So I just received this Blu Ray from Samsung and I love it so here's my review
This movies is about Hiccup, a misfit viking who shoots down a Night Fury (deadliest dragon ever) by accident to impress his tribe and father who HATE dragons with a passion. Eventually the title comes to play and he learns to fly... and save his village. The voice acting was great. Jay Baruchel empathized on his nerd factor on Hiccup making Hiccup an excellent empathic character who was easy to relate to (if you are in AVS you should sympathize you are a NERD too!) Gerald Butler was perfect for Stoick the Vast, Hiccup's dad with an awesome accent and fitting character. However with an all star cast America Ferrera fell flat as her character was bland and predictable but her screaming was hilarious.
With a superb Dolby TrueHD 7.1 mix you can hear the brilliance in the small details like background stepping or noises like chatter with clarity. This lossless audio is a step above the lossy presentation of MvA (Monsters VS ALIENS) and really places an audience member within the action. The audio also amplifies the 3D effect subtly by adding hearing to the mix. Especially with a Sony STRDA4300ES 7.1 CH 700W Surround Sound A/V Receiver system the audio is in pristine uncompressed quality!
The video has great quality a brilliant transfer. The 3D effects were even better with dragon heads actually popping and coming out of the screen in a clear fashion. However there were some ghosting issues and really dark scenes that were surprisingly bright on the 2D version. Scenes like the Dragon Training was actually presented well with awesome depth and did not seem cheesy with 3D gags and cliques such as 'ping-pong' effects. The disc is a treasure and amazing to share and really shows off my Samsung 9000 better than MvA would ever do.
I did not mark off tiny issues like seconds of ghosting, however this disc is brilliantly rendered , high quality but lacks features. However true fans of 3D and the film itself will not be disappointed. I will sell on eBay before the commercial release drops but for now this exclusive gets an A!
