Big Hero 6

Last night I was thinking about one of my friends kids birthday, and so rung her to ask if I could treat them to the movies as surprise for the kids.  I had seen the trailer for Big Hero 6, so we met up for lunch and then took the kids to the cinema.  Like most Pixar/Disney movies it is so very clever, visually beautiful and with humour that appeals to both kids and adults.

Hiro is a bright young teenager who decides to follow his older brother into a university course specialising in robotics.  After a tragic accident he ends up looking after his brothers project, and searches for someone who has stolen his research with the aid of his new friends.  So lots of moral lessons and themes are packed into this movie, grieving, friendship, puberty, education, science, technology  all manage to be talked about without being too preachy.

It was nice to look over and see two young faces smiling and enjoying the movie.  I think they would give it a 4/5.   Not too scary.
