“Echo Rhyme” is inspired by certain Bible stories and features one man’s journey and search for the truth. Paul, whose father calls him “Frank,” is raised by a father who operates in the criminal underworld. Frank does a “hit” job on a man he later learns something about that shocks him, and a definite irony involves the man who died. The situation is a sacrifice of sorts.
The plot has a lot of twists and turns. “Echo Rhyme” is a gripping story with solid acting, and it makes a real point as far as the nobility of sacrifice and forgiveness. Due to some graphic scenes featuring a heart surgery, as well as some violence, we are awarding this film our “Faith-Based” Seal, meaning it has a faith message but some objectionable material. In this case, what’s objectionable is the violence. However, the film’s message is worth telling: A certain man becomes a missionary and is completely changed, and this film captures the story very well.
