Big Hero 6 Reviews

It's virtually impossible to resist the charm of 'Big Hero 6', the new film from Walt Disney Animation Studios, at whose center is the touching relationship between a young boy and an oversized inflatable robot...You'll be chuckling throughout, and 95 minutes will fly by.

It's a film with cool female characters (I wish the gawky Honey Lemon got her own comic book, for example) and one that is besotted with technology the same way you'd expect kids reared on iOS devices to be. It's all detail, with parts of the film even reminiscent of HBO's fantastic (but decidedly grown-up) comedy, Silicon Valley.

...as far as having ‘fun’ goes, be sure that this movie promises 100 minutes of entertainment for kids and it is safe to say that even adults will also not be bored. This is a one-time watch, specifically for the cuddly and puffy robot. You made my ribs hurt, Ow!??

Definitely a delightful film with its heart in the right place.

This is a film you can take your family to. It's the kind of a film a child any age can enjoy, despite a few violent moments here and there. But then again, we see far worse on cartoon shows, these days, don't we?

Big Hero 6 marks Disney’s foray as far as super hero animation films are concerned. Inspired by the super hero team of the same name of Marvel comics it is one of the most entertaining animation film we have seen in a while.

This is a superhero origin story that doesn’t really feel like an origin story. There’s a waft of good-natured familiarity in the whole thing, but the feeling is that of a warm welcome back rather than a cold beginning.

Overall, “Big Hero 6″ is an attractive film that can be classified as a classic animation film.

Big Hero 6 makes animated action movies fun for the whole family. You can watch this from start to finish and go back to watching it all over again, just to find out that it has gotten better upon second watch. Disney has delivered big time. However, it has now been done without playing to the crowd. That is the best part of the movie, a story that is amazing, visuals that are stupendous, humor that will leave you giggling, and excitement that will make you whoop. Do not miss this movie. Big Hero 6 is just what the doctor ordered.

Visually and technically well-executed, and a tad long, Big Hero 6 is an enjoyable movie event for children, left wide open for the making of a sequel.

    I enjoy animation movies not because they help us dive back into our childhood memories as cartoons, but because they often speak volumes about world issues. While Big Hero 6 doesn't particularly point at any issue, it may inspire children to embrace science and technology.

    It is basically a superhero film and as all superhero films go, it says almost one and the same thing. A bunch of heroes with powers defeat the villain. Period. In here, the story revolves around a teen who takes the help of his friends and a robot to avenge his brother's death.

    The bot Baymax is very adorable and children will love it. It is the only new thing that managed to intrigue me. How 14-year-olds manage to invent hybrid technological marvels is beyond my understanding, and that is why I do not appreciate the friendship of East & West here. The Japanization troubled me a little. The plot is about robotics, science, and ideas. Its audience will stay spellbound at how marvelously the writers have added color and creativity in the story. With a great comic timing, Big Hero 6 keeps you engaged on a thread.

    The chief issue it addresses is that of the perils of technology and how everything is based in the programming. The film, as a whole, makes nerds, an ilk mocked by many, look cool. It is nicely directed, has great sound effects, good score, and brilliant art setup.

    But, too bad, Big Hero 6 struggles with its clichés. The story goes literally unbelievable sometimes and slightly jumps the line as it starts its narration. Visuals effects reminded me of Spider-Man 3 and if you stop and think for a moment after the climax, the whole shindig looks like a goofy, child's play.

    BOTTOM LINE: Of course not the best animation movie of the year. The makers have evidently failed to acknowledge the fact that, since the boom of computer animation and its cinema genre in the 90s, animation films are mostly fables than comedy-dramas.

    Can be watched with a typical Indian family? YES
