How To Train Your Dragon 2 is arguably one of the most important modern animated films. Simply put, the film is freaking gorgeous. Without a doubt, Dreamworks has finally given Pixar a run for their money. Details like wisps of cloud or individual scales on Toothless give the movie a sense of being larger than life and yet still realistic.
I was a character animator on this film and so, yeah, I might be a bit biased in this review. In the past, Dreamworks has struggled with what many consider the most important part of any film—its heart. Readers of this site and those familiar with the Dramatica theory of story will know that the heart of every story is represented by a relationship.
In previous films, DW often sacrifices this relationship for pop-culture references and irreverent comedy.
There is the Fun and Games section where Hiccup and his fellow viking teens learn all they can about how to survive and triumph over deadly dragons Note too that these are all the moments that ended up in the trailer —just like Blake predicted!
If there is one complaint about the story, it could be that there is too much heart. So much time is spent developing the relationship with Toothless, that there is little screen-time left to explain the Antagonist and the problem everyone is really dealing with. It happens so quickly and is painted with such a broad brush that there is little time to explore it with the kind of subtly and nuance that the relationship throughlines receive.
But in the end, audiences want their hearts filled.
