking for any clues of the aliens within it. The two aliens, Sara (Rob) and Seth (Ludwig) in reality look like normal human children and posses great power. Jack Bruno (Johnson) is a taxi driver in Las Vegas and Sara and Seth hire him to get to an isolated place in the middle of the desert. The children explain to him that their planet is apparently getting destroyed due to environmental degradation and that their government wants to invade Earth to make it their new home. However, the children's parents conducted an experiment on Earth to prove that an invasion on Earth is not necessary and their own planet can be habitable once more. The children have come to Earth in order to obtain the results of the experiment since their parents couldn't come and must get back to their own planet on time if the invasion is to be avoided. However, it is not all that easy for them since an alien warrior known as Siphon (Woodruff Jr.) intends to kill them and make sure that Sara and Seth don't go back home. The movie starts on an interesting plot but doesn't manage to contain that interest till the end., where it gets boring and slow. The lack of highly-destructive action sequences and average performances are partly to blame. Nice movie but could have been much better. A remake of the 1975 movie, Escape to Witch Mountain.
Thumbs up: Decent plot, good start
Thumbs down: Bad ending, average acting
