It's funny, touching, and intense. "How to Train Your Dragon" is a great film with a stellar voice cast. Animated features don't get much better than this.

The premise was interesting and the film was suprisingly deep. The 3D sequences are really well done and character was really created for the dragons as well as the humans. There was dramatic depth but the only criticism I have is of how much attention was put on these dragons..

Father/son relationship issues and Vikings with Scottish accents aside, I absolutely loved this non-pixar CGI cartoon. The characters are well throughout and the action/comedy doesn't come at the expensive of story and vice-versa. The animation is great and the voice cast - apart...
