Review: How To Train A Dragon


A Viking teenager named Hiccup lives on the island of Berk, where fighting dragons is a way of life. The teen’s smarts and offbeat sense of humor don’t sit too well with his tribe or its chief… who just happens to be Hiccup’s father. However, when Hiccup is included in Dragon Training with the other Viking teens, he sees his chance to prove he has what it takes to be a fighter. But when he encounters (and ultimately befriends) an injured dragon, his world is flipped upside down, and what started out as Hiccup’s one shot to prove himself turns into an opportunity to set a new course for the future of the entire tribe.

The trailer made me want to watch the movie, but its a been while since I’ve seen an animated movie this good. I have been a fan of Dreamworks for sometime, but their bes movie was Kung Fu Panda, but now I think it has been topped by How To Train A Dragon. Hiccup is the oddball of the Viking country, not really thinking like them, having other ideas, and coming to other conclusions even though he stands out from all his countrymen. The story is original, its fun, and the characters are entertaining, watching it in 3-D is amust even though my eyes were watering halfway through the movie. I loved those dragons, if ever any kid had a dream one of them has to be to have a per dragon. The animation is so good you can see the expressions on all the different dragons, the funniest and coolest of them is Toothless, Hiccup’s dragon. Its funny how they mould together because of Hiccups mechanil skills to make such inventions to help him fly again, and bond together. I highly recommend this movie for everyone to see, it can’t be missed.
