“Big Hero 6 may not be the most innovative film to come out of Disney but, it will delightfully entertain and charm kids and adults alike! ”
Disney, and its animated world, have always been an endearing experience. Its enchanting cartoon creations etched indelibly in the mind's recess of one's childhood. But with traditional cartoon format giving way to computer generated cyber creations, the inner soul has given way to more plasticity in the animations that populate Disney's digital offerings.
One such fine example is Big Hero 6, the 3D racy, rollicking, roller-coaster action comedy, seeking audiences' indulgence in the adventurous of its nerdy, geek robotics Hiro. Despite the best intentions of the creators and the man hours by the animators, Big Hero 6, at least, for this avowed Disney buff, turned out a cacophonous, calamitous outing than creative, captivating and charming cinema.
Set in the fictional Hybrid City of San Fransokyo (San Francisco-Tokyo), Big Hero 6 has Hiro and his rotund, nursing, nudging robot Baymax, take on the vile, villainous mystery man, responsible for the death of his big brother Tadeshi.
Inventive, Big Hero 6 is. But, innocence personified, it is not. Where pure fun filled antics and friendly bout bantering was norm, it has now given way to more vicious, violent battles, one cannot associate with Disney. It seems like naive charms of childhood has given way to more brawny adulthood.
Microbots have taken over other endearing comic mates, though Big Hero 6 too has panoply of whiz kids in Go Go Tamago, Wasabi, Honey Lemon and Fred. Bayman, too obese for comfort, but big hearted buddy, as emotional soundboard, comes across as creature with heart but no soul to find empathy with.
In trying to infuse digital life into Marvel characters, Disney has definitely lost the Midas touch of yore. The language too more jargon and jarring than human, identifiable and empathic, one is so used to despite the different garb Disney's various creations donned over years.
Feisty, fast and furious, Big Hero 6, is a film, which marrying the marvels of digital technology with animation, comes across flat and futile, than engaging, ensemble entertainer. Sorry Disney this one's not for pure bred traditional animation fan. Somehow, despite just 103 minutes, it turns out a tiresome watch.
