Action Movie Fanatix Review: Earth to Echo

The movie starts with three friends telling their story (via YouTube videos) of being forced to move out of their homes because of a new highway being built through their neighborhood. It’s a surprisingly emotional few minutes. These are kids who essentially only have each other for friends and they’re worried about all being moved to different schools and never making new friends. I moved a few times growing up and I can remember feeling the EXACT same way. The movie kind of won me over right there.

The movie starts with John Williams iconic theme song. I had forgotten just how incredible this song was. It’s right up there with the Star Wars theme, which was also written by John Williams. Both themes get the viewer into the right mood for this movie from the very first seconds they’re played.
