Big Hero 6

Big Hero 6

This is one of the most unique Disney superhero movies since...well, The Incredibles. From the studio behind the successful Wreck-It Ralph and last year's Frozen, comes Big Hero 6, a brand new computer-graphic animated Disney movie that is a sure fire fit for the imminent holiday season. Before creating this unique Disney movie, the people in charge of this film are drawing inspiration from the Japanese pop culture, from anime, mecha, and whatever Japanese-y, they've studied Japanese pop culture, which served as the inspiration for this anime-inspired superhero flick for the whole family.

Set in the fictitious and futuristic town of San Fransokyo (think San Francisco meets Tokyo), it's all about a young boy named Hiro Hamada. Moments after the disappearance of his brother Tadashi, Hiro is caught in the middle of a sinister plot from the evil organization, which threatens to take over the city. With his trusty inflatable robot pal, named Baymax, on his side, Hiro Hamada must assemble a group of six crime-fighting superheroes on a mission to save their hometown. Teaming alongside Hiro and Baymax are Honey Lemon, Go Go Tomago, Wasabi, and Fred, a dude who can turn himself into a fearsome kaiju.

If you're a little kid, to you, this movie is all about action packed adventures that fulfill your fantasy. You can enjoy watching it to your heart's content without bothering to tell about the movie's storytelling because...so what? Kids say the coolest of things and that's it. They get to see the sights of sounds of the futuristic town of San Fransokyo in their own eyes and witness super cool scenes as the movie builds up to the most intense moment yet.

If you're a grown up, this movie is pretty much lacking to your own personal tastes. While the originality is fine, the storytelling just doesn't fit for this movie but because with all the anime and mecha inspiration drawn through the making of this movie, you'll start getting used to this movie more than the other successful CG-animated Disney films.

In essence then, Big Hero 6 may not be a good film for the thrill-seekers but this is probably one of the best family-friendly superhero flick for the imminent holiday season. Parents, if your kids are free, tell them to take them to the theaters to watch one. This movie isn't half bad, although the only thing that bothers me the most is...why is Baymax kinda look like the Michelin Man or that Stay Puft Marshmallow Man from Ghostbusters?

My rating: 3.8 out of 5.
