Movie Info

In post-Civil War Texas, two neighboring families are grieving tragic losses while they struggle to survive in this rural drama. The cattle-ranching McCluskeys have lost both a son and their entire herd to the war. The Rileys, mourning the loss of wife and mother Mary to illness, eke out a living trapping animals and selling their pelts. When Seamus Riley's brother-in-law Wade (James Badge Dale, The Lone Ranger, Iron Man 3) returns from fighting for the Confederacy, he soon discovers that Randolph McCluskey (William Forsythe, The Rock, Once Upon a Time in America) and family have been stealing animals from his family's traps. He decides it is intolerable and takes matters into his own hands, sparking yet another tragic and senseless war.(C) Arc Entertainment

Critic Reviews for Echoes of War

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (5)

[A] sluggish post-Civil War drama directed and co-written by Kane Senes that wears its shopworn ideas too heavily on its sleeve.

August 14, 2015 | Full Review…

A giant bore that presents viewers with the most familiar plot devices imaginable but fails to present them in a way that makes them worth sitting through once again.

May 15, 2015 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

The somber period western "Echoes of War" retraces some well-traveled moral ground but is invigorated by a cast that includes James Badge Dale, Ethan Embry and William Forsythe.

May 14, 2015 | Full Review…

A gloomy, somewhat underwritten story of two families just after the Civil War, an exploration of the kind of disruption that lingers after fighting on the battlefield is over.

May 14, 2015 | Full Review…

There's something stale about Kane Senes's tepid historical drama Echoes of War, which utilizes the genre's symbols without delivering on its potential for moral or narrative satisfaction.

May 12, 2015 | Full Review…

This tale of the futility of revenge works well enough on its own modest terms.
