How to Train Your Dragon 2

The Gist: Hiccup finds out that a certain Drago Bludvist is seizing and gathering all the dragons with the intent of declaring war on Berk. He sets out to talk Drago out of war and convince him to leave the dragons alone. Things quickly go awry.

How to Train Your Dragon 2 is the sequel to the very successful How to Train Your Dragon, and is one of the best animated films I've ever seen. Nominated for a Best Animated Feature Oscar, I am flabbergasted that it lost out to the mediocre Big Hero 6.

Aside from the eye popping animation, How to Train Your Dragon 2 tells a wonderfully developed story that will make you laugh and cry, and will keep you tethered to the screen with your mouth agape. It's absolutely brilliant.

The Bottom Line: This is a movie that will delight the little ones as well as their parents. It's a truly wonderful story, told with care and skill by Dean DeBlois and his team. Don't miss it.

Grade: 9
