Plot:

A hapless young Viking who aspires to hunt dragons becomes the unlikely friend of a young dragon himself, and learns there may be more to the creatures than he assumed.

Review:

Vikings fighting dragons, this sounds really cool, but for whatever reason I just could not get into it. I liked the idea, but I just couldn’t get into this kids movie lol.

A boy Viking can’t bring himself to kill the dragons, ends up befriending them, and saves them all in the end.

I thought it was cool that he lost his foot in the end. I also liked that there were female Vikings fighting. Other than that, don’t really have much to say.

Review:

I was lucky enough to be able to see this movie in theaters, but I was pregnant at the time and my hormones really messed with my perception of a lot of things. After a re-watch I believe I might like this more than I originally did.

Yes the scenes where Hit Girl is trying to figure out who she is are annoying, but then without those scenes I wouldn’t get the scene were those girls vomited and shit all over the place, and that was pretty damn funny.

It was also really violent, and while most of the time I don’t mind that, with this movie there were times I had to look away. Not sure why and I don’t feel like analyzing it at this moment to figure it out.

Overall I liked the story and the movie. I do find it funny that Jim Carey starred in this and then spoke out against gun violence. What a dick.

4/5
