Movie: How to Train Your Dragon
So if you follow my blog, you know that last week I did a review on The Sorcerer's Apprentice. It turns out, the same character that played the apprentice(I haven't looked up his name) also plays the lead in this movie.
MyTake: Hiccup (awful name, he knows) is of Viking decent and his father (Played by the wonderful Gerard Butler) is not proud of him because he cannot slay a dragon and whenever he tries, it always ends in disaster.
The Review: It was absolutely enjoyable. Though I felt that the main character's voice was a bit old for the part, he still gave that awkward adolescent voice that fit well with the part. The Night Fury he saved (one of the more vicious dragons) was absolutely adorable. He or it acted like a little puppy rather than a fearsome dragon. I think Hiccup named him toothless (as I said, they're bad with names). In a village where their name book says to kill all dragons on sight, it wasn't a good idea for him to befriend a dragon.
I don't want to give the movie away so I can't say much more, but it's great for children and adults alike.
