While filming in the Consolidated Gold Mine in Dahlonega GA, there were live bats living in the mines. During filming bats would occasionally fly about spooking both the cast and crew. CGI bats were added to specific scenes, since the bats aren't very good actors and couldn't fly on cue, but frequently in the mine scenes the bats you see are in fact, real bats. See more »
Fans of the Mandie books and the previous Mandie film (Mandie and the Secret Tunnel) will probably enjoy this offering as well. For others it is a marginally entertaining family adventure film that probably won't hold a lot of interest. Young Lexi Johnson is personable and lively and gives a solid performance in the lead role. Many of the supporting performances appear much more amateurish.
Fans of Hayley Mills will be disappointed to find that, despite major billing, she appears (as Mandie's grandmother) in only about 6 minutes of the film.
Overall, if you are looking for family adventure films, you can do a lot better.
