More Info:
  • Owen Gleiberman

    Rouses you in conventional ways, but it's also the rare animated film that uses 3-D for its breathtaking spatial and emotional possibilities.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    There's much more to the adventure, a deft balance of fantasy and teen angst that never loses its contemporary sense of humor.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Pete Hammond

    An exciting, fun and sensationally entertaining movie for everyone.

    Boxoffice Magazine Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    Seeing "Dragon" in 3-D really is a must. Its formidable realm of Vikings and dragons and nerds (oh my!) should be enjoyed to the fullest extent theaters allow.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    Who would have thought a fire-breathing monster could be one of the most adorable on-screen critters since Babe?

    USA Today Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Can be best categorized as a fantasy adventure. Unlike many animated movies, it's not a musical, nor is it overstuffed with age-appropriate comedy,

    ReelViews Full Review
  • M. E. Russell

    It's charming, funny, exceedingly well-made and features enough comically thrilling flying-lizard mayhem to cause your child's head to lightly explode.

    Portland Oregonian Full Review
  • Keith Phipps

    It’s a great-looking film--and an impressive use of 3D--but ultimately, the story makes it memorable.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Andy Klein

    While almost entirely family-friendly, the film deserves its PG rating: One plot point near the very end would have totally freaked my tender childhood sensibilities.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Bob Mondello

    What gives their story emotional heft has to do with a different kind of dimension: a depth of feeling surrounding the Black Stallion-style bonding of boy and beast.

    NPR Full Review
  • Helen O'Hara

    The start wobbles, but once boy and dragon connect, this becomes a thrilling flight.

    Empire Full Review
  • Betsy Sharkey

    There are times the action lags, and when the dialogue falls back on pop cultural references it feels contrived and forced but, mostly, like the mythical creatures at the heart of this tale, the movie soars.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    The reason it deserves to be seen in a theater with special glasses on, rather than slapped on the DVD player when the children are acting up -- lies in those airborne sequences.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Peter Debruge

    A thrilling drama interspersed with amusing comedic elements (rather than the other way around).

    Variety Full Review
  • Cliff Doerksen

    Witty and satisfying.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Marjorie Baumgarten

    The swarming dragon attacks may truly frighten the littlest viewers, but the depiction of the pleasures of flight and the conquering of one’s fears should make How to Train Your Dragon a perennial delight.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Works enough miracles of 3-D animation to charm your socks off.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    Some movies seem born to inspire video games. All they lack is controllers and a scoring system. How to Train Your Dragon plays more like a game born to inspire a movie.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Rene Rodriguez

    Doesn't have the depth and resonance of a classic, but the picture's modesty is refreshing, and its artistry is awe-inspiring.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    Has two or three booming and intense action sequences that may leave the littlest audience members more quaking than charmed. But the notion of having a pet dragon - just like a pet whale, or a pet lion - is a scenario that should appeal to children of all ages.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Amy Biancolli

    The multiply authored screenplay is based very loosely on Cressida Cowell's popular children's books, but it owes just as much to "E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial" and the John Lennon songbook.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Mike Clark

    A briskly paced computer-animated entertainment that uses the format to maximum effect, the way "Avatar" does.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Tom Russo

    Finds DreamWorks Animation looking to Viking territory for its next Shrek-sturdy comedy tentpole. By Odin, they make it work.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Stephen Cole

    It’s a corny, old fashioned boy-dog love story, as adorable as anything Walt Disney ever signed off on.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    In steering a course between the rock of rude humor and the hard place of perilous drama, How to Train Your Dragon flies high.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Kirk Honeycutt

    A 3D movie that will intrigue kids and adults alike but might play raggedly in both camps.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Joe Neumaier

    Makes the most of its format, soaring when its young hero rides on his winged reptilian pal, and full of heart and heroism even when its action is grounded.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    Baruchel is outstanding, giving Hiccup just the right amount of confidence buried several layers beneath the shame he feels in not continuing the family business. Butler's a head-banger from way back, so he's convincing. And Ferrera gets the grrl-power vibe just right.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    Dreamworks hired the directors of "Lilo & Stitch" to turn Cressida Cowell’s romp of a novel into an animated film and can’t be too surprised that they made, in essence, "Hiccup and Stitch."

    Orlando Sentinel Full Review
  • David Fear

    You could chalk this kid’s flick up as another manic Saturday-matinee time killer if it weren’t for a singularly impressive element. It’s not the stretchy, lava-lamp–ish animation, which offers the usual in-your-face 3-D tricks.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    Beyond its easy-on-the-psyche message, the picture is reasonably pretty to look at. Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    You could say the 3-D animated kidpic How To Train Your Dragon is "Avatar" for simpletons. But that title is already taken, by "Avatar."

  • Ella Taylor

    Adequate but unremarkable animated tale.
