Critic Reviews for How to Train Your Dragon 2
If every installment can capture the same sense of escapism and passionate dedication to its ideas and images, then I'd be delighted to go on more flights of fancy with Hiccup and Toothless.
"How to Train Your Dragon 2" rises above its animated peers with more troubling themes, outstanding character design and innovative "camera" movements. And it rarely, if ever, takes the easy way out.
More alarming are the regressive messages about gender and race the film subliminally projects.
Continues a very compelling mythology I hope carries in to the third film.
It's as beautifully animated as its predecessor, but its mixed message is troubling: It begins by endorsing nonviolence, as Hiccup insists that friendship can be a more powerful motivator than force, but ends by bludgeoning the bad guys into submission.
Audience Reviews for How to Train Your Dragon 2
More dragons, more emotions, more surprises as in the wonderful original. Hiccup's journey into adulthood will leave no heart untouched, the humor is refreshing and the action breath taking. If only all animated sequels had this much heart and gall.
An enjoyable, if inferior, sequel concerning the adventures of Hiccup (voiced by Jay Baruchel) and Toothless, and how they come across an angry dragon trapper (voiced by Djimon Hounsou) who is bent on revenge and capturing all of Hiccup's tribe's dragons. A little on the long side, but still emotionally powerful with twists in the plot that are equally heartbreaking and surprising; if you were a fan of the first movie you should love this one too. The action sequences are still exciting and the characters are still very interesting, and it will be fascinating to see where the writers go from here in developing this series considering how beloved it has become.
