Earth to Echo is a Science Fiction/ action movie, that takes place in a suburban neighborhood. Tuck, Munch and Alex are a trio of inseparable friends who are being forced to move away from one another, due to the construction of a freeway over their neighborhood. They Suddenly receive a weird image on their smartphones the day before they must move, they find out it is a map and follow it. (I must stop here and add that I am telling you the bare minimum of the plot, there are some quite funny scenes so it is not all serious). The map leads them to a desert where they find a piece of junk… Soon they find out that when Alex says beep, it beeps; they find a small robot/alien/owl. Then they get more maps and things and start asking Echo ( That’s what they named it)questions, one beep for yes and two beeps for no. Eventually they go back to the maps and end adding the most popular girl in the school to the spaceship building gang. I am going stop here because of spoilers. This movie has a running theme of loyalty and Friendship especially when dealing with Alex and Echo’s relationship. I must say this movie was a tear jerk-er for me (twice) but, it wrapped it up in a way that made sense and made me happy. This movie was one of those “coming-of-age” movies that transformed kids over night. It really had a unique feel due to the way it was filmed and the graphics at the end were amazing. I recommend this movie to anyone, and my last note on Echo is: I WANT THAT RINGTONE.
Four and a 2/3 stars: (I really love this movie)
