Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment will release on Blu-ray director Dave Green's Earth to Echo (2014), starring Teo Halm, Astro, Reese Hartwig, and Ella Wahlestedt. The release will be available for purchase on October 21.
Synopsis: In Relativity's PG summer family adventure movie, Tuck, Munch and Alex are a trio of inseparable friends whose lives are about to change. Their neighborhood is being destroyed by a highway construction project that is forcing their families to move away. But just two days before they must part ways, the boys begin receiving a strange series of signals on their phones. Convinced something bigger is going on, they team up with another school friend, Emma, and set out to look for the source of their phone signals. What they discover is something beyond their wildest imaginations: a small alien who has become stranded on Earth. In need of their help, the four friends come together to protect the alien and help him find his way home. This journey, full of wonder and adventure, is their story, and their secret.
We loved Super 8. Just going by the trailer for this, I wouldn't expect it and Super 8 to be much alike. It never pays to have preconcieved expectations - almost always biases the experience for the worst.
Saw it, and I really didn't enjoy it. The kid's acting ranged from average to just plain awful and the shaky cam, found footage approach served nothing to the film at all. I was really hoping it would be a good, fun film, but it just didn't turn out well. Pass for me.
This was an okay film. I saw it in the theater. I enjoyed for what it was but I left feeling I wanted a little more. Super 8 is a much better film and the two films are nowhere near the same. If you are interested in this, I say rent first.
I was deeply disappointed by this one. Being a "YouTube" style movie did nothing for it other than to cheapen it. But since it was already a slightly updated rip-off of about 4 better films, perhaps the film-maker's thought they could hide this fact with shaky-cam. It didn't work.
I saw it- thought the same as thedarkangel did. It could have been much better- it clearly wasn't original- and that would have been challenging, so I can forgive that. But even more eye candy would've been enough to keep my interest.
