BIG HERO 6 opens in theaters TODAY and I am beyond thrilled to finally be able to share with you my BIG HERO 6 Movie Review! 🙂 A few weeks ago, my family and I had the opportunity to have attended an advanced screening of Big Hero 6. If that wasn’t cool enough, I also had the opportunity to interview one of the Big Hero 6 voices: Genesis Rodriquez AKA Honey Lemon. In the last years, we have fallen in love with several Disney movies, in 2012 it was Wreck it Ralph and last year’s box office hit: Disney Frozen, this year we fell in love with Big Hero 6!
Big Hero 6 tells the story of robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada (voice of Ryan Potter) and it is sets in the futuristic city of San Fransokyo. After a devastating & heartbreaking event Hiro turns into Baymax (created by Hiro’s older brother, Tadashi) and his close friends adrenaline junkie Go Go Tomago (voice of Jamie Chung), neatnik Wasabi (voice of Damon Wayans Jr.), chemistry whiz Honey Lemon (voice of Genesis Rodriguez) and fanboy Fred (voice of T.J. Miller).
How do I know you will instantly become a fan of Big Hero 6? For starters, Big Hero 6 not only will appeal to robotics fans (both young & old) everywhere. But, who can ignore the huggable and bigger-than-life character that is Baymax! Baymax was designed & programmed to be the perfect healer both physical & emotionally, and his comedic timing is just as he is, perfectly loveable. The film has many things to enjoy beyond the hysterical & funny punch lines & funny jokes. The 3-D graphics are amazing, the look of the city of Fransokyo are beyond realistic (it is eye candy) & Baymax’s flying scenes are very well executed, plus his “hulk-like” fist is beyond cool. Oh wait, let’s not forget the rest of the characters that complete the soul of this film, characters such as Fred & Honey Lemon, give the movie another dimension both seriously and comically. In typical Disney fashion, Big Hero 6’s underlying plot is about family and friendship, this is one of the main reason I love Disney movies. However, Big Hero 6 main messages that are passes onto our kids are great, such as: being smart is cool, girls can be super smart, and don’t harm others. I can tell you that both my family and I loved this movie, the kids haven’t stopped talking about Baymax, Hiro and the Big Hero 6 heroes since the day we saw it. Big Hero 6 made me cry a lot, however, I do cry at every movie but in my book that makes for a great movie! 🙂 Go see Big Hero 6 on theaters today and come back and share with us your experience with it.
