I went to see this in theater a week ago with Amber and another of my friends. Amber’s a big How To Train Your Dragon fan, and she was planning the trip weeks in advance.
I have to say, I was not disappointed. The plot was totally different from the first movie, which was good, since a rip-off continuation of it wouldn’t sell very well. It was a good story, with a big twist about a quarter of the way through. It’s a giant change in the story, but I liked it a lot.
The animation was awesome. It must have taken forever to pull off scenes with giant dragon battles and… well, I don’t want to spoil anything!! All of the dragons were very well done, not to mention the people. The only thing I have against it is, even with the war scenes, there isn’t any blood shown. Then again, it’s animated, and animated blood is usually very awkward.
I honestly don’t know how to talk about this movie without spoiling things. It’s a very tightly knit story, with one thing leading to another, and it makes it easy to give spoilers.
The only thing you’re getting from me is that someone dies.
For awesome action, great story, and, of course, unforgettable characters, I give How To Train Your Dragon 2 four and a half stars. I recommend it for ages 5 and up.
Thanks for reading!!
