It's hard to imagine that the final coda won't tug hard at the heartstrings of truly devoted fans who feel they've "grown up" alongside Hiccup and Toothless.

If you love this series, it will really please you, where these characters end up. Not as interesting as the first two, but still a damn good movie.

The Hidden World marks the beautiful culmination of so many of what the How to Train Your Dragon series has done so well.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4

This chapter, about growing up and moving on, has heart but lacks the warmth and comfort of its predecessors.

A visual gobsmacker accompanied by some intense action and an earnest, at times moving story about growing up and letting go.

Those who do recognize the thinness of the script may not find the vivid animation is enough to overcome it.

Adults and children will be awed the wonder and spectacle of the glorious animation. It's the perfect franchise ending.
February 22, 2019
For some, it'll be a moving conclusion to an epic series. For others, it'll be one less kids' franchise to worry about.

"How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World" still has the power to warm a cold heart, but the fire is less bright.

DeBlois struggles mightily to connect the resolution of one storyline to the resolution of the other, and it proves to be an overwhelming task. Still, it's a painless watch, with plenty of visual oohs and emotional aahs, and will surely leave fans happy.

How To Train Your Dragon allows itself to be attentive to details and in an unusual move, it seems like the artist shines through instead of the corporation. [Full Review in Spanish]

The Hidden World's animation is gorgeous and the story is gently mature, and the film is a perfect ending to a franchise that has explored relationships with insight and nuance.

This film feels like the studio wanted it to be the next step in its development toward more ambitious stories. Instead, it's a gorgeous hangout movie. There are worse things to be.

The Hidden World ends the How to Train Your Dragon movies on a strong note and shouldn't disappoint those who've spent the last five years anxiously awaiting the final chapter in Hiccup and Toothless' story.
February 22, 2019
This film implores us all to "train our dragons." Especially when those dragons are scary notions such as loss and heartbreak.

Stays aloft at mostly the same level as its predecessors.

While it doesn't exactly breathe fire into a well-worn franchise, this sequel isn't exactly toothless, either, especially in the visual department.
February 22, 2019
So this is also a story of a leader coming into his own as a decision-maker and compromise-broker. The animals may by fantastical, the society a pastiche of an imagined Viking-Celtic Golden Age. But the life lessons are real.

While the movie is amazing and a perfect ending to this franchise, the truth is that the villain of the film, Grimmel, is not really noteworthy. In fact, you leave the theatre not really remembering him.
February 22, 2019
The "How to Train Your Dragon" movies are respected - the first two garnered nominations for Best Animated Feature - but this third chapter doesn't garner more than a polite appreciation.
