I’ve never been into cartoons when it comes to movies. If there’s something that I came to like, it’s pretty much because the plot is really nice or the quality of the effects is impressive.
I saw How To Train Your Dragon 2 last week, and I must say that it passed my two criteria. Its plot, from the beginning has always been something that outstood the others in its category. I like the positivity of the film, it’s impressive how it was able to sustain the aura even in the tensed parts.

I don’t know how Toothless can be so cute with his appearance that resembles a scary black cat. His eyes are green, probably like the ones that glow in the dark, and his skin, well, like their fur too. But he is such a lively creature and his smile is so adorable!
Hiccup, hmm he’s the typical underdog small but terrible type of protagonist. His virtues have helped a lot in going through it all, and that’s the most important thing. I kind of have little comments about him, but he proved himself anyway. I thought he was in his teens but it was mentioned in the film that he is now twenty which made it feel like his points were inappropriate and invalid.
I found his way of dealing with the dragon stealers stubborn, and childish. His father told him not to go yet he still did – alone, even if he knew that he wasn’t prepared or in any way armed while the other parties were. His reasoning was annoying at first, and how he couldn’t tell his father straight that there were actually dragon stealers lurking around.
I know it’s an animation and is meant for children but I don’t know he’s still twenty years old in the film so maybe they should’ve made him younger if he didn’t act like it. Lol, I am so intense!
Anyway, I like the part where he met his mom! It was such a cool scene, not the usual family reunion that we see every time. His mom is bad-ass!
His father, on the other hand is a true embodiment of royalty. He is brave, selfless – he always puts his family and people first before himself, and a man of his word. I felt happy for the three of them when they saw each other again!
The dragons, well they’re the reason why the film is nice!
Every flying scene is breathtaking – I suggest you watch it in 3D!
I highly recommend this film especially to the kids, because the lessons that are enclosed in the plot are really something that should be learned. It talks about hope, responsibility, priorities, respect, family, figuring out one’s real purpose and bringing out the best in yourself.
