Wreck-It Ralph In Movie Review – In Theaters November 2
Princesses vs Pixar; Art vs cartoons; I was sure that the 3D computer animated comedy Wreck-It Ralph would never measure up to classic Disney movies. I was wrong. From its opening moments to its closing credits, this color feature is sweet eye candy. Young and old, boys and girls alike can relate to the story of two misfits, 9 foot, 643 pound arcade game villain John C. Reilly AKA Wreck-It Ralph and glitch Vanellope von Schweetz.
Its threatened arcade storyline builds on adventure and emotion. Can’t blame Ralph after thirty years of being bad for confessing to his villainous support group that he wants more out of life as they warn him of the danger of going TURBO. Rather than being just a spectator, I felt like I was inside the games with Ralph and Vanellope.
Nevertheless, Ralph decides to become a hero. He ventures inside Hero’s Duty, a light-gun shooter game, wins his medal and escapes followed by an alien invader Cy-Bug. Next stop Sugar Rush, a kart racing game for competition, romance, and personal insights. Video game characters Fix-It-Felix, Sgt. Calhoun, and King Candy flesh out the plot as Ralph helps in danger friend Vanellope.
The world is not a perfect place; nor is its humans. Wreck-It Ralph shows another side, a possible inspiration for people to do better. Wreck-It Ralph breaks from traditional fairy tales, traditional Disney fare. It’s a witty, modern, original spin on video games. Yet it has a touch of nostalgia. With 188 licensed game character cameos, music by Skrillex, Owl City, Buckner & Garcia, and AKB48188, and pop culture references – this is real entertainment.
Here’s a clip called Heroes Duty.
