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…
The year of 2012 was a wicked one for both Disney & Pixar as the two animation studios attempted to emulate each other's forte in their very own features. Pixar's Brave marked its first foray into fairy tales, a subgenre that Disney pretty much owns, while Disney's Wreck-It Ralph employed Pixar's own formula of observing life from a different perspective, this time exploring the world of video game characters.
The story of Wreck-It Ralph follows its eponymous character, an arcade game villain who is tired of playing the bad guy over the years & dreams of becoming a hero. Things are set in motion when he sneaks into a different game to win a medal of heroism but inadvertently unleashes a serious…
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!
Still the best video game movie. Full of references which are awesome but don't derail or overtake the main story.
Great voice cast and surprisingly great script. One of my favourite Disney films.
There's really nothing to complain about--it has nice messages, characters, and plot. Really, all you can do is point out that the message has been done a bazillion times. But still.
It's good, and that's not bad. It will almost never be bad, and that's good. There's no movie it'd rather be than itself.
I laughed and I cried and I laughed some more
I'll always like any movie that gives Q*Bert a speaking role.
A good Disney film all in all
Extremely well made and well produced
Well done Disney
I liked the concept more than the film itself. Some classic video game characters feature but not the same quality as other Disney.
I love this movie so much and I'm amazed and grateful it exists. Also I still really want to play Sugar Rush (with glitches).
In an age when modern video game adaptations range from okay to downright terrible, it took Disney (who, ironically enough, made one of the worst game adaptations 2 years prior with "Prince of Persia: The Sands Of Time") to make a great video game movie that's not really based on any existing properties but features familiar faces from existing video game IPs including Sonic The Hedgehog, Bowser from "Super Mario", Q'Bert, Zangieff from "Street Fighter" and many others. Aside from that, it's mainly a story of a outsider who is just trying to shatter misconceptions about himself and learning to be happy with who he is. Packed with exciting action, hilarious laughs, fun video game references & Easter eggs and a lot of heart, "Wreck-It Ralph" is something that just makes you smile everytime you watch it, whether or not you're a gamer!
It was actually a good movie, which surprised me because I was expecting it to be incredibly cheesy and clichéd.
Help me out with this one guys.
I think Some Like it Hot is the one that marked me the…
Movies that have such a powerful/memorable/weird/insane/awesome/surprising last scene (or shot) that made you say "THAT ENDING!!!!!" or variations
