| In this delightful digital 3-D fable, Hiccup (voice of Jay Baruchel), is the wimpy son of a gruff, red-bearded
Viking named Stoick (Gerard Butler). Hiccup's not nearly the son his father was hoping for. His only hope is
to somehow slay a dragon and prove to his father that he is brave and fearless. Since all of the Vikings are afraid of dragons, slaying them is their primary occupation. But Hiccup, despite his dragon-slayer
classes, really doesn't want to kill one.
But, one night when the entire village is under attack from a dreaded dragon which they call The Night Fury, Hiccup's out walking along with his slingshot, and accidently slices off half of the
ferocious creature's tail, making it impossible for him to fly. Finding the gigantic beast nursing its wounds, Hiccup realizes that the dragon is just as afraid of him as he is, so he ends up befriending him. Of course, all of this happens far away from the Viking village, so Hiccup isn't able to get the recognition he
is hoping for, but the two of them become fast friends.
Hiccup names his new friend, "Toothless," and although he seems frightening, he's really quite docile. As their friendship develops, Hiccup feeds his new buddy slimy fish, builds him an artificial tail, and saddles him up and off they go on a thrilling ride, high in the sky.
How to Train Your
Dragon is that rare
animated film that uses 3-D for all of its breathtaking spatial and emotional
possibilities. This movie, co-directed by Dean DeBlois and Chris Sanders ("Lilo and Stitch") was actually shot in 3-D, as some of the more recent 3-D films were not. And it shows. When Hiccup and Toothless take to the sky, the
movie makes you feel in every way like you're flying. And it's a wonderful feeling, one you won't want to miss.
