At long last! I managed to catch this one this afternoon at 3.55pm with my brother & his girfriend and the verdict? It’s GOOD! It’s definitely one of the better movies I’ve watched in awhile. After 2 duds in “The Wolfman” and “Clash of the Titans”, I’m glad I that I made time for this one.
It’s got great characters, great 3D animation and the story-telling’s way better in this DreamWorks flick compared to the above-mentioned movies. I really liked Hiccup who is the protagonist in this heart-warming tale of a boy who befriends a dragon and in the process discovers more about them. Gerard Butler does a great job too as Stoick, Hiccup’s dad.
Dragons in general aren’t adorable but the animators did a bang-up job making “Toothless” the dragon a very likeable creature. He may look mean and serpent-like but you’ve gotta watch it for yourself to understand what I mean.
My only regret is that we couldn’t get tickets for the 3D version of the movie. It definitely looks like it’d be a great watch in 3D.
I give this one a solid 5 out of 5.
Rating: 5 stars (out of 5)
