I just finished watching How To Train Your Dragon and the accompanying DVD Legend Of The BoneKnapper Dragon. Let me tell you, if you get a chance to see them you are in for a wild ride that you will want to ride again and again. I laughed, I cried, at times I was on the edge of my seat in suspense. This film has it all and you are sure to be entertained. Even better it is a movie that the whole family can watch together. If you do watch it with your family you won’t have to worry about them seeing you cry because they will be crying right along with you.
Tear of joy, tears of sadness and an ending that will have your heart singing for joy. The whole story is about this little speck of an island in the north that is constantly beset by dragons raiding their livestock. Everyone wants to be a dragon slayer, they train for it night and day to become one. In the village there is one boy who wants to be one as well but he has the mind of an inventor and with one of his inventions trying to prove that he can kill dragons his way. The thing is, what he made actually works and he was able to bring down the one dragon that everyone feared. There was only one problem, he just couldn’t bring himself to kill it. That is where the real story begins.
The film is about how one is able to better themselves if they just trust in who they are and how you can make friends with anyone if you are willing to try. I know that might sound a bit sappy, but its true and works really well for this film. If you haven’t seen the film I am not going to spoil it for you. Instead I am telling you that you will love this film no matter who you are. If you like action, it has it. If you like CG, it has it. If you like drama, it has that too. It even has romance and comedy. You just can’t go wrong with this film unless you just don’t like to feel good about yourself.
How To Train Your Dragon is just one of the better if not the best films of the year so far so go and see it for yourself. You will fell good about yourself and want to watch it over and over if you do.
One gripe and it is not about the film. Wal-mart in Chipley, you suck for not offering the disks on Blu-Ray. Get a clue, will ya!
