Big Hero 6

Time Out says

3 out of 5 stars

For the past few years, Disney has been reinventing its style along two lines: the conscientious princess play of ‘Tangled’ and ‘Frozen’ alongside the more modern sensibility of movies like ‘Wreck-It Ralph’ and now this one. ‘Big Hero 6’ has been adapted from an obscure Marvel comic, telling the story of Hiro (Ryan Potter), a teen robotics genius who learns to use his brainpower for good by assembling a science-driven superhero team, including a pudgy, huggable nurse robot called Baymax (Scott Adsit), programmed only for gentle helping and healing.

‘Big Hero 6’ should delight kids, but for adults it feels a little less unique than ‘Ralph’ or ‘Frozen’. Still, the animation is fluid and inventive, balancing action and slapstick well, and it’s an enjoyable diversion from a studio that usually offers more.
