Movie Review by Martin
July 25th, 2014

Seems everything has to get a sequel these days. Especially if its animated. "How to train your dragon" was a surprise hit a few years back so of course a second one would follow suit. As good as it is though, "How to train your dragon 2" plays it safe, by giving its audience more of what we saw last time. Though its just different enough to be a worthy follow-up. If not quite as memorable as number 1.

Like the original, "How to train your dragon 2" has amazing special effects, imaginative action, and a heartfelt story. Its a lot soppier than the first flick, so you should maybe bare that in mind if your going in expecting a funny cartoon. I wasn't expecting a lot of jokes this time I guess. After all, the first film was more about its story, and heart. Though its still 2 steps from greatness, because it isn't quite as inventive, or as ambitious as the first. Nor does take some of its great ideas just that little bit far enough.

There's a much needed villain thrown into the mix, who really adds a new element to the movie, which also has some twists and turns that will at least surprise the kids at which its aimed. While us adults can still awe at the animation, which is still beautiful.
