    But in order to become the leader of the natives, he performed their greatest feat, an accomplishment of mythic proportions: he rode the dragon-thing. That, to me, was bizarre, given the fact that he was the newest of all newbies at riding anything at all.

But he had been dreaming of flying his whole life. He was a natural, that was supposed to be the point. And he had the balls to take the risks the others didn't.

    On a side note, I thought it was weird that we didn't get to see him conquer the dragon-thing. We saw him dive onto it, but then the scene changed and we never saw the battle for supremacy, maybe because the director didn't think it could be portrayed in a believable manner.

I think that's more of a movie convention. Leave the audience wondering whether or not he succeeded up until the moment he arrives victorious.
