Big Hero 6 Review

With all the heart and humor audiences expect from Walt Disney Animation Studios, “Big Hero 6” is an action-packed comedy-adventure about robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada, who learns to harness his genius—thanks to his brilliant brother Tadashi and their like-minded friends: adrenaline junkie Go Go Tamago, neatnik Wasabi, chemistry whiz Honey Lemon and fanboy Fred. When a devastating turn of events catapults them into the midst of a dangerous plot unfolding in the streets of San Fransokyo, Hiro turns to his closest companion—a robot named Baymax—and transforms the group into a band of high-tech heroes determined to solve the mystery. Inspired by the Marvel comics of the same name, and featuring comic-book style action, “Big Hero 6” is directed by Don Hall (“Winnie the Pooh”) and Chris Williams (“Bolt”), and produced by Roy Conli (“Tangled”). 

My family and I attended a screening of Big Hero 6, which I thought was a really great family film.

The movie is centered around Hiro, a 14-year old genius, and Baymax, a robotic Healthcare Companion built by his brother, Tadashi, plus four friends who are geniuses themselves.

From the very beginning of the movie we witnessed Hiro's awesome robotic skills, which were displayed in a hilarous Bot Fight match.

When Tadashi takes Hiro to the San Fransokyo's Institute of Technology with the hopes of getting him to apply his skills in a prestigious school rather than in Bot Fights, we were introduced to four of his science wiz friends, as well as Baymax.

Activated via others' expressions of pain, Baymax can help with just about any health issue there is with a quick scan and a few questions, and he will not deactivate until his patient expresses his or her satisfaction.

Hiro is so impressed with Tadashi's (and his friends') projects, that he wants nothing more than to get himself enrolled in the school.

He succeeds, but tragedy soon strikes close to Hiro, and he no longer has the enthusiasm for school, nor anything else.

However, he and Baymax soon discover some evil things that are occurring, and they enlist the help of the four friends to stop the villain behind it all.

After becoming equipped with super "powers," the team of 6 - Big Hero 6, conquer many obstacles and eventually succeed in their mission.

Knowing how much good they were able to do, and how much they can still do, they continue their efforts in offering help to those who need it.

Big Hero 6 was full of lots of excitement and laughter, and even a few tears.  I did not expect for some of the sequences to be so heavy, but thankfully most of the movie was full of action and adventure, and many, many funny moments - most of which involved Baymax.

Despite no facial expressions, Baymax's actions and verbal communication sure made people laugh. One of the funniest for my kids was when he had to deflate a little in order to fit through a small window - watching Baymax get smaller and the noise that accompanied the action resulted in giggle fits!

There were also a few funny moments that only adults could understand, and I thought it was very clever how they fit those parts into the movie.

I loved how this movie made science look cool and fun, and the scenes of San Fransokyo really added to the entertainment value of the film.

Big Hero 6 is a very entertaining family film, and I hope to see Big Hero 6 on more adventures!

Big Hero 6 (Rated PG) is now in theaters.

Thank you to the sponsor for the complimentary screening tickets.
