Big Hero 6

Aimed at kids, adults will laugh a lot. Disney just moved the goalposts and combined comic, superhero and science genres to create an intelligent and gorgeous movie, full of charm and style.

Set in the imaginary city of San Fransokyo, young Hiro is an intelligent but aimless nerd. His big brother drags him to meet his classmates and their work inspires Hiro.

Most of the action is fast-paced and compelling but the biggest relationship here is between Hiro and his brother’s creation, a health robot named Baymax. Baymax is the Pillsbury dough boy on steroids. “I am not fast”, Baymax says, during a chase scene.

Others can argue about the science of the robotics and “microbots” shown here. Fred, Go Go, Honey Lemon and Wasabi are the classmates who share the ride and they are all beautifully-drawn and full of life.

Even if you dislike the current generation of animation, you’ll warm to this and long for the planned sequel.

It’s best to know as little as possible of the story going in as you will gasp at the twists and turns and be thrilled by the battle of good versus evil.

I saw it in 2D with a very full audience, but it’s also available in 3D. How that could make it more lovely is beyond me.

Stay after the credits for a special Stan Lee appearance.

Please, Disney, might I have the sequel right now? This was so much fun that I want much more, as soon as humanly possible.



  1. Even My son and I love it. Slow is often an outcast in the society. Now, Big Hero 6 proves there is goodness in being slow.

    • It’s just a gorgeous film for all ages. I am so pleased that you and your son liked it. Thank you for the comment!

      • Welcome

  7. It is an adorable movie. When I saw it, they played a short (6-7-minute) animated feature called “Feast”. Gorgeous romcom, told through the food the dog is eating. It won an Oscar. Do see that if you can and thank you for the comment.
