How to Train Your Dragon 2 (2014)
Animated/Family, Rated PG, 102 Minutes.
Featuring Voices Of: Jay Baruchel, Cate Blanchett, Gerard Butler, Craig Ferguson
When Hiccup and Toothless discover an ice cave that is home to hundreds of new wild dragons and the mysterious Dragon Rider, the two friends find themselves at the centre of a battle to protect the peace. Available 12 November – Outdoor from 12 January 2014.
The sequel to the highly praised first feature is a strong stand alone film. Without seeing the original I was never left wondering what was happening as the past story-line is seamlessly integrated, feeding us important snippets of backstory along the way. Dragon 2 is a refreshing tale that focuses on the storytelling and not pop culture references to entertain. It’s a coming of age story of a boy and his dog, I mean dragon. It’s also a complex family drama and of course an epic scale dragon adventure. The action is really well staged the world’s are beautifully designed and then there’s the dragons. The creativity and imagination that has gone into all the different dragons is incredible. Dragons 2 makes me interested in catching up on the first film and left me looking forward to see the third.
Review out of five stars: ★★★★ Stars.
