“I will not kill him because he is afraid of me. I looked at him, I looked at myself.
If everyone looked the same before choosing each other, the world would be a better place. But one can always dream of such a future, especially when that vision is supported by spectacular scenery and enchanting story. The acclaimed animated feature of the dialogue above comes from How to Train Your Dragon and the main character is first spoken by Hickup while explaining to his tribe why his community could not kill the dragon as expected. The hiccups, like the hero of the other underdog story, fit incorrectly in the template method. He was thin, frightened, and most Vikings could not do things like kill dragons naturally.
Helm by Chris Saunders and Dean Debloys, screenplay by Will Davis and Directors This feature is based on the book of the same name by Cressida Cowell. Runs in 98 minutes, How to Train Your Dragon is the fairy tale of a Viking teenager who goes against his traditions and befriends someone instead of killing the dragon. The bond shared by Night Fury (Dragon) and Hiccups (voiced by the wonderful Jay Baruch) is unique in that they traveled together to break stereotypes and help hiccup people against some powerful enemies. The script is solid, the dialogues draw emotions and the voice acting is supreme. The presence of talented actors like Jonah Hill, America Ferreira, Gerard Butler, Kristen Wigg, David Tennott on board definitely helped.
In general, animation is intended for children, as read by comics scholars and fairy tales for little girls. Those two most prevalent beliefs are wrong. Everything that has a meaning and spirit for engagement and to connect with people can be utilized by anyone in any age bracket. And How to Train Your Dragon is a movie that will impress you no matter how old or young you are, mainly the themes it speaks of are things our little ones need to know more and adults need to remember. The main theme is kinship, and you can find anyone, in this case, even with the deadly dragon! The narrative is simple, but fascinating and the camera work is just as delicate, if not more, along with those scenes. This is not surprising since the cinematography consultant here is the esteemed Roger Dickens.

The vibrant colors and landscape of the Viking village of Berk are stunning. CGI is pretty done, leaving you feeling helpless and irreversible for that world. Night Fury aka Toothless Pull-Its-Checks is adorable. All in all, it’s a stand-up job for the team that earned them two Oscar nominations that year – for Best Animated Feature and Best Original Score (John Powell’s well done). And as the nominations matched, How to Train Your Dragon also grossed over $ 500 million at the box office and became a smasher.
