Critics reviews

Returning director Dean DeBlois could have been forgiven for playing it safe with this potentially tricky trilogy midpoint. Instead he ups the ante and takes some big risks along the way, introducing several major new characters and significantly expanding the dragon mythos while retaining the air of mystery that made the original so captivating. These are mostly calculated risks, but risks nonetheless, and it’s testament to DeBlois’ strength in conviction that nearly every one of them pays off.

DeBlois has compared this second film to The Empire Strikes Back… But a more appropriate comparison point might be Avatar… [in that] Dragon 2 uses speed, fluidity, and the depth of 3-D to give us skies full of fighting, diverse creatures as far as the eye can see, as we sweep in and out of clouds, across the surfaces of oceans, and over and around dramatic cliffs. It’s a visually impressive ride, but somewhat underwhelming as drama; you may feel like you’ve been in these battles before.

Even though the boy-pet bonding between gawky Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) and his stealth but goofy sidekick Toothless (Randy Thom) remains as earnest as you please, the simple alchemy of their unlikely union ends up lost amid the needlessly complicated agendas fuelling what is now a fledgling franchise.
