Seems to have more potential than payoff and lacks heart.

I saw this movie at 10 years old when it was first released. It was the first- and only to date- movie that I walked out on. The acting was subpar and the plot was boring. Coupling those two together make for quite possibily the most uninteresting movie on the face of the planet. I tried watching it again recently to see if my opinion had change. Same reaction.

Enjoyable family fare with excellent FX.

The effects are pretty good in this movie, but it does twist history and geography for its own purpose in creating a fair family movie. Given its filmed in New Zealand some people going to Loch Ness for the first time after this film maybe disappointed at how bland its beauty actually is.

The Water Horse counts with mesmerizing special effects and with a charismatic protagonist, that elevates the interest of this movie's narrative at all levels.

Young Scottish lad discovers a baby Nessie during WW2. The plot beats are exactly what you'd expect, but the performances are good and the effects were great for the time.

Average, about the most honest thing you could say about this film, just another in a long list of, "Boy and his blank," stories. Whenever a lonely boy needs a friend, the cinema Gods will bestow upon him a special friend. Be it a dog, dragon, whale, or in this case the Loch Ness Monster.
Moving from plot point to plot point, the film just is. It goes through the motions of your typical "Boy and his....," story, but never tries anything new or subversive. Which, in a genre this played out, really needs to have happen or else, you leave feeling like I did. Fine that you saw it, but knowing that had I not seen it, I wouldn't have lost anything. Not a good way to stand out from the crowd, or to stand out at all actually.

I wanted to love this movie but it's just too long and the story was pretty standard.

Awesome movie. When I was younger I loved this movie. The animation on the loch Ness monster is awesome, it looks like Jurassic parks dinosaurs, it's that good. I like that the boy heroes up with the water house. When the monster was in the egg then it grew up and got bigger. I love this movie.

Adopting a classic tales such a Loch Ness monster and reimagine it with E.T-ian style and Free Willy's ending, The Water Horse is imaginative, fun and heartwarming. It's not sinking on traditional style of it genre, live up the magical story.
