Chief Commissioner of the Supreme Court Yuchi Zhenjin (William Feng) has 10 days to solve the mysterious attack on a fleet of ships.
YOUNG Detective Dee: Rise Of The Sea Dragon is the prequel to the Detective Dee franchise and is directed by Tsui Hark.
The young Dee Renjie (Mark Chao) arrives in the Eastern Capital Luoyang amidst chaos. Several navy warships have been destroyed by what is suspected to be a “sea dragon”. The fearful citizens hope to appease the dragon by sacrificing a young maiden, Courtesan Yin (Angelababy).
She was chosen as a victim because she has angered many officials by refusing their advances.

He teams up with Dee, aided by a young doctor Shatuo (Lin Gengxin) to solve the mystery.
With Yuchi’s martial arts prowess, Shatuo’s medical skills, the trioraces against time to crack the case.
This is the first feature film by Huayi Brothers Media that is shot in stereoscopic 3D; its previous films like Painted Skin: The Resurrection and Taichi series were converted to 3D in post-production. (Unfortunately, the 3D version of Young Detective Dee: Rise Of The Sea Dragon is not screened in Malaysia.) – Oh Ing Yeen
