Earth to Echo

No one will ever believe our story.


Earth to Echo
Unashamedly borrowing a great deal from E.T., this is about three young boys who start receiving weird messages on their cellphones the night before their families all move out of the neighbourhood. They decide to investigate, with the help of a good-looking older girl, and eventually discover the source of the messages. However, as they try to do the right thing, they need to keep dodging the authorities who also want what they've found.

110 minutes.

C. Fuchs quote iconhrow in the blaring lack of story originality, underused magic and charm, and the barf-inducing shaky-cam, and Earth to Echo can't help but come off as an unfortunate missed opportunity.

Tomatometer quote iconEarth to Echo doesn't do itself any favors by beggaring comparison to E.T., but for younger viewers, it should prove a reasonably entertaining diversion.
