      Movie Info

      Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) is a Norse teenager from the island of Berk, where fighting dragons is a way of life. His progressive views and weird sense of humor make him a misfit, despite the fact that his father (Gerard Butler) is chief of the clan. Tossed into dragon-fighting school, he endeavors to prove himself as a true Viking, but when he befriends an injured dragon he names Toothless, he has the chance to plot a new course for his people's future.

        Whimsical and exciting, How to Train Your Dragon is a high tale of adventure. The story follows a young Viking named Hiccup who trains to fight dragons in order to protect his town from their constant attacks; but secretly he nurses an injured dragon back to health and discovers that they're not the furious beasts that he once thought they were. Featuring the voice talents of Jay Baruchel, Gerard Butler, Craig Ferguson, America Ferrera, and Jonah Hill, the casting is pretty good. And, the animation is quite impressive, with some really interesting character designs. Additionally, John Powell provides a sweeping score that's full of excitement and wonder. At times the film gets a little preachy about being tolerant and understanding, but overall the tone stays fairly lighthearted. Something that the whole family can enjoy, How to Train Your dragon is a lot of fun.

        A charming, likeable animated story concerning an insecure boy (voiced by Jay Baruchel) who forms an unlikely friendship with a dragon named Toothless after being tasked with capturing one as the last step to becoming a man. The thing that makes this movie so special is its fearlessness and willingness to take big risks that do not fall into the cookie-cutter norm that we have come to accept with some animated films. Because of this, it possesses a degree of unpredictability which proves to be original and much more enjoyable. The voice acting is terrific, and the action scenes are fun and the film's versatility to all age ranges cannot go unnoticed. This is a stellar, near-perfect film.

        Riveting and visionary tale that gives new life to DreamWorks Animation SKG. How to Train Your Dragon has crisp animation and a compelling story, which helps justify this film to be ranked one of the top animated films for DreamWorks (as well as top animated films of all time). 4.5/5
