      Five years have passed since Hiccup and Toothless united the dragons and Vikings of Berk. Now, they spend their time charting the island's unmapped territories. During one of their adventures, the pair discover a secret cave that houses hundreds of wild dragons -- and a mysterious dragon rider who turns out to be Hiccup's long-lost mother, Valka (Cate Blanchett). Hiccup and Toothless then find themselves at the center of a battle to protect Berk from a power-hungry warrior named Drago.

      Audience Reviews for How to Train Your Dragon 2

      • Apr 01, 2016
        How to Train Your Dragon 2 has all the stuff we loved from the first movie but adds a lot more emotion and depth. This film is not only a gorgeously animated fun family flick but it's also pretty dark and is very action packed as well. How to Train Your Dragon 2 might be my favourite Dreamworks film and one of my favourite animated films of all time!

        With a heavy handed message about animal rights and one-dimensional characters, How to Train Your Dragon 2 is a disappointing sequel that lacks the sense of fun of the original. After learning that a Viking warlord is assembling a dragon army, Hiccup attempts to seek him out in order to negotiate a peace that will spare his village. The plot is pretty formulaic and follows the usual tropes of a sequel. Also, the tone is rather dark and is fairly light on the comedy. The animation however, is extraordinarily well-done and is especially crisp and colorful. How to Train Your Dragon 2 fails to recapture the wonder and thrill of the original, but it's still entertaining and has some exciting action.

        It plays out the "identity crisis" plot not uncommon in these kinds of animated sequels in a predictable fashion, but I can't deny it's entertaining.

        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.
