Time Out says

3 out of 5 stars
The 1975 alien-kids-on-the-run original, Escape to Witch Mountain, lives on in the brains of Gen Xers; call it paranoia cinema with training wheels. This slicked-up reboot owes more to the wry action heroics of lantern-jawed Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and several phony chase sequences than to any pervasive conspiracy. (The Disney theme-park ride is inevitable.) Still, these blond space children (Ludwig and Bridge to Terabithia’s Robb) are persuasively otherworldly—and the movie makes room for sympathetic cameos from Kim Richards and Ike Eisenmann of the first go-round.
