Ryan Potter voices a teen tech prodigy who inherits a lovable robot in this delightful animated adventure.
Looking like a walking marshmallow and moving with a dainty waddle, lovable robot Baymax is the best thing about this family-friendly Disney animation based on a comic-book series.
The tubby inflatable automaton gives the film its heart and humour as a ‘personal health care companion’ who gets pushed into a more actively heroic role by Potter’s Hiro when a supervillain in a kabuki mask starts running amok in his home town.
Despite all the whizzy flying scenes and fisticuffs, the film becomes a lot less engaging when the plot takes this turn, revealing itself as yet another origin story for a band of (this time super-geeky) superheroes.
