Friendship is the greatest adventure of all!
Earth To Echo is a family friendly film that has made it’s way to theaters. I had the chance to see a screening of the movie this week with my family and wanted to share our take on Earth To Echo. It’s about a group of inseparable boys Tuck, Munch and Alex. The boys are facing their time together coming to an end. Their neighborhood is being destroyed by a highway construction project that is forcing their families to move away. But just two days before they must part ways, the boys find a cryptic signal has infected their phones. The movie is induced with footage of video cameras attached to bikes, glasses, making for videography that is very fast paced and “bumpy”. Think a Blair Witch, style movie recording. I had to adjust to watching this movie at first, it made me a little uncomfortable trying to keep up with the fast paced movements. My boys weren’t bothered at all by the fast moving footage and thought it made the movie more of an adventure. Almost like we where right there along for the ride. In hindsight that is a great way to view the film.
The movie follows the boys on an adventure to figure out where that cryptic signal came from. They set off by lying to their parents for the chance to find the source of the message. The adventure takes them on a journey to discover something beyond their wildest imaginations: hiding in the darkness is a mysterious being, stranded on Earth, and wanted by the government. This launches the boys on an epic journey full of danger and wonder, one that will test the limits of their friendship and change all of their lives forever.
Rating: PG Cast: Teo Halm, Brian “Astro” Bradley, Reese Hartwig and Ella Linnea Wahlestedt
