Race to Witch Mountain Blu-ray Review...

This movie is about a cab driver that finds 2 kids hiding in his cab. They pay him to drive them somewhere and he soon discovers they are aliens and they are trying to get back to their space ship before the feds catch them. There are plenty of car chases and lots of action. The blu-ray quality is awesome.
This is a good movie that my family enjoyed watching!
