Based on Cressida Cowell's children's book in which a Viking Chief's son must capture a dragon in order to be initiated into his tri be.
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 given up on his teenage son and apprenticed him to blacksmith Gobber (Craig Ferguson). Worse, Hiccup knows the village loser hasn't a chance of impressing Astrid (America Ferrera), the girl of his dreams and a formidable dragon fighter in her own right. When one of Hiccup's inventions actually works, he hasn't the heart to kill the young dragon he's brought down. He names it Toothless and befriends it, although he's been taught to fear and loathe dragons. Co-directors and co-writers Chris Sanders and Dean DeBlois, who made Disney's delightful Lilo and Stitch, provide plenty of action, including vertiginous flying sequences, but they balance the pyrotechnics with moments of genuine warmth that make the viewer root for Hiccup's success. Many DreamWorks films get laughs from sitcom one-liners and topical pop culture references; as the humour in Dragon comes from the characters' personalities, it feels less timely and more timeless. Toothless chases the spot of sunlight reflected off Hiccup's hammer like a giant cat with a laser pointer; Hiccup uses his newly found knowledge (and an icky smoked eel) to defeat two small dragons--and impress the other kids. How to Train Your Dragon will be just as enjoyable 10 or 20 years from now as it is today. --Charles Solomon --This text refers to the DVD edition.

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.
The story follows Hiccup who is the chief's son of the Vikings of Berk and who in all appearances is the most un-Viking person you can get. All he wants to do is impress his father who views him as an oddity and doesn't take him seriously but in the process he screws up and almost destroys the village (at the beginning of the movie) which is being attached by dragons. He makes it his mission to catch and kill a dragon but when the moment comes and he is face to face with one he just can't do it. Without realising it he has captured his soon to be best friend and companion.
Through a process of trust exercises he manages to get the dragon, whom he calls Toothless, to trust him and he soon discovers a whole bunch of things that are useful in taming dragons. Enter the plot twist - he must start dragon training with the Vikings, learning various techniques to trap, malee and kill dragons, which obviously makes him torn in two; learning about dragons and impressing his father.
I watched this film when it first came out and fell in love with Toothless, he is a brilliant character and you can genuinely see the friendship grow and develop throughout the film. I decided I had to buy my own copy and settled on the BluRay as it gives a much better picture and audio experience as there are picture details which are much more vivid and noticeable and the sound is much sharper and crisp too.
I would highly recommend this film to anyone, especially for families as this is a great family film which can be enjoyed by anyone.
I love the portrayal of the dragons as intelligent creatures rather than mythical beasts and the subtle humour is always appreciated.
A great film for adults and kids alike
