A young boy Hiro attends his brother Tadashi’s science fair to showcase his latest invention Baymax, a health care companion. After a disaster strikes at the science fair, Hiro teams up with four other students to find out who caused the disaster and bring the criminal to justice.
At the beginning of the movie, we see younger brother Hiro, in an illegal robot fighting match. As the officials break the robot fighting, older brother Tadashi come in for Hiro’s rescue and bring him home before they get caught. Right off the bat, we find out that he is a prodigy considering his skills in the match and his small appearance. Also, we see the strong bond between the brothers and that they are inseparable. The movie then introduces the tech school Tadashi attends and he invites Hiro to attend the science fair, hoping Hiro will change his mind about attending the school. Hiro meets his close friends Fred, Go-go, Wasabi & Honey Lemon. The writers and cast did a great job with the personalities we see and hear that the audience can distinct between.
What is great about this movie is that it leads a mystery throughout with a masked man who catches the science fair on fire, thus killing two people. Throughout the movie, Hiro, Baymax and students of San Fransokyo Institute of Technology work together to serve justice to the evil mastermind who caused the chaos. The movie includes lore that keep the audience interested to watch the entire movie like finding an abandoned factory on an island near a city, and backstories to some characters.
Other than the mysteries in the movie, the comedy is a reason the movie shines. From physical comedy, dialogue, or both, the comedy’s timing in the film is perfect. We see characters as strong, like Wasabi, but we see a different side of him when danger’s around. Also, Baymax’s monotone as a robot makes for great comedy during serious or over dramatic scenes, like when he and Hiro try to sneak back in the house without Aunt Cass. Although, the sentimental moments of the movie are some of the best in children’s movies with grieving over and losing close friends and family. No matter if the movie sets audiences laughing or crying, they will leave the theater satisfied.
Lastly, the overall setting of the movie is fantastic. With the cities of San Francisco from the United States and Tokyo from Japan mashed together, we get San Fransokyo. The look of San Fransokyo is its own character with an energy that ties in the characters and their personalities. This movie is a rollercoaster of emotions and when the ride is over, viewers will be wanting more.
