Critic Reviews for How to Train Your Dragon
It's a foolproof scheme for picture making: take the plot elements of favorite movies, paint the concoction with bright colors so it looks like the zazziest customized car, set it running at NASCAR speed, and you have How to Train Your Dragon.
What we have here is an exhilarating epic that mixes comedic and touching moments with some of the best action sequences ever created with CGI animation.
Toothless has the one precious ingredient that's missing from so many of Hollywood's contemporary animated characters: an air of mystery.
It's charming, funny and a lot like Avatar, though less solemn and an hour shorter.
Based on the book by Cressida Cowell, the movie from writer-director Dean Dubois is funny, well-drawn and imaginatively structured so that adults need have no fear about taking the kids to it.
Audience Reviews for How to Train Your Dragon
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
An allegory for how to get along with any animal. Especially cats.
