By Suzanne A. Marshall  from the August 2014 Edition

Director: Dean DeBois

Starring: Voices of: Jay Baruchel, Cate Blanchett, Gerard Butler, Craig Ferguson, America Ferrera,

“When Hiccup and Toothless discover an 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.”

It’s truly amazing how animation has come into its own these days. This movie was in 3D so in spite of the fairy tale feel of it; you are really ‘in’ the movie. It was quite delightful I must say and having attended with my granddaughter and friend who are 9 years old, it’s difficult not to feel like a kid again. And I love to do that at any opportunity.

The movie has received 4 out of 5 stars or as rated on IMDB 8.4/10 based on 44,000 viewers. Take the kids or go on your own and just escape for a while. It is quite delightful.
