Critic Reviews for Magic in the Water
A singularly unconvincing parable, ultimately hamstrung by awkward, choppy storytelling.
On the minus side are a heavy-handed dose of political correctness and a needless flight into dubious whimsy in an already fanciful situation.
If Magic in the Water had been written smarter, both children and adults would have enjoyed it more.
Orky is very concerned with the environment and can repair relationships between parents and children. But Orky cannot save this movie.
Orky isn't shown until near the end, and then only briefly. At first, I thought this was an attempt to build suspense, but after a while, I began to suspect that the high cost of sea-monster footage was the real explanation.
Audience Reviews for Magic in the Water
Very good made-for-tv film from the mid-90s. I've always been fascinated by the Loch Ness Monster, and this reminded me of that, with a great family movie tied into it.
