From Walt Disney Animation Studios, the team behind Frozen and Wreck-It Ralph, comes Big Hero 6, an action-packed comedy-adventure about the special bond that develops between Baymax, a plus-sized inflatable robot, and prodigy Hiro Hamada. When a devastating event befalls the city of San Fransokyo and catapults Hiro into the midst of danger, he turns to Baymax and his close friends adrenaline junkie Go Go Tomago, neatnik Wasabi, chemistry whiz Honey Lemon and fanboy Fred. Determined to uncover the mystery, Hiro transforms his friends into a band of high-tech heroes called “Big Hero 6.”
I’m not exactly sure why it took so long for me to finally watch Big Hero 6. I’m not really into Disney, but I try to watch any film that earns an Oscar. Overall, the film is a beautiful film about grief and growing up. Hiro is a likeable yet annoying child prodigy protagonist, but his helpful companion Baymax picks up the slack. I have to give props to the voice cast as with each Disney film in recent years they embodied their characters with theirs voices, I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Big Hero 6 was decent and all, but should have not won the Oscar. It only won due to the Academy snubbing yet another fantastic film (no mentions/plugs here). I would like to point out that Big Hero 6 does have some lo brow humor, which is expected of course. The film does get dark at one point, tackle the touchy subject of murder. View at your discretion (watch it).
- Likeable characters
- Cool setting.
- Murder… 🙂
- Doesn’t deserve the Oscar.
- Lo brow humor.
SCORE: 8.0 /10
