With a combination of both science and fantasy, Big Hero 6 is a must-see movie filled with action scenes and touching moments.

After seeing the preview for Big Hero 6, I knew I had to be one of the first to see it. The idea of a giant inflatable robot squeezed into a suit of armor got my interest, and I had high expectations for the movie. I’m glad to say that it exceeded my expectations and was well worth the price of the tickets.

The way the producers incorporated technology of robotics made the movie cool and exciting.

What I liked most about this movie was that it had more than one genre to it. There wasn’t an action scene every 5 minutes or  a tragic plot twist that occurs just as it seems that the main character’s life is starting to improve. It also wasn’t one of those comedies that starts off funny, but then, as the plot progresses, slowly starts to enter that clichè zone of cheesy jokes and bad comedy routines.

Throughout the movie there were several scenes that got the audience and me laughing out loud because they were hilarious and original. Overall, this was a great movie.

Big Hero 6 (produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios and Walt Disney Pictures) is set in the tech-savvy city of San Fransokyo where everything and everyone seems high-tech.

Hiro Hamada is a fourteen-year-old robotics prodigy who graduated from high school at the age of thirteen. He is a genius when it comes to creating, upgrading and modifying robots.

His older brother Tadashi is also into robotics, and engineers a giant inflatable robot named Baymax. Tadashi created Baymax as a healthcare provider whose main purpose is to provide first-aid to people in need.

When a mysterious villain threatens the peace within the city, Hiro gives Baymax an upgrade, and together with a team of peculiar engineers, they pursue the masked villain.

This movie is great for laughs and fun for the whole family. I give this film 5 out of 5 stars and recommend seeing Hiro and Baymax in action for yourselves.
