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.
