Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Animated Action Adventure - Like the first film, this is an animated fantasy action adventure, but there isn't quite as much quirky humor as in the first film. There are a lot more monsters in this film, and that and a character death may be too intense and/or upsetting to young children.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Very Good What truly sets this animated franchise apart from countless others is how it wears its heart openly and honestly atop its armor.

USA Today Full Review
Good A striking visual spectacle, Dragon 2 charmingly explores the relationship between humans and animals, and is especially poignant when viewed in the context of animal rescue.

Entertainment Weekly Full Review
Good While the original movie benefited from narrative simplicity and an admirable lack of villains, this one paints the screen with too many characters and frequent diversions from the main story,...

NY Post Full Review
Good 'Dragon 2' really soars when our hero is aloft, imparting some important lessons about family, ecology and war for young audiences.

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Unfortunately, we were unable to collect very many reviews for this movie. The few that we did collect were very high. My wife and I, and two of our grandkids, all enjoyed it very much. It's clearly a great second installment in the "How to Train your Dragon" story.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Five years have passed since the heroic young Viking Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) befriended an injured dragon and forever changed the way the residents of Berk interact with the fire-breathers. Now, Vikings and dragons live side-by-side in peace on the fantastical isle that has been transformed into a dragon's paradise.

But when grown-up responsibilities loom on the horizon, Hiccup and his faithful dragon Toothless take to the skies in search of answers. It's much more than he bargained for, though, when Hiccup discovers that a mysterious dragon rider is really his long-lost mother Valka (Academy Award-winning actress Cate Blanchett) and that the peace between dragons and Vikings is threatened by the power-hungry Drago (Academy Award-nominated actor Djimon Hounsou) with help from the dragon trapper Eret, son of Eret ("Game of Thrones" actor Kit Harington).

As Astrid (America Ferrera), Gobber (Craig Ferguson) and Viking friends Snotlout (Jonah Hill), Fishlegs (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) and twins Ruffnut (Kristen Wiig) and Tuffnut (T.J. Miller), lend their support, Hiccup, his mother and tribal chief father Stoick the Vast (Gerard Butler), must work together to protect the dragons they have grown to love. In the process, Hiccup finds the answers he has been looking for in ways he could never have imagined.
