| Very entertaining and overall well-made
Honestly, I didn't have very high expectations for 'Big Hero 6', considering that I'm usually not a fan of Marvel's works, but I was gladly proved wrong.

Story wise, 'Big Hero 6' is rather formulaic and not too outstanding, but it's still very entertaining due to the way it balances all aspects. You have everything: drama that's not over the top but still touching, thrilling action, great comedy, and some okay twists. And more importantly, they all mix together perfectly, so you'll never get bored or frustrated, and at the same time, you will feel connected with the characters as they deal with some mature conflicts rarely seen in recent Disney products. A huge part of this accomplishment is thanks to the character Baymax. The guy is amazingly likable, steals every scene he's in, and has great contributions to every part of the movie. When the movie needs drama, he provides the sensitivity and cuteness, when it needs action, he's the coolest, and when it needs comedy, he's the funniest. His voice acting by Scott Adsit is also great as he sounds both emotional and cute, despite the robotic voice effects.

The rest of the characters, however, are hit and miss. Hiro is cool, and I like the way he deals with grief: quite mature and not excessive, though his voice doesn't sound like a 14-year-old. The other two boys in the group are okay because they tend to break away from stereotypes. But the others, including the main villains, are just cliché and forgettable.

Visually, 'Big Hero 6' is very stunning, mainly due to the lively San Fransokyo and the impressive effects. Personally, I find some of the action scenes in this to be the most cinematic and thrilling I've ever seen in animation. All of the camera movements, slow-motions, and lighting and explosion effects easily rival the best live-action blockbusters out there. Moreover, the characters' visual designs are also more imaginative than other recent Disney products'. This is especially true for Baymax, who is surprisingly expressive despite the minimalistic looks.

'Big Hero 6' is no masterpiece, and it may not be up to the standards of Pixar's classics or Dreamworks' 'How to Train Your Dragon', but nonetheless, it's still a greatly entertaining and well-made movie. I also love that it still leaves a lot open for the sequels as I now really look forward to them.

Trivia

Akuma Island was originally going to be an abandoned military base where Yokai was going to steal a nuclear submarine to power the Portal. At one point a monster called the Entity was going to emerge from the portal and lay waste to San Fransokyo. But eventually the production decided that the Portal's purpose is for teleportation only.


Quotes

Ringleader: The winner, by total annihilation - Yamaaaa!
Yama: Who's next? Who has the guts to step into the ring, with Little Yama...
Hiro: Can I try? I have a robot. I built it myself.


Goofs

When the vehicle speedily crashes into the ocean, Hiro's seat belt is jammed. At the bed of the ocean, the viewers are shown Hiro attempting to unlock his seat belt. When Baymax surfaces with the rest of the characters, Hiro is no longer restrained by his seat belt without explanation.


Crazy Credits

At the very end of all of the credits, there is a scene between Fred and his superhero dad (a Stan Lee cameo). The Stan Lee credit runs after this special scene.


Alternate Versions

In the UK version BBC Radio 1 presenters and Youtubers Dan Howell (danisnotonfire) and Phil Lester (AmazingPhil) were given the roles of Male Technician 1 and 2. This version, however, did not end up in the UK home release.
