Sequels are often not as good as the original and, to some extent, that is the case with How To Train Your Dragon 2. However, that doesn’t mean Director Dean DeBlois’ film is not good. It’s just not as good as the first film because it’s not as joyful. Darken forces are at foot and that brings in a happy surprise, but also, a sad event, as well.
If you like dragons….and I do…, you will enjoy the variety of flying animals and the coming-of-age of both Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) and his flying friend Toothless, plus the animation is fabulous.
I give How To Train Your Dragon 2 a 4 out of 5.
