Big Hero 6 Movie Review | Safe for Kids? #BigHero6
Something BIG has just hit theaters today. And I can’t wait to share my latest movie love. Going in, I knew the movie was going to be amazing. After my Big Hero 6 Preview on my Disney media trip, the sneak peeks of the movie definitely perked my interest. Just the amazing graphics alone were enough! But my husband on the other hand, he actually wasn’t excited to see this movie at all. Did Big Hero 6 exceed his expectations? Is the PG rating safe for your little kids to see? All that and more reasons to take your family to see the latest Disney Animated Film, in the Big Hero 6 Movie Review.
To quote my husband, this movie was “amazingly surprising, in a good way.” I’d have to whole heartedly agree. While I did get to preview some amazing footage in L.A., it didn’t quite compare to piecing together the storyline during the film. Experiencing Hiro’s teen cockiness, his pain over his brother’s death, the strong bond of friendship with the loveable Baymax, and watching the full story unfold and fully appreciating the amazing graphics in 3D, we were all just blown away.
There’s definitely a little something for everyone in this movie. Humor that both parents and kids can enjoy (oh yes, my 6 year old was laughing the LOUDEST in the theater), a touching story, and action in every turn, this is not your typical “Asian animated film.” Disney really took Big Hero 6 to another level of awesome. A loveable squishable robot named Baymax, some cool nerdy gadgets, hilarious side kick friends, a bad guy identity reveal, and a classic Disney happy ending (with a twist), your family will love watching this movie together, again and again.
That PG Rating
Parents definitely want to know about that PG rating. It’s certainly a big question mark when it comes to taking little ones, especially ones like mine (age 6 years and almost 2). Is Big Hero 6 like a Disney Frozen PG rating or is this film in another realm of ratings that parents should be concerned about? It received it’s rating for “action and peril, some rude humor, and thematic elements.” I honestly didn’t catch any rude humor that was memorable, though there definitely are moments when Hiro is acting rude. The action and “bad guy” fighting scenes are definitely something that parents are going to want to pre-screen. There’s no blood, but certainly some fist swinging, crazy technological weapons, battle sequences with a creepy bad guy and a “scary” Baymax moment. But at the heart of that PG rating, in my opinion, gears more towards the death of Hiro’s brother, Tadashi. Hiro loses his brother during the movie and would certainly have any little kid asking “what happened.” So if you’re not wanting to explain the idea that the brother dies in a building fire explosion….then perhaps this is not the movie for you.
Don’t forget to FEAST on the latest Disney Short!
And if you needed any other reason to go see this movie, you’re going to LOVE the amazing new movie short, FEAST! With the focus of food and the clever visuals that will have your family, laughing, crying and in awe for the those few precious minutes, I seriously could watch this short over and over. It’s so good!
***Make sure to stay all the way through the credits of the movie for a surprise little ending scene. Trust me, definitely worth holding that pee break, especially for those Marvel fans 🙂
