    Big Hero 6 is a movie that intrigues me on a lot of levels. It ought to have everything going for it. It's based on a Marvel property (which I didn't even realize until I was seeing the movie (I can't say what gave it away (okay, I could, but that would be a spoiler))). That said, it's based on a Marvel property that I'm not actually familiar with so this is the rare adaptation (from a comic book) that I can see without having a picture in my mind of how it ought to be. Of course, I looked up the comic when I got home, and the path of adaptation they chose for this one is really interesting. The comic is loosely set in the X-Men side of Marvel so has the full spectrum of mutants and all of that. The movie has removed everything that isn't technology based or transformed those things into something that is technology based. Basically, they made Big Hero fit into a slightly futuristic world in which people are still just people. And they did a really good job of it, too. The movie does a great job with the exposition of the story. It's so typical of movies these days to just skip the exposition entirely, so I really appreciate it when a film takes the time to provide a foundation for the story they want to tell. Without having a way to check the timing on the movie, I'm going to guess the first half hour or so is all exposition. Let me re-say what I just said before: I like that! Visually, the movie is incredible. Not just that it has great animation, but it has a great style. Actually, it looks a lot like The Incredibles, but that's not surprising considering that John Lasseter produced the movie. Plus, it has the best drunken robot scene ever. Okay, that may not be surprising since it's probably the only drunken robot scene ever, but, still, it's hilarious. The voice acting is adequate. There's nothing there to make any of it stand out except, maybe, for Scott Adsit, but it's hard to tell how much of that is him and how much is manipulation of his voice to make it work for Baymax. The villain has a really cool look. That's all I'm saying about that. I mean, I'd be freaked out to have someone like that coming after me. And the side characters work, too. It has all the ingredients it needs for me to love it. But I didn't. Don't get me wrong; I really liked it; I just didn't love it. And I can't really tell you why other than that I saw the movie playing out the way it was going to go well before it got there. However, that was an interesting experience in-and-of itself, because my kids made the logic jumps the movie wanted them to make so that they would be surprised by what was actually going on when it was revealed at the end. I had to bite my tongue not to spoil it for them. For instance, at one point, my son said something about who the bad guy was, and I almost said, "No, that's not who it is," but I managed to catch myself. I'm not really sure if that was the problem or not. It might also have been that the main emotional punch of the movie happens toward the beginning, so I had no catharsis at the end. Really, it's not that important. It's a really good movie. It's great, even. It's just not excellent. It's not a movie I left the theater wanting to see again, which, for me, is the hallmark of an excellent film. The short film at the beginning, though, that was awesome, and I'd love to see that again.

    “Big Hero 6” is, shot after shot, an intelligent and artful creation. There’s a scene in which the filmmakers convey a funeral taking place with a medium shot of black umbrellas opening. They pull back to show people standing at a cemetery in the rain and then dissolve to a post-funeral gathering, filmed from the outside of the house through rain-spattered windows. And all the while, the camera is slowly moving. At the same time, “Big Hero 6” makes full use of the animation medium. It takes place in the fictitious city of San Fransokyo, a mashup of San Francisco and Tokyo, with elevated trains and a pagoda design for the Golden Gate Bridge. It’s a pleasure just to ride the back of the camera as it swoops above these cleverly reimagined streets. And this is even before the story kicks in, which is a good one. Without giving anything away, it’s about the partnership between a teenage robotics prodigy and a home health care robot, who join forces to solve a crime. The robot is adorable. I know, it’s weird (and more than a little pathetic) to call something adorable that doesn’t really exist except as a computer rendering, but Baymax the robot truly is lovable — white, inflated, very fat, with a soothing, unthreatening voice (Scott Adsit) and a desire to help everyone. Baymax and Hiro (Ryan Potter) go off into the San Fransokyo streets to solve a mystery, and along the way they’re joined by a group of computer nerds, all experts in robotics. In future movies they will be known collectively as Big Hero 6, and they very well might become as annoying as the Fantastic Four. But the story of their origins makes for pleasant viewing.

    Disney Does it Again!

    I have to say I was a little skeptical as to whether or not this movie would be any good as this version of Big Hero 6 is not exactly like their comic book counterparts and I was expecting for the studio that produced it to stray very far away from the source material, which in alot of cases ruins movies for me. I must say that I was very pleasantly surprised. Most of the characters from the comic were used and acccurately portrayed within the film with the exception of a couple of characters. However, the changes to those characters never took away from the experience. The action and animation were great and the story was very well written. Also the character designs were pretty awesome as well, especially Go Go Tomago, Hiro, and Baymax. I found the dialogue betwen the characters to be very intersting and funny at times, especially Fred and his crazy banter. This is definitely a movie with a heart and it can be enjoyed by both kids and adults alike. The Bluray and DVD came in perfect condition and the digital copy is a nice bonus as well since I can watch the movie on my iTunes or my TV. All in all a great value and another classic Disney materpiece!

    This movie won the academy award for best animated film of the year. How this was accomplished is beyond me! Don't get me wrong, I like this movie a lot. There are certainly some very touching moments and the animation looks top-notch for the most part. However, there are also some serious flaws which I cannot overlook. The first goal of all motion pictures is to have a good story! The film makers forgot this rule and conceived a plot that is hard to follow for an adult film, let alone a child's film. And as usual, the animators overloaded the visuals with unnecessary non-stop action. The scenes with the "bad microbot army" morphing into various shapes are drab and not pleasing to the eye. However, the movie does manage to evoke emotion and heart. You will find yourself cheering, laughing, and crying at Baymax...a white blob with only two eyes! So, overall, this is actually a B+ effort from Disney. If you are looking for the best animated picture of the year, consider "How to Train Your Dragon 2," a rare sequel that is actually better than the first!

    Big Hero 6 transports us to the world of “San Fransokyo,” an east-meets-west futuristic city where young Hiro Hamada (Ryan Potter) and his big brother Tadashi (Daniel Henney) spend their days (and nights) inventing advanced robotics. However, where Tadashi works on robots that can help better the world, Hiro squanders his gift hustling for cash in the underground robot fighting circuit. Things change when Tadashi finally manages to inspire Hiro towards a greater goal: attending the robotics university where Tadashi and his four friends (Honey Lemon, Go Go, Wasabi and Fred) hatch brilliant new tech designs in their nerd lab think-tank. In the end, Big Hero 6 is family fun, action and adventure suited for any age (or gender). As stated, it represents the high potential of mixing Disney with Marvel, while still doing enough of its own thing to offer viewers a fresh journey and interesting characters to meet.

    Considered one of the first Disney/Marvel collaboration, the result is a heart-warming and humor-filled story that children and adults alike can enjoy and appreciate. The studio behind the positively received Frozen from last year was true to the comic source material and adeptly converted it into a emotionally driven story filled with loss, revenge, and redemption themes. The animation and 3D effects are undeniably top-notch. The fictional city of San Fransokyo brilliantly consisted of a mix of Western and Eastern inspirations and architecture. Colors were as vibrant as ever and all of the big action set pieces involving the nanobots were smoother than ever. I can see Baymax as the next generation of Disney mascots thanks to the superb comedic timing and overall huggable design. Already, this marshmallow man has made his way into various malls, theaters, and stores.

    movie itself is really great,lots of fun,very emotional,and a fun ride all the way though,the picture on the blu-ray and dvd versions are sharper and smoother than at the movies,and the discs are in a cool design. the extras themselves are pretty cool,one feature tells you more about how the adapted the original marvel manga to the movie,the deleted scenes are pretty neat despite only four deleted scenes. and the other extra content (including the Easter egg feature that you have to find as an Easter egg) a great movie,a great product,lots of cool bonuses and special features. and 150 DMR points. the exclusive best buy holographic cover is a nice touch,adds a nice flair and worth keeping the cover. product gets an 5/5 starts. my only bad comment is i wish they had some sort of audio commentary for the film. would of been cool to get more insight on the film process.
