In the Viking village of Berk, Hiccup (Jay Baruchel) is an unlikely hero. Surrounded by burly, bearded Vikings, clumsy, frail Hiccup wounds a dragon—and realizes he doesn’t have it in him to kill, leading to a curious friendship. How to Train Your Dragon gets plenty of mileage from its with-it script and a voice cast that also features Gerard Butler, Craig Ferguson and America Ferrera. They keep things moving without trying to be showstoppers—and Ferguson is a real keeper. However, the animation is just OK. On the plus side, the 3-D is more vibrant and works better than it has in animated films like Up, Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs and Monsters vs. Aliens. Like the 3-D glasses that come with your tickets, How to Train Your Dragon is disposable, but it sets simple goals and slightly exceeds them.
