Big Hero Six, an animated film released in 2014, has become another new box office hit after The Walt Disney Animation Studios released the blockbuster, ‘Frozen’ one year ago.
The movie is about a teenage genius, Hiro Hamada, who finds his brother’s death wasn’t what most people considered an accident; something more horrible is hidden behind all those coincidences. With his new friends, and a robot called Baymax originally designed for healthcare by Hiro’s brother, they are going on an adventure to crack the case and beat the evil to save their hometown, San Fransokyo.
I think this is a great and touching movie for all ages. The plot is all good, and I especially love the smooth CGI motions and wonderful visual effects, all the qualities are great. But there’s a special point I’d like to mention — the beat-the-evil part. In fact, instead of saying “Let’s go save the city," it’s more like going on a revenge mission for Hiro’s dead brother to me at first. But the movie explained that: there’s a part where the nerds stopped Hiro from killing the villain, and Hiro was initially mad, but then realized what he was going to do was wrong. Like what British author Oscar Wilde once said, ’Hatred blinds people’. Hiro realized that he doesn’t only catch the villain just for the sake of revenge, it’s for the justice. Even if he really killed the bad guys, that wouldn’t make any difference. After all, it’s just an eye for an eye kind of revenge. Nothing can bring Tadashi alive again; Lots of time we are just like Hiro, doing stupid things because of our rage, but the result often doesn’t do us any good.
