THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHide
[Highly rated reviewer]this film stars the voice talents of Jay Baruchel as Hiccup Horrendous Haddock the Third, America Ferrera as Astrid, Jonah Hill as Snotface Snotlout, Gerard Butler as Stoick the Vast, Christopher Mintz-Plasse as Fishlegs and Craig Ferguson as Gobber the Belch.
How To Train Your Dragon is set in a mythical world of vikings and dragons.
The story centres around a viking teenager named Hiccup (voiced by Jay Baruchel), who lives on the island of Berk, where fighting dragons is a way of life.
The teens smarts and offbeat sense of humour is disliked by his tribe and its chief Stoick the Vast who is Hiccups father. However, when Hiccup is included in Dragon Training with the other viking teens, he sees his chance to prove he has what it takes to be a fighter.
After he entangles a dragon with a bolas-shooting cannon, Hiccup releases and ends up befriending the dragon.
This relationship flips his world upside down as he strives to convince his tribe that they do not need to be dragon-slayers.
Well worth watching !

great for all agesBy a customer , 10 Oct 2012Great for kids, mums, dads, aunites, uncles, etc., in equal measure. The whole family (no matter what age) thoroughly enjoyed this movie. As with most kids movies these days there are plenty of laughs for all ages.
a few reasons to watch this movieBy friendlyfilmfan (43 reviews) , 27 Sep 2012This movie is funny, sweet, has many important lessons such as acceptance of who you are and not judging others. It also follows on nicely from the recent success of the Paralympic games so if you have kids that you think need the lessons learnt about superhumans to be reinforced, rent this movie.
The minor issue with the accents (all the grown ups are Scottish all the kids are from the USA) has hardly any impact on your viewing, its actually nice to hear the blend.
The animation too is superb, the dragons are well animated and when in flight they are beautiful.
This film is definitely worth a watch, it is often laugh out loud funny and the characters are engaging, you will fall for Hiccup and Toothless, I guarantee.
A film everyone can enjoyBy Abby88 (170 reviews) from Bognor Regis , 05 Sep 2012This is a fun story about a boy who doesn't fit in. There are a lot of very funny moments along with touching moments. Highly recommended!
