I didn’t come into this movie expecting much but I really enjoyed it for the most part. It was definitely one of the better non-Pizar animated flicks in the past few years.
The animation was top-notch and the voice work was great EXCEPT for Jay Baruchel as the main character, Hiccup. I don’t know what it was but every time he spoke, it irritated me. It didn’t ruin the whole experience but it didn’t do the movies any favors. Since I imagine this will become a franchise, I’m reluctant to comit to the rest of the sequels with Baruchel as the lead.
Also, the 3D wasn’t that great which made me grumble about the cost of 3D movies again.
