From now on, we can say that every generation has its E.T. Nice flick, not enough for me to say that one day, every generation will have its Earth to Echo. Fun and sweet and entertaining. Not much else. And cinema is so much more. Even for kids.
The POV is amusing in the beginning, since it gives you the feeling that these really are kids documenting their little adventure, but after awhile the motion sickness kicks in. Nothing new, good for kids maybe. Summarising, Spielberg made it better a few years ago
