After the first movie hit a huge success (too bad they should compete with the flawless 'Toy Story 3' in that year), Dreamworks finally did it right by producing its sequel and taking its level to a higher one with more mature character since they are teens now, while the new cha...

Hiccup and Toothless battle a dragon-trainer bent on destroying their village.
The bookending voice-overs are textbook examples of how not to do voice-overs, but the interceding story, while predictable and essentially cliche, is delightful. Most of the action is fun, and the st...

If 2010's "How to Train Your Dragon" helped put DreamWorks Animation on the map as a legitimate contender to the Pixar throne, then "How to Train Your Dragon 2" is visually one of the most impressive animation experiences ever. Created as the first DreamWorks animated film to use...

how rare to find a sequel as good, or maybe better, than its predecessor. the animation was superb, the character development outstanding, and the story about as epic as one can get for a kids movie. the film jumps forward 5 years, a plot device that usually leaves one baffled,...

HTTYD2 just seems to be one of those rare franchises that manages to hit the sweet spot despite being a "milking it" sequel.

How to Train Your Dragon 2 is a different film than its predecessor which is a good thing. Sequels should bring new things to the table and never try and imitate the first film too much. With that said, this sequel doesn't do much with the new material and what we get is an avera...

Being bigger doesn't always mean it will be a better film, in fact, most films fail due to that exact reason. "How to Train Your Dragon 2" is not one of those films. This is just as heartwarming as the first film was, and that is saying a lot. Although the trailer for this movie ...

This sequel expands the world of the Viking dragon-riders of Berk, as an outsider seeks to raise a dragon army to destroy the peaceful settlement. Appealing sequel with soaring animation and a major plot surprise.

With brilliant CGI/visuals, a solid story and fun for all ages, How to Train Your Dragon 2 supplies the family-oriented entertainment and perilous elements which builds on to its series. The long awaited sequel is another positive notch for the DreamWorks batch. 4.5/5
