(2014) (voices of Jay Baruchel, Gerard Butler) (PG)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Animated Action: Five years after teaching his fellow Vikings how to live peacefully with dragons, a young man must contend with a villain who wants to control all dragons.
- Five years after convincing his fellow Vikings of the island of Berk that the dragons they once battled are actually intelligent, peaceful animals, 20-year-old Hiccup (voice of JAY BARUCHEL) has grown up into an outstanding young man, no longer an embarrassment to his father, Stoick (voice of GERARD BUTLER), the ruler of Berk. With his former rival, Astrid (voice of AMERICA FERRERA), now his girlfriend, and other fellow former rivals Ruffnut (voice of KRISTEN WIIG), Fishlegs (voice of CHRISTOPHER MINTZ-PLASSE) and Snoutlout (voice of JONAH HILL) his friends, the only thing concerning Hiccup is that his father wants him to become the ruler of their island village.
One day while out riding his rare Night Fury dragon he's named Toothless, Hiccup and Astrid have a run-in with dragon trappers lead by Eret (voice of KIT HARINGTON). The young couple manages to escape, but when they return home and inform Stoick that Eret works for Drago Bludvist (voice of DJIMON HOUNSOU), the Viking ruler sounds the alarm and battens down the village with the help of his right-hand man and longtime friend, Gobber (voice of CRAIG FERGUSON), for they're fully aware of Drago and his past, murderous behavior.
Hiccup and Astrid, however, manage to fly away to try to reason with Drago. Before they get to him, the mysterious dragon rider Valka (voice of CATE BLANCHETT) abducts Hiccup, initially unaware that he's her son who she hasn't seen since he was an infant. She's been living among the dragons, including an alpha one known as the Bewilderbeast, and is all too aware of the dangers that Drago posses to all of them. She, Hiccup, Stoick and the rest of the Vikings must then contend with just that when Drago and his forces decide to attack.
- WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
- If they're fans of the first film, that's a definite yes.
- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG
- For adventure action and some mild rude humor.
