Echo Rhyme


Based on true biblical events.

Dove Review

“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.
