Movie: How to Train Your Dragon 2
Genre: Animated Fantasy
Starring: Hiccup (Jay Baruchel, Cate Blanchett, Gerard Butler)
My Rating: Two thumbs up
So... everything is happy in Berk now! There's peace between humans and dragons. In fact, everyone HAS a dragon, just like Hiccup! But...then. Hiccup discovers there are some bad people killing dragons to give to an even badder guy (I forget all the names!) and this not good. He must be stopped! Of course Hiccup plans to do the stopping all by himself. However, his friends and even his dad come to help.
On the way, Hiccup discovers a pretty huge secret about his past, and it changes everything he thought he knew about himself. Or didn't know. And then the war begins, and sad stuff happens. And then happy stuff happens. And your emotions are all over the place!
Ah, how do they make such fun animated movies these days? How can they make a cartoon boy so freaking attractive? Maybe it's his voice. I don't even know that actor that voices Hiccup, but yeah. I love his voice! And how do they make us all want a pet dragon? It's crazy I tell you!
I saw it in 3D and the swooping flying dragon riding scenes were awesome! So awesome. I wish there were more Astrid Hiccup interaction scenes, but this movie was not about that, it was about other stuff, which you'll understand when (when!) you go to see it.
Anyway, it was great fun. I'm not much of an animated movie lover, but this series deserves its popularity and is one of the best.
Here's the trailer:
