General Gist: The Train Your Dragon sequel where Hiccup and his crew take on an evil dragon collector to keep the peace between humans and dragons.
For this week only one sister was able to make it. It does happen occasionally believe it or not. When it happens usually the kids luck out because who else am I going to go to the movies with?!
I took both my kids to this movie. My 9 and 6 year old. My 9 year old was much more interested in seeing this but the 6 year old will never miss an opportunity to go to a movie and get popcorn and treats.
I enjoyed the first one so I thought this would be equally as good. And it was. There was a lot of action and it was fast paced which is always good for kids. And both my kids enjoyed it. My 9 year old probably liked it better and I think it was a little more appropriate for him as well. I wouldn't say that this movie was really on the violent side but it definitely had some more serious subjects that were a little too heavy for younger kids. Empathy is not really a strong attribute of my 6 year old but there was a point where she thought the movie was sad. If you do have kids that are sensitive to emotions then you might want to think about whether you should take them to this.
But for me and my kids it was a hit that we all thoroughly enjoyed.
