Trivia

"Earth to Echo" was produced and financed by Walt Disney Pictures. After chairman Alan Horn saw a final cut, it was put in turnaround and was purchased by Relativity Media. See more »

Goofs

When the group of kids is heading back to the construction site, the movie shortly plays a view of the Superstition Mountains. The Superstition Mountains are in the Phoenix area of Arizona, and definitely NOT in Nevada. This is a clear geological oversight. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Tuck: All right, mom, I'm leaving. Spending the night at Alex's house so we can play a new video game.
Theresa Simms: [busy talking] Have whatever you want, honey.
Tuck: You know what, I lied, actually. We're gonna ride our bikes out into the desert, at night, alone. Without supervision.
Theresa Simms: [still busy talking] Okay, see you then, sweetie.
Tuck: Also rob a bank. Go to Mexico. Maybe even start a new life.

Not a good movie
20 June 2014 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

(1) It just steals the E.T. plot line without much improvement. It even steals the concept of finger touch in its poster.

(2) The bicycle riding, and echo saved them from the truck (E.T. make the bike flying), all too familiar.

(3) Echo as a character is very poorly presented and developed.

(4) The kids are not as adorable as those in E.T.

(5) The female character is added awkwardly, almost as an afterthought.

(6) This is the super annoying one, the found footage technique. It is not a horror movie, can we not use this for a kid's movie? It is just uninspiring.
