Puberty did well in How to Train Your Dragon 2 particularly to Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III and Astrid Hofferson, such gorgeous couple. *Puppy Eyes* But that is not why I’m writing about a movie this time. This won’t be another lacklustre movie review to bore but this is now officially my favorite computer-animated action-fantasy movie. Dreamworks proved their incredible feat once again, ‘braver than Brave, more fantastic than Frozen and far from Madagascar’.
ONE. It’s a Dreamworks tear-jerker.
I have always believed that if a movie could prickle my tear ducts, that is a commendable one. Like the attraction-lust-attachment-course of love, the movie will get you on the mood of having faith of knowing what you really want and tailing on the shadows of your dreams. Hiccup has fashioned amazing mechanical devices in pursuit of discovering unexplored territories aside from Berk where his father, Stoick the Vast, lives as the Chieftain. And when his father died ‘indirectly’ because of Toothless the adorable Night Fury being controlled by the Bewilderbeast of Drago, my heart cried. The death was heart-breaking. Rotten Tomatoes has given the film a ‘certified fresh’ score of 93% based on reviews from 113 critics, very high score coming from a famous movie review aggregator on the web.
TWO. Ruffnut Thorston and the Alpha.
Astrid is a reassuring hot girlfriend. Valka, Gobber, Snotlout, Fishlegs, Ruffnut and Tuffnut remained to be the fun gang of Hiccup and added color to the film. An array of characters has made this sequel more remarkably interesting to wit next the sleepy dragon, Drago Bludvist, the unreasonable madman and notably, Ruffnut Thorston and the regal Alpha Dragon.
Ruffnut Thorston, the twin sister of Tuffnut, displayed high and forthright flirting skills with Eret,a dragon trapper who blamed Hiccup and his group for the damage of his fortress. Everytime Eret flexes his muscles or shows vigour during dragonfights, Ruffnut acts to be like a ravishing hungry Russian entertainer drooling over a sexy old millionaire. And it’s a real killer move, a very funny one.
The Alpha Dragon being taken care of Hiccup’s mother for years was one majestic creature and character in the story. With its mainly white aesthetic features and colossal body, I was just jaw-dropped that I wanted to have one or perhaps just in a form of a tattoo or a toy if its out in the market. It proved that love can break even the long been insuperable force of nature.
THREE. The Hiccup-Toothless Invincible Love Story.
Hiccup has proven once again that having a good stance at your principle and believing in it shall do you no wrong, well not at the end of it. Not even an ugly Drago Bludvist on the way.
Like a kid, I prayed for whoever Gods were there at the Cinema 8 of SM City that Toothless shall awake from the coercion of Drago’s Bewilderbeast. And when it did, I felt like I got another bucket of popcorn and three pieces of KFC Spicy chicken free of charge. Stormfly, Hookfang, Meatlug, Barf and Belch, Cloudjumper, Grump and Skullcrusher were also succumbed but I did not mind them that even when I felt depressed of the Stoick’s honourable death I still managed to believe in the strong relationship of Hiccup and Toothless. When Toothless snapped out of the Bewilderbeast control, I literally clapped my feet against the seat in front of me. The wonderful friendship also led Hiccup to his mother and he finally realized what he has been searching for.
Given all the amazing twist and turns of the story with effects that are fascinating, it still is glued to the title How to Train Your Dragon. I just wish Dean DeBlois shall direct How to Train Your Dragon 3 and finish earlier than June 17, 2016 in the loving memory of Stoick the Vast. Like Hiccup, let us all become a man and treat our friends who will watch with us!
