Alonso Duriade at TheWrap, gave it an 89 grade, stating: “Sweet and sharp and exciting and hilarious, Big Hero 6 comes to the rescue of what’s become a dreaded movie trope — the origin story — and launches the superhero tale to pleasurable new heights.”
Michael O’Sullivan from the Washington Post, gave it an 88 score. He said: “It’s a movie that’s as fun to watch as it is funny. But the real appeal of Big Hero 6 isn’t its action. It’s the central character’s heart.”
Keith Staskiewicz at Entertainment Weekly, gave it an 83 score, saying: “At times, Big Hero 6 gets a little too noisy for its own good, but that never manages to drown out its many quieter charms.”
Betsy Sharkey at the Los Angeles Times, gave it an 80 grade, saying: “Amid all the nerd-inspired firepower that gives the movie much of its flash, the big boy’s droning tone proves to be the film’s stealth weapon, perfect for pulling off highly targeted comic strikes.”
Manohla Dargis from The New York Times, gave it an 80 grade, claiming: “Big Hero 6 is good enough to transcend its blah ending and to make the case that every superhero story should be entirely animated.”
Elizabeth Weitzman over at the New York Daily News, gave it an 80 grade. She stated: “Big Hero 6 was executive produced by Pixar guru John Lasseter. You can see the influence in the high quality, from the appealing 3D animation to the unusually sharp story and script (a cooperative effort credited to seven people).”
Peter Travers at Rolling Stone, gave it a 75 score, saying: “This one’s a winner. And Baymax, baby, call your agent. You’re about to be a household name.”
Susan Wloszczyna at RogerEbert.com, gave it a 75 grade, saying: “An action adventure that puts brain ahead of brawn as a valued commodity is always reason to celebrate. Add in the considerable heart that Baymax contributes (with elements borrowed from both “WALL-E” and “Up”), and you have a winner.”
Claudia Puig at USA Today, gave it a 75 grade, claiming: “The most endearing character in Disney’s animated superhero animated movie is a one-man Affordable Care Act. (Make that a one-robot ACA.)”
Tom Russo from the Boston Globe, gave it a 75 score. He stated: “A rousing movie that’s satisfyingly infused with traditional Disney sentiment.”
Mick LaSalle over at the San Francisco Chronicle, gave it a 75 grade, claiming: “The visuals are splendid. Even close-ups of face and hair are something to marvel at.”
Michael Phillips at the Chicago Tribune, gave it a 75 grade. He stated: “Without making a big deal out of it, Big Hero 6 features a shrewdly balanced and engaging group of male and female characters of various ethnic backgrounds. It’d be nice to live in a world where this wasn’t worth a mention, but it is. And yet the movie belongs to the big guy.”
Peter Debrudge from Variety, gave it a 70 score, stating : “After establishing its fresh and relatable origin story, the movie gets bogged down with a relatively generic villain’s power-hungry schemes. Still, there’s enough that’s new and different about Big Hero 6 to get excited about, especially for those still too young for Marvel’s more intense live-action fare.”
Lastly, Kyle Smith at the New York Post, gave it a 50 score, stating: “Big Hero 6 even has a title that sounds like a product ordered off the takeout menu of the type of restaurant that recombines a few elements in many ways. That could work fine, if any of the ingredients were particularly flavorful.” Stay tuned. Also, get your favorite Movie stuff, and more by Clicking Here.
