Movie Review: How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World

Despite being the trilogy's weakest film, How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World was still extremely entertaining with gorgeously rendered visuals and stunningly vibrant and energetic animation and action sequences.

Narratively though, the film wasn't as interesting as the first two and I felt like it all came down to the weak villain. Grimmel, voiced by F. Murray Abraham, was frustratingly one dimensional with by-the-numbers motivations that they genuinely could've done it entirely without him. Sure, they needed a threat, but he could've been written and executed a lot better. That said, nothing was lost in terms of appeal, luster and charm as the chemistry between Hiccup - who I thought was constantly (and impressively) evolving in every film - and Toothless was increasingly palpable with the final ten minutes incredibly emotional that it's what made this film for me.

How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World was slightly underwhelming if taken as a whole, but there was something overwhelmingly fulfilling towards the end of the movie. I don't know what it was, but thank you, Toothless!
