The Water Horse: Legend Of The Deep Review


OK
It has to be the most incongruous concept for a family film ever. Take the myth of the Loch Ness monster, marry it to a near note-for-note take on E.T., and pepper the entire thing with a World War II era British boy's adventure tale. Add in the millennium-mandated CGI, some standard kid vid slapstick, and an ending that sees both Das Boot and Free Willy inadvertently referenced, and you've got Jay Russell's incredibly surreal The Water Horse: Legend of the Deep. While this cobbled together effort offers some intriguing ideas, things get messy quickly, and quite often.

It's the mid-point of WWII, and the household staff of a massive Scottish manor is taken aback by the arrival of an entire English battalion. They are there, on express permission of the owner, to guard the local lake and prevent German U-boats from advancing on UK positions. Among the servant family affected are head housekeeper Anne MacMarrow (Emily Watson), and her children Kristie and little Angus (Alex Etel). She's already suffered a wartime loss, and doesn't want her children harmed further. Into their life come two distinct beings. One is new handyman Lewis Mowbray (Ben Chaplin). The other is a baby "water horse" -- a mythic creature that takes an instant liking to Angus. While he tries to protect the beast, the forces of war threaten everyone -- and everything -- on the estate.

GLADIATOR star Joaquin Phoenix learned the hard way not to play pranks on director Jay Russell, after the film-maker sought wicked revenge on him.

While filming new movie LADDER 49 with John Travolta, 29-year-old Phoenix decided to play a small prank on Russell, but he soon ended up in a much worse situation.

Phoenix says, "Jay and I started a little war. I got shoe polish and I put it on his headphones. The crew was trying not to laugh because he had these circles over his face.

Phoenix Up In Flames


Jay Russell

THE VILLAGE star JOACHIM PHOENIX is desperate to see director's cut footage from his new film LADDER 49 after being told he almost went up in flames in one scene.

The actor, who plays a firefighter in the film, admits he had a few close calls with controlled blazes on the set, but he had no idea he became a walking fire at one point.

He says, "The director has been telling everyone that I caught on fire. I didn't really remember this and it seems like it's something memorable and I keep asking Jay Russell (director) about it and he said, 'I'll show you the footage. Your coat's on fire.'
