But the new friends soon discover they're right in the middle of an adventure when they find a mysterious monster that's been hidden deep in a temple for thousands of years. Josh tries to warn his father (Sam Neill) about the strange and magical creature, while Ling senses bigger forces at play.

Producer Mark Patterson said that this film was "my first foray into China and the first official Australia-China co-production to be produced between the two countries. A huge adventure, often challenging but a big learning curve on international co-productions, above average Australian budget and of course complex VFX. I look forward to going back with a far better understanding of how to work in China." See more »

I recently watched this film with the kids and coming from a family of divorce was very impressed with the father/son relationship included in the plot.
The effects were great and the kids really loved the dragon!
Acting was also good was nice to see a familiar face in Sam Neil and I found Li Lin Jin's performance very impressive!
Would definitely recommend this movie to others, especially families with children and preteens. It is an exciting, humorous and original plot and had the kids on the edge of their seats the whole way through.
