Who doesn't love a movie with a cute robot in it? Awwwweeee...I do...lol. I couldn't wait to see Echo. The trailer was decent and the Echo character seemed too cute for words. I'm a sucker for cuteness, please forgive me...lol. Critics are comparing this film to E.T., but I just don't see the connection. This movie reminded me more of Wall-E (a film I absolutely adored), than E.T, but I was hoping it would be as good as either one.
I enjoyed it. I was hoping to love it, but I did enjoy it. This movie had a nice group of characters who are best friends leading the movie, Munch, Tuck, and Alex. I appreciated how the film touched on each characters personal story, but kept the focus on their friendship. They are a super cute group of friends who are comically entertaining. You will definitely fall in love with each of them, my favorite being Munch.
The filming also added to the movie's entertainment. It felt as if we were looking at lost footage, which really worked well for this movie, and made it more interesting. I enjoyed the robot Echo, but I felt like there wasn't enough of him. This is where the film was a little disappointing. The story was great, but I needed more Echo. This would be the only thing I say was lacking in the movie.
This movie is super entertaining, and will definitely appeal to the young ones. Some adults may also find it fun to watch also. There are some things lacking, but overall, a very cute movie.
