DVD Review: Earth to Echo

Earth to Echo is an epic adventure, a tale of friendship and fun, and a mystery to boot.  Think Goonies or Stand By Me or even E.T. - for a new generation.

The film follows the exciting, exhilarating journey of three kids who take matters in to their own hands in a modern, fast-cut, fast-moving story.  Available to rent or own on DVD, Blu-ray and Digital Download from today, it is the perfect Christmas present for the whole family.

After a mysterious construction project begins digging in their street, best friends Tuck, Munch and Alex start receiving strange, encoded messages on their mobile phones.  Filming themselves and uploading evidence as they go the three embark on a secret adventure to crack the code and follow it to its source.  But taking matters into their own hands gets the trio in way over their heads when they discover a mysterious being from another world who desperately needs their help.  The epic journey that follows will change all of their lives forever.

Introducing Teo Halm, Astro, Reese Hartwig and Ella Wahlestedt who provide brilliant performances as the intrepid children, Earth to Echo is a not to be missed movie the whole family will enjoy.

I'm afraid it was too fast cut for me as, since my Labyrinthitis started I can't cope with fast camerawork, which is rather annoying!  But Steve really enjoyed the film and thought it would be great for children aged 9/10+ (it has a PG certificate).

Here's the trailer:
