James Murphy is a rugged cryptozoologist, who thirty years earlier, during a trip to Loch Ness, Scotland encountered the fabled "Nessie" creature that killed his father, and left James with a deep facial scar. Thirty years later, James is hunting for Nessie, when his search leads him to the sleepy town of Pike Island, Ashburn, on Lake Superior. Hiring Josh Riley as his guide, James and Josh bond over their mutual scientific interests and deceased fathers, while James tries to convince Josh's mother, Sheriff Karen Riley, that the 60-foot plesiosaur is killing and breeding.

Murphy makes a claim to have "cyanide tipped bullets". Even though the sheriff had just released him, Murphy would have been immediately arrested again, since poisoned bullets are illegal anywhere in the U.S. or Canada. See more »

Nessie I think we are not in Scotland anymore.
19 August 2016 | by swedzinSee all my reviews

Yet another attempt to bring back good old Loch Ness monster to the big screen. In this case, smaller straight to video screen. The movie opens with group of lousy scientists who found an egg of plesiosaur. And few minutes later, Nessie founds them, and eats them. Along with the leading scientist, leaving only his son James. 30 years later James arrives at Lake Superior, somewhere in North America, near Canada, because he thinks that Nessie might be there.

Now, let's start with some questions. How did Nessie got there? Did it really took 30 years? Isn't this supposed to be about fabled Loch Ness monster? Yeah, Brian gives us answers during the film but those are not plausible at all. So, this is one of those low-B movies, with the revenge element. Because our leading hero James, played by Brian Krause (once a well known actor from late 80s and early 90s), who is a cryptozoologist, but only presents himself like that, because he only uses his knowledge to find the monster and kill every last one of them. So, that is the only one-dimensional motive that James has. James is rather dull, boring, non-charismatic, just settled to find and kill a monster, nothing more. And he looks clichéd with his rugged looks, fedora hat and long, trench coat. Just to give you an idea that you don't mess with him. Cuz' he hunts monsters. So, that's just about it. The movie revolves around James, and a sheriff Karen Riley and her loser son Josh. None of these characters are interesting, or developed, they are just there to get us through this boring ordeal. We also have supporting cast consisted from dumb, obnoxious and naïve teenagers who are just there to give a generic treatment to Josh. You know, the usual - bullying and mocking. We also have late Don S. Davis as a deputy sheriff. Don was a good actor, and not worthy of these kind of movies. Nothing much to say about other stuff, the CGI is friggin' terrible, script is usual stuff about vengeance, acting performances are not convincing, editing - meh, camera work is just wrong. While subjective camera is there to show Nessie's vision, the monster is show to move underwater, but when the camera is showin the vision, it's clearly ABOVE the water. Camera operator and the crew needs to get informed on how creature of this background works under and above the water. Now, one more thing. About the monster. I think it's important to say a thing, or two about the monster. It's silly. As I stated, the CGI is terrible, and at one point James's father said that Nessie is Plesiosaur. The monster doesn't even look like Plesiosaur, nor even like any of those dinosaurs of the same order. It likes like some sort of... well, dragon. And that's it. This is one of those movies that you should watch with friends to have a good laugh, or just trash it.
