How To Train Your Dragon 2

The new product from Dream Works, How To Train Your Dragon 2 is indeed an entertaining package that will surely please the fans of the franchise. The humour was always there in the content and with more exploitation of the dragon training thing, the film guarantees a fun filled 107 minutes.

With Hiccup changing the minds of his fellow people about dragons, Berk is a great place to live now. With the arrival of dragons, people started to explore world beyond Berk to know about other lands. On one such a ride Hiccup finds out the fact that a man called Drago Bludvist is on a mission to capture all the dragons so that he could control the world. He also gets a chance to see his mother who is now living far away from Berk taking care of a lot of dragons. Bludvist’s attempt to capture all the dragons and hiccup’s effort to save them along with his family, friends and countrymen is what How to train your dragon 2 narrating.

In both films the writers have managed to include humour in a very delightful way. The bonding of Hiccup and Toothless is stronger now and the kind of pet-master attachment gives scope for a whole lot of witty moments and dialogues, and they have used it really well to make things entertaining. The new world Hiccup sees after joining his mom is also a refreshing one which shows us this giant alpha thing. The place where the film actually showed some hiccup was in that phase when a hypnotized toothless attacked Hiccup and some tragic things happen which I haven’t seen in many animated films as they all focus on the “everything is fine” philosophy. But the film manages to come out of that moody zone and concludes on a happy knot.

The making is pretty good as it barely loses the excitement and acceleration. Fun things happening in the background of a main conversation is a delight to watch. Screenplay has created a smart new outer world that has appealing characters. Awesome animation from the guys in that department. All those dragon flying sessions were conceived brilliantly. Engaging background score increases the excitement.

How to train your dragon 2 is a very good package of fun, excitement, thrill, love and sentiments. It would have been a total winner if they could have done something better with that pre climax melodrama. My rating is 3.5/5 for How to train your dragon 2. A sure shot entertainer bud.
