In its final scenes, when truth and superstition collide, the film becomes more preposterous than anything Penn may have contrived earlier.
75
Watching the movie is an entertaining exercise in forensic viewing, and the insidious thing is, even if it is a con, who is the conner and who is the connee?

Once the cat is out of the bag, "Incident" becomes simultaneously entertaining and disappointing.

New York Post
Can be taken as a parable about cinema art vs. commerce. If that's too much to think about, just enjoy the off-beat humor.
75
A giddy mockumentary.

The Hollywood Reporter
Incident at Loch Ness manages to cross "Project Greenlight" with "The Blair Witch Project" in a way that makes one pine for the originals.

It's actually a clever commentary on documentary filmmaking, an pretty good monster movie to boot.

Entertainment Weekly
Incident at Loch Ness, unfortunately, is a riddle wrapped in a hoax stuffed inside a crock.

New York Daily News
Herzog, who deadpans his way through the high jinks, is the best thing about the movie, but even he gets wearisome before Nessie has sunk the boat.
50
Starts cleverly but becomes more preposterous as it goes along.

The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
A successful hoax is annoying for everyone except the hoaxster. No one enjoys being the credulous, unsuspecting dupe of a wise---joke -- personally I loathe it.
