5 Classic Sunday family entertainment at it€s bestDaveFaz | 04/07/2008 | See all DaveFaz's reviews (182)Top 100 Reviewer Top 10 DVD Reviewer Top 100 PC Reviewer 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.
