| Outstanding 1980s children's film.
This movie was a childhood favorite for my friend's and I. It contains a solid introduction to Chinese landmarks and culture for kids (after all, it is a kid's film).

I watched it for the first time since the 1980s recently and still enjoyed it.

For kids, it is packed with mystery, adventure, and the desire to learn other languages/cultures.

I recommend that any parent get this movie for their child. It is classy, clean, and educational-- in a fun way. Kid's love finding 'clues' in movies, and this does that in an exciting way.
