How to Train Your Dragon (2010) Film Review

How to Train Your Dragon

Hiccup is not like all the other Vikings. They are brave and strong and big. He’s small, but wants to be a part of killing the dragons as much as the next kid, and has an invention that could work. Unfortunately, when it takes down one of the never-seen species, it causes a lot of damage and he is shunned. When he finds the injured dragon, he quickly realises that he can train it, and starts to learn a lot more about dragons that anyone previously This knowledge helps him during his dragon killing class, and may change things for his town forever.

Fun. Very nice to look at. A very male-centric film – why are there two girls in the six member killing dragon class and yet almost no other female characters as all? Sheesh. No wonder Brave got so much of an exciting reaction. There’s a sequel coming out this year. Hope I can borrow some children and see it at the cinema.

How to Train Your Dragon was nominated for Oscars for Best Animated Feature Film of the Year and Best Achievement in Music Written for Motion Pictures, Original Score.
