beautiful. May 7, 2010
Sweetest movie ever!Great for people of any age!, there are a couple of moments a bit scary for very young children but the movie is so sweet, my best friend has a 3 yr old daughter and will be buying this movie for her daughter. good condition, fast transaction.
Crusoe Apr 10, 2010
A fantasy-drama released in 2007, The Water Horse is about the legendary Loch Ness monster and a boy who hatched an egg bearing a baby creature of that ilk. Set in a Scottish manor house on the edge of the Loch, the scenery is spectacular, both land and underwater. This is a delightful family film, with a more serious underlying theme about the hardships of war, WWII, in this case. With the possible exception of Emily Watson, American audiences are likely to be unfamiliar with most of the cast. Alex Etel as Angus, the lad who befriends the water horse, and Ben Chaplin as the estate's handyman, and, of course, the eponymous Crusoe, steal this show, as they conspire to keep the little critter a secret. There is a series of comical scenes depicting the havoc wreaked by their failed attempts, and soon Crusoe has grown much to large to hide. Into the Loch he goes, to live the life he was meant to, but his very existence is threatened by the maneuvers of a battalion of artillery men who are charged with protecting the loch from German subs (really!)
The Water Horse is a truly magical story, suitable for all ages. Pop some corn and settle in with Angus and Crusoe on the next dark and stormy night.
Wonderful Family Film Apr 10, 2010
Finally got to see this move on FX the other night, after seeing it, I came right to this site to buy it. This movie captured my heart, I just fell in love with little Angus, and Caruso. a definite "feel good" movie. War... well, in life and movies we don't want to see that stuff, but it's part of life! It's so nice to see that they remember how to make a good movie that isn't full of murder, blood and guts, fighting, and sex!! something you can enjoy as a family from young to old, and I praise the story, acting and quality. Cant wait for it to come to watch it again with my nephews! Debbie
The Kid Should Have gotten The Bends! Mar 14, 2010
I haven't been able to watch the entire movie, it goes through long spells of people in war tiem doing something. Can't hang around long enough to care. Maybe the budget was short and they could only do a little story about the Waterhorse and then plump out the movie with the people parts. ZZZzzzzzzzzz......
On the plus side, the cinematography was phenomenal, the music score ditto, the FX on the Waterhorse likewise. But why didn't the kid get the bends when the Waterhorse took him down very deep, very fast and brought him up even faster? At least his eardrums should have exploded. And the boy's red, red McCauley Culkin lips creeped me out!
Good story, Beautiful scenery Feb 1, 2010
I picked up this DVD at a Blockbuster closeout. My three-year-old daughter has been watching "Dinosaur" over and over and over again for about a year now, so much so that we just replaced our scratched-up DVD with this Blu-Ray.
Since I've watched it repeatedly, too, I find it to be a pretty good movie. (Good thing she didn't fixate on Night of the Comet.) It's a good story, so much so that I don't want to spoil it for you here, with good characters and beautiful scenery. Each time I watch it, I catch something new.
Water Horse is rated PG for being set in Scotland during WWII. There are loud shelling scenes, but no blood and guts, except for a killed deer. (No nightmares from any of it.) Enjoy!
