Some of the greatest movies ever made are the ones with a long running history behind them, and the How To Train Your Dragon series is no exception. How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World is the third and presumably final installment of the nine year old Dreamworks series and, like most Dreamworks movies, had me wanting to go back and watch it all over again.

Fans of the original How To Train Your Dragon movie will find that the third installment has what we all love about the series: humor and, most importantly, the good old fashioned bond between Toothless and Hiccup. It seems that with every new installment of the series, the bond grows stronger and stronger between the two protagonists. For most, myself included, that bond of friendship is what we look forward to in these movies. With this presumably being the final installment of the series, the movie makes sure to include nostalgic moments from the past movies just to give the audience that controversial tear-jerker.

Another great thing that this movie, like so many today, did amazingly was the attention to detail. Countless shots of the village, Berk, and all of its glory are seen many times, and those with a trained eye may be able to spot out memorable scenes from the first and second movies. As far as graphics go, this movie doesn’t disappoint. “It almost felt as if you could imagine yourself as a cartoon character in the movie. The graphics and overall look of the movie were pretty good in that regard,” sophomore Emin Dermirkilic said after being asked about what his favorite part of the movie was.

Finally, one of the biggest parts of the movie that made it exceptional, in my opinion, was the story. I couldn’t count on my fingers how many times I was on the edge of my seat watching the story unfold in many different ways. While the overall conflict of the movie could have been introduced a little more realistically, I do like what the producers were trying to go for; a dragon trapper army who wish to exterminate all dragons. I feel if there was a little more realism, especially on the part where the community of Berk use more of the dragons to their advantage, then it would have been slightly more tasteful in that regard. Overall, the story is one that I will hold all future Dreamworks movies to.

To conclude this review, I would highly recommend to anyone with a taste of cartoon fantasy and story to watch this incredible movie. Watchers of the original movies will find that this movie, like the others,  entertains and surprises viewers with exceptional storytelling and plot.
