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 enjoyed watching this film and would recommend other to give it a try , (as I am) but this movie, although enjoyable to watch due to the better than average acting fails to add anything new to its storyline that is all too familiar to these types of movies.
Wreck-It Ralph sees Disney trying to go the Pixar route before they decided to buy the company. It is a brisk colourful animation taking a retro look at arcade games. However the makers saw too many Pixar films because you can easily guess who the real villain really is going to be as it follows the Pixar beats too closely and adds some Disney mush to it as well.Wreck-It Ralph is the villain in an old 8 bit arcade game Fix-It Felix Jr. It really is a thinly disguised version of Donkey Kong. Ralph though has had enough of being a villain with no character development. He does not even get invited to the game's 30th anniversary party that Felix and his crew throw.Out of the game Ralph is a nice but clumsy guy who just wants to join in with the others but the villains of the arcade games tend to be ignored. So Ralph goes to join another arcade game in order to win a medal and gets involved in more adventures. Felix goes after him before his malfunctioning arcade game is switched off for good.
A video game villain wants to be a hero and sets out to fulfill his dream, but his quest brings havoc to the whole arcade where he lives. In antipation of the upcoming 2018 sequel i though of reviewing the original 'Wreck-It Ralph" and i gotta say this movie is really fun not just as an animated film but also as a video-game film also loved how we kept getting different fractions of video-game worlds i thought that was cool but also the animation and voice acting was once again brilliant and as for the relationship between Ralph and Vanellope was pretty cute and the soundtrack was even better. Both kids and their parents will definitely love this movie especially parents a bit more. (A+)
'Wreck-It-Ralph (2012)' takes a relatively unexplored section of pop-culture and not only treats it with respect but also intrinsically envelopes it into the story so that it is both essential, but not overbearing, and entertaining (in an admittedly 'I know that character', kind of way). The narrative itself explores occasionally powerful themes of overcoming societal conformity, prejudice and generally just being better than you or anyone else ever thought possible. It's a vibrant, unique and exciting animation that's enjoyable throughout and hits all of its emotional beats surprisingly well. Each major character has a relatively complete and satisfying arc which ultimately adds to the impact of this fun, if somewhat forgettable, flick. 7/10
Wreck-It RalphThe movie starts off slow and takes too much time to chew off the characters before the plot thickens and surrounds the characters under a pile of troubles with lots of twists to come and the final act where the writer shows off majestically.
