"The Water Horse: Legend of the Deep" is a 2007 fantasy-adventure film directed by Jay Russell and based on a novel by Dick King-Smith. The movie is set in Scotland during World War II and follows the story of a young boy named Angus who discovers a mysterious egg while walking along the beach. The egg hatches into a sea creature that Angus names Crusoe and raises in secret with the help of his sister and a hired hand. However, as Crusoe grows larger and becomes more difficult to keep hidden, Angus and his friends must find a way to release him back into the sea without getting caught by the authorities who are searching for a monster that they believe is a threat to national security.

The film features impressive visual effects that bring Crusoe to life and make him seem like a real, living creature. The performances of the young actors, especially Alex Etel who plays Angus, are also noteworthy. The movie's Scottish setting and the wartime context add depth and historical significance to the story.

"The Water Horse: Legend of the Deep" received generally positive reviews from critics and was praised for its heartwarming story, charming characters, and stunning visuals. However, some viewers felt that the movie was slow-paced and lacked action. Despite mixed box office results, the film has gained a following among families and fantasy-adventure enthusiasts, and it remains a beloved entry in the genre.
