|You must obey the adorableness!|
Well, went to the cinema yesterday to watch Big Hero 6, for once entering the cinema to watch a movie completely unprepared. Seen one silly trailer, told by a few random people on tumblr that it was good, and nothing more. I thought I was getting into a movie about robot fights but was pleasantly surprised.
It played with my expectations as I am used to the setting of the beginning of a movie sets the theme as a whole. It offered instead something completely different and much better. Every scenery was very pretty and never felt crowded in a bad way despite all the details everywhere you look.
The story comes in different layers leading up to the different happenings in a rather balanced way. But what is it really about?
It’s a story about grief, friendship, growing up, facing up to yourself and others. Growth, depression, family, robots, super heroes, comics. It’s a comedy with action and tragedy.
It is a surprisingly simple film yet not babying the audience and providing plenty of show-not-tell. I found no characters that disliked at all, none was over the top in the annoying way. All had their strengths, quirks and weaknesses which worked well off on one another. I loved their individual designs and personalities, it all just worked together perfectly.
It’s an entertaining watch for both kids and grow ups, but if you want something really deep and preachy about bigger subjects than you are represented with then you are better off with something else.
I definitely find it worth a rewatch should I get the chance. I know it’s not perfect or the greatest thing ever, it has its downs too but all the good makes up for it or it can easily be explained in a way that makes sense.
So, I can definitely recommend it, especially if you can find it in its original dub without the subs (I’m Danish, you have no idea how hard it is to find something to watch in the cinemas that haven’t gotten a terrible Danish dub or distracting subs).
