Epic Movie With Mature Themes (by composerjhiebert)
This is a fantastic movie which I greatly enjoyed as an adult. It should be great for kids too, though it has an emotional maturity to it that might make it difficult for audiences that are too young. The climatic fight scene is one of the coolest animation scenes ever, especially with the powerful music soaring along with the robots in the city skies.
Really cool movie (by hongounan)
I think its not for everyone, the rage of Mai, how her mother treated her for the first hour of the movie. I guess these viewers don't have any idea what's it like to be raised up with absence of your father's love. This is about the story of a messed up kid regain trust of the world, ironically from a AI robot which is probably only 2 months old. The big fight towards the finale is super awesome, two robot fighting up in the sky, with laser cannons and such a sad and calm light music for contrast. This is the Dream! I loved it.
Fantastic Movie - Not Big Hero 6 (by benwang-34237)
Aside from the film involving robots with feelings this is far from Big Hero 6. I love BH6 and this film is definitely up there with it. Some reviews below were rated poorly based on the main character Mai being an angry brat but that IS her character and if she made you feel that way then her job was complete. Her actions were intended to upset you and make you disagree with them so great job with that! Those that said the film is too violent are just being overly sensitive. Look at all the kids films/shows out there that are just as violent, if not more - Power Rangers, DragonBallZ,Tom <more>
& Jerry, TMNT, The Lion King, etc - Stop being so sensitive people. I thought Momo the dog was the highlight of the show. The beeping was hilarious and we don't really know what is being said, we're just assuming it was cussing but it really added a lot of humor to the film.I really liked how the film depicted humans as being so dependent and addicted to the robots, much like how we are so addicted to our phones and other technology now. The animation was amazing, kudos to Tangent studios for a great job! Overall the film is fantastic for both kids and adults.
This movie speaks out to core issues in detail that most movies for kids don't. It instantly shows what some kids go through from their point of view. It is also a great story of the value of friendship, that everyone needs someone to lean on. The parts that are action packed give you an adrenaline rush and the quiet moments really engage your emotions. They do this while still allowing comedy and fun to be thrown into the mix. Most importantly the characters are able to make want root for them and when the characters are at rock bottom It's heart wrenching. In summary Next Gen is an <more>
action packed, fun filled, story of relationships that's definitely worth your time.
First of all, I noticed the quality of the animation, how can I describe this..,It's incredibly well made! I just loved every second of it, the colors, the fluid motion, the scenery.. Sometimes I paused at some parts of the movie, just to make a picture of the scenery. The badass and rebellious music in the background also made it an overall delight to watch. I'm sorry, but you just can't compare this with big hero 6, it's from a whole different universe, a whole different story and level, a whole different set of characters. The only comparison I could make is, that both the <more>
main characters of the movies are rebellious teenagers, so what? Like that didn't happen before. I just really, really enjoyed watching this and would reccommend it to anyone who loves a well made animation.
Great art, great storyline. Well done................
Amazing animation. Netflix is in the game! (by pmsingtiger)
Next Gen is about a girl Mai who is dealing with a lot of anger issues after her dad left Which is hinted that he died at some point in the film . Her mother has a huge affinity for robots while Mai cannot stand them because of how they are used against her and taking away any human interaction that she craves. When Mai comes across Project 77 no he does not get a name in the movie she is just as unwilling to trust this robot like any other, but when he follows her home she realizes the unique aspect of his design when he blows a small robot up. They begin to create memories together but <more>
due to damage that 77 sustained earlier he can only keep so many memories and must choose which ones to delete so he will not end up going into a system reboot. Through out his time with Mai he learns mortality and the concepts of love and attachment and how much Mai really needs him and other people in her life. All of this comes crashing down when the Robots development CEO Pin comes looking for 77 and you find out that he intends to destroy all human life. A huge battle ensues and 77 must give up his memories for Mai to restore his weapons system to fight the massive robot Aries. This story is sad in so many ways. It shows Mai and her distraught emotions over her father leaving and possibly dying and her mom trying to cope through her love of robots and ignoring the problems with her daughter. It shows humanity is something you must chose and that our memories are priceless with the people we love. Everything about this movie was a win for me. The animation style was crisp and as strong as a Pixar or Disney movie I would even say that it exceeded DreamWorks animation in a lot of aspects. There is a vague similarity to big hero 6, but for me I feel this movie touched on a lot of better subjects and that the character depth was better on the main two characters than all the supporting ones. Where as Big Hero 6 felt like it had a forgivable villain this movie was facing it's own demons by creating a robot that thought everything should be perfect when humanity itself cannot obtain any level of perfection. I wish that they would have made more progress in the end with 77's memories being restored. I also would have liked to have a little more backstory on Mai's father and if he died or the funeral they went to was something else entirely? My complaints aren't very many, I'm excited to see what Animation Netflix comes out with next because this was an amazing start in my book.
Nice movie. The significance of memories making & keeping good ones over bad ones and relationships as highlighted in the movie was interesting and much needed in the world of today.
Great Animated Film! (by MrGenre)
It has a few stumbles along the way, and some jokes that run too long, but it's definitely worth your time. Mai is a great lead character and John Krasinski as the robot has a lot of heart.This may not be top of the heap, but it holds its own in the world of Pixars and DreamWorks. Well done!
