Editorial Reviews

In many ways, 11 year old Tim is the same as all boys his age. What makes his life different is that his father died before he was born and he s spent much of his time alone. One day, Tim s life changes completely, as he discovers a photo of a researcher living in Scotland, who looks exactly like his dead father! Overcome with excitement, Tim is immediately compelled to find out the truth. He sneaks off and makes his way to Inverness, the renowned Scottish village on the banks of the legendary Loch Ness. What awaits Tim surpasses even his boldest expectations. As magical as it has all been, when crooks kidnap his parents to get their hands on the fabled Philosopher s Stone, Tim discovers that he himself holds the greatest secret of all...

Format: DVD
The "secret" of this film is that Nessie is as elusive in this film as she is in real life. I watched the film with my 5 year old daughter, both of us expected to see a child-friendly adventure film about a boy searching for his father and Scotland's famous cryptid. The creature on the DVD cover IS NOT IN THE FILM!
I can not look over the fact that the monster only makes a few cameo appearances, which are just waves or shadowy images.

Parents beware, there are several swear words in the script that do not add to the film at all and are totally unnecessary.
I still can't understand why the director allowed this, as it adds nothing to the film. It makes me wonder of the original German version of this film had swearing in it, or were they added when the English dialog was dubbed in?

Somehow I think that this was once a run of the mill pre-teen adventure flick, recut to include dialog that tries to trick the viewer into thinking that this is a film about the Loch Ness Monster.

Stick with "Waterhorse" if you are looking for a family friendly film about sea monsters.The Water Horse - Legend of the Deep (Two-Disc Special Edition)

This could have been a cute movie for kids; I have a grandson the same age at Tim, and he wears the same style of glasses so I thought it would be perfect for him to see a little hero just like himself. Then, Tim starts lying, and even gets his grandfather to lie for him. But even more, I questioned if I should show it to him (and his older brother) because of the frequent profanity. The matter was settled when little Tim started swearing. I will not show it to them. This is one movie NOT to show your kids or grandchildren unless you want them to use profanity or become proficient liars. It's too bad . . . it could have been a nice, wholesome family movie.

And that's my son's quote, after having watched this. There is a picture of Nessie on it, and given the title, one certainly thinks it will be a movie about the Loch Ness monster. Not so. Swears, bad dubbing, terrible CGI, and a tepid love story. Awful. My kid was irate, and I was too.

My kids picked this one out based on the cover and synopsis. What we got was a lumbering movie with poor English actors doing the English dub, very little Nessie, and lots of profanity even from the 11 year old protagonist. The children declared it "terrible" and I had to discuss with them why it is not appropriate for them to use several words.

Not about the loch Ness monster at all. My kids commented that the movie was so confusing because they expected something totally different. The voice-overs are bad enough, and then they had to include several curse words, which could have easily been left out. Because of the high number of curse words, I would not consider this a family movie at all. I am honestly shocked that it is labeled as such.

This movie should only be seen on tv and is not worth spending the money. Even the grandkids were disappointed.
