Dragon heats up slumping theatres
How to Train Your Dragon The Hidden World is an animated dragon series. With the studios having several weeks of lackluster movies, theatres have wondered when would it pick up whether it’s next month or this year. Is this movie a step in the right direction for the audience, and a bona fide hit?
This third installment (and supposedly final installment) had a lower budget of $129 million than either of the previous movies. The original movie (2010) had $165 million, and the second installment had $145 million in (2014).
Hiccup and Toothless will finally discover their true destinies
As they both ascend, the darkest threat they’ve yet faced as well as the appearance of a female Night Fury they will test the bonds of their relationship like never before. M
I went in How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World with high expectations. This was going to be the final movie of the trilogy so I thought reasonably yeah it’s going to be entertaining at least. I came out a little underwhelmed. If you have an interest about dragons and want a satisfying experience, you’re better of watching Bruce Lee’s classic, Birth of the Dragon.
Fantastic Animation and Score
Yeah, the animation is fantastic and I love the score by John Powell, but it just feels like a very standard sequel. How to Train Your Dragon 2 took risks and got surprisingly dark in places.
The movie rehashes similar themes and scenes of the first two, but it didn’t impress me nearly as much.
This one focuses mostly on a pretty forgettable villain and Toothless’ love interest, who is bland and nowhere near as memorable. The humor didn’t work as well for me and seemed more kiddish compared to the previous two. Everything felt safer and generic.
