How To Train Your Dragon
From the studio that brought you “Shrek,” “Madagascar” and “Kung Fu Panda” comes “How to Train Your Dragon” – a comedy adventure set in the mythical world of burly Vikings and wild dragons, based on the book by Cressida Cowell. The story centers around a Viking teenager named Hiccup, who lives on the island of Berk, where fighting dragons is a way of life. The teen’s smarts and offbeat sense of humor don’t sit too well with his tribe or its chief, who happens to be Hiccup’s father. However, when Hiccup is included in Dragon Training with the other Viking teens, he sees his chance to prove he has what it takes to be a fighter. But when he encounters (and ultimately befriends) an injured dragon, his world is flipped upside down, and what started out as Hiccup’s one shot to prove himself turns into an opportunity to set a new course for the future of the entire tribe.
This animation had a slow patchy start, but once you get over that, it was one hell of a ride for me.
I couldn’t believe it was that good, indeed it was. Dreamworks has delivered once again.
Great CGI, excellent voice-over, brilliant comic timing and the story although nothing original, it was captivating.
There was the usual hero to-be and the conflict for him and his merry-gang of misfits to overcome.
Bring your kids, hell bring your family, it’s for everyone!
