“How to Train Your Dragon 2” Movie Review

4.5-Watertowers(Wonderful)

Five years after the events in the last movie…..the people of Berk and the dragons are living in harmony.

how to train your dragon 2Instead of participating in the dragon races, Toothless and Hiccup (voiced by Jay Baruchel) are exploring, and mapping, the surrounding area…..something that until dragons and humans learned to get along was nearly impossible to accomplish.

One day while exploring they are attacked by dragon kidnappers who bring the captured Dragons to the evil Drago (voiced by Djimon Hounsou). They escape but learn that Drago is planning to attack Berk and, with the evil Alpha Dragon under his control, control all the dragons in the realm.

Toothless and Hiccup are flying along after escaping Drago’s bounty hunters when they are overtaken by another dragon and pilot (for lack of a better word) and end up in a wonderous land of dragons run by a good Alpha Dragon and Hiccup’s long lost Mother, Valka (voiced by Cate Blanchett).

“How to Train your Dragon 2” is a wonderful “good vs evil” movie covering the full range of emotions before the ending.  Fine for the whole family, but, be warned that deaths do occur. The computer graphics are spectacular.

Overall, a great sequel, that, in my opinion, is better than the first.

We recently watched “How to Train Your Dragon” on VUDU.

 

Go to IMDb for more information.  We watched this at the Tracy, CA CineMark.

    Good review Mike. It’s a lot darker and more grown-up than the first, which actually makes it a bit better. Yet, they’re both fantastic movies in their own rights.
