My How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World Review.


I thought that this was a brilliant film. Sure it isn't as strong as the first or second. But it never looses its heart. I wept into my popcorn bucket. The opening scene was so freaking cool. Excellent Score Cinematography and Direction. A fitting end to a wonderful series which has provided me with so much joy. I'm going to miss these guys. I'm very intrigued to see where DeBlois goes next. A super talented director.

Brilliant film? This is a cartoon for children as with the other two movies produced before. It's not brilliant, it's ''cute'' and for a family audience with young kids. The first movie's success rid on the ''3D movie craze'' of 2010 released just a few months after Avatar with some similarities in the story line which is why a lot of people spent their money on it hoping to have more of an Avatar-esque experience. There was nothing about the first film that stood out to me as anything other than a family cartoon, ''Up'' was a brilliant animated film for its story, this was just basic. I do find ''Toothless'' very cute though.

You've every right to your opinion, but please don't make it sound like your points are facts. They are not. If the OP thinks it was brilliant, then for him/her - it was. I think the first two were brilliant, I've yet to see the third, but from the OPs review, I'm really looking forward to it.

A movie can be aimed at children and still be very well made. An example of this is Stand by Me (1986).

The first Dragons movie suceeded because it had great writing and good visual design, the second ones writing was lacking, but the visual design carried it over, but it seems like they wrapped up the story pretty well here.

UP was great too, that timelapse scene at the beginning was one of the very few times i ever cried watching a movie (and according to IMDB i saw over 2700 of them).
