This animated kids/family flick from Dreamworks is getting positive marks, especially when viewed in 3-D.
"...a thrilling drama interspersed with amusing comedic elements..."
— Peter DeBruge, Variety
"...has a kinetically dreamy, soaring-through-the-air effervescence. On some level, though, it's just the sweetly simple tale of a boy and his dog."
— Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"Seeing Dragon in 3-D really is a must. Its formidable realm of Vikings and dragons and nerds (oh my!) should be enjoyed to the fullest extent theaters allow."
— Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
"...bright, good-looking and has high energy. Kids above the easily scared age will probably like the movie the younger they are."
— Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"A lively though disjointed 3D cartoon that never quite entices an audience to invest emotionally in its fantasy world."
— Kirk Honeycutt, Hollywood Reporter
