Have you ever wondered the passed years when there was a lack of knowledge and arts? where blacksmiths were messing around with tougher and tougher metals or martial artists fought better and better with more fighting styles? You see were this is going. It is the beginning of an art, a technology, a lifestyle. It is when people learned about living with and riding dragons. Well our protagonist is no scientist by any means but he is the underdog for the job.
Sure it is an animated movie. But it is so believable. Dragons have a dog/wolf attitude. The graphics are awesome. Not realistic but eye-pleasing. Some dragons are goofy they way they are designed but I suppose it servers a greater goal. Needless to say, when I saw the big boss dragon I really checked again when the kaijus were created because of the similarities in the coral head (apart from the size). Apart from all of that we have an authority issue and a father-and-son touching story. As anyone can see we have a great movie for the whole family, from 5 to 95 yeas old.
