Review: Press Gang’s Ankita Goswami gives her view on action movie Big Hero 6
PUBLISHED: 12:00 08 March 2015
I recently watched Big Hero 6 and I’d have to say that it was the best film that I have watched in 2015.
The movie is based on a Marvel comic book and is hilarious, fun and action-packed, as well as heartwarming, from the very beginning to the end.
The story is set in a place called San Fransokyo (which is a mix of San Francisco and Tokyo) and is mainly about a 14-year-old robotics genius named Hiro Hamada , who learns to take advantage of his amazing talent thanks to his brilliant brother, Tadashi, and his friends.
Tadashi has been working on a personal health care robot called Baymax – a huggable, marshmallow type robot that walks and talks.
When they face the threat of a mysterious masked man, this twist in the story makes Hiro look for help in his closest companion, Baymax, and changes the group of friends into a team of awesome new superheroes determined to solve the mystery.
I thought this movie had very nice animation and the setting is quite interesting as it seems to be set in the future as there is cool, hi-tech equipment.
It is the first Marvel/Disney mash-up and includes the action from Marvel and the emotion and humour from Disney movies.
The movie explores the idea of friendship, brotherhood and discovering your true potential and talents.
I would highly recommend anyone, no matter what age, to watch this film.
