the arcade closes, a secret world comes to life. Ralph is the menace of
classic arcade game ‘Fix it Felix Jr.,’ always causing havoc in a game
no control over but after doing it all his life he is in need of
else. He wants to be the hero for once. Against all odds and his
wishes, Ralph sets on a journey to prove to himself and everyone else
can be a hero.
Wreck-It Ralph is
the perfect holiday movie. It’s witty, action packed and full of stuff
kids, but it also has that great helping humour that kids of all ages
Ralph (John C. Reilly) the lead in the animated adventure is someone
people will connect with: a guy that is sick of the daily grind, doing
old stuff, day in and day out. Like most of us, he just wants to break
Reilly fits the role perfectly. His grunt of a voice and raw humour
character down to a tee. Sarah Silverman as Vanellope the Glitch Racer
Rush however good, just seems out of place playing such a young kid. I
why they didn’t cast a younger comedian.
world created in Wreck-It Ralph is
something short of genius. I would have never imagined an arcade coming
while no ‘Humans’ where around but instantly I found myself picking my
from the ground, in awe of the ideas Disney has created to make the
Power cords as rail lines, power boards as cities, characters inside
games consider the game as their jobs. Wreck-It Ralph is like Toy Story for a
new generation, the gaming generation.
will get a kick out of all the hidden and not so hidden Easter Eggs
splashed all over the movie. From classic 80’s game references, to
from Street Fighter, even little gems from newer games. I can guarantee
you can’t spot them all in just one viewing.
a shame Disney has decided to release the movie almost two months after
American release, this just gives more people the opportunity to
download it. I can understand the marketing /profit value of waiting
Boxing Day release, but I’m sure you would lose a fair chunk of that
lost sales due to piracy. I’m not condoning it, I’m just venting. Match
rest of the world with an earlier release.
fear is that non-gamers will turn away from the movie and think it’s
them. All I have to say to that is: don’t be silly. While there are
to video games in the movie, you don’t need to like video games to get
movie. I didn’t see Bambi to get tips on how to be a deer, or see X-Men
help with my mutant problems. Get my drift? Wreck-It Ralph
is a must see, even if you don’t see it in 3D or wait for
arse Tuesday, I can promise you, you won’t be disappointed.
has always set the bar high for other studios, but in reality Disney
released a great movie single handily since the 90’s. Wreck-It Ralph has broken that streak. And gets me super excited to
where they are going to take the Star
Wars franchise. It rarely happens, but if there is one movie that
going to see this summer, or winter depending where you are in world,
you see Wreck-It Ralph .
