Synopsis– The son of a Viking chief wants to be a Dragon-killing Viking, like the rest of the people that live in his town, but he is too different from everyone else and is often told he isn’t etiquette to be like the rest of them. Until he takes down a dragon in order to show people he can in fact be a viking. But instead of killing him he finds out how much like him this dragon is, and things change instantly.
The reviews for this movie have been of the charts good. And the trailer was really good, so I walked in expecting a really cool movie.
Well I was wrong, it wasnt a cool movie, it was an AMAZING movie.
I kinda knew the flying scenes would be cool, but they where THRILLING. In 3D the experience is seriously awesome. When Toothless takes Hiccup to go flying for the first time, this movie TAKES OFF. The character of Hiccup and Toothless where really good but when put together, they complete the best part of this movie.
Not only does this movie have a very obvious and good moral, but it is EXTREMELY touching. Almost Pixar-like.
The ending, and a lot of scenes in this movie where exremely touching and cute. Especially the ending. No a thrilling ending, but youll have to see it to understand.
This movie is family friendly, extremely fun, and it’s more then fun, its emotional and you care about the characters and you care about the movie, its definitely worth the money of 3D or IMAX.
Please do yourself a favor, and take your whole family to see this movie.
It’s nice to see Dreamworks do something other then fucking fart jokes, hip hop and sexual innuendo.
Romance: Short, Predictable. Good.
