    According to The Direct, ‘Echo‘ is roaring with rave and positive reviews from the critics, only from the first two episodes of the series. Podcaster Tyrell Charles was amused by the action sequences and praised the series for focusing more on the background story of Maya Lopez. Charles reviewed it saying, “I’ve seen 3 eps of Echo. A grounded, character-driven story with hints of bigger things to come. The strong focus on Maya’s indigenous heritage & personal history intrigues me; and while some quiet moments slow the pacing; when the action scenes come, they are indeed brutal.”

    Emily Murray from Total Film enjoyed the violent fight scenes and the sound design saying that she would love to watch it again and again. Tom Percival from The Digital Fix assured that the ‘Daredevil‘ fans are in for a treat but he did not agree with all the creative moves used in the first two episodes.
