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.

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!!

I really enjoyed this film from the begining to the end. I even watched the end credits in case anything else happened at the end. I was lucky enough to find the Disney short of Paper man. Another retro piece of black and white animation with a sweet story and amazingly detailed expressions.

Ralph is the bad guy who wrecks the building, so Felex can fix it. In toys story style all the game characters come to life and hang out avter the arcade closes. The trouble is when the game is over Ralph's night just gets worse. He lives in a dump, and is snubed by all the other game characters. Tired of not getting any of the recognition for jis work Ralph tskes M Bison's advice "to go turbo", to earn some recognition and respect.

Having all my faverite game's characters around in the movie as extras made it extra special for me. I used to play Qubert, so a bit of nostalgia might colour my perceptions. On his quest he meets a kindred spirit geting the mean girls tratment in her own game. Together they set out to change their destinies.

All in all a great film which I highly recomend. Yes it has a Disney themes running tbrough it, but it is pulled off perfectily. Even a few new high definition characters are in there for the action part of the film.
