After getting over the sticker shock of the $10 surcharge on my regular matinee fee for 3D and IMAX, I really enjoyed this film and recommend it to every one as a real visual and story telling treat. The story is about a young viking who wants to be a dragon hunter like his father but gets derailed when he befriends and takes care of a mysterious dragon that he helps recover from the lost of a tail fin. The voice cast includes stars you would not expect in a typical kid film but an adult comedy like Jay Baruchel, Gerard Butler, Craig Ferguson, America Ferrera, Jonah Hill, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Kristen Wiig and T.J. Miller. The various dragons are really cool and fun to learn about much like my joy of reading the Dungeon & Dragons Monster Manuals from TSR back in junior high school - enjoyed the manuals more than playing the game. I will definitely be getting this little treasure for my movie collection when it hits DVD - maybe even Blu-ray.
