Berk in the saddle...

Five years on from HTTYD’s finale, and it’s all change in the small viking village of Berk. Not only are the dragons now fully assimilated into the horn-hatted locals’ way of life (a change and span of time documented over in Cartoon Network’s TV spin-off Dragons: Riders Of Berk), but its people are older, wiser, and far more adventurous. With the dragons and Vikings now successfully transitioned from enemies to the-not-as-weird-as-it-sounds life partners, Hiccup (voiced by Jay Baruchel) and his trusty dragon bestie Toothless are on a mission to explore the wider world at their finger/wing-tips.

As their geographical horizons broaden, so do the dangers, and it’s not long before an entirely new dragon dynamic comes into play. First up is the introduction of handsome bad boy Eret (Kit Harington) and his dragon-trapping gang of roughnecks who are all too keen to snag Toothless and his fellow fliers. More worrying is the nefarious, unsettling Big Bad behind the operation, the legendarily ruthless Drago Bludvist (Djimon Hounsou), who’s amassing a dragon army that could grant him the power he needs to rule over all.

All of the impressive effects of the original with none of the humour or snappy dialogue that made it entertaining. A generic good versus evil plot and a tedious back story involving Hiccup's mother that, as my 7 year old son said, is a bit boring.

This film in one word is amazing with amazing 3d i just love the flight sequences and the story is just as good as the first film if not better but i will say this the villain could be better but that didn't bother me because this film is amazing.

I've anticipated this film for a long time and have watched any footage I could get my eyes on. It concerned me that maybe i'd seen too much and that I may have made it a little predictable but I was wrong. Also the animation it breathtaking!
