EARTH TO ECHO (PG) RELEASED: MONDAY

While not exactly living up to its ‘E.T. for the new generation tag’ – this still proves to be watchable family fare.

When an inseparable trio of boys, including former US X-Factor contestant Brian ‘Astro’ Bradley – recently seen starring alongside Liam Neeson in A Walk in the Tombstones – receive a bizarre series of encrypted messages, they embark on an sci-fi adventure with an extra terrestrial being that needs their help.

Its comparisons with the aforementioned Spielberg classic doesn’t do it any favours – particularly when it veers closely to stereotypical plot mechanics – but this does provide a reasonably entertaining diversion without offering anything groundbreaking.
