The Husband and I finally saw Big Hero 6! This one is now on the to-be-added list in the movie collection. This decision came half way into the movie. Even though the movie is about losing someone close to you, Hero lost his big brother, this movie had us smiling and cheering for Hero and his “nerd” friends and reluctant superheroes.
The “low battery” scene in its entirety made me giggle. This was one of the promo scenes for the movie. Seeing everything related to the scene was like drinking a chocolate milkshake on a really hot summer day. It was satisfying, funny, and plausible.
Technology is a part of our society and, honestly, I wouldn’t mind having my own Waymax. He would be so helpful. He would be helpful every day. But I digress.
Waymax helps Hero learn to deal with the death of his big brother, and, while he is learning to do this Hero learns he really can feel good things again – like love for a robot friend, and all his other friends. The laughs and smiles out weigh the sorrow and sadness. If there is a child having to understand losing someone important in their lives, I believe this movie would be good to start the communication process.
See it. Enjoy it. Laugh.
Five out of five stars.
