- Gist: The dragons and their vikings face the greatest danger since the last movie: a pro dragon-killer with the soul of a rat snake and the voice of F. Murray Abraham. So sexy.
- New awesome dragon species: 5, plus those ugly little hobgoblin dragons.
- Adorable romances: 2 or 3, depending on your standards
- Voice acting: First rate! Did I mention F. Murray Abraham?
- Animation: Outstanding, with those little touches that are part masterpiecework and part showing off.
- Plot holes: Aw, who cares. There’re dragons!
- Themes: Love, loss, courage, and sacrifice. Can’t beat those.
- Family?: Yes. Kids will love it and adults will enjoy it instead of wanting to gnaw their own fingers off.
Conclusion: See it, with or without the kids, and bid a happy farewell to an excellent animated movie trilogy.
