Hig Bero 6

I've heard decent things about this movie, so yeah, I was willing to check it out.

In Tokfrisco, a young genius is into bot fighting, but then his brother shows him a world were he can create big things. Then brother dies, and the healing bot the brother made attaches itself to the kid to help heal him. And there are villains and other heroes and stuff, but really it's about the kid coming to terms with his brother's loss, and losing others. (It certainly isn't about the original plot as I picked the major 'revelations' way before they were revealed.)

The big gimmick of this movie is the obvious big gimmick, that of Baymax, the giant white robot. Most of the movie is about him and the goofy stuff he does, and how he deals with the kid Hiro. [This movie looks to be set in San Francisco, but has a heavy Japanese influence.] The rest of the movie feels tacked on to give that an excuse to be. Not that it's bad, just that it just is. The revelations felt obvious because the movie felt like it wasn't trying very hard. (That, and it was Disney, so you knew some kind of amazing 'heart uplifting' moment was coming along.)

Just, please, don't make this another franchise that gets unnecessarily driven into the ground...

You should really track down the comics to see how different this is from the source material.
As a Disney/Marvel work it does not inspire confidence.

(but as a Disney movie it is much as I'd expect, good but sappy)

Read the original comic? Like I'd ever do that!
