Hiccup is a Viking teenager who aspires to hunt dragons, but doesn't exactly fit in with his tribe's longstanding tradition of heroic dragon slayers. His world gets turned upside down when he encounters a dragon that challenges him and his fellow Vikings to see the world from an entirely different point of view.
DVD ; widescreen presentation ; Dolby digital 5.1 surround (English, French and Spanish) and 2.0 stereo. surround (English).
Entertaining, yet afterward, I still felt little confidence in my ability to tame a dragon. As educational material, in that regard, it failed. I did, however, learn that Vikings sounded like they were from Glasgow. Fun fact.
This is a really fun movie with a great message: that you don't have to be the big, strong, popular boy to save the day. This movie includes a geeky boy as the protagonist and a strong girl helps him in his quest to save their village.
The movie also has a great message about not making assumptions about people or animals, nor giving up on anyone just because they are difficult. I also like the fact that brains, rather than brawn, save the village.
I love this series of books. I was so excited to watch this movie with my kid, but it was just terrible. Also, it was nothing like the book. If you are looking forward to watching a movie that is from a book you loved this is not it. This movie took the title of the book series and that was about it, all the rest of the plot, the characters, the way they look, their personalities, are mostly invented for this movie only. I found the movie lacking in everything that the book excelled at.

kong fu panda I'd not really liked very much this is off in same spirit, but some how closes well! The character pack animals in panda is kinda story itself, but only dragons people they're collective things turns out well! Although admittedly it's a children's film & design dragons will miss adults as childlike the moral dragons a super dinosaur type beast deliver plunder from human village not bad nor heavy handed! Even unforeseen as to suddenly point of these repeated exploits falls upon...
My family absolutely loved this movie. It is a fantastic story about a teen boy, a misfit, and how he befriends a dragon. The two end up being friends and teaching each other, and the whole clan, lessons about life and love. Fantastic movie.
I honestly thought that this was going to be a terrible movie. The trailers didn't seem all that interesting and the reviews were really bad, but I went and checked out the movie for myself because many of my friends insisted that I see it. I was actually a really good movie! It is a really great movie for kids, but there are also parts that adults will enjoy as well. I love this movie and I highly suggest that you see it.
