Audience Reviews for Dragons: Gift of the Night Fury

Watching the original was the best thing that ever happen to me and seeing how very important the "Legend of the Boneknapper Dragon" short was, I was surprised when Dreamworks Animation made another holiday special only this time with our main heroes from the first film. It has the same depth and emotion the original had when it managed to make a gap between the movie and the upcoming TV show on cartoon network in 2012 with a holiday theme.

The character development is one of the greatest aspects that made the story so original. The interactions between the vikings and the dragons were easy and likable. The only thing that stood out though was Hiccup and Toothless's bond (that showed how much closer they are becoming) and the relationship between Hiccup and Astrid worked perfectly well as well as the interactions/chemistry with feelings of comfort and warmth.

The baby dragons were so lovable they would make you go "awww" as it gave both the Vikings and Dragons to bond over with. I loved the ending where the Vikings are still attached to the dragons. The animation kept the movie to its speed and had the same level of detailed surroundings and movement the same thing the original did. "Gift of the Night Fury" is a heartwarming holiday special with an original story and it made us all love Hiccup, Toothless, Astrid and the rest of the characters on Berk and it's worth watching for fans of the original.

Just as good as the original film, but waaaaaaaay too short. And...baby dragons!!! I gotta admit, I lost a tear when Toothless wanted his old tail back on. :)

For a holiday special Dragons:Gift of the Night Fury could have been worse. D:GofNF is nowhere near as good as the original but still gives a good effort. Labeled as a Christmas special (though not really anything to do with Christmas) D:GotNF is lighthearted enough to provide 22 minutes of viewable cinema.
