Review: 9 out of 10 stars.
Aznized San Francisco with a bunch of “nerds” (more like geeks.)
The story surrounded Hiro (sounds as Hero) who lives with his brother and their parents died when he was only 3. BayMax (the inflatable robot) has learned emotions with AI (remember Scarlett Johannson’s Her as the OS?) There’s a very good story surrounding brotherhood, friendship, family and lots of cool imagining technologies with tons of absolutely adorable and realistic drawings.
These drawings have a lot of close proximity of San Francisco, from Golden Gate Bridge, Stockton Tunnel, to Palace of Fine Arts, to TransAmerica and all the windy roads, all are in pretty cool 3D. If you are a San Franciscan, you will definitely have even more chuckles since almost all the scenes were Asianized with Japanese and Chinese signs everywhere.
They even named the city San Fransokyo!
The fun part is not adult jokes like some other recent animations, but back to the original emotions, trickling your inner most sense of love and dependence of your family and friends.
The lovely drawings make you want to have a Baymax, that will make you emotional and have a tear or 2.
Stay after the credit, especially if you are a big fan of Stan Lee.

There’s a after the credit scene when Fred (the guy whose father went on vacay without him and lives in the giant house.) He looked at the family portrait and said he wished his dad could see what he has accomplished. Then he touched the picture and it opened up as a secret door. Behind it was a room filled with hangers of blue underwear with 2 dots on the back hanging like in a lingerie store with same color tops. He was perplexed and the father walked in then said, “wear the underwear front, back, inside out and back again” as they both said the last part together. Then they hugged.
The father is Stan Lee, Iron Man’s writer. This would very much satisfy Lee’s fans.
