though the cast is just as adorable as the first, with better animations, great voice acting and a decent story, the plot didnt feel very fluid and the ham-handed family values and a generic villain brought it down. it's an excellent kid's movie but didn't pull me as much as the first one. it's still pretty brutal at times though.

7/10

First film has a great story; a boy becomes a man, standing against social pressure, desire for acceptance, hiccup's eager to prove himself. What we have in this movie is just heartwarming flashbacks. For the sake of first movie this movie can be tolerable but more dragons and wandering around the almost same subjects is not the answer. Hiccup proved his father that dragons may be loyal in first movie and in the secont he showed that to a corny villain character which makes no sense what is next proving this to obama?

Nice movie that adults and kids can enjoy together.

Not nearly as charming or funny as the first, but still pretty decent.

Loved it! It was great twist that they jumped in time so the characters could be developed. Can't wait to see the next one, and of corse the series. Great visuals, story and a well created universe with dragons to explore.

As an adult, I appreciated it, saying what it does about family - perhaps some of us need a reminder about that occasionally. Our 6 year old loved it. Plenty of action, excitement and humour. Highly recommended.

As good as the first, if not better. Plot combines well action, comedy, and drama, and the visuals are some of the best in any recent animation. DreamWorks does their best work when they go deeper like this (instead of vapid comedies such as Turbo).

In the beginning I wasn't so sure if I was gonna like it as much as the first part... but again the story was nice, the dragons were so cute and colorful... some great effects. Quite entertaining, thumbs up!

Not as heartfelt and enthralling as the first film. A well timed Sigur Ros infused flying montage started the film on it's highest note and deteriorated from there. However, Hiccup and Toothless' relationship is currently in the running for most touching human to non-human relationship in the animated canon.

How to Train Your Dragon 2 has the same grand sense of adventure, so much the plot problems aren't readily apparently, though they may creep on you in the afterglow. The cardboard villain, for example, just how does he take control of the Alpha Dragon? But while the family subplot is unsurprising and follows formula, it seems to follow the first film's sense of stakes, coming with a real cost and is touchingly acted. That it IS formulaic means you should already know what the third film (set to release in 2019) will be about. For all that, it's fun to see all those characters back for a second adventure, and the world of dragons is expanded and given new wrinkles, which is what a fantasy film should do with its sequels.

One of the most anticipated animated sequels for me.
The first is awesome, really good, this one is on the same level, a little bit dark and I like that.
The third one is coming in 2017, not need to rush it, make the third as good as this twos.
4.5/5

Loved it! Really great, the story wasn't quite as touching as the first but overall this was a really good movie for adults and kids alike. The animation was awesome and the pacing of the movie really surprised me, it was good! All the voice actors were wonderful also.

Where was the plot? Compared to the first one (which I loved and is my all-time favourite animation) this was just "look how cool the dragons are" and bad jokes. Also, wtf was with all the drama - spoiler.

I'm shocked to see this has such a high rating on rottentomatoes. It's certainly not awful, but it sure does shoehorn in a lot of animated movie cliches within the first 20 min; 20 min that also features multiple flashbacks that don't further the story in an interesting way. It's plot driving plot, not character driving plot. Aside from that, the visuals are impressive, the moments of world building that expand this universe are fantastic, but the film is a mixed bag. Fleeting fantastic moments and a lot plodding, useless exposition.
