BIG HERO 6

SHARE

(2014) ★★★

Sky Movies Box Office: PREMIERE Monday 25 May, 6.00am and 14.30pm and 18.15pm

Ryan Potter voices teen science prodigy Hiro, bonding with super-sized healthcare robot Baymax (30 Rock’s Scott Adsit) after the death of big brother Tadashi. Baymax was Tadashi’s final invention, an inflatable Stay Puft marshmallow man made in huggable vinyl. Happy landings seem assured, then, in a Disneytoon moving swiftly through the streets of San Fransokyo (a futuristic city down the road from Blade Runner’s Los Angeles). The villain is a threatening caped figure in a kabuki mask. His weapon of mass destruction is an army of microbots in a story that dampens down the humour and amps up the darkness as it goes along. Fortunately, our hero Hiro teams with a van load of Scooby Doo cohorts, including school mascot Fred: “And so the origin story begins!” Fred’s voiced by T.J. Miller, Silicon Valley’s irredeemable Erlich and the only intentionally funny element in Transformers: Age of Extinction. This odd-duck diversion might be somewhat less than Brad Bird’s The Incredibles. But it’s preferable to Wreck-It Ralph’s nudge and wink.

Certificate: PG
