How to Train Your Dragon

Posted by admin | Posted in Movies | Posted on 26-05-2011


A winning mixture of adventure, slapstick comedy, and friendship, How to Train Your Dragon rivals Kung Fu Panda as the most engaging and satisfying film DreamWorks Animation has produced. Hiccup (voice by Jay Baruchel) is a failure as a Viking: skinny, inquisitive, and inventive, he asks questions and tries out unsuccessful contraptions when he’s supposed to be fighting the dragons that attack his village. His father, chief Stoick the Vast (Gerard Butler), has pretty much gi… More >>

How to Train Your Dragon is the latest from the stable of Dreamworks, but apart from the animation style, you’d never know it.

How to Train Your Dragon is the story of Hiccup, a Viking who feels out of place since he’s not a fan of killing the dragons the Viking’s world so revolves around in. But, when Hiccup captures the rare Night Fury Dragon and inadvertently injures it, the two become fast friends and attempt to bridge the gap of understanding between the Dragons & the Vikings. It may not sound like much, but things are deeper than they may seem here, and they are 3 reasons you need to go out and watch this movie right now.

1: Casting: Having seen Jay Baruchel as a geeky character in the film Fanboys, this film only solidifies for me the fact that Baruchel makes cliched characters feel real & brings traits out they wouldn’t have otherwise, and this fact is very evident here. The same is true for the rest of the cast. In Shrek 2, Larry King was wasted in a long-running and painful transvestite joke. Here, Craig Ferguson is perfect in the role not only because he’s Scottish, but he brings the appropriate mix of eccentric leadership needed for the right-hand man of Gerard Butler’s character, who is also well cast. The same goes for the rest of the cast with the possible exception of Jonah Hill, who always feels out of place in almost every movie he’s in.

2: Visual Effects & 3D: Now this may because the Viking environment hasn’t been portrayed much on screen before, but the film is stunningly beautiful, and that’s only reinforced by the 3D which is used better than Avatar in some cases, especially in the case of the flying sequences.

3: The Emotion/Uniqueness of the Film in Animation Today: The story gives way to many emotional moments in the film, all of which are played perfectly. And, not to give too much away, but at the end of the film something happens the to main character that was not only shocking to me, since I’d never seen something of its magnitude done in animation period, but to me it was also one of the most tear-jerking moments, especially in relation to what it does to the relationships & similarities between Hiccup & his dragon in the movie.

Overall, how do you train your dragon? With charm, love, understanding, amazing visuals & stunning 3-D flying sequences. This film ranks up there with Pixar’s best, and if I had any criticism towards the movie, it would be the fact that it’s made by Dreamworks, and with their quality lately, you don’t have high expectation entering this film. Nevertheless, How to Train Your Dragon gets a fire-breathing 5 out of 5.

I went with a total of 3 moms and 9 kids to see this movie in the theater last month. Every single one of the 12 of us loved this film, it’s cute, heartwarming and a whole lot of fun. From the story of a father trying to know his son (and his son trying to know him) to the boy and beast learning mutual trust, it’s full of feel good moments for the adults. From the silly antics to the cheesy jokes, it was full of entertainment for the kiddos.

This is well worth a watch and a great movie to watch with your kids – you won’t be bored and the kids will think you’re the super cool parent that you are.

Me? I want my own dragon, darn it!

The first Shrek and Kung Fu Panda were both very close to Pixar level in terms of storytelling, but How to Train Your Dragon is the best by far from Dreamworks. The animation is very high in detail, especially in IMAX 3-D, and the characters are not only likeable, but memorable. The main dragon, Toothless, is one of the greatest animated characters in a long time, and like Wall-E, he doesn’t even talk. All of the other species of dragons also have unique looks and personalities. The flying sequences here really show the power of 3-D as a tool to put the viewer in the movie, not just a gimmick. I would say it’s second only to Avatar when viewed through those funny looking glasses.

This film is more serious in tone than laugh out loud funny, much like the latest from Pixar (UP, Wall-E, etc.), but it does have quite a few laughs that come naturally, not forced. I’m so glad they stayed away from pop culture references. Both kids and parents will love How to Train Your Dragon equally and probably for much different reasons. The only thing that I didn’t care for were the first 10 minutes or so. Not that they are bad in any way, but it felt a little rushed. Once the film settles and Hiccup (the boy viking) meets the dragon, everything begins to click. The only other negative is that every kid is going to want a pet dragon for their birthday. Good luck with that!

I went to see this with my family, expecting it to not be much from the trailers. It turned out to be my favorite movie of the year. Toy Story 3 is being compared to it because it’s an animated film, but I give How To Train Your Dragon the edge in being a better movie. Without the nostalgia factor for Toy Story 3, I would say Dragon is the better original movie on it’s own. Highly recommended to anyone looking for a good movie from start to finish.

First of all, I’ve never actually read the book this movie was based on. Does that matter? In my opinion, not at all. I’ll be fourteen next month and I loved, loved, loved this movie. I went in expecting it to be ‘nice’ and such, but I came out in love! I sincerely felt for the characters, (dragons included!) unlike some of today’s biggest films. (Hello, Avatar? I could care less.) I know the plot isn’t that original, but it felt fesh and kept me enchanted. I loved the world Dreamworks created. Contrary to what some people are saying, I didn’t feel like Hiccup was too witty and had ‘a juno-esque feel’ to him at all. Additionally, I can’t even comprehend why some people are complaining about violence. Great movie!
