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!
Damn it, damn it, damn it I wanted to like this more than I did! Being a lifelong video game fan I popped for the video game references at the beginning. It was cool to see characters from games I grew up with on the big screen. So you could say it was of to a good start. Once it gets going though I struggled to stay interested. A big problem I had is the trailers are a bit misleading. We're lead to believe in the trailers that it's a film about a bad guy video game character who wants to be the hero. The problem is that part of the story only serves to set up the actual story…
Fun movie. Very enjoyable.
very funny and entertaining movie! a great animated film good for any audience
Wonderful in its weirdness, with genuine heart, Wreck-It Ralph achieves the impossible: making a movie about videogames that doesn't suck. It's creative and sweet, with a great cast and wonderful character design and environments. It's a shame it's so overshadowed, as it's one of Disney's most polished recent films.
maaan, what a ride. big fan of this
A Disney por muitos e muitos anos lançou muitos filmes do gênero animação de qualidade, especialmente os considerados Clássicos, onde era muito difícil encontrar um filme ruim. O tempo passou e a Disney se aliou (comprou) aos estúdios Pixar, e vieram grandes animações também. Porém, quando a Disney tentava caminhar por suas pernas, raramente tinha alguma animação que fosse mais do que razoável. Mas, finalmente ela conseguiu lançar uma animação bacana como foi o caso de Detona Ralph.
Ralph é um ex-vilão de videogames 8-Bit que quer mostrar ao mundo que pode ser um herói, assim como o mocinho Fix-It Felix. Quando invade um novo game em primeira pessoa, procurando fazer o bem e mostrar seu valor, acidentalmente libera um…
Great animation, with a unique blend of retro segments and some really nice 8-bit 3D animation (if that makes sense).
A unique, touching story. This is something more reminiscent of Pixar's work, you'd almost be fooled into thinking it was indeed Pixar.
Cameos and easter eggs from all our favourite games.
Great voice acting cast (Alan Tudyk needs to get around more).
A very vibrant world with charismatic characters to match.
A wonderful score from one of my favourite composers; Henry Jackman.
The end credit sequence is wonderful.
Some pretty funny gags.
Jane Lynch as what is essentially herself takes you out of the movie a little bit.
Some unnecessary 3D gimmicks.
A Rhianna song... just…
Solidly entertaining, unique premise. Wish I could've seen more of the video game world.
