Family Movie Review: Big Hero 6

The best thing about animated movies these days, is that they are as much for adults as they are for children. Big Hero 6, based on original Marvel characters, opened in theaters last Friday.  It's about an orphaned boy-genius named Hiro whose robotic invention lands him a spot in the same prestigious technology university his brother attends.  However, the story quickly takes off when Hiro's brother tragically dies.

The only comfort to Hiro during this tremendous time of loss is his brother's very own robotic creation, Baymax, whose sole purpose is to be the best health care provider possible (yes, I'm serious!)  He will stop at nothing to ensure the physical and mental health of Hiro.  And, when distraught Hiro goes after the villain that stole his invention, Baymax becomes a very unlikely and, unquestionably, the most adorable hero ever! Your children will love him! I loved him!!

From car chases to high-flying acrobatics, this movie is packed with action, plus, tons of laughs.  However, I am not going to lie to you.  It also tugged on the heart strings.  In fact, at one point in the movie, (promise, no spoilers) the packed theater went completely quiet and there were definitely some teary-eyes (mine included.)

My 10-year-old son and I thoroughly enjoyed this movie, and there were several teenagers in the theater as well who were NOT there with younger siblings.  Like I said, this movie is a great watch for all appropriate audiences.  The film is rated PG for "action and peril, some rude humor, and thematic elements."
