Big Hero 6 – Movie Review
This is one of my favorite animated movies. It’s very creative and detailed with the storyline and characters. I had no idea it was a Marvel creation until I saw it in the credits. I’m not a fan of superhero movies, but this movie featured science so much, not people born with superhuman capabilities.
Basically, a very intelligent 14-year-old boy named Hiro (who, we’re told, graduated from high school at 13) likes to compete in bot fighting, using a small but clever little robot that he put together. After checking out his older brother Tadashi’s science school/university he decided he “just had to go there”. Tadashi’s science project had been a type of robotic nurse, named Baymax, who was a lovable large (squishy) robot who was programmed with over 10,000 medical procedures.
Hiro creates what he calls “micro bots” which are controlled telepathically using a neurotransmitter worn around the head. Tragedy strikes when a mysterious person sets the building on fire and Tadashi runs into the building in hopes to rescue his Professor.
Eventually, Hiro hooks up with Tadashi’s scientist friends (along with Baymax) and they become a team of superheros who set out to find and capture the villain.
This is an emotional movie, in my opinion. I’m not sure it’s perfect for small children, but definitely older kids, teens, and adults alike can enjoy this adventurous Disney movie. My toddler likes scenes with Baymax, but that’s just about it. I think he’s too young to understand the storyline.
I think this movie is really good and I recommend it.
