I’m going to go ahead and say that, of all the Disney movies I’ve seen in the last 10 years, this is definitely the best one.

This is my first review of a movie currently in theatres. I went just this afternoon with my brother and sisters (13, 13, and 11) and it’s the first time I’ve ever gone to see a movie where a good 80% of the audience were kids under the age of 15. This movie was mostly small children and their reluctant parents, which was depressing to see, honestly. (I’m pretty sure I’m the only adult that laughed just as hard as all the little children in the auditorium because apparently becoming a parent means losing all sense of humor. So sad.)

Big Hero 6, based of the Marvel comic of the same name, tells the story of a 14 year old boy named Hiro living in the city of San Fransokyo. He’s a genius, graduated high school at 13, and he fights robots in illegal underground robot fights. He and a medical robot his brother invented named Baymax, along with his friends from the San Fransokyo Institute of Technology, are trying to fight a villain who, after a tragedy befalls the city, stole Hiro’s invention and is using it in a bad way. Hiro’s friends include a speed addict named Go Go Tomago, a chemist named Honey Lemon, a neat freak named Wasabi, and Fred, the science enthusiast who named them all these nicknames even though he isn’t even a scientist like they are.

This movie had me laughing the whole way through, with the only exception being when I was busy crying. This movie has more heart than a LOT of Disney movies (which is saying a lot) and it handles a pretty intense situation in a way that really shows the way humans grow after tragedy befalls their lives. The animation is absolutely beautiful. Possibly the best I’ve ever seen. It’s a really great movie for kids and for adults alike.

For the FIRST TIME EVER, I honestly cannot think of anything that could have made this movie better than it is. You’re going to see something that you may never see again on this blog:

My Rating: 10/10
