For a marshmallow shaped robotic health care assistant that seems it had one Big Mac too many, Baymax makes for a very endearing sidekick. I expect the robot dolls for Baymax to do good business come the gift giving season. The publicity blitzkrieg over the past couple of months had many of the tots believeing that the bots were cuddly, snuggle buddies and the movie would be a big, squishy, celluloid fest. The first fifteen minutes had many of them worried. Two orphan brothers are being brought up by ditzy aunt in a SanFrancisco Toko hybrid city, the younger brother (the protagonist) and a 14 year old hitting puberty boy genius and not exactly the same age as the audience that had bought the popcorn. The children in the audience are now staring in alarm at the screen as it is quite clear that the elder brother , a uni student at the robotic department is going to die saving his mentor from a fire. Meanwhile he has introduced his younger brother Hiro to his friends and a dream to join him in the same university (this Hiro is about to accomplish with his remarkable microbot invention at the annual university exhibition) . But the tragic fire at the university has apparently killed Tadashi and his mentor, Dr. Callaghan.
The children in the audience were really impressed by the microbots that Hiro is controlling by a neural transmitter, I had already watched Enthiran so the giant fist of microbots and receding increasing towers were a massive case of deja vu. Apparently it is the microbots that are behind Hiro's current loss. It could be that the evil Alistair Krei, owner of a famous robotics company, wanted to buy his invention, before Hiro turned him down on Callaghan's behest, who clearly is nursing a big grudge.
So is Krei the mysterious man behind the Kabuki mask (freaking out the children alert) behind an army of microbots that are up to a no-good-will-come-out of this enterprise? Will Baymax and Tadashi's friends help Hiro find closure and attain good emotional health? For Baymax, even upgraded Baymax, does not forget his karma--and that is to heal people--and not just assist them in their vendetta.
Watch Big Hero 6 , it aint the best filly in Disney's stable, but the children will be OK. There is a fair bit of loss, violence, and the younger kids might not take kindly to watch an evil figure in a kabuki mask hunting down their heroes, but I think that they will survive! And it helps that the kids have the Baymax character who is teaching them a valuable lesson about dealing with feeling of loss, about reaching out to friends and the power of a good hug.
Ok a robot army and now a jadoo ki jhappi. Add to that an oprhan taking his murdered brother's revenge. Now where have I seen all this before?
