The Water Man Reviews

  • Apr 02, 2022

    I heartfelt if somewhat sappy film "The Water Man" doesn't break any new ground yet it has a good story line, good acting, is beautifully shot and ultimately is an affirming film of the strength of love overcoming adversity.

    Seriously? Not sure how this got such a good review. If you want to watch a movie that leads to nothing with stuff that happens for no reason watch this movie.

    Es una nueva película familiar en Netflix; la trama es decente y las actuaciones son pasables; David Oyelowo tiene mucho potencial como director de cine.

    3 out of 5 stars. The Water Man is a fair drama film about a young boy who is searching for the water man to help save his mother from a disease. The water man has a stone that can save anyone. It is a decent story that tries to be a bit fantasy and magical. But the direction lacks its tone its trying to be. The acting is decent. The film does lose its tone with what its trying to be. But entertaining.

    It felt like a dumber version of "A Monster Calls". The script makes no sense, really. And the ending was as disapointing as stupid.

    Though it's a little murky towards the end, The Water Man tackles a hard subject (death) from a young man's perspective. On a quest for hope and a cure for his mom, he searches out the truth of The Water Man legend.

    Watched with the family after a stunning review on the one show and was sorely disappointed. A waste of 90 minutes of my life. Unimpressed.

    The Water Man is a family adventure drama. A sharp directorial debut for Oyelowo, who has shown he can do both. It'll capture the imagination with its heart and soul throwing back to 80s flicks. There'll be watery eyes too.
