[It's] a rare instance where the sequel is as good as the original.

While How to Tame Your Dragon 2 is geared toward kids, I defy adults not to find something to enjoy as well.

The four year gap between films speaks volumes at how important crafting the story was, as opposed to doing it quickly and raking in the money.

Basically what a sequel should be - entertaining but doesn't forget to be emotionally satisfying. I believe second viewings are in order...

How to Train Your Dragon 2 is the most fun I've had in a movie theatre in ages.

It's perhaps the way in which DeBlois mixes all these elements - the heart, the action, the animation, the expanded world - together that makes How to Train Your Dragon 2 so utterly enjoyable.

Like Hiccup, though, the filmmaker is willing to take big risks and deal with the results, which are, by turns, harrowing, heartbreaking, thrilling and uplifting. Everything a fantasy adventure should be, in other words.

I don't know what it is, I just can't get into the voice casting of these movies. It's still a good movie...I just can't get into the voice performances of this movie.

The voice-over cast led by Jay Baruchel and Gerard Butler are terrific and so is the new addition, Cate Blanchett.

The animation is zippy and crammed with smart sight gags.

How to Train Your Dragon is peppered with plenty of wit to keep parents and kids alike happy, but is not afraid to get a bit dark at times, which may be challenging for younger audiences.

If every installment can capture the same sense of escapism and passionate dedication to its ideas and images, then I'd be delighted to go on more flights of fancy with Hiccup and Toothless.

"How to Train Your Dragon 2" rises above its animated peers with more troubling themes, outstanding character design and innovative "camera" movements. And it rarely, if ever, takes the easy way out.
