    Plot: The thrilling second chapter of the epic How To Train Your Dragon trilogy brings back the fantastical world of Hiccup and Toothless five years later. While Astrid, Snotlout and the rest of the gang are challenging each other to dragon races (the island's new favorite contact sport), the now inseparable pair journey through the skies, charting unmapped territories and exploring new worlds. When one of their adventures leads to the discovery of a secret ice cave that is home to hundreds of new wild dragons and the mysterious Dragon Rider, the two friends find themselves at the center of a battle to protect the peace.

  2. Me and Miss EilyMiss Eily saw this the other night and it's pretty great. Keeps the same kind of tone from the previous film but a bit darker, it loses some of the sense of wonder from Hiccup and Toothless' bonding in the first film but it has a good few laughs and a couple of emotionally surprising moments, including one that had my hair stand on end.

    Performances wise it's a bit iffy in places, Kit Harrington is pretty bland and Cate Blanchett seems to have an Irish/Scottish accent that veers from one to the other throughout as well for some reason.

    I saw it in 2D and it looked glorious, some of the lighting and textures are stunning looking, not sure what it'd look like in 3D

  3. Not quite as good as the first one but I still loved it
  4. I loved the first one, really great story line, funny throughout but it got me right in the feels as well.

    I didn't even know they had released a second one.
  5. It's a bit darker in places than the first but it's also really funny
  6. Just back from this

    Its good but not great like the first one. It hits all the emotional beats, there some lovely conflicts going on, and the characters have all grown up a little from their first outing.

    Two things stand out for me though.

    1. the music. It really is fantastic and adds a lot to the emotional core of the film. I really can't stress how good the score is, it's magnificent.


    2. the animation. Its gorgeous. There really is some sumptous designs in this film and I love how they've kept up the varied nature of the dragons designs. There's hardly a bit in this film where you just won't enjoy looking at it.
  7. Should I see the first one before watching this?
