5.0 out of 5 starsI love this movie
Verified purchase
I love this movie. I remember when it came out and my baby brother begged me to take him and his friend to see it. I had my doubts based on the marketing for it, and went in expecting standard kids fare. I'm so glad I was wrong. I loved this movie! It really is one of the greatest movies of all time, and not just kids movies. It is beautifully animated, with an amazing soundtrack by John Powell (and really if you're still skeptical, it's worth watching just for that). It's a movie that's loved by my parents and younger siblings no matter how many times we watch it

5.0 out of 5 starsOne of my Favorite Stories Ever
Verified purchase
I have seen this at least six times. I will likely watch it several more times. Every time I watch it, I see something new that I hadn’t noticed before. I never feel the need to skip parts, either. There is a wealth of activity going on within the village island, along with village chatter which is highly entertaining. (Try turning on the subtitles to catch more going on around the main characters.)

The story is of Hiccup, the smallest, most intellectual, and most unappreciated teen in the whole tribe, taking his place in the world of his people, and with a newly elevated stature.

The characters are well played by the actors, and that includes their full animations. The story is fabulous, and Hiccup makes a mildly stoic yet ironic underdog protagonist who has communication issues with his great Viking father. But when Hiccup is catapulted into a wild adventure with a dragon, he leads his Viking villagers into new paths no one had ever imagined before.

Hiccup and Toothless learn from each other and become fast friends. Toothless is one of my favorite characters ever. Perhaps it is because Toothless reminds me so much of a lithe graceful animal, half cat and half dog, who is part cosmic clown of cuteness and yet a fierce and lethal beast. To Hiccup, he becomes a loyal companion as they begin to rely on each other.

If you haven't see this, please consider it. It's charming and yet fiercely Norse. And though I haven't yet seen the third of this series, the second is wonderful as well. I'm an adult, and yet my favorite movies are often animated features. I find the charm of these stories to be so much nicer than the dark and darker stuff out there now. So if you enjoy animated features, and you still haven't seen this one, you may find this to be a great start to a new adventure.

5.0 out of 5 starsWorth the upgrade
Verified purchase
This is a review of the new 4k release.
1st I have to say this is one of my favorite animated movies. I have owned it on Blu-ray and 3D Blu-ray and now 4k.
The 4k picture is brighter and the colors are much more intense. The opening scene where the village is under attack is a good example of how the HDR has made significant increases to the color depth. The fire the kids are trying to put out and the dragons themselves are much stronger reds and oranges.
There is a small uptick in texture for example Gobbler's various hands are more detailed and Stoic's clothing and hair are more defined.
The new DTS:X soundtrack is very good and the new mix makes good use of overhead speakers. You are able to hear dragon's fly from one side of the room to the other. The deeper end seems to be boosted as well. Explosions have more weight to them and while they don't rattle the room they are very good.
For me it's definitely worth the upgrade if you have the equipment to enjoy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars2010 Blu Ray version has the most special features of all the version releases.
Verified purchase
While most folks reviewed the movie itself, I was particularly interested in the Specials. If you get the 2015 version of the Blu-ray, yo do not get all of the specials that were released with this version (from back in 2010). Most folks may not realize that. I have no idea why they removed most of the special features in newer releases, but this release has everything that I wanted and then some.

Pop up trivia - not really in depth, but basically with this turned on while watching movie, gives texual snippets throughout the movie.
Animators corner is fairly interesting - Give a PIP (Picture-in-picture) while the movie is playing. Might show the actor recording the voice at that time, the animator working out some details, etc.
The Technical Artistry of Dragons - Sort of the making-of the technical aspects of the movie, such as how the different types of fire was designed, etc.
Viking-sized Cast - The interviews and recordings of the actors.
Bunch of other stuff you might come to expect. Some DVD games, deleted scenes, interview with the person who wrote the original books, etc.

The movie itself is a great movie. No need to elaborate on that. All in all, it is a great buy.

5.0 out of 5 starsDragons are a cross between dogs and cats.
Verified purchase
Love this movie. Could be a little scary for some little ones- scenes of violence, fighting, talk of killing, dragon fighting... surprisingly not a lot of gore for all that stuff. Great messages. And the dragons act like dogs and cats and some are very cute and funny.

5.0 out of 5 starsA GAZILLION STARS!!!
Verified purchase
Okay, I recently watched the new movie Training your Dragon 2. It was fantastic. I did a review saying that it was, and I also went so far as to say "it might even be better than the first." So, I got to thinking...I hadn't seen the first one since it first came out. I decided to watch it again. Wow. This is such a GREAT animation. There just isn't enough space to write the review that HTTYD#1 truly deserves! The characters, the dragons, the color, and the indescribable humor and happiness you feel as you watch Hiccup and Toothless interact and become hero's, best friends, and the beginning of acceptance into a society that was set in an unyielding, ancient ideology. Our own society could learn a great deal from this victorious animation. My hat goes off to the Author, Cressida Cowell (she allowed a great deal of leeway, and a huge change of her original story) she allowed them to make one of the best animation movies I've ever seen! Bravo, ma'am!

1.0 out of 5 starsMovie doesn't work
Verified purchase
Originally I purchased this item in February of 2019, for $9.99. In approximately April or May the movie just stopped working on all our devises (PlayStation, fire stick, fire box, and on our phones) . I called Amazon digital customer service and spent a good deal of time on the phone with them troubleshooting... Nothing made the movie work. Finally the customer service wanted me to have the movie refunded and they wanted me to repurchase it, new price $13.99, to see if it would work. After a long discussion they said that there was no way for me to repurchase it at the original price. I said I wasn't going to buy it for the new price so they just issued me a refund and we lost the movie.

My son was recently ill and wanted to watch this movie. So I gave in and repurchased it at the new price of $13.99. After watching it just a few times we began having the exact same problem and the movie is no longer working... Again! We own approximately 13 movies from Amazon. Which we watch regularly and we've never had a problem with them on any of our devices. It seems ridiculous that Amazon can't figure out what's going on with this movie and fix it. Especially, since they raised their price on the movie when the new one came out and made me repurchase the movie at a higher cost. Extremely dissatisfied.
