|Make way for Baymax!|
Big Hero 6 Review – Don’t worry…this is not a sequel for Big Hero 1,2, 3, 4 or 5 and move over minions…there is a new cutie called Baymax and it is adorable and cuddly as Polar Bear minus the fur.
|Welcome to San Fransokyo!|
The story is set in San Francisco and Tokyo mixture of city called San Fransokyo. Brothers, Tadashi (Daniel Henney) and Hiro (Ryan Potter) are living with their aunt Cass (Maya Rudolph) after losing their parents. Both brothers have brilliant innovating skills and to prevent Hiro from wasting his talents on illegal bot fight, Tadashi takes Hiro to his University to meet his other inventor friends, Go Go (Jamie Chung), Wasabi (Damon Wayans Jr.) Honey Lemon (Genesis Rodriguez) and Fred (T.J. Miller). Tadashi also introduces Hiro to his own creation, Baymax (Scott Adsit). Hiro gets inspired and manage to impress Professor Callaghan (James Cromwell) with his own microbot invention during a demonstration. The joy of Hiro being accepted into the University are short lived when a tragedy strikes and Hiro is back into being depressed again until he accidently activates Baymax. Together they uncover a sinister plot taking place with Hiro microbot being manipulated by a man in a kabuki mask. With the help of Tadashi’s friends, Hiro decides to uncover the plan and suit each of them with hi tech upgrades turning them into unlikely Superheroes. Will this new band of Superheroes stop the menace from taking place….. *insert fist bump…fra la la
First of all how cute is Baymax! That huggable marshmallow will melt your heart the moment you set your eyes on it. Plus Baymax also has a great sense of humour. The best part is when Baymax tries to cheer up Hiro and getting him back on his feet after a devastating loss. The voice talent are greatly matched with the characters while the setting of San Fransokyo is a bonus tour for those who have not been to both San Francisco and Tokyo before. The lines are witty and entertaining and in no time you will be rooting for the heroes to defeat the Kabuki masked guy. It also teaches a few lesson of not wasting ones talent and how to cope with sudden loss. Fall Out Boy’s Immortal suits well as the movie’s theme as well.
|Have you #Baymaxhug someone today?|
Throughout the movie I wished I had Baymax too to handle my own loss. Heck if I was not ‘strong’ enough I would have shed tears during some of the emotional moments in this flick. No shame admitting that! It’s not very often a movie makes you feel good and Big Hero 6 is one of those few. Bring your young ones to this and have a blast with Baymax!

P/s – stay until the end credit. I didn’t so am kicking myself for leaving the cinema early but then it’s a good excuse to watch the movie again now right? *wink wink
