How To Train Your Dragon

How To Train Your Dragon is an animated film about a boy who does not fit in and how befriending a dragon takes him from zero to hero. The creator and his co-director from Lilo & Stitch successfully bring their sensibility for excluded children and creatures to this film.

Directors Chris Sanders and Dean DeBlois adapted the Cressida Cowell book with the help of DreamWorks Animation. Jay Baruchel and America Ferrara voiced the lead and his love interest. I didn’t care much for their performance. But Gerard Butler and Craig Ferguson both delivered memorable performances as the chief and blacksmith. (While Vikings are not traditionally associated with Scotland, I appreciated the Full Scots Employment Plan.) The animation was superb. The hair and fur on the chief looked incredibly lifelike. John Powell provided an excellent score.

I recommend How To Train Your Dragon to fans of animated movies and family movies alike.
