How to Train Your Dragon Reviews
As mentioned above, the script, loosely based on the book of the same name, is utterly fantastic, finding the perfect subject that is suitable for both adults and children alike. A story of love and family encased in a coming-of-age tale, with dashes of drama, action and comedy. The visuals are stunning with gorgeous animation, and the score is by far one of the finest I've ever heard in any animated film, one that John Powell should be proud of - arguably it should have never lost the Oscar to 'The Social Network'. The characters are all relatable in their own way, with brilliant voice acting, but the greatest 9and probably the most expressive) character is by far Toothless, the feline-like Night Fury dragon. All-in-all, this is an animated masterpiece, one that is a constant flow of riveting and exciting drama.
This film has a good story not DreamWorks good but just good, a good set of characters, a great set of cast members, as always for DreamWorks amazingly done animation, some funny jokes and a great soundtrack.
But problems with the film is that the story is a bit cliched I mean not all of the film has cliches but most of the time there was some cliched. Another problem is that not all the jokes were that funny I mean there are some funny jokes but not all of them hit my mark like how they should do but they just don't and I don't get that.
Now that I've now finally have seen all the 2010 DreamWorks animated films I have to say that I find Megamind as my favourite from DreamWorks that year How to Train Your Dragon is in the middle and Shrek forever after is the worst from the year.
Now if I would recommend you watching it or not is a really hard thing to think about I mean if you are a fan of DreamWorks you can give it a shot, fans of Dragons in general can have a go, any fans of the original book the film is based on they can have a shot too but if anyone is not those kind of people then this isn't the movie for you.
I give How to Train Your Dragon a 7.5 out of 10 not a terrible movie but is not a good movie if you want to watch it I'd give it at least one watch before giving your own thoughts on it.
