Animated comedy adventure based on the children's novel by Cressida Cowell. Teenaged Viking Hiccup (voice of Jay Baruchel) lives on the windswept island of Berk, where his father Stoic the Vast (Gerard Butler) is the tribe's feared chief, and fighting dragons is part of every young warrior's training. But Hiccup's destiny of becoming a prized dragon fighter takes an unexpected diversion when he saves and befriends an injured dragon, Toothless. Hiccup now embarks on a mission of his own to convince his tribe to abandon its barbaric tradition of ruthless dragon-slaying and try out some new methods.

This was a very good film. And if I sound surprised, it's because I am. I can't say I heard much about it when it was released at the cinema or afterwards on its DVD release and I mistakenly put that down to it being a very average film in a market with an over-abundance of very average films. Plus, whisper it, Pixar do tend to have the upper hand on Dreamworks. Oh, how wrong I was.

How To Train Your Dragon is a funny and well made film about Vikings (why aren't there more Vikings in films? I loved Vikings as a kid) and their ongoing battles with the dragons in the area. The story is simple and follows Hiccup as he tries to gain the respect of his father, the village leader, but simple does not equate to dull. There is a blend of visual and verbal gags that took me a couple of watches to pick up on, so it does stand up to a rewatch or two.

I sometimes think animated characters tend to blend into one, with nothing really to separate them. Here, each character is an individual, all have distinct personalities and all of them are a joy. Even the dragons have great characterisation.

The animation is brilliant, with extra points going to the dragons, obviously, but, perhaps not so obviously, the backgrounds and scenery. When Toothless is flying, it's thrilling to watch.

I sat and watched this with a huge grin of my face and it's a film that can be enjoyed by anyone (no kids in my household, just four adults and we all liked it a lot). Even the fact that the adults were Scottish and the kids American (Scottish Vikings being a bit historically inaccurate, to say the least) didn't bother me all that much.

Finally, one last point, can I have my very own Toothless please? He's just adorable.

This story is original, the animation beautiful, a family favourite for all time! No kissy scenes that makes adults sqirm. No rude or lewd gestures. Just a great story that will leave you wishing that you were a viking and had a pet dragon too!

I won't review the movie itself as many others here have already done so. I'm writing a review as a hard of hearing person and also as the father of a daughter who is deaf.

Unfortunately, Dreamworks have decided to NOT subtitle the 3D version of this film (The non-3D Blu-ray and the DVD version are subtitled). Subtitles are provided on the 3D version in Turkish, Polish and several other Eastern European languages but not in English

Why?

Dreamworks might argue that subtitles would spoil the 3D effect which is why they've chosen not to have them available but I've watched many 3D Blu-Rays with subtitles and I've never once found my vision of the 3D perspective affected. This potential argument of Dreamworks' also doesn't hold water when you remember they have provided subtitles in other languages

So, not really a review from me but more of a warning to those who are deaf or hard of hearing and might be considering buying this movie

I missed this film when it came round at the cinema and hesitated to buy it for my kids (girl aged 6 and boy aged 4) when it came out on DVD/Blu-Ray. Having taken the plunge I was very pleasantly surprised by this film that is now my kids' firm favourite.

The first time they watched it they were a little scared in places but never too much. Some supposedly young children's films still scare my kids so much that they're not keen to see them again but this film they wanted to see again straight away.

The animation is beautifully done (and stunning on Blu-Ray), particularly that of the main dragon which is more like a cat than a lizard, and I have to say that the big bad dragon at the end of the film is one of the most impressive CGI monsters I've seen in any film, children's or otherwise. The music is wonderful and you'll have trouble getting the theme out of your head if you watch the film a couple of times. The basic story is quite straightforward but the themes are nicely tackled - not always following the herd, being yourself, dealing with parental rejection, overcoming fears and prejudices...

All in all I'd say this is one of the best children's films of recent years, up there with Cars and WALL-E, and one which should appeal to both boys and girls (and young-at-heart adults too).

I was so glad I went to see this film and by the looks of everyone's face after the film I wasn't the only one who really enjoyed it; not only children, but I think the adults enjoyed it more!

The animation looks stunning, the voice's were spot on for the characters and the storyline was just... amazing.
You will fall in love with the characters, and will feel their emotion.

This film is one that could be watched many times, so I would recommend to buy this film than rent it.

Hiccup is a Viking ahead of his time. He is able to look at his own society much as an outsider would view it (Similar to "Eric, the Viking"). The village is besieged by dragons, but such is life for a Viking.

Hiccup, as an intellectual Viking creates a weapon that is able to injure the infamous Night Fury Dragon, one that has never been seen by his people. Hiccup tracks the injured dragon on his own, however is unable to slaughter it when it lays defenseless trapped in ropes from his own weapon. Rather he cuts the dragon loose. They become friends as he brings it food. Hiccup splits his time caring from the dragon he names Toothless, and attending dragon school. He learns secrets by about dragons by caring for one.

He applies what he has learned to dragon school, much to the amazement of his fellow students and instructors, becoming a child hero and legend. There is a young blond Viking lass he wants to impress. The plot is predictable and the movie is wonderful.
