Action, comedy, heart, and a setting that's fit for a otaku's pipe dream - Disney takes things to the next level, loved it! Cannot wait for a sequel. (Also look for Stan Lee's surprise cameo after the film, too.)
Though I have apprehension about all nowadays blockbuster and family fare being: a) Marvel, and b) "3D" animation, but this was refreshing. Great style and aesthetic - highly colourful with good sense of humour and an overall playful atmosphere. Harmless and non-essential, but a lot of fun.
Baymax is charming but the screenplay is aggressively, contemptibly nonsensical and lazy even for a children's film. Incoherent worldbuilding, unlikable characters, boilerplate plot, a villain that seems to literally have no discernible motive. Naturally, it won an Academy Award.
**1/2. The half star for the rescue scene which is an homage to Richard Fleischer's Fantastic Voyage (1966) and a documentary about the fertilization of an ovum by a marshmallow disguised as Iron Man. The rest of the movie is childish and sadly mercantile. Already forgotten.
Awesome animated adventure! The visuals are stunning and the whole look of the movie is really cool. The story is what it is, but the subtext about loss and grief was nicely handled in my opinion. Best superhero movie since Nolan put Batman to sleep.
Nerds becoming superheroes cliché, whatever. For a long time that a Marvel-inspired movie wasn't just about fighting the bad guy, I am completely satisfied with my care. And welcome Baymax, you're in my heart robot shelf, right next to WALL·E.
Flawed but engaging Disney tale that tells a tale of scientific discovery and creation with the warning of application both good and bad. Where the film runs into trouble is with its 'revenge' sequence that doesn't really play to the small fry the film is marketed to. Voice casting is fair and their is amusement throughout but it doesn't measure up to other recent offers.
