The Water Horse: Legend of the Deep 
Has an Unexpected Dark Side
3/4 stars

I’ve always been curious about the loch ness monster but this is the first feature film I’m watched that focused on such a mythical creature. Even though there’s a lot of CGI, it doesn’t take away the emotional aspect of the story, which is about growth and maturity (which is reflected physically by the monster). This reminded me of a lighter version of “Pan’s Labyrinth” (because of the backdrop of the story is World War II) and “Free Willy” (during the final sequences). I found myself really rooting for the good guys and despising the “bad guys” to the point of vocalization! Not only that, I was really touched during the film’s emotional parts, such as the interactions between the main character and his father. Sci-fi action and drama aside, this also has comedic moments such as when particular characters would greatly exaggerate statements and those that were listening at the time would roll their eyes or look at each other with disbelief. Moments like that doused a little bit of the darker side of the film. Like most great children’s movie, this has darker moments and real peril which makes it that much more exciting, which means adults can enjoy the film as well.
