Every once in a while I and a few friends go and see a movie. During this month, we decided that we would go and see the movie “Big Hero 6.” We were not disappointed.

“Big Hero 6” is the latest movie from Walt Disney Animation Studios, which also created last year’s favorite movie of “Frozen.” The story is that of Hiro Hamada (Ryan Potter) and his journey to find the person that caused his brother’s, Tadashi (Daniel Henney), death after Hiro presented a project to one of Tadashi’s professors. Hiro looks for a man in a Kabuki mask who stole the project after they blew up the place the meeting had been held in. Luckily, he has on his side four college students and marshmallow-like robot named Baymax (Scott Adsit).

Sitting in the theater, I was not sure what I was going to expect. I had seen the commercials, but I was unsure of what would happen. As the movie began (as did thievery of popcorn), I started to relax as the Disney short “Feast” came on, alerting us that the movie would soon start.

“Feast” itself was very cute. It is about a dog, Winston, that is brought off the streets into the home of a man who seems to have all the same troubles in romance that we deal with everyday. We watch as this “classic” love story play out before our eyes. It makes us want to laugh and cry all at the same time.

Then, came on “Big Hero 6” and from the very first few moments of the movie, I was laughing. The comedy is absolutely hysterical. It seems to be the one-liners in this movie that steal your laughs and the conversations between characters that give you those “Awwwww” moments. It seemed like the voice actors were all perfect for their parts.

The action sequences are fantastic as well. The microbots created by Hiro are simply amazing and are great during action sequences. Sometimes, you really feel like you are about to be swallowed up by them. The suits that are made as well, are very impressive, and Baymax especially has some pretty amazing sequences in the suit, such as when he’s flying and when he learns to fight.

Overall this is a great movie for people of all ages. It is a very family orientated movie and is great to see over the holidays! “Big Hero 6” is rated PG and runs 102 minutes.
