Earth to Echo

This movie made two out of the three of us so nauseated because of the way it was fimed. I had to keep my eyes closed through about the last half and go home and take medication and go to bed. The other party had to leave the theater and felt sick the rest of the night. All the bouncing around of looking through the lens of a video camera was TERRIBLE!

Stand By Me meets E.T.

By perrytessel

DECENT family fluff film. Some applause during credit roll but pretty one dimensional and predictable, especially IF you've seen E.T. 13 year old didn't care for it; 8 year old liked it. I thought it was SLIGHTLY endearing AT BEST.

Heartwarming and funny

The young actors were very good. They were able to hook me into caring for the actors. The storyline was not childish. It had a realistic situation that brought these 4 kids and Echo together for years to come. I would recommend this film to ages 5 to 105.

Goonies + ET + Close Encounters = Heartwarming Tween Movie

I remember watching the Goonies as a kid and being scared out of my pants because I wasn't sure what was going to come next. Mix that with the ET movie where you're rooting for the bad government guys to get away from the veggie space alien that loves Reeses Pieces and throw in some Close Encounters of the Third Kind and you've got a smooshy kind of new tween comedy/scifi/drama that keeps you on your toes while laughing the night away. I recommend this for those with a healthy sense of humor and a great sense of adventure (ever want to get away from your parents for a while when you were 12?). I only gave it a 4 out of 5 because the storyline was a little slow for the age range that they expected, but otherwise it's goodhearted fun with a message.

Good story and acting

If you combined E.T. and Stand By Me, you get pretty much the idea behind Earth to Echo. The story centers around three friends who are foster kids who are forced to move because, supposedly, they are building a freeway where they are now living. However, nothing could be further than the truth. They find this out when they are called by an alien life (robot in this case) through their cell phones. They eventually help Echo, as the robot eventually gets known as, to help find parts for his transport. I'm not going to give away too much of the plot. Suffice to say this was very well done and is worth a look. If you live in Santa Clarita, you will recognize the scenery as they filmed a good portion in Saugus and Palmdale areas. Would I see this movie again? Yes.
