Movie Review: How to Train Your Dragon

How to Train Your Dragon

Hiccup has always been a disappointment to his father. He’s skinny, cowardly, and nothing like a Viking. In order to prove himself, he decides to go kill a dragon, and not just any dragon, but a Night Fury, the most feared dragon of all. While no one is watching, he actually does hit a Night Fury, and it tumbles down into the forest. Yet nobody would believe that he would hit a dragon, and so the next day he goes to find the dragon. However, its tail is damaged, and so it can’t fly. After gaining the animal’s friendship and trust, Hiccup makes a mechanism that helps Toothless (the Night Fury) fly. But sooner or later he has to choose between Toothless…and his village. His village is determined to wipe out all the dragons, and unless he does something about it, everybody is going to get hurt. Plus, dragons are not at all what he expected…
How to Train Your Dragon features Jay Baruchel voicing Hiccup and America Ferrera from The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and Ugly Betty voicing Astrid. It’s an excellent movie for your whole family to go out and watch.
I loved this movie. This was an animated feature, and I watched it in 3D with my friend. There wasn’t anything super amazing about it being in 3D, so I’m guessing you would get the same from it if you didn’t watch it in 3D. But it was an excellent movie. I really enjoyed all the animations and the plot line. It wasn’t emotional or anything, it was just really cute and I liked it a lot. Toothless, the dragon, was so adorable…
Voicing was good, and the animations were good. It was humorous at some parts too 🙂 Overall, very good movie for the family, and not what I expected especially since I’ve read the book that it’s based off of when I was little.
Go out and watch!

    I loved this movie too! I’m not big on seeing animations in theatres, but I actually thought this one was worth it.
