Hiccup and Toothless are back! Though not as sweet as its predecessor, it is tastier in a different way! How to Train Your Dragon 2 is, in a sense, way stronger than the first movie because of the depths given to its many characters, the introduction of many more varieties of dragons, a fast-paced storyline, and an inspiring ending.
How to Train Your Dragon 2 Review
The movie is set 5 years after the brainy young Viking lad, Hiccup, befriended the most feared dragon, Toothless, a Night Fury. Now, Brek has become a dragon-friendly place, where everyone seem to have at least 1 dragon and everything is done to ensure a perfect co-existence between humans and dragons.
Hiccup’s success has further strengthened Stoick’s hopes of making him a successor as Chieftain. But as usual, Hiccup disagreed with his father as he was reluctant to trade his freedom with the responsibility of protecting his people and leading them. However, when they were attacked by a ruthless killer and dragon master, Drogo, Hiccup had to muster his courage and face up to his destiny. In the process, Hiccup will discover more about his gifts and his past.
Voiced by the same casts as before Jay Baruchel (Hiccup), Gerard Butler (Stoick), America Ferrera (Astrid), Christopher Mintz-Plasse (Fishlegs), Jonah Hill (Snotlout), Kristen Wiig and T.J. Miller (twins Ruffnut and Tuffnut) and Craig Ferguson (Gobber), the team is joined by new members, Cate Blachett (Valka), Kit Harington (Eret) and Djimon Hounsou (Drago).
This is one movie since quite a long time, that made me want to clap my hands in applause when it ended. I was so moved. The kids love it, too.
