SYNOPSIS/PLOT Long ago up North on the Island of Berk, the young Viking, Hiccup, wants to join his town's fight against the dragons that continually raid their town. However, his macho father and village leader, Stoik the Vast, will not allow his small, clumsy, but inventive son to do so. Regardless, Hiccup ventures out into battle and downs a mysterious Night Fury dragon with his invention, but can't bring himself to kill it. Instead, Hiccup and the dragon, whom he dubs Toothless, begin a friendship that would open up both their worlds as the observant boy learns that his people have misjudged the species. But even as the two each take flight in their own way, they find that they must fight the destructive ignorance plaguing their world.
PRO REVIEWS ----------------------------------------
"A lively though disjointed 3D cartoon that never quite entices an audience to invest emotionally in its fantasy world" (Kirk Honeycutt: The Hollywood Reporter)
"Some movies seem born to inspire video games. 'How to Train Your Dragon' plays more like a game born to inspire a movie (...) Rating: *** (out of four)" (Roger Ebert: Chicago Sun-Times)
"Kid stuff? Maybe. But 'How to Train Your Dragon' works enough miracles of 3-D animation to charm your socks off (...) Rating: *** (out of four)" (Peter Travers: Rolling Stone)
"'How to Train Your Dragon' rouses you in conventional ways, but it's also the rare animated film that uses 3-D for its breathtaking spatial and emotional possibilities" (Owen Gleiberman: Entertainment Weekly)
