What Should Parents Look Out For In Big Hero 6?
Language – It is more along the lines of words and phrases that children would use to make funof each other than anything that would be considered profane.
Violence – There were a few fights scenes where there was some punching and kicking. There were also a few explosions that occurred and some of characters were harmed.
What Did I Think About Big Hero 6?
If I only needed four words to describe this movie, they would be “cutest superhero movie ever!”
This movie was funny, witty, and yes, very, very cute.
Why am I going overboard on the cuteness factor where Big Hero 6 is concerned? It is mainly because of Baymax, the healthcare robot Hiro’s older brother, Tadaschi, created for his robotics project that Hiro uses to help solve the mystery he is trying to solve in this film. From the moment Baymax is on the screen, he is an instant hit with movie-goers as he is this large, white and cuddly robot that is looking out for Hiro and his friends. It is also its willingness to please and learn that captured my heart.
It was easy to identify with Hiro. He is an extremely intelligent teen who is a bit impulsive, and has his world turned upside-down. It was great to see Hiro learn from Baymax and his friends about making the right choices and putting his vast knowledge to good use. Hiro’s friends were fun to watch as well. Each of them had a specific characteristic that is needed in a group of friends. Since they were all intelligent in their own way, they were all instrumental in Hiro’s journey throughout this movie. They were also funny, and I thought it was great of Disney to show that “nerds” do not all look and act as they have been portrayed in other entertainment mediums.
The animation in the film was great to look at while watching the film. The way the animators constructed the hair, Baymax and the background was so good. I like when there is a lot of detail given to certain aspects of a film, and how well they blend together on the screen. There were times that I was pointing things out to my daughter and my friend who joined us for the screening, noting how much we liked how they were designed and how gorgeous some of the scenes were to view.
I rated Big Hero 6 a 5 out of 5! I was wowed and laughing my way through this film! It is great for the whole family to watch, and there are some good themes and lessons that you kids can learn about in this movie. Finally, you will want to stay until the end of the credits, as you find out something about one of Hiro’s friends!
