My verdict: I really liked this movie. I'm eager to see the sequels (though I'm baffled why the first one isn't coming out until 2014). They adeptly handled the juggling of action, drama, romance, and comedy. The animation is excellent and I thoroughly enjoyed the varieties of dragons with their unique physiologies and abilities. It's funny, though, that Toothless looks a lot like the eponymous alien of Disney's Lilo & Stitch. My only real complaint is the voice actor for Hiccup, Jay Baruchel. Besides my previous complaints about him , he just sounded to old for the character. It was even more disconcerting than having Jesse Eisenberg voice the parrot on Rio.
 Perhaps because it's by the same directors: Chris Sanders and Dean DeBlois.
