Earth to Echo is a science fiction movie telling the coming of age tale of a small group of boy (ultimately joined by a girl) living in a desert suburb.
The history of this film speaks volumes. Here is what Wikipedia says about Echo:
- Earth to Echo is a 2014 American found footage science fiction adventure film directed by Dave Green, and produced by Robbie Brenner and Andrew Panay. The film was originally developed and produced by Walt Disney Pictures, who eventually sold the distribution rights to Relativity Media, which released the completed film in theaters on July 2, 2014.
I mean, you have a bunch of pre-teen kids on bikes. They live in a housing development where all the houses look the same. Through misadventure they come in contact with an alien that want to get home. A bad ole government agency is bent on capturing the alien for own nefarious reasons and I am not even talking about Earth to Echo!
If you are under 10 years old, you might just enjoy the film, but otherwise it is a hopeless waste of time. Out of ten? 5.
