Critic Reviews for How to Train Your Dragon 2
Hats off to Dreamworks for offering some bold surprises in a respectable sequel filled with moments of humour and emotion among its ample noise and movement.
The writer and director Dean DeBlois takes the comedy to a deeper, more satisfying place than he did in the original franchise-launching animated film.
Overlong and overly busy but more emotionally powerful than its predecessor.
The entire film is a romance -- visually, parentally, ecologically. It's got the emotional, humorous, exciting sweep you want from a summer movie.
Although there are times when bits of the movie feel extraneous, the production as a whole comes across more like an organic extension of the original tale than something tacked on purely to score at the box office.
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.
