EARTH TO ECHO Review and Competition

My boys were literally sat on the edge of their seats watching this film.  At first I thought perhaps they were a little nervous but it was because they were completely gripped!  It’s a PG and some of the camera angles can make you feel a bit jumpy, but it’s a great film about friendship and working together so the boys were content to watch it to the end.


Plus Echo is a big highlight of course, both my boys wanted to find their own mysterious being after watching the film.  Although eldest was adamant he did not want to sneak around in the dark on a big adventure to do it, he wants to find him whole in our house instead!  He is quite happy to see other people do the hard work, breaking into a house, causing chaos in a pawn shop and being spooked in a barn!

You can have a look at the trailer below to whet your appetite before the DVD/Blu-Ray release.



I like the messages behind the film; it’s like a modern day ET but with lots of emphasis on smart phones and no flying bikes!  Although it has some fantastic special effects of its own, like trucks dismantling and reconstructing in lots of little pieces… I do not want to give away much more!  Just enough to say my two were completely hooked and asked to watch the film the very next day.

It is released on the 17th of November so it would make a fabulous stocking filler for Christmas, assuming you can hang on that long!  I think its perfect for a family film night as it has wide appeal.  My two are five and seven but it would suit children much older too, because its so action packed as the trio try and evade the “construction workers” (government officials!) and save the charming little alien.

You can pre-order the film here for £10.

If you would like to win one of three copies on DVD then kindly fill out the form below by the 25th of November.
