I'm a massive fan of animation and will watch any new one that comes along, meaning I have seen a lot of animated films to compare this one to. As a whole, the animated films of 2014 have been pretty damn good, The Lego Movie especially. I've been very excited for this film for a long time now, especially with Disney's recent run of films. Sure, I'm not a fan of Wreck-It-Ralph, but I can understand those who love it. Big Hero 6 doesn't quite live up to the standards set by last year's Frozen, nor does it live up to the expectations set by the damn awesome advertising on Disney's behalf, even if they didn't really push the whole Marvel comics thing. While I was a tad disappointed, Big Hero 6 is still a rocking time at the movies and it's a film I will most certainly be watching again.
Not only are the on-screen visuals amazing, but the off-screen voice work is rather impressive too. With an ecstatic cast that includes such notables as Maya Rudolp, T.J. Miller, Jamie Chung and Damon Wayans Jr... wait, wait wait, what? Okay, the cast may not be too amazing, but hey, they work, and for the most part they're unrecognisable, which is a brilliant thing. But what's better than the mildly fine celebrity cast is in fact the not-so-recognisables, including Ryan Potter, Scott Adsit, Daniel Henney and a post credits cameo that was unbelievably awesome.
To sum up, Big Hero 6 may have a ten to fifteen minute sequence where the quality drops, but as far as the rest of the film goes, it's pretty damn awesome. Full of humour, emotion, excellent voice work and mesmerising animation, this film is very entertaining.
