      Another Fantastic Film From DreamWorks

      Posted
      Disney90s

      Another Fantastic Film From DreamWorks Sequels in a beloved franchise tend to take all the things that made the first film a hit and Make Them Bigger. We might label this phenomenon Sequelitis, or maybe Sequelization Syndrome. And that's definitely the case here. There are more dragons, more pyrotechnics, more characters, more intensity, more at stake. Parents wondering if the sequel is as suitable for young viewers as the original might want to take note of all those mores—while remembering that it's a swath of dragon fire that can burn both ways. There's also more heroism, for instance. And the story's poignant focus on the power of a father and mother's influence is deeply compelling—as is their marital reconciliation and rekindled love for each other. It's the kind of pro-family storytelling that inspires you to want to be a better, more helpful, more loving member of your own family. Hiccup isn't left to just follow his dreams, rather he learns about responsibility and leadership, as well as the work required to see things through. But it's the battle scenes that will feel more more than the rest of those mores. Dragons and humans die in intense skirmishes that I found myself mentally comparing to the likes of Godzilla and The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. Things never get that grim or gory, of course, but the combat is rarely merely cartoony. A few worship-minded references are made to the Norse gods, as well, and wickedness feels palpable in the dark Drago. All of that makes this a film several degrees more complex in its portrayal of human (and dragon) goodness … as well as in giving us a shadowy glimpse of the opposite. So while How to Train Your Dragon 2 is every bit as entertaining and engaging as its predecessor, it's traded some of the whimsical, childlike wonder for a more nuanced—and at times darker—examination of the clash between good and evil.

      Better then the first

      OK this movie really does have it all. it's very funny, it's cute, it's action packed. and a little shocked but it may also leave you in tears. I love the first one so much that I bought it, three times, DVD/Blu-ray/ then the Blu-ray 3D.. but it was worth it.. I'd say the same thing for this one as well. but just get the 3D version , If you have a 3D TV , The 3D effects are better then most ., a lot of stuff comes right at you, the only thing I can say that even could be considered a negative , is that there is not any character development of the kids from the first movie. except for Hic Up's girl friend. other then that the only character that get any real screen time Hic-Up and we find a few cool new things about Toothless , and a newcomer ( won't spoil it for you ) I will give a slight warning. for parents who have small children this movie does have a very sad scene in it. again I won't spoil it but I would suggest finding out what it is, before you think your child could take it or not. I Just can't praise this Movie enough. A+

      How To Train Your Dragon 2 is a surprisingly good sequel. The animation is, of course, outstanding but more then that, the story is very well written too. The cast from the original movie is back. Some time has passed from the end of the first adventure and the characters have grown (as one would expect of mid to late teenagers). There are new characters, new villain's (dragon and man) and we learn much more about Hiccups mother who is also introduced in the film. There are many fun and exciting things for people of all ages to enjoy. There is also a very sad passing of one character that was an emotional punch in the heart but it fits well with the storyline. (I do not want to say more as it would spoil part of the movie.) DreamWorks has done it again. It is not often one can say that a sequel was as good, or better, then the original but this is one of those rare VERY WELL DONE sequels. Grab some popcorn, snuggle up with a blanket and a loved one (child or special someone) and enjoy the flight!

      Five Star Film - Three Star Release

      Let me preface this by saying I absolutely love this film. It was a beautiful sequel to the original and wonderful entry into the overall Dragons franchise. However, it's almost criminal how badly they transferred this gorgeous film to home release. I saw it twice in theaters and this home release is watered down and disappointing. The first film had a breathtaking home release - it's downright glorious. Where this one falters is the audio. There's absolutely no depth, no expansion. Scenes that were enhanced by the score in the theater just don't measure up at home. It's like it's not even the same audio track at all. Furthermore, and I'm looking in to seeing if it's a glitch on my end, there is an issue with audio syncing in spots bad enough that it's noticeable. That is, there are distinct moments when lips are not moving at the exact time they should. It's distracting in some places more than others. If this is actually the release, then this is unacceptable.

      Lot More Fun Than I Expected

      So I bought this as a gift for my daughter. She loved the first one and I figured this was a gimme. We sat and watched it day after Christmas and we all had fun. There were a couple of plot holes that I would have liked explained, but that's just how I am. It's a good movie about family dynamics and coming of age. I wasn't particularly interested in watching it when I heard about it. However, having seen it now, I would watch it again. The special features had some nice things. Blu-Ray had the bonus episode that gives you a little history on the dragon races they run. Then there are neat little presentations on the different types of dragons, weapons and inventions used in the movie. So if you have a kid that likes to collect cards and get all the stats on things they're sure to enjoy this.

      Great film but lacking

      I never had the chance to experience How to Train Your Dragon 2 in the theater and I'm also a huge fan of the first film, so I was excited to finally pick up 2 and check it out. How to Train Your Dragon 2 is another stunningly beautiful film from Dreamworks matching, if not exceeding, the first film. What I found lacking in this film however was the same level of charm that the first film had. It has a good story with much more emotion for the human characters but I really enjoyed the relationship that was built between Hiccup and Toothless in the first film. I almost wish that 2 had focused more around the dragons again but still had strong human connections. How to Train Your Dragon 2 is a great movie don't get me wrong, but it feels like a lesser movie that the first installment.

      It Tries a Little Too Hard

      Don't let my 3 star rating fool you, this isn't a bad movie and I would give it 3.5 stars if I could. That being said, the first film is far superior in every way. Most of the character progressions don't feel like a logical extension of the first film and they come off as feeling really artificial and 1-dimensional. The plot is also dubious at best and it really makes me question if they actually thought about how the dragon ecosystem works with the conflicting social hierarchies they present. The villain is also ridiculous. However, there are some touching moments and some pretty funny writing. Kids will love it, I think, but it's not a "must watch" for everyone like the first How Train Your Dragon is.

      Not as good as the first, but still enjoyable

      Aside from Avatar, the first How to Train Your Dragon was the best 3D movie I've ever seen. Along with great effects, the storyline was engaging and original, something you'd expect more from a Disney movie than a DreamWorks picture. Add in some good humor and action, and it was a move even adults could enjoy. This sequel follows up the original well. I'd say its not as good as the first from an adults perspective, because its not as original and in some ways its a bit of the same. However, this movie ups the action and includes many more dragons and riders than the first movie, which should be a hit with kiddos. Overall, not as good as the first but still an enjoyable movie worth owning if you have kids.
