How To Train Your Dragon 2 is the sequel to the highly successful, How To Train Your Dragon – a tale of a human boy and his loyal pet. Some thickheaded Norsemen never seem to get along with their fire-breathing dragons, residing in Berk. Hiccup and Toothless are not those however, because they are practically inseparable as mates, but things are rather lukewarm inbetween Hiccup and his father, Stoick. There is a motley crew on board, but the storyline is still persistent because it moves the whole tale forward from a moment in time, which is what you really think of, when you think of animated sequels.
In this movie, you meet Valka, Hiccup’s mother who comes up to Berk after disappearing years ago, abandoning the family in the process, and choosing to live with flying lizards,
instead, peacefully. One character in the movie states,
”Good dragons under
the control of bad people do bad things.”
So the moral of the story here, is that even if you are a stowaway, there is still hope for you. By why would you be a stowaway? Because when Draco Bludvist is in want of serious blood, there is very little you can do but become a stowaway – Bludvist is a banal, cartoon, evil, who wears a dragon-skin cape, and has a jaunty snarl. You have to watch
the entire film, to witness the rest of the story but you can expect plenty of fire, water, and candy-green ice moving seamlessly in the storyline – it’s fantabously delicious!
Film rating: 8/10.
