REVIEWER: lyall carter
The special bond that develops between plus-sized inflatable robot Baymax, and prodigy Hiro Hamada, who team up with a group of friends to form a band of high-tech heroes.
Big Hero 6 has an intriguing genesis from unknown Marvel comic to Disney’s 54th feature length animation. And it’s another good one.
Hiro, a robotics prodigy, joins hands with Baymax in order to avenge his brother's death. They then team up with Hiro's friends to form a team of high-tech heroes.
In Won’t You Be My Neighbour Mr. Rogers, the children’s entertainer, speaks about how they spoke about death on his program the week after JFK was assassinated and how its important for children to be involved in the grieving process.
Not since Bambi have Disney tackled death so well than in Big Hero 6. It’s at the heart of the story as Hiro not only deals with the death of his brother but his guilt over it. It’s heartbreaking and bold and helps tell children and adults alike that all the emotions that they are feeling during grieving are valid.
Big Hero 6 isn’t a sad movie by any means and is filled with great superhero animated action and belly laughs generally courtesy of Baymax.
Disney hits it out of the park with Big Hero 6 a film that is serious enough to tackle big subjects like death and grieving but light enough for their to be a smile on your face by the end of the film.
