We hired out How to Train Your Dragon in the weekend after our kids pointed out How to Train Your Dragon 2 would soon be showing on a big screen near you, and here they were the only kids in the world to have not even seen the first one yet, oh the horror lol

I love family movie night, and I really enjoyed this movie. A lot! Basically a Viking chiefs son needs to capture a dragon, as is to be expected in their village to prove his passage into manhood and his worthiness to the tribe. It is based on a children's book by Cressida Cowell. It is a Avatar-meets-HarrPotter adventure that should delight both children and adults. And delight it did.

The visuals are awesome, the script sharp and easy to follow, the scenery breath taking and the battle scenes between man and dragon are amazing. And then there is Toothless, possibly everybody's favorite dragon. This little dragon has an air of mystery about him, and the feelings that his eyes portray is very powerful. The 3d visuals shown in this movie really add to the superb animation and is exhilarating and intriguing to the very end. Yes a very enjoyable movie, and I can't wait to see How to Train Your Dragon 2.

This has to be one of my favourite kids movies ever. Hiccup is a young Viking who doesn't really fit in his village as he is thin, small, clumsy and generally just gets in the way. Every time the village is attacked by dragons he is told to stay inside, out of sight and out of the way. The movie, of course, starts with him ignoring this and trying to help. He ends up causing a lot of damage to his village, he does manage to get a dragon but due to everyone's views of him he is unable to tell them.

Hiccup ends up learning that dragons aren't as bad as they have been raised to believe, but what can you do when the chief is your father and everyone is so set in their ways that there isn't even a chance to try and explain the truth to everyone. While he learns more about the world around him, he also learns more about himself, and figures out how to be true to himself as his own person and not as his world expects him to be.

This really is a great film for the whole family, there are jokes for all ages, there's great moments between father and son and plenty of action. It's a great all rounder of a film and one that will be a firm favourite for years to come.
