- Synopsis / Plot
- A UFO expert enlists the help of a cabbie to protect two siblings with paranormal powers from the clutches of an organization that wants to use the kids for their nefarious plans. For years, stories have circulated about a secret place in the middle of the Nevada desert, known for unexplained phenomena and strange sightings. It’s called Witch Mountain, and when a Las Vegas cab driver (Dwayne Johnson) finds two teens with supernatural powers in his cab, he suddenly finds himself in the middle of an adventure he can’t explain. They work together to discover that the only chance to save the world lies in unraveling the secrets of Witch Mountain, and the race begins.
- Critics' reviews
"An innocuous family entertainment (...) What Johnson does here is provide a credible tough guy action hero in a non-threatening mode. (...) Rating: ★★½ (out of four)."
Roger Ebert: Chicago Sun-Times
"Not Rocket Science. (...) Bears all the signs of having been composed by an inferior race of alien screenwriters from the Hackulon System. (...) Rating: ★ (out of four)."
Kyle Smith: New York Post
"It's entertaining with a crafty mixture of action, humor and drama."
Kirk Honeycutt: The Hollywood Reporter
"Modest and diverting, rough and bland, with some good (if not quite Bette Davis caliber) actors and so-so special effects."
A. O. Scott: The New York Times
