How to Train Your Dragon 2 Overview

The thrilling second chapter of the epic How To Train Your Dragon trilogy brings back the fantastical world of Hiccup and Toothless five years later. While Astrid, Snotlout and the rest of the gang are challenging each other to dragon races (the island's new favorite contact sport), the now inseparable pair journey through the skies, charting unmapped territories and exploring new worlds. When one of their adventures leads to the discovery of a secret ice cave that is home to hundreds of new wild dragons and the mysterious Dragon Rider, the two friends find themselves at the center of a battle to protect the peace.

Review for How to Train Your Dragon 2

Author: Andres Gomez

The first one was good and the second is not any worse. This series is standing out of the pack for its complex plot involving several topics, not just the typical ones in an animated movie. Arguably, they have been also treated in former movies; two main characters which are crippled (Finding Nemo ...), greater involvement of strong female roles (although, still, not as main characters and utterly in need of help from the male roles), ecology, etc. The points I dislike the most is the speech of homeland being the good "peacekeeper" nation forced to use violence to keep it (peace). Quite hypocritical but, clearly, addressed to the US audience. The repetitive line of story about the (nerd) hero who is the only one to save the world is quite tiresome too. Finally, how lightly some other traumatic causing topics are treated: finding that a parent abandoned their child, death, etc ... In any case, this is a good movie, funny and with an interesting story. Worth watching for a franchise that, I think, doesn't have all the attention it should have.
