Summary: With focus maintained on the well developed story and fantastic visuals, this animation film soars (literally and figuratively). It boasts exhilarating action/flying scenes, distinctly memorable dragons, and some charming moments. Engaging for all ages.
Summary: Sat and watched this with the family last night. I am not a big fan of the children's genre type films, although i have to admit the new cgi worked toons are alot more interesting then persay the ole Disney type films. There is a handful of ones i did like however. This movie was very cute and the storyline wasn't bad. I was a little bored through a majority of this but the ending picked up quite nicely.
Excerpt: Fire breathing creatures existed once upon a time and now they have been never great before. With a soul stirring tale and some terrific animation directed by Chris Sanders and Dean Deblois distributed by Dream works Based on the book by Cressida Cowell and co written by Will Davies tells the heart touching tale of a young Viking who teaches a lesson that dragons are not meant to be harmed.
Excerpt: Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) is a sarcastic young Viking who wants to be "cool" and demonstrate the strong and fearless Viking traits, but he's scrawny and doesn't fit in as a dragon-battling Viking; and as a result isn't anything like his dad, an intimidating and fearless Viking warrior chief, Stoick the Vast (Gerard Butler).
Excerpt: Hiccup is a cowardly by trying to fit in. His brave and strong father, Stoick the Vast, insults him for being so clumsy and causing trouble. Hiccup caught a dragon, a Night Fury that he named "Toothless," and discovers the real nature of this misunderstood beasts. This is a prime example of not judging a film based on a trailer. Unfortunately, I missed the 3D version, but nevertheless found the experience breathtaking in terms of animation, score and the story.
