When The Going
Some of my favourite films to watch are animated ones. I love that these films often have something for both children and adults and thus, when I heard about Big Hero 6, I knew it was a film that I couldn’t wait to see. When the opportunity of an advance screening arose, I jumped at the chance. And I’m here to tell you all that I’m incredibly glad I did because this film was truly amazing.
This film follows Hero as he learns that there is a lot more to life than bot-fighting. It takes you on a journey of love, friendship, strength, grief and acceptance. It holds so many amazing messages for both children and adults that I could probably love it for that alone. But it is also a story with heart that will make you laugh until there are tears and then make you cry for real. It is the kind of film that will have you leaving the cinema feeling good and knowing that you’ve seen a worthwhile film. The writers and animators made something special in Big Hero 6.
Do You Hide
As with most animated movies, the characters in this film are full of flare. I loved Hero’s attitude to life at the beginning and admired the journey he took as the story continued. I liked that his character celebrated being a nerd throughout the film too, because this should be celebrated. But it is Baymax’s character that really pulls the story along. He is truly loveable and sweet – not usual characteristics for a robot! What makes him work so well is that he has an innocent childishness to him and it is the child (Hero) who helps him “grow” into his character. A superb story line if you ask me!
Or Fight Back
Big Hero 6 was a fantastic film that I really cannot wait to rewatch. It is great for all the family and is just a film that is full of heart. It captured me in so many ways and I could not stop thinking about it after it was all over. With cute, loveable and strong characters, and an exhilarating and exciting plot, it is hard not to love this film in all its glory. Add in great messages about siblings, grief, friendship and intelligence, and you have a golden film that I’m certain will be loved by all.
