5.0 out of 5 stars Quietly Brilliant Feb. 22 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is small-budget drama-suspense, so don't expect over-the-top special effects or even constant action. But the script is tight and acting properly nuanced. Also, the movie makes you think while drawing you into the story and the characters - exactly what a movie should do.

4.0 out of 5 stars THE ETERNAL RETURN July 20 2013
By The Movie Guy - Published on Amazon.com
Donovan (Danny Glover) is a slightly dyslexic nuclear physicist who has returned home after 30 years. He has dealt with a 30 year tragedy. Oh not the severe gut wrenching type of tragedy like being a Browns fan, but that of a personal loss of loved ones.

His return is clouded with mystery. Sgt. Finnley (Bruce Greenwood) leads a warm reception that soon turns strange as Donovan is consumed by 30 year old premonitions which he kept in a journal. He tries to sort things out, but unfortunately his interpretations lacks a bit of accuracy which leads to initial skepticism.

His premonitions center around an 11 year old girl (Natasha Calis) which causes alarm for Mom.

The film proceeds as a slow mystery being unraveled. It has many parts which make you think you are watching a "Lifetime" film. There is little action in the film and what action that does happen, is off screen. The film is about the reoccurring cycle of life. A likeable film for those who are into that sort of thing and were banging your head against the wall watching "Cloud Atlas."

Parental guide: No f-bombs, sex, or nudity. One BS.

5.0 out of 5 stars Donovan's Echo Sept. 14 2013
By amazon customer - Published on Amazon.com
A wonderful movie I just saw on Netflix (hint: Amazon, please make this available for Prime viewers!)...such a moving, engrossing, excellent movie about the timeless cycle of life, forgiveness, and the gift of intuitiveness. This is an understated gem. Of course the quiet gems don't make the same splash. Nonethless, this is an honest, heartfelt movie. Danny Glover is a marvelous actor and a scene stealer every step of the way! He just can't help it, his acting is that good!

Highly recommended if you are in the mood for a thoughtful movie with themes of ultimate forgiveness, which is rare nowadays.
3.0 out of 5 stars Good but Not Great Echo Sept. 15 2014
By Polo Grande - Published on Amazon.com
Earnest, well meaning and well acted story of a man caught up in past regrets and the trauma of losing his family 30 years earlier. With splendid performances by Danny Glover, Bruce Greenwood, and Natasha Calis the story manages to rise above some heavy handed screen writing and tugs at our emotions as we witness the single minded pursuit of answers to whether deja vu actually occurred. The "chicken little" scenario where Donovan (Glover) tries histrionically to warn whoever might be listening of impending doom is shopworn and not executed with much originality. As are the predictable reactions of Finn (Greenwood) to the ever-increasing warnings of impending danger voiced by Donovan.

However, the film manages to overcome its more cloying tendencies and makes Donovan's Echo a worthwhile, emotional experience. Just not a great one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Touching without being cloying May 18 2014
By RL - Published on Amazon.com
Although this lacks a certain edge, it is intelligent, and thoughtful and surprisingly touching. The premise is more well developed in many similar films, and although much of the finale is less of a shock than the writers hoped, it's still a worthwhile ride. Great performance from Danny Glover.
