QUICK TAKE:
Computer Animated Action/Adventure: A teenager uses his smarts to create an unlikely superhero team to capture a villain who's stolen his invention.
PLOT:
Hiro Hamada (voice of RYAN POTTER) is a 14-year-old teenager who's so smart that he graduated from high school at 13. Yet, he's only using his brains to create and operate a small robot to enter into 'bot battles with much older opponents. Raised by his Aunt Cass (voice of MAYA RUDOLPH) following the death of his parents more than a decade earlier, Hiro has an older brother in Tadashi (voice of DANIEL HENNEY), a student at a self-proclaimed "nerd school" run by Professor Robert Callaghan (voice of JAMES CROMWELL).

When Hiro sees what Tadashi and his fellow students -- including Honey Lemon (voice of GENESIS RODRIGUEZ), Go Go Tomago (voice of JAMIE CHUNG) and Wasabi Ginger (voice of DAMON WAYANS JR.) -- are doing in terms of inventions, the teen knows he must enroll there. His admittance project -- a swarm of microbots that can be manipulated into pretty much any shape via a brain-reading visor -- impresses Callaghan and the rest. It does the same for the professor's chief rival, tech CEO Alistair Krei (voice of ALAN TUDYK), but Hiro isn't interested in selling his invention to him.

After a family tragedy, Hiro has pretty much given up on everything, much to the dismay of his new friends, including Fred (voice of T.J. MILLER), the school mascot. All of that changes when Hiro accidentally activates Tadashi's school project, Baymax (voice of SCOTT ADSIT), a medical assistant robot who detects something wrong in the teen and sets out to make things right. That includes tracing a lone microbot to other such devices that are attracting it. When they discover a masked villain now in control of Hiro's invention, he helps turn his friends, along with Baymax, into an unlikely superhero team tasked with stopping the bad guy.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
It's a good bet many will.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG
For action and peril, some rude humor, and thematic elements.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
