Misfits Fit

I was blown away by this movie, really didn't expect it to be so great. It is wonderful to see a character who not only has a disability but is also (partially because of it) something of a social outlier. But brave, smart Hiccup carves out his own niche in a fantasy-Viking society. The dragon designs are varied and feel fresh and unique. It was especially cool to watch Toothless, a dragon with rather feline influences - like a black panther dragon. It is funny and has emotional resonance, but mostly it is a coming-of-age story wrapped in a grand adventure. The visuals are really impressive as well - soaring on dragonback has never looked better.

We really liked this movie.

It starts out a bit slow, but stick with it. It really heats up. :)


Our family all love the movie. The pictures and the characters and the stories all amazing.

Best movie ever

This movie is the best movie ever! I see reviews in the catalog and all they say is great, or cool or something like that just to earn summer game points; but this movie is something to write an essay about. It is actually heartwarming, not sad. The music is great and the plot is perfect. The first, and so far the only, movie to make me cry of sadness, then happiness, then a loss but I'm just happy that Hiccup is alive, then everyone in the village finds out that Hiccup is right about dragons, then the movie closes with a perfect speech and perfect music, and you want to cry but tear a pillow apart at the same time because you don't want it to end but you know that if they continue the movie or make a second one, it won't top the first one and then you'll hate the series forever; but I've heard that the second movie is good too, so I want to see it but I'm really afraid that it won't be as good as the first one. They say that frozen is the best movie but I think that that is TOTALLY WRONG! This one is. Frozen's plot takes to lond=g to get to the climax and the climax is a fail. Oh no, my sister is frozen, waaaaa. What? She's melting, yay! When was hugging an act of true love?!! This movie is the best.


This is a really amazing movie. It has all the qualities that a movie might need to make it the best!

Better Than I Thought

This movie was better than I thought it would be. I had been told it wasn't very good, but my kids and I enjoyed it. It was a cute movie.

Great Movie, but a Lots of Violence

I really enjoyed this movie and it was fine for my son when he got older, but I felt like there was too much violence, suspense and scary stuff for him before he was 8 or 9. I would not recommend this movie for younger kids. I'm pretty conservative in that realm and my kids have always been pretty sensitive to such things though, so keep that in mind when considering my review.

Good Movie

My kids liked the beginning, but lost interest toward the end. Looking forward to the part 2.


This book does not whatsoever follow the book. Its a good movie though just saying IT DOESN'T FOLLOW THE BOOK. His dragon is SO SO SO SO SO CUTE!

As an Instructional Video...

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.

Great for children and parents alike

I get very excited when I can find a movie that my child and I both really enjoy! Great story about a boy who does not fit in, but stays true to himself and in the end everyone respects him for it.

Dragons are friends

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.

Need a sequel

This is one of my all time favorite movies. I need a sequel!

Great movie for kids and parents

Great movie with a good morale and very funny. The adults enjoyed it as much as the kids. Really nice animation too. Highly recommend.


I love how Toothless behaves like a cat, the books are also good.

Fun movie

My kids and I all enjoyed this movie a lot. It is a really good story and nothing inappropriate for kids.

The book is way better and this is nothing like the book

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.

better dream...

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...


This was a great movie
