Big Hero 6 (Film Review)

'Big Hero 6' is the first animated feature from Disney on what looks like one of the many Marvel comic books the studio is adapting on-screen. But unlike the recent Marvel feature movies released, this one is dependent on it's own. No Iron Man, Captain America or Thor, it's pretty clear that Disney want things to be fresh, since this movie have the elements of your typical superhero blockbuster, while having the classic warmth and heart of a Disney film.

At it's core, the film is about the special bond between a kid and a robot. Prodigy Hiro Hamada, on the state of despair after his brother Tadashi died on an accident, found a friend with his robot Baymax -- a inflatable, soft, personal care assistant that is too reminiscent of the Marshmallow man from 'Ghostbusters II'.
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 GoGo 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.”

Though it didn't pull the strings better than Disney's previous animated films like Frozen and Wreck-It Ralph, this movie is a lot of fun. And I mean, antics after antics that children (and adults as well) will have a great time with. The star of the movie, Baymax will be remembered in a long time after the release of this movie, has the most laughs than any character. His adorable presence is for sure one of the many reasons you should see this movie.
If there is any gripes I had for this movie, is that it's too short. Things went really fast that you want to see what might happen to Hiro and his merry troop of nerds. There were no slow moments, right from the first scene with Hiro fighting with his self-made machine-killer to the last few touching moments.

The visuals were beautiful and vibrant as well. The stand-out was the sleek and stylish design of the city San Fransokyo, which mashes the east and west coast, may as well be a character to the film. 

'Big Hero 6' is a lot of fun. I had an enormous fun with it. See it with how many kids you can bring with. We might see these guys again soon enough. 

In Marvel tradition, stay until the credits roll ended. Not really big, so don't expect Nick Fury pop-up and ask Baymax to join the Avengers. 

The geek rates it a 8/10. 

'Big Hero 6' is rated G and locally distributed by Walt Disney Pictures!
