Overview

The Water Horse: Legend of the Deep

A lonely young boy vows to protect the rapidly growing hatchling that emerges from a mysterious egg found on the shores of a Scottish loch in My Dog Skip and Tuck Everlasting director Jay Russell's screen adaptation of writer Dick King-Smith's popular children's novel. Angus MacMorrow (Alex Etel) has made a most unusual discovery, and he's about to find out just how one innocent boy's greatest fantasy can also be a frightened adult population's greatest threat. Unable to identify the egg that he found while walking the sandy shores, Angus is even more perplexed about the discovery and the creature that emerges resembles what comes to be known as a Water Horse, which Angus names Crusoe. As the bizarre new life form begins to grow at an alarming rate, it soon becomes obvious that Angus will not be able to keep it a secret for very long, and the young boy will have to do some seriously quick thinking if he is to keep his new friend safe.

The movie was entertaining. I didn't make the connection from the title that it would be a tale about the Lochness monster. I won't comment on whether or not I believe in the Lochness monster, but I thought the story line was believable. I bought it as a movie to watch with my grandkids and they loved it, so did my mother. It is a family movie that could be watched by people of all ages. I wasn't familiar with any of the actors, but I still enjoyed the movie. It was worth buying and watching and will probably be watched over and over.

This is a really good family film. Reminds me a little bit of Free Willy, E.T., and a few other movies rolled up into one. When a young boy finds an egg and raises what hatches from within the egg, all kinds of adventures soon follow, leading to the legend of the Loch Ness monster.

This film was a surprise to me because I expected it to be more for kids. It was more than a kids film and actually made me cry. It was heartwarming, sweet and fun. The actors are believable and raise the film up.

Finding out what you're afraid of and what you can do to overcome this, can sometimes lead to an exciting adventue. Believing in yourself and having hope for the future can sometimes bring out the best in you. Having responsibility for something other than yourself also shows you that you are tougher than you think. This movie is a great example of someone who broadened his world by thinking about something other than himself and the fun it brought him; and the responsibility to keep it safe.

This movie was excellent. The acting was amazing (Alex Etel). The scenery was good and had a wonderful story. I was going to see it in theatres, but never had time, so I rented it. It was surprisingly amazing. I can't believe that I cried 5 times. I am definitely going to buy it. I recommend it to people of all ages. You can watch it over and over again.

My son, who has Down Syndrome, rarely enjoys movies that aren't animated. But he loves this movie and asks that we watch it constantly. He asks questions thru'out. He never does that during animated movies so even tho' that gets just a bit old, I adore that he does this. Probably the longest conversations we have! I like the movie too mainly because the actors are top-notch and the water horse looks realistic.
