Critic Reviews for The Water Horse: Legend of the Deep
The only reasons to stay awake are the nature porn shots of the Highlands impossibly green hills and gray skies, and a nimble bit performance by a bulldog named Churchill
[A] disappointing mixed bag.
The Water Horse is an extremely charming little children's film of the type that we unfortunately have been seeing less and less often, with just enough weight to truly earn the title 'a film for the entire family.'
... we are able to sit back and enjoy the fun without ever losing sight of the sadness underneath.
The story nicely interweaves the legend of the Loch Ness monster with a tale of childhood angst, wartime drama and adventure.
Pleasingly evokes the days when Roddy McDowall frolicked with Flicka and Lassie, [but] it must be said that a CGI pet is not quite so easy to love as a flesh-and-blood performer, animal or human.
Audience Reviews for The Water Horse: Legend of the Deep
A real family that deals with friendships in a realistic fashion. The Water Horse isn't just a cute little creature. It starts off that way, with a number of comical scenes involving a baby monster. It soon turns a lot darker, where the monster is truly a wild creature and capable of great harm. The film holds up as we wonder if the friendship between Angus and monster will hold up. A lot of the film was rather slow, as it took a while to get anywhere. We are given some repetitive scenes, such as baths for the monster, and at least 2 chases involving the monster and dog. I also wasn't a fan of the movie being told as a story. It gave off a creepy vibe from Brian Cox, like he just sits in the pub all day rambling on. The CGI creature is very consistent, and the action scenes do have some dread to them. A nice watch for families, that doesn't patronize nor embarrass.
it was a wonderful film, with great story, effects, characters, and drama.
Great kids classic that I will remember for a long time! I saw it for 2 dollars at some cheap holiday special screening, but I would have paid full price for this wonderful film!
