If it wasn’t obvious from the previews “Earth To Echo” is essentially a retelling of “ET”. But I’m pretty sure it won’t be remembered as one of the classics.
This is definitely a kids movie. There’s not much for adults to cling to. The story centers around the close friendship of three boys who are each outsiders at school. As the movie starts we learn that a freeway is being built through their neighborhood and everyone is relocating. Two of the boy’s families are moving away, ending their friendship.
Echo, the alien, is really just a prop to explore the boy’s friendship as they have one last adventure together. Any kid who feels like an outsider, or misunderstood, will have something to relate to in this movie.
