With Pixar supremo John Lasseter overseeing production Wreck it Ralph was always going to be a quality product. However with Pixar's last few offerings (Cars 2, Brave and Monsters University) all getting mixed reviews, there was a feeling that another listless offering was on the cards. Well I was so wrong. Wreck it Ralph is supremely entertaining for children of all ages and of course for all those mums and dads out there who remember playing Super Mario Bros, Tomb Raider, and Sonic The Hedgehog till the early hours in the eighties and nineties.

With an extremely engaging and likeable main character, Ralph of the title is a video game "bad guy" who really wants to be a "good guy". When he finds himself given the opportunity to become a good guy he grasps it with both of his huge hands and sets off on an adventure of self discovery.

With obvious parallels with Toy Story (electronic toys other than real ones) this could have been just Toy Story 4 with another name. However the writer and director have produced a stand alone movie that has enough uniqueness to make it one of the best GCI "kids Movies" ever made. There is enough slapstick humour for the kids and plenty of adult references to keep the adults happy. The story may be a bit cut and paste from other movies but so what. There is hardly anything out there that is totally unique, and this remember is mass market stuff, so a little leeway is acceptable.

The animation is second to non and is on a par with Pixar, the attention to detail is staggering. Every time my three year old sits down to watch I see something new, or an old video game character in the background. There are quite a few.

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!!

When I started seeing previews of Disney's new computer animated movie Wreck-It Ralph, I couldn't wait. I love classic video games, and this looked like a fun adventure with cameos by some of my "friends" from those games. So naturally I rushed right out to see it. And it was everything I hoped it would be.

It is the 30th anniversary of the video game Fix-It Felix, Jr. But instead of feeling like celebrating, villain Wreck-It Ralph (voiced by John C. Reilly) is feeling down. Yes, he's the villain who destroys the house that Felix (Jack McBrayer) has to fix, but no one in the game seems to appreciate him. This is driven home when he realizes the rest of the gang is having a party to celebrate their anniversary without him.

And so Ralph sets out to win a medal and prove he can be a hero, too. His efforts at game jumping take him first to Hero's Duty, a first person shooter where he meets Calhoun (Jane Lynch), the captain in this game fighting off an alien invasion. But then he winds up in Sugar Rush, a cart racing game with a sweets theme, where he meets Vanellope (Sarah Silverman). Will all this game jumping turn him into a hero? Or will it have devastating consequences for the entire arcade?

I'll admit that even from the previews I had some idea where the movie was going, and I was right. But that's doesn't mean I had the entire plot figured out. There were actually some surprises along the way, and I enjoyed that greatly.

Even with a predictable plot, I was pulled into the story. At first, it was looking for cameos from so many old time games (and let me tell you, Disney must have paid through the nose for the rights to use them). Then it was the humor.

'WECOME TO GAME 'WORLD'
when you've finished playing and have gone to bed the game character's
come out to play.
'Ralph' has been a bad boy for 30 years, he see's 'Felix' ( will fix it )
from the same game receive medal after medal for being good, repairing that
which 'Ralph' has 'wrecked'
30 years with no friends, no medals, 'Ralph' craves both, and will do just
about anything to get noticed for being 'good' even if it means joining a
different game to do so.
along the way he will meet many new faces and yes he'll find a real friend,
and will learn being 'bad' is sometimes 'good'
'Disney' have entertained generation after generation for as long as most
can remember, pleased to say the 'Disney' studio continues to do so.
wonder what 'Walt' would have made of the 'digital' age in which we now live,
my guess is he would have embraced it.
'Wreck it Ralph' .......great family viewing for all.
