Exploring the Mysterious Echoes of Time
18 December 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For me, Donovan's Echo was an inspirational reminder that the sovereignty of God is unlimited. The universe was not inevitable. It is neither an accident nor some self-existent entity of ethereal proportions exploding upon the empty stage of nebular nothingness. The universe is a work of creation and is therefore wholly subject to the will of the Creator. And unlike any documentary that may have attempted to encapsulate portions of these philosophical mysteries in a few condensed scenes featuring talking heads that move their lips in a rapid succession of lingual fireworks but who fail to say anything spiritually significant, this suspense-filled flick was enlightening and entertaining. By the way, God was never mentioned by name or even indirectly referenced in this movie although you might not know that after reading my review thus far (unless you have already seen Donovan's Echo). The topic that is dealt with has to do with how someone can be called upon to do something of the utmost importance that is beneficial to the long-term welfare of the planet perhaps by those Beings who are unseen and uncredited yet work diligently behind the scenes for the good of the many (and since they exist on a cosmic plane far above planetary mortals, they know more than any of us about everything there is to know). The chosen individual might be completely unaware that he or she has a supremely significant task to be completed during their mortal lifetime. At times when Doubt temporarily wins the tug-of-war with Faith, they might even think they are deluded or even crazy. Others who know them might share that opinion. But what matters in the end is only if the spiritually-guided person chooses to act or not to act (this going way beyond Shakespeare's "to be or not to be" since active participation can only be directly invoked by an act of will) and I choose not to mention anything more pertaining to what happens in this thriller so as to allow the ending to appear when scripted.
