When I first saw that Disney was making a film based on videogames, I was conflicted. Sure, Disney have created some of the most timeless, beloved and classic movies of the past near-three-quarters of a century, but they could also screw it up horribly. And, as a gamer, I would know. This must be what Native Americans thought when they saw Pocahontas.

Fortunately, I needn't have worried. This movie almost won an Oscar for a reason, people!

Words cannot express with any genuine degree of accuracy how I feel about this movie. I only rated it five stars because that is the restriction Amazon has set; were it ten stars, I would give ten; a hundred for a hundred, etc.

I won't go into an explanation about the basic plot and setting; chances are you already know it, and, if not, you can go find it in any other review. All you need to know from me is that it's a severe understatement that I completely, utterly and absolutely ADORE Wreck-It Ralph! And I whole-being-ly recommend it to absolutely everyone!!

Wreak It Ralph is the next "Toy Story." It has diverse and delightful characters as it combines elements of "Tron," "Starship Troopers," and "Candyland." Ralph is a "bad guy" in a game. He wants to be a good guy and get a medal so he crosses over to another game and ends up in a third game where he meets the Vanellope whose voice is excellently portrayed by Sarah Silverman who made the film.

The film has themes of being yourself, self sacrifice, and bullying. The language is sometimes saucy such as "gutter snipe" and "pussy willow." As an adult, I enjoyed this feature. It is one you can enjoy with your kids.

The thought of watching a film called 'Wreck-It Ralph' at a friend's house didn't really fill me with much excitement, but when I found out it was Disney, I knew it couldn't be all that bad. Now, I won't beat around the bush - I absolutely loved it. Disney have gone and done it, they have put together a masterpiece that equal's Pixar's 'Toy Story', and, dare I say it, have probably even bettered it as well.

The plot basically centres around gentle giant Ralph, who, for 30 years in his video game' Fix-It Felix, Jr', plays the villain, which makes him an outsider to the rest of the characters. Fed up of being left out and cast over to one side, he decides that he wants to become a hero, and sets out to fulfil his dream. However, his quest promises to quickly bring havoc and disruption onto the whole of the arcade where he lives. In his search for new opportunities, he enters a new game, 'Sugar Rush', where he meets an annoying a glitchy character called Vanellope, a lonely but spunky girl who is bullied by others due to her fault. Ralph wants to be a hero, and Vanellope wants to finally have to chance to enter and win a race. Together, the two of them form an unlikely friendship, which is genuinely quite touching.

The 2D animation is wonderful, and a showcase that we are currently living in a golden age as far as such animation is concerned. The kids will love it for sure, but even though I'm 22, it impressed me enormously, and was just such good fun to look at. I'm finding it hard to describe how much I enjoyed 'Wreck-It Ralph', it really is something else. The characters are all so loveable, and the story is a classic, with an equal combination of real humour and pathos. Gamers young and old will love the references to games never forgotten, and the whole thing is a creative masterpiece. Even the music brilliantly fits in with the film.

All in all, a movie for all age groups, and one I can virtually guarantee you'll want to watch again.

I bought this for my nephews birthday and he absolutely loves it and it has become a new favourite in his home. As usual from Disney, yet another brilliant story and their usual brilliant graphics etc which is just a couple of the reasons that this film is becoming another family favourite.

Technically the HD transfer and audio are unbeatable. The movie is actually surprisingly funny and it all seems to work when by rights this should be a mess. It works because the characterisation is deep enough and clever enough to win us over ( even reluctantly ) and so the movie carries us along and delivers some great gags. This could have been even better if they developed the female soldier character more but that would have made the film much longer so I see why they kept it concise. Brilliant final result tho.... RECOMMENDED.

A knockout ! I didn't rate this from just looking at the cover but when I bothered to read the reviews,I bought it ASAP !
It was even better than I had imagined.Yep,it's all based around old video games but has been crafted to perfection !
I fell in love with Von Sweet.I've got her figurine and simply love her character.She is one mischievous and double dealing knockout ! We,as viewers,were led down the road to think that she was an outlaw.The glitches were a master stroke,her racing rivals absolutely marvelous.And 'good' old Ralph - I'm glad I'm bad ! Reciting the mantra as he does a Superhero dive into the diet mountain was brilliant.It reminded me of Iron Giant.Yes,all those years ago.The Bugs 'swat' team was fantastic.I laughed my socks off at the scene where Ralph gets a hold of a combat uniform.Then snaps the closet lock ! The sheer inventiveness of the creative team was simply amazing ! As soon as the film ended,I immediately re watched it to get all the clever references I missed first time around.I lived through all those 8 Bit games and was a programmer too.Thinking about it,when Von Sweet and Ralph disappear into the Coke mountain to avoid capture by the King,that reminded me of The 13th Floor movie.As for the King himself..,well,what can I say ? He seems nice enough but there's just something about him that doesn't add up.Turbo.....,who....,Me ? Nah.
I cannot praise this film highly enough,it's just awesome ! Some really stellar performances from the voice talent.
OK,so it takes some ideas from Whacky Races.Dastardly and Mutly,with Vanellope a delightful twist on Penellope Pitstop.
The whole concept has been re imagined for a new digital generation and they've done an excellent job,top marks !
The accompanying Short - Paperman - is fabulous too.Don't miss that little gem.
