Disney’s BIG HERO SIX—a mixture of superhero team origin story, a boy and his robot, and revenge story—never hits that sweet spot of clever that is expected in today’s animated films. Entertaining and sometimes funny, the film is about Hiro (Ryan Potter) and his brother’s robot, Baymax (Scott Adslt), along with his brother’s four hi-tech innovating co-workers, banding together to find and stop Tadashi’s (Hiro’s brother) killer from exacting his own revenge. Baymax, the Disney’s seasonal kids toy is more cuddly than cute, and brings the film’s only moments of humor. Overall, the animation’s biggest failing is that is seems all too familiar.
