Tuck (Teo Halm) , Alex (Teo Halm) and Munch (Reese Hartwig) aren't happy. It's bad enough that they've got to move out of their neighbourhood to make way for an interstate highway but they get bizarre messages on their mobile phones. D-day approaches and the lads cycle out into the Nevada Desert to trace the source of the mysterious messages and up pops Echo, a robot alien and he's not too happy. Not quite finished. We need a girl in the group. Bring on board rebellious Emma (Ella Wahlestedt) and the Gang will help Echo while avoiding nasty government officials.
ET rises again? Not quite, but it passes as a children's summer sci-fi adventure with the ever present depressing cellphone locked into every minute of every day.
