Movie Info & Cast

Synopsis

Set in the mythical world of burly Vikings and wild dragons, and based on the book by Cressida Cowell, this action comedy tells the story of Hiccup, a Viking teenager who doesn't exactly fit in with his tribe's longstanding tradition of heroic dragon slayers. Hiccup's world is turned upside down when he encounters a dragon that challenges him and his fellow Vikings to see the world from an entirely different point of view.

What made me love this movie is the fact it didn't stick to the usual everyone will be okay type feel. I love that it show realistic situations. It sucks what happened to the kid but it shows him in a positive way and reminds you there are other kids out there the same way.

A 3D movie that will intrigue kids and adults alike but might play raggedly in both camps.

What gives their story emotional heft has to do with a different kind of dimension: a depth of feeling surrounding the Black Stallion-style bonding of boy and beast.

Seeing Dragon in 3-D really is a must. Its formidable realm of Vikings and dragons and nerds (oh my!) should be enjoyed to the fullest extent theaters allow.
