Hiccup is a scrawny but brainy viking who doesn’t fit in (stop me if you’ve heard this befor
This is a movie starring a dragon and it’s not only not awful, it’s rather good. Additionally, this is a movie starring (Scottish!) Vikings and it’s not only not awful, it’s rather good. While the story is probably broken there is enough charm, fun and entertainment to cover it. Lilo & Stitch directors Chris Sanders and Dean DeBlois successfully use similar character designs for their unusual-looking dragons (and they also look like Monsters Inc.’s Randall Boggs) while the animators take sterling voice work from Jay Baruschel and Gerard Butler and embody them in the best character animation Dreamworks has ever done. Not certain why Hiccup needed to SPOILER lose his leg at the end but it’s genuinely refreshing to see a Dreamworks animation not stuffed with sexual jokes and cross-species breeding (or bestiality as it’s known in the human world) and this is their best film since Shrek 2 in 2004.
This movie contains violence.
