How to Train Your Dragon (2010)

Animated adventure set in the mythical world of burly Vikings and wild dragons, based on the book by Cressida Cowell. This is from DreamWorks Animation (Shrek, Madagascar).

On the island of Berk where fighting dragons is a way of life, a teenage Viking called Hiccup (Jay Baruchel, Knocked Up) is out of favour in the eyes of his tribe and his chief, his father Stoick the Vast (Gerard Butler). When Hiccup is included in Dragon Training, he takes the chance to prove to everyone that he's a natural fighter. But instead of fighting them, Hiccup winds up befriending a dragon, and attempting to set a set a new course for dragon and Viking relations.

Also screening in 3D.

A thrilling drama interspersed with amusing comedic elements (rather than the other way around).

How To Train Your Dragon is the story of Hiccup (voiced by Jay Baruchel) a scrawny wannabe Viking, who works as a trainee blacksmith while his Viking father and leader Stoick (voiced by Gerard Butler who appears to be channeling Leonidas from 300 at times) tries to protect their village from the invading forces of dragons.

Works enough miracles of 3-D animation to charm your socks off.

A 3D movie that will intrigue kids and adults alike but might play raggedly in both camps.

The start wobbles, but once boy and dragon connect, this becomes a thrilling flight.

Really good movie, 6 and 4 year olds raved about it, a little scary in places though. I thought it was great.

Great movie - even in 2D!

I've really enjoyed this movie - I can't be bothered with the 3D hoo-ha, but the animation is still just as rich and satisfying in 2D - this is the kind of film you HAVE to see on the big screen to appreciate - and it's great fun for young and old (I'm in the latter category!).

Not for little kids

This film has great action sequences - in fact it's really one great big action sequence without a huge amount of let-up. Enjoyable for the adults and older kids, but don't be fooled - this ain't no Madagascar. Nowhere near the laughs and a whole lot scarier than any of Dreamworks recent efforts. So don't take the little kids unless you want to spend...

A really cool film. Good story, good characters, good animation. Not just for the kids - though kids would like it too. I'd recommend seeing it in 3d, which I did, but I'm sure it will still be good in 2d.

Do yourself a favour, see this film

This a great mature family film, that will satisfy both adults and children alike. While it provides a few chuckles, it also provides a deep, dramatic story and is very well animated. Possibly one of the better animated films out of the last ten years.
