Mulberry Woods is a fictional town in Nevada, USA which is the residence of Tuck, Alex and Munch, the film's three main characters, and the location of the spaceship Echo uses to leave Earth. Earth to Echo was actually shot in Santa Clarita California, which can be seen in a billboard advertising dental care for a few seconds during the film. See more »
When the kids are driven through the desert by the government agents, there are many saguaros visible. This places them in Arizona, not Nevada where the story is set. See more »
All right, mom, I'm leaving. Spending the night at Alex's house so we can play a new video game.
Have whatever you want, honey.
You know what, I lied, actually. We're gonna ride our bikes out into the desert, at night, alone. Without supervision.

Okay, see you then, sweetie.
Also rob a bank. Go to Mexico. Maybe even start a new life.

Far too many times we have seen trailers that show us all of the big highlights of movies but these highlights make up about 5% of the films real premise. For me that is what earth to echo was like.
The trailer hooked me in but i didn't buy in to the marketing so much as to see this in the theater and in all honesty it doesn't have to be watched in the theater to be appreciated. This movie could have very well been made in a month and cost maybe 3 million.
It is true Echo has very little screen time but I didn't notice because as the movie went along I realized what I was watching was not about echo it was about the 3 boys friendship. The basic premise of the film is that a construction company is buying up this entire neighborhood and the boys are all moving. The boys decide to spend their last night together trying to figure out a mystery. I was really invested in all of the boys and laughed a lot too. Being a 23 year old watching what is naturally a child's movie I barely ever do. The shaky was annoying but it actually made sense for this movie and again kept me invested. Personally I think this film was an 8. Writing was spot on, main actors were great the shots were excellent, music was great and the CGI was tastefully used.
Watch this with your kid (my second graders loved it) or on a rainy day.
