The Water Horse: Legend of the Deep (Special Edition) (2007)
A lonely young boy vows to protect the rapidly growing hatchling that emerges from a mysterious egg found on the shores of a Scottish loch in My Dog Skip and Tuck Everlasting director Jay Russell's screen adaptation of writer Dick King-Smith's popular children's novel. Angus MacMorrow (Alex Etel) has made a most unusual discovery, and he's about to find out just how one innocent boy's greatest fantasy can also be a frightened adult population's greatest threat. Unable to identify the egg that he found while walking the sandy shores, Angus is even more perplexed about the discovery and the creature that emerges resembles what comes to be known as a Water Horse, which Angus names Crusoe. As the bizarre new life form begins to grow at an alarming rate, it soon becomes obvious that Angus will not be able to keep it a secret for very long, and the young boy will have to do some seriously quick thinking if he is to keep his new friend safe. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide

Director Jay Russell has yet another movie to his credit that is all-round excellent yet didn't reach its target audience: the American family. THE WATER HORSE, like "Tuck Everlasting" before it, deals with life, death and magic. Its form is fantasy, but so filled with realistic detail, thoughtful writing, and appealing, genuine performances is the movie that it pretty much mows down any objections as it builds in feeling and intensity until it reaches an extremely moving climax. "Tuck" left me in a puddle on the theatre floor, and "Water Horse" did the same in my living room. The "creatives" for both films--those in front of the camera and behind it--have taken stories that deal with loss and renewal (among other themes) and given them the respect they deserve, in the process bringing audiences up against some very interesting questions. "Tuck" ponders the benefits/drawbacks of eternal life, while "Water Horse" offers the "history" of Scotland's famous sea serpent. I highly recommend both movies to families--and to those adults who still harbor (and are able to get in touch with) the dreams and fears of their childhood.
