Little Nicky, the son of the Tanner, a famous strongman, has made up his mind, that he can conquer the dragon as his father did long ago. Against prohibition of his father, Nicky has managed to get into trouble and now it depends only on his courage, whether he defeats the resurgent dragon and returns home from the magic world.
First off, let me just start off by saying this is an EXTREMELY typical and stereotypical story about evil dragons. Remember how amazing, revolutionary and deep Hw to train your dragon was? Well forget about all that, here dragons are evil by default and deserve to be killed FOR NO REASON. Just ask yourself - what's the motivation of the dragons? It's never explained. Where are the other dragons? Why did they want to burn everything? Not explained either.
This is not a movie that teachers your children to think, it's a movie that makes them think stereotypically, giving others labels. They could have partially fixed that by including reptiles as animal characters, bot no - even there there is nothing more but mammals. And in the end, it's "HOORAY TO MAMMALS, WE ARE THE BEST! Let those evil reptiles being extinct forever!"(which is very similar to The Hobbit trilogy with an evil dragon, lots of cute mammal animals but zero reptiles) - that's exactly the kind of movie it is.
Animation is fine and directing was almost ok, but because of the wrong messages, the overall story I can't recommend this movie to anyone.
