The Water Horse

Took my 8 year old to see The Water Horse. The critics have been indifferent to this one but we both enjoyed it. For me it was the beauty of the Scottish landscape around Loch Ness and the Scottish accents. The ‘Water Horse’ was mostly well done effects wise.

The only time it stumbled was when the boy rode on the creature’s back. That’s one effect shot that has yet to be pulled off seamlessly. From Legolas on the back of the Cave Troll to Anakin riding the cow creature in Attack of the Clones to this movie, mixing a live actor with a CGI one just doesn’t jell.

And what 8 year old wouldn’t want their own special pet?
