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.

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?

Ralph is the bad guy in a vintage arcade game.

He has to live on the rubbish dump and is envious of the other characters in the game.

What can he do ? Change his ways ... with unforeseen circumstance.

Anyone who frequented video arcades in the 80's this will bring back some great memories .... for the rest it's also a great family film with a few twists and turns in the plot.

Format: DVD
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.
