What happens when two kids -- a boy and a girl from two different cultures who think they're destined for a boring vacation -- meet up with each other on a trip to an archaeology dig in China with each of their parents? That's the premise of The Dragon Pearl (2011), a family adventure mystery just released on VOD View on Demand and DVD and Blu-ray exclusively available now at Walmart with broader availability on DVD/Blu-ray on August 20, 2013.
Viewers will quickly learn this film turns out to be anything but an unexciting ho-hum sojourn. From Ketchup Entertainment, this picture stars Irish actor Sam Neill who Jurassic Park fans will likely recognize. The girl (Ling) and boy (Josh) are played by Li Lin Jin and Louis Corbett, respectively.
As the adventure unfolds the two curious young teens find themselves in a mystical temple. According to an ancient legend this mythical Chinese dragon needs its life force, emanating by a sacred pearl hidden somewhere deep inside a dark and secret chamer. It's up to the youngsters, against the better judgement of their parents, to fight evil to find regain control over the magical pearl and then return it to who it really belongs to.
