The story of a regular guy just looking for a little wreck-ognition.
Wreck-It Ralph is the 9-foot-tall, 643-pound villain of an arcade video game named Fix-It Felix Jr., in which the game's titular hero fixes buildings that Ralph destroys. Wanting to prove he can be a good guy and not just a villain, Ralph escapes his game and lands in Hero's Duty, a first-person shooter where he helps the game's hero battle against alien invaders. He later enters Sugar Rush, a kart racing game set on tracks made of candies, cookies and other sweets. There, Ralph meets Vanellope von Schweetz who has learned that her game is faced with a dire threat that could affect the entire arcade, and one that Ralph may have inadvertently started.
I love animated films, I love most animated Disney films yet I was bored rigid throughout Wreck-It Ralph. So what went wrong? The film has been receiving a lot of attention from people of my generation who are old enough to remember all the games characters that make cameo appearances in the movie. There is a nostalgic kick in seeing much loved characters in this new environment but these repetitive pop culture references aren’t nearly enough to sustain a film by themselves. So whilst it is cute to see a self-help meeting of video game bad guys it adds very little to the experience when the story is so creaky and soulless.
The unique world of Wreck-It Ralph is undoubtedly…
Wreck it Ralph shows once again that having a great idea and an imaginative setting means absolutely nothing if you insist on having your story go through the motions like a production line worker. Respect for creative storytelling is traded in for pretty pixels, an appealing aesthetic and the obligatory conclusion in the final act. All this turned Wreck-it Ralph into a piece of IKEA furniture.
Granted, the film's first act showed promise, but once Ralph's objectives become clear, there was no doubt anymore that yet again an animated film would flesh out its themes in the exact same ways so many other films have done already, often much better. More often than not films of this irk have great…
This was a repeat viewing but the first time watching it in 3D. This Disney computer animated movie is one of the better ones over the last few years. Movie has humor, drama, action and some slapstick for the little ones.
In this one Wreck-It-Ralph plays a video game villain who wants to be a hero and sets out to fulfill his dream, but his quest brings havoc to the whole arcade where he lives. Another way to describe this one would be Toy Story Meets A Video Arcade.
I give the movie 4 stars as it has some outstanding sequences in the movie. My favorites would be when Ralph enters a Halo like video game, when Ralph crashes a…
Disney wastes some unexploited potential but excels in the creativity department with a concept rich in visual design, construction of action sequences and effective humor. This is the first 3D animated film that can be called an authentic success; beyond the countless videogame easter eggs, both explicit and hard to notice unless you put attention to every frame, Wreck-it Ralph could be called the animated equivalent to Scott Pilgrim (which, ironically, is a film which title makes reference to another original videogame). The feature makes creative transitions from 8 bits to 35 bits, the movement mechanisms of the characters were a nice touch and that nostalgia evoked in the gamers of past generations is something impossible to ignore. Add to that valuable life lessons and the importance of accepting your role in any given context and you get a perfect cherry to decorate the cake's top. It completely surpassed my expectations.
P.S. I dig Chun-Li.
My wife took our 2 year old son to see this for the second time yesterday. My original review can be found at the following link.
Now for what my son says and does after seeing this film twice.
Yorel: Wreck it Ralph PLEASE?
Me: (handing him Wreck it Ralph action figure) here ya go buddy.
Yorel: Wreck it Ralph, Wreck it Ralph, Wreck it Ralph YEAH!
Me: (Speaking to my wife) our kid is ridiculous!
Wife: I know right.
Yorel: (holding action figure above his head) I'm gonna wreck it, I'm gonna wreck it, Wreck it Ralph YEAH!
Me: (speaking to wife) He's all jacked up about Wreck it Ralph WOW!
Wife: No kidding!
Sugary-sweet and full of propulsive energy, "Wreck-it Ralph" is a colorful and boisterous story about learning that the person who you are is truly the person worth being. The film's themes are clear and poignant, but, beyond the nostalgia of seeing 80s-based video game characters in action, the experience lacks the heart and quieter moments that would make the film a winner for those who like soulful animated films. Overall, kids will love this, but adults may find it less-than-remarkable after the film's sugar rush burns off.
I really wasn't that fussed by this movie on first viewing but it rewards multiple views and I really enjoyed watching my son watch it.
This movie is a letter of love to anyone who loves (retro) videogames!
The story of this movie revolves around Ralph who is the badguy of the retro videogame 'Fix it Felix'. After 30 years of being the badguy, Ralph is sick off being the badguy and wants to be recognized for his part in the videogame. When he does not get his deserved recognition Ralph decides to leave his game and go out on an adventure. Along the way he meets a cast of colourful characters.
The animation of this film is EXCEPTIONAL! The backgrounds are beautiful and the characters are well designed. I really love how every videogame has it's own distinctive style (Hero's Duty is a dark…
The central reason for what i like this film, it's because i love some of the video games that has been included on the story, and it has a nice script and could be as fun for the kids as for adults.
as good as i heard , no more no less. animation was p cool n it had a pretty okay story but i could also tell john c rei didn't really wanna have to do this mov
An incredible homage to video games. One of the best video games movies ever. I also how they manage to make the bad guy really creepy. Dreamworks finally made a movie that has as much heart as a pixar movie.
A fun and clever film with a good heart and solid message. Although the story was a bit lite overall, the characters were highly entertaining and the twist was great.
Cute, but ultimately forgettable.
