Sequel Showdown: "22 Jump Street" VS. "How to Train Your Dragon 2!" Which is Better? 


It’s a sequel showdown at the box-office between the action comedy “22 Jump Street” and the animated fantasy “How to Train Your Dragon 2.” In “Jump Street,” Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum or Janning return to team up once again for the sequel for directors Christopher Miller and Phil Lord.

Meanwhile, Jay Baruchel comes back to voice the role of Hiccup in “Dragon 2.” Together with his dragon, Toothless, they explore a new territory that will pit good against evil.

So which one is my pick of the week? Take a look at my movie reviews of what’s happening this weekend at the box-office.



Official “22 Jump Street” Synopsis

After making their way through high school (twice), big changes are in store for officers Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) when they go deep undercover at a local college. But when Jenko meets a kindred spirit on the football team, and Schmidt infiltrates the bohemian art major scene, they begin to question their partnership. Now they don't have to just crack the case - they have to figure out if they can have a mature relationship. If these two overgrown adolescents can grow fromfreshmen into real men, college might be the best thing that ever happened to them. (c) Sony

Official “How to Train Your Dragon 2” Synopsis

It's been five years since Hiccup and Toothless successfully united dragons and vikings on the island of Berk. While Astrid, Snotlout and the rest of the gang are challenging each other to dragon races (the island's new favorite contact sport), the now inseparable pair journey through the skies, charting unmapped territories and exploring new worlds. When one of their adventures leads to the discovery of a secret ice cave that is home to hundreds of new wild dragons and the mysterious Dragon Rider, the two friends find themselves at the center of a battle to protect the peace. Now, Hiccup and Toothless must unite to stand up for what they believe while recognizing that only together do they have the power to change the future of both men and dragons.
