Watch Under the Mountain
- 1 hr 31 min
The mountain in this film's title is located in New Zealand and is, in fact, a volcano. There is indeed something under it, something very dark, deadly, and more than ready to destroy the Earth. Under the Mountain is a film about a quest to save the world, and as in true quest stories, the naming of the champion who will undertake it is as important as the quest and its resolution. In the case of Under the Mountain, there are two champions, a set of twins named Rachel and Theo Matheson (Sophie McBride and Tom Cameron). They find themselves in New Zealand, being cared for by relatives after the death of their mother. And they have a special power: Rachel and Theo, who were very close as young children, possess the ability to communicate silently with each other, using only their thoughts. A series of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions in the area of Auckland provides the background for this sci-fi thriller. And the quest begins with the twins' discovery of the Wilberforce house nearby, where dwell the strange men who turn out to be shape-shifting aliens (Oliver Driver et al.). The alien race beneath the façade of the Wilberforce brothers is bent upon destroying the galaxy. The only force who knows how to stop them is the mysterious Mr. Jones (Sam Neill), a good alien who recognizes that he must work with Theo and Rachel if the cosmos is to be saved.
