Brief Synopsis – Hiccup must find a hidden world where Toothless and the other dragons can go before they are captured by a ruthless dragon hunter.
My Take on it – I enjoyed both of the previous two films in this series and wasn’t adverse to seeing where they could take the story for the third part.
They do a nice job with the final chapter of the trilogy (so far) and find a way to keep things interesting and intriguing the whole way through.
The story has lost of action, adventure and even some humor to help the plot move forward at a nice pace while also keeping things fun throughout.
The animation is wondrous to look at and there were numerous times along the way that I was so entranced by the visuals that I’d forget that I’m watching an animated film.
The voice cast of this film is once again great and the fact that they were able to bring back almost the entire voice cast once again is great.
F. Murray Abraham is a nice addition to the story as the villain because he is able to find a way to keep his character mischievous and intriguing while not falling into the trap of resorting to be a stereotypical villain.
I hope this is the final chapter of the story because any more will feel too much like they are tacked on instead of part of the ongoing storyline.
Bottom Line – Interesting addition to the series. They do a nice job keeping things interesting throughout and fill the story with lots of action, adventure and enough humor to remain fun throughout. The animation is amazing to look at and there were many scenes where I kept forgetting that I’m watching an animated movie. The voice cast is quite enjoyable and it’s great that most of the original voice cast from the previous films return. Abraham is a great addition as the villain who doesn’t feel too stereotypical in everything he does. Recommended!
