I kind of liked it ...
23 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you're in the mood for a low-key, pleasant little kid-centric "lock-ness" monster movie, you'll enjoy this one. I started watching it in the background while it was on a TV movie channel and quickly got interested in it.

The basic premise is as follows: A helicopter carrying an important oil-drilling bit has crashed in a remote Canadian lake. The drilling company sends their small-submarine specialist (who brings his son) to recover the item. While there, the boy encounters an elusive local resident of the lake. In the midst of all this, a rival drilling company is trying to sabotage the recovery efforts ... and the story progresses from there.

There's nothing really special about the plot and the kid-centric aspect can be a potential turn-off for many adult viewers. However, in this case, the story is well done and the characters are well acted and interesting - so it was worth the time.

As long as you're expectations are for a low-key but well done little movie, you'll have a pleasant time.
