Film Review | Big Hero 6

Here comes Baymax, the cutest superhero this season

In the animated Big Hero 6, 14-year-old Hiro Hamada (Ryan Potter’s voice) is a robotics genius who makes his own bots (short for robots) and fights other bots in the underground arena. His older brother, Tadashi, also a scientific genius, prefers to channel his skills into working in a college lab. During these lab hours, he invents Baymax (Scott Adsit), a personal health care giver.

But following a tragedy, Hiro decides to upgrade the cuddly Baymax’s functions and make him a Ninja fighter instead. Hiro unites Tadashi’s nerdy friends, Go Go Tamago, Wasabi, Honey Lemon and Fred, to form an unexpected troupe of superheroes who fend off a dastardly attack on their city. What starts off as a vendetta mission transmutes into a selfless act that also serves as an emotional balm.

Baymax is the real hero of this American-Japanese hybrid Disney superhero-comedy set in the fictitious town of San Fransokyo. Visually and technically well-executed, though a tad long, Big Hero 6 is an enjoyable movie event for children, left wide open for a sequel.

The oversized and awkward, cute and caring Baymax could easily be the preferred stocking stuffing this Christmas.

Big Hero 6 released in theatres on Friday.
