Dragons II: Metal Ages is an all-too-rare instance of a sequel being better than the first movie in the series. The story is easier to follow, the central characters have more nuance than the basic teen archetypes they were in the first, and the action is more creative and engaging, with only slightly better computer animation than the first.

Still, even with these improvements, like its predecessor, this is a movie best enjoyed by fans of the fantasy genre. Younger or more sensitive viewers will be frightened by the demonic looks of the evil dragons, and parents wary of consumerism will be turned off by a line of toys created and marketed by the Mega Bloks toy company, who also co-produced the movie. That being said, fans of medieval battle with chain mail-clad soldiers and dragons will find much to enjoy.
