Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: It's a foolproof scheme for picture making: take the plot elements of favorite movies, paint the concoction with bright colors so it looks like the zazziest customized car, set it running at NASCAR speed, and you have How to Train Your Dragon. – Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine, Dec 8, 2014

Fresh: Toothless has the one precious ingredient that's missing from so many of Hollywood's contemporary animated characters: an air of mystery. – Stephanie Zacharek,, Nov 19, 2013

Fresh: Smartly dispensing with the usual hubbub of pop references that dot many of these films, the movie offers touching, quiet moments and imaginative, high-flying beauty. It's fantastically entertaining. – Bruce Diones, New Yorker, Nov 19, 2013

Fresh: Technically proficient and featuring a witty, intelligent, surprisingly insightful script, How to Train Your Dragon comes close to the level of Pixar's recent output while easily exceeding the juvenilia Dreamworks has released in the last nine years. – James Berardinelli, ReelViews, Sep 6, 2011

I was wrong...

I'm 21, and work in the auto industry, consider that when I write about this movie.

Thought this was going to be some other "shrek" or kids movie. Figured I would watch it for the hell of it. I mean it was a flat 5/5 starts on ratings. Have never seen that before, and the highest "tomato" score I have ever seen of 98%

So here I am, watching this movie 4 years after it came out. Boy was I wrong.

It's perfect. Nothing is better. The story is flawless. The animation is perfect. The soundtrack made my eyes water with the perfection of it's composition with the picture.
Where have I been?

Quite Simply, The Best.



I remember when this movie came out and I saw it in theaters. I left the theater being surprised at how much I enjoyed the movie. The main character is the usual outcast but he's smart and witty, the love interest is tough, the father didn't really grow on me but he's ok in the end, and the jokes are really funny. The final battle and ending is awesome! I'd say go and watch it.
