Two children discover an egg on a beach in Scotland which eventually hatches into a "waterhorse". Later, that waterhorse grows up to be the Loch Ness monster.
The Water Horse is a fine family film. It takes a classic tale and infuses it with extra imagination, sly humor, heart, and inventive special effects.
[A] disappointing mixed bag.
What makes The Water Horse different is its sophisticated, wraparound story, which initially seems at odds with a computer-generated sea-beast.
... we are able to sit back and enjoy the fun without ever losing sight of the sadness underneath.
A rich, mostly tender fairy tale.
The film is a triumph of empathy.
The story nicely interweaves the legend of the Loch Ness monster with a tale of childhood angst, wartime drama and adventure.
A tepid, CGI-enhanced family movie that should delight 6-year-olds with a lap full of popcorn.
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.'
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.
