It’s been a long time since I reviewed a Disney flick. I think the last one was FROZEN and I have to say I liked this one better. BIG HERO 6 is about a young genius named Hiro whose self relegated to robot fighting his creations. His brother is also (not shockingly a genius who introduces Hiro to his other genius friends). So what we have here is a lot of genius’s flying around….great. So after feeling disconnected from every character in the movie “bam”, Disney does it again and hooks you in with some great emotional story line and cool twists that really bring this thing to life. Hiro and his friends are pitted against some pretty cool but potentially dark tech that Hiro himself came up with. That is about as far as I will go with the plot, but there are a few over the top things here.
The first thing I noticed was the attention to detail. This movie made me want to visit San Francisco for the first time in my life. If anything I wish they would have taken time on letting the audience see some of those frames and all the work that went into them. For FROZEN fans there is no music from the characters, it’s a lot more like THE INCREDIBLES than anything we’ve seen. I do wish they would have gone into a bit more development with the secondary characters but they do make up for a lot of this by giving us a very lovable robot to take center stage known as Baymax. Overall BIG HERO 6 gave me more than I expected and this is yet another more than welcome addition to the Disney lineup. 3D on this one is not a necessity and I do believe it will translate to your HD TV just fine if you decide to wait and rent or buy it.
