Return from Witch Mountain Movie Review
Oddly, the biggest offense isn't the asinine plot -- which has Lee and Davis promptly kidnapping the alien/magical kids on their inexplicable and sudden return to earth -- and seizing control of a nuclear power plant in a pathetic extortion scheme. (How do they get control of the plant? They force little Tony to levitate the plant's only guard into the air! Oh no!)
Most of the movie consists of Tia hiding out with a gang of street kids while various car chases happen, all punctuated by a Shaft-infused funkadelic bass score that's so out of place you can still hear Walt Disney ripping his hair out.
It's insulting, offensive (poor, poor Jack Soo...), and simply stupid. If you enjoyed the first film, don't sully your memory of it by watching this hunk of junk.
