Big Hero 6 is the first Disney animated feature to come as a result of Disney's 2009 acquisition of Marvel. How is the film? Let's find out-
- I especially loved the first act of the film. I thought it was fantastic, funny and touching. I could really connect with Hiro and Tadashi, and I was sad to see him die. However, the film sorta devolved after that point. The villain was clear-cut from the beginning (no spoilers) but it was pretty obvious it was him.
- I felt that the main characters were underdeveloped, especially Fred, Wasabi, Honey Lemon and GoGo. I wanted more out of them and have character development out of them, which we only sorta got. I felt that the relationship between Baymax and Hiro was the highlight of the film, but Baymax's development felt awkward and forced. You don't really go "They're best friends!".
- Them becoming superheroes made no sense, they needed to transition into that naturally. Also, the movie felt against the 'superhero' ideal at the same time.
- The ending was sweet, but it was really predictable. I wish they would develop the villain more and see why he did what he did, and maybe have Hiro forgive him and try to help him rather than destroy him.
Overall, it was a decent film, but it felt rushed and underdeveloped.
