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!!

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.

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.

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.

To those who haven't seen the movie what I'm about to say may seem really profound but here we go. Wreck-It Ralph is not only on par with Toy Story, but I'd go as far as saying that it's the spiritual successor to the series.

Wreck-It Ralph is about Ralph, the villain to fictional game "Fix-It Felix Jr". In the world of Wreck-It Ralph, all the machines in the arcade are connected and characters can move freely from game to game once the arcade is empty and have a community of their own going on inside the games, and villains are sneered at despite not actually being bad people themselves. Ralph, tired of being treated poorly for being a villain, attempts to travel to another game in order to acquire a medal (something which symbolises heroism in his game) in order to gain the respect of the other characters. Though the plot may seem simple at first, there are a few underlining sub-plots that are implemented at a pace I'd say is well timed and easy to follow, such as the story of "Going Turbo". I'd give you more of an overview, but I feel that'd just spoil the experience.

In my eyes Wreck-It Ralph is everything an animated film should be, having easily empathisable characters, punchy humour, and a masterfully created world. The fictional games are easily identified by anyone who's seen a video game, with the Fix-It Felix machine being a typical early arcade platformer like Donkey Kong, Hero's Duty a more modern shooter, and Sugar Rush a friendly Mario-Kart style racing game. There are also some cameos from real-life games such as Q*bert, Sonic the Hedgehog, Super Mario Bros., Root Beer Tapper, and Street Fighter.

So what makes this movie the spiritual successor to Toy Story?
