The Academy Award winning producer and special effects team behind The Lord Of The Rings join with Revolution Studios to bring this magical motion picture to the screen.

The story of The Water Horse begins when a young boy named Angus MacMorrow takes home a mysterious object he finds on the beach. He soon realizes that it is a magical egg, and finds himself raising an amazing creature: a mythical "water horse". As he and his friend, whom he names Crusoe, form a bond of friendship, Angus begins a journey of discovery, protecting a secret that gives birth to a legend.

Based on the novel Babe by Dick King-Smith, The Water Horse is set in Scotland during World War II, and tell the story of a young boy, Angus (Alex Etel), who discovers an egg near Loch Ness. The egg hatches in to what looks like a baby dinosaur, and turns out to be a mythical Water Horse.
Sunday family entertainment at it's best. You really can't go wrong with this one. It reminds you of a fifties adventure film like Lassie. Very predictable story, but hey, it's for kids, and despite a relatively slow pace, the film does manage to avoid adults looking at their watches all the time. I guarantee you this will be on the BBC for years to come. It's just their type of family film.

 An all round family film.

What a lovely film for one and all! No rudeness or swearing, a really good family film. My boys enjoyed it from the start and have rekindled the next generation of 'Is there really a Loch Ness Monster'! I was expecting to see an unreal like 'Nessy' but was impressed with the quality of the 'beast'. As said in a previous review it will be one of those Bank Holiday films we will get to see for many years along with the Railway Children!

 Good stuff

Watched this on Sunday afternoon and my two sons loved it. It almost follows the Princess Bride with the way the story is told. It ticks all th boxes for good family entertainment and the extras are not bad either. I have knocked a point off for the non-use of Scottish actors and the fact that the majority of the filming is in New Zealand.

 Good"Old Fashioned"Entertainment!!!!!!

The Water Horse is good old Fashioned entertainment,The kind thats almost never made any more"Why?"Because kids movies try to be all Hip nowadays with in-jokes about Adult themes.The Water horse is straight up wholesome old fashioned fun"& is all the better for it,its got Sunday afternoon film and Christmas eve Written all over it.The Creature desighns also very nice,you actually care about the creature and because of this you root for him all the more at the conclusion.The Water horse is no Classic"but its a nice Warm familey Diversion.

 FANTASTIC FILM BOUGHT FOR MY DAUGHTER (AGE 3)

Totally captivating, effects are stunning, heart warming story, a real 'christmas day' sort of film. Would recommed to everyone. I'd advise young children to watch first time with an adult due to mild scary parts.
