Big Hero 6
Big Hero 6 is inspired by the Marvel comic of the same name, though Disney have made major changes to make this Big Hero 6 their own story. Essentially it’s a film about nerds being cool, loss, discovering the power of friends, and accepting people for who they are. Hiro Hamada is the hero of the tale, and begins as a delinquent who hangs out at illegal robot fighting clubs, acting all innocent and naive, but actually having a killer robot ready to scam the winnings. His older brother however has to help him out of a sticky situation when the guys he just played, decide to teach him a lesson. The older brother then takes him to his place of study where predictably Hiro falls in love with the place, the people and the possibilities.
But first he must qualify for tech and to do so must presentation of a new device of his making. Hiro blows everyone away, but then tragedy strikes.
Left in a funk, Hiro discovers his brothers helpful inflatable robot and together they investigate his brothers death, leading them back to tech and enlisting the help of his new friends to battle the bad guy.
With plenty of action, a few twists and some real emotion, as well as ample laughs, Big Hero 6 is extreme fun for the whole family, and this Marvel Disney mash up manages to outdo Pixar’s The Incredible’s, which is a very hard thing to do.
If you only see one animated film this year, make sure it’s Big Hero 6.
Rating: PG Low level violence.
