Movie Review: How to Train your Dragon 2

Since I was under the weather for the last couple of days because I was really sick and was even rushed to the Emergency room. I was tasked by the Doctor to stay at home and get some rest for me to regain my strength and recuperate so when I get back to work  I will be up and ready to face another day.

So after waking up from my deep slumber for almost half the day and loading up on my medicines, vitamins and liquids. I wanted to while away the time and entertain myself so I decided to watch one of the many movies in my laptop which I haven’t attended to as of late.

I started watching How to train your Dragon part one way way back before in 2010 upon it’s release and I was really enthused throughout the whole course of the movie. The screenplay, animation and the witty retorts from the parties were a surefire way to keep me hooked during the whole 2 hours of the movie.

P and I  started watching it last night before sleep eventually got the best of my senses and then I decided to continue watching it now.  For those who didn’t get the chance to catch a glimpse of this awesome follow up to it’s predecessor “How to train your Dragon 1” Here’s the trailer of the movie. 😀 Happy viewing! 😀

 “How to Train Your Dragon 2” has a very mature and rich plot filled with emotional and dramatic depth. Berk has  dramatically changed and you can clearly notice how the lives of everyone on the island has become better.

The film also tackles darker subject matters like remorse, forgiveness, and redemption, while at the same time touching on themes of love and loss. The screenplay is filled with moments that would surely touch your heartstrings and showcase the deep bond between Hiccup and Toothless despite some tragedies faced by this dynamic duo along the way.

This is an epic 3-D adventure with dazzling visuals and gripping action sequences that will appeal to even older kids and teens. See the definitive battles between the different groups of dragons and several close calls for the story’s protagonists. Romance also plays a significant part in this story between Hiccup’s parents and between him and Astrid.

This is a must see movie for the kids and the young at heart out there since there’s a lot of tribute given to its strong female characters, touching parent-child relationships, and positive messages about the bond between people and their animal companions.
