Toothless Rides Again
How to Train Your Dragon 2
Review by Ross Anthony

A cartoon that will make your eyes well up with tears. Maybe I'm just a sensitive soul, but there's a scene in here that had me and my girlfriend all choked up. Kudos to the writers, illustrators, directors, and editors who cobbled that sweet scene with heart-gripping emotion. But, it's not all about that one scene. This is a wonderfully fun movie; in fact, the whole series breathes fire. Clever, fun, artfully crafted.

Here's one of the many lines that cracked me up. "Hey Drago Bludvist! I'm gonna bloody your fist with my face!"

My only gripe is something that I can't mention without spoiling -- so I won't.
