Hiccup (voice by Jay Baruchel) is a failure as a Viking: skinny, inquisitive, and inventive, he asks questions and tries out unsuccessful contraptions when he's supposed to be fighting the dragons that attack his village. His father, chief Stoick the Vast (Gerard Butler), has pretty much given up on his teenage son and apprenticed him to blacksmith Gobber (Craig Ferguson). Worse, Hiccup knows the village loser hasn't a chance of impressing Astrid (America Ferrera), the girl of his dreams and a formidable dragon fighter in her own right. When one of Hiccup's inventions actually works, he hasn't the heart to kill the young dragon he's brought down. He names it Toothless and befriends it, although he's been taught to fear and loathe dragons...

This film makes me want to go out and get my very own dragon. Although I'm all grown up now, i still like to live like a kid now and then. This is a great family fun film, just very likeable, lovable characters and I'm sure that everyone will have their favourite. What can I say that won't give the plot away? Err, Vikings, Cute and not so cute Dragons, obligatory but not nauseating love interest, geeky hero and lots of action. This is a well made and very high quality piece of animation. Good Subtitles for those with hearing loss. All in a fun film that if you like cartoons with amore grown up edge to them, I can highly recommend.
