1. This is the most pleasant surprise I've seen at the movies in 2014. From the cutesy trailer and the stupid title, it's like Disney doesn't want anybody to know what the movie really is.
2. It's about a 14-year-old genius named Hiro Hamada who lives in the city of San Fransokyo. He's out of high school, bored, and thinks college is for nerds. He spends his time in the city's battle robot underground. Hiro's older brother, Tadashi, is a robotics engineering student who has invented a new kind of robot named Baymax that specializes in health care.
3. After some bad things happen, Hiro reluctantly teams up with Baymax and Tadashi's friends to stop someone from stealing Hiro's own invention of swarming microbots. But that quest opens up bigger problems.
4. There are themes of death and loneliness in the film that aren't obvious from the way the movie is marketed. I was more emotionally invested in the movie than I expected to be.
5. The filmmakers consulted about six universities and robotics research labs for help on this movie. I'm pretty sure this is the only animated film I've ever seen that uses the term "tungsten carbide".
6. The character of Baymax was inspired by actual research in a new field called "soft robotics". And the swarming microbots in the film are also based on real research and inventions. Of course, the movie takes those ideas and then leaves reality behind.
7. The animation in this film is so incredibly detailed that some scenes look almost like real life. The 3D is also worth the extra price, if you like that sort of thing.
8. The movie unabashedly promotes science, technology, engineering, and education. It makes the point that some problems are too tough to solve through brute force; sometimes you have to think your way to a solution.
9. If you are expecting an "aww, that's cute and funny" superhero movie, then you will be disappointed. Don't get me wrong, this is a fun movie for the family, but it's also a real movie with real issues, emotions, and problems. It's the most thoughtfully fun animated film I've seen in a long time.
Review of Movie:
Inspired by a comic by Marvel of the same name, Big Hero 6 is another great movie from Disney. From the diverse characters to the exceptionally beautiful world that the animators created, it is quite obvious why this film has received many awards including the Oscar for Best Animated Feature Film. The main character is 14 year old Hiro Hamada who is not unlike any other 14 year old...except that he is a genius in the world of robotics and graduated high school at 13. Big Hero 6 is a great film for all ages. It has a great balance of comedy and seriousness that allows it to portray very heavy topics in an entertaining manner. This film teaches children about loss, friendship, and courage in a way I've never seen before. The characters are diverse and entertaining while at the same time never taking away from the bigger picture. Points given for two great female role models found in Honey Lemon and Go-Go, as well as a racially diverse cast. My only complaint is that none of the female characters talk to each other. However, that still doesn't take away from the countless positive points that this movie promotes.
Brief overview: WARNING, CONTAINS SPOILERS
Hiro is very close to his brother, Tadashi, as their parents died 10 years ago. Tadashi, fearing that his brother is going to waste his gift, takes Hiro to 'the nerd lab' where he and his friends (Wasabi, Go-Go, Honey Lemon, and Fred) develop the latest in robotic technology in the hopes of inspiring his little brother to do something with his big brain. Tadashi's ruse worked, and shortly after Hiro is given a letter of acceptance to the same college as his brother. Unfortunately, there is an accident in which Tadashi dies, leaving Hiro alone with his aunt. In the aftermath of Tadashi's death, Hiro is trying to cope with the grief but seems completely uninterested in life until he finds Baymax, the robotic project that his brother was working on. With Baymax at his side, Hiro uncovers clues that hint that the accident that killed Tadashi wasn't an accident at all, but deliberate. The duo teams up with Tadashi's friends from school to solve the mystery and ultimately help give Hiro closure.
