Utter tripe. The script is incredibly lazy and cliché-ridden - the denoument is lifted out of "Free Willy"; the characters are one-dimensional; the monster is crap CGI (when will directors realise that CGI does NOT look 'realistic'? - it LOOKS like CGI). And of course no film set in Scotland would be complete without a soundtrack comprising faux-Celtic muzak - Lord help us! What a complete waste of 100 odd minutes of my life. If this film was truly faithful to the novel by Dick King-Smith then I can only say that I don't think much of the novel either... And the DVD disc has a 'Featurette' section comprising over 75 minutes! Why on Earth would you need 75 minutes to further explain some of the laziest writing ever? N.B. Most of the footage of the Scottish scenery - including the 'Loch' - was actually shot in New Zealand. Unfortunately, the real Loch Ness, in contrast to this movie version, is not open directly to the sea, being a freshwater Loch; and the River Ness which connects the Loch to the sea is not navigable by submarines, so the whole plot is a nonsense. Furthermore, the "Surgeon's Photograph" of Nessie, which plays a role in the film's narrative, was published in 1934, not during the Second World War. I hate movies that rely on the ignorance of their viewers in order to work. But heck, what do I know? Critics and cinema-goers loved it, apparently.

A pleasant tale of a boy and his ... water horse for want of a better name. Fantasy adventure with good acting from Alex Etal.

I thought that Alex Etel did a very good job in this movie. The movie itself wasn't great but based on the performance of Alex I gave it an 8. Alex is a very cute and very talented young actor and the movie is worth checking out to see him. Otherwise it's not really a great movie. But it is pretty good and worth seeing at least once.

The boy character in the lead does a very good job. His looks are very sensitive and genuine, he has a very captivating stage presence. A boy in whose looks I could drown.

The story is a typical family-fantasy adventure, and as that it pretty much succeeds... as a serious movie it would fail.
