How to Train Your Dragon 2 (Animated Adventure 2014)

Not as good as the first. That pretty much sums it up. Was it OK still? Yes, but it reminded me of how Shrek 2 wasn't good as the original either. Don't know what's up with Dreamworks but they always seem to try to add things to a franchise that just doesn't play out in the long run. They should really just stick to the original equation.

This time around Hiccup and Toothless are in another adventure as they run into a new baddie and a new goodie. This was fine, but there were too many unanswered questions about the main baddie and these Alpha dragons. On top of this, there was one odd singing scene that lasted way too long and lemme tell ya, average kids in the audience wouldn't give a hoot. This whole section could've been taken out along with the beginning scene and parts of the ending as well.

The main thing was that for a kids movie, it seemed much too long and didn't have the necessary content to support it. Let's not make a third, eh?
