10/10

I'm in my 30s now. I have a kid and I grew up gaming in the NES, Genesis, and arcade machines. This film has a lot of novelty to it and a lot of allusions to things I grew up with which makes it both fun and familiar. I took my daughter to see it in theaters so when a digital copy came up I had to get it.

All in all its a film about being ok with being a bit different and that sometimes you gotta be the bad guy in a situation even though you're not a bad guy.

Well written, cute, and all in all a lot of fun if you're like me and can relate to the games and help bridge a bit of old with new.

When Can I see you Again?

This is one of the greatest movies Disney released recently. It's a wonderful story about a videogame bad guy (John C. Rielly) who wants more out of life, and tries to be the hero for once. In the process, however, he ends up accidentally releasing a force that threatens to destroy his world, and he must try to stop it. At the same time, the hero of his game (Jack McBrayer) tries to find him and bring him home before their game is unplugged. Along the way, Ralph meets the little candy-coated glitch with a snarky attitude but a sweet heart from the Candy-themed racing game Sugar Rush, Vanellope Von Shweetz, (Sarah Silverman) and the kick-butt commanding officer of the First Person Shooter Hero''s Duty Sergeant Calhoun (Jane Lynch). It has many great messages, including loving yourself and how wrong it is to bully and put people in boxes and judge them, and that friendship is more valuable than winning.

This has something for everybody. It has a great story, wonderful acting and BRILLIANT music by Henry Jackman. There's also lots and lots of wonderful details throughout this amazing videogame world they created, including tons of videogame character cameos and references all throughout the movie. It has action, adventure, surprising plot twists, a wonderfully believeable world, great characters, comedy, a nicely woven romantic subplot, and a wonderful friendship at the heart of the film. If you're a Disnerd, a videogame nut, animation nut, an adult or a child, You will love this.

Fair warning, though: The Cybugs in Hero's Duty may be a bit scary for very young children, and there is some rude humor and cartoony/videogame style violence and perilous scenes you'd expect from a world of videogames. But nothing too bad, though. There is definately alot for all audiences: kids, teenagers, and adults alike.

My kids love this movie
Verified purchase
I was not expecting to enjoy this movie, but watched it because my 8 and 11 year old daughters wanted to try it. They loved it, and I have to say, it is a very cute movie. Worth watching as an adult, and highly recommended for anyone watching it with a child. We rented the movie at first, which was a mistake because we had to buy it. Since then, my daughters have watched it at least 6 more times, and my older daughter developed a trivia game of all Wreck-it Ralph questions that she plays with my younger daughter. It's a good story, with plot lines that have generated more than a few discussions of "why did..." and excellent character development.

This is a must-see movie!

I find in my old age I never actually go to a theater to see a film. I wait until it comes out on Blu-ray, and now that I have a 3D TV, I buy almost every film in 3D (even if 3D does bother my wife).

WRECK-IT RALPH is amazing, not just for the wonderful animation, but the story as well. It's a story of the "bad guy" in an old arcade game that is living on borrowed time. Ralph (John C. Reilly) goes to meetings of a sort of AA group for villains of arcade games, but he's determined to not be thought of as a bad guy. The other characters in his game, "Fix it Felix," don't want to associate with Ralph, and give him no credit for wrecking things so the game has a reason to exist so Felix (a really nice handiman) can fix-it. Felix gets a medal each time he saves the day, and Ralph feels he'll be accepted if he can get a medal. He sneaks into a commando game, and breaks all the rules to finally win a medal, but in the process releases a "bug" that he accidentally introduces into the sugary-sweet game of "Sugar Rush" Stuck in that game, and searching for his medal, he meets the Glitch, aka Vanellope von Schweetz (Sarah Silverman), an outcast who is adorable and irritating at the same time. She is determined to win an upcoming race, and Ralph sees her winning as the only way to get his medal back - until King Candy convinces him otherwise.

The rest of the film is brilliantly funny plot points and endearing moments as Felix and the Commando leader search for Ralph and the bug, and Ralph realizes that Vanellope is really meant to be the main character in Sugar Rush, and fights to make things right.

This film is amazing, and a wonderful work of animation from Walt Disney Feature Animation. It is to Disney's credit that, even after acquiring Pixar, they continue to also turn out wonderful animated films in their Animation division. See this film, unless you feel blood and guts is the only way to have an adventure.

Who Knew? Video Games Have A Life Of Their Own
Verified purchase
Ralph is a home wrecker. Or at least he is an apartment wrecker, climbing the same apartment building for years, smashing windows and breaking masonry, only to be followed by Fix-it-Felix who repairs the damage with a magical golden hammer. After a hard day's work, what do video game characters do? Like the toys in Toy Story, they kick back and relax, leading their own lives until the arcade opens again tomorrow. Ralph's video game has reached the implausible age of 30, and the resident characters are having a party to celebrate. But they have not invited Ralph, who lives in a junk pile of broken bricks across the street from the apartment.

Ralph is despondent about his role as designated bad guy, and even attends a group therapy session for video bad guys. He's advised to follow the philosophy "I'm bad, and that's good." But he wants to be recognized as a hero, and starts by going to Game Central, a kind of Grand Central Station where video characters can shop and recreate on their days off. It also offers the forbidden opportunity to access other video games in order to confirm his heroism. In a combat video he wrecks his way to a medal, but has it stolen by a villain and carried off to yet another video game in Candyland. The King here is a cross between the Mad Hatter and the Wizard of Oz, and just too goody-goody to be true.

The big auto race known as the Sugar Rush is coming up, and here we encounter an archetype from Disney, the neglected Princess with a fatal flaw. Will Ralph become a hero? Will he rescue the Princess? Will his game avoid the dreaded un-plugging that results from becoming obsolete? Tune in to Wreck-It Ralph for the answers to these and other exciting problems that face the denizens of videoland.

This offering from Disney is fast, colorful, and features a host of characters that are interesting without quite becoming loveable. They teach kids by example that you can improve yourself if you try hard enough, and that obstacles and even personal flaws ("glitches") can be overcome.

Sometimes the only way to fix something--is to wreck it.....
Verified purchase
While I was never a habitué of video games, there are so many that I do remember simply because they were literally everywhere. The story here is a straightforward one. Wreck it Ralph is a bad guy, alone and literally despised by his neighbors because he wrecks their building, but at heart, he really not a bad guy. He had been literally moved off his home and shoved to the side into the dump, because of "eminent domain" a fact most watchers can empathize with, and his rage is justified. The game he is in is "Fix it Felix Jr." And the star of this game gets the pie, the awards , the friends, and the up coming anniversary party. The fact that Ralph is literally left out in the cold does not set well with him and he is longing to be at least, a part of everything going on around him because he is part of the game. After an argument he decides only a medal, like Felix's will at least give him some of what he wants and so he goes to seek one by jumping into a game called Hero's Duty. He manages to acquire one, but when he leaves, he brings big trouble with him when he takes a space cruiser and crashes into a game called Sugar Rush. It is here that he finds a down and out glitch called Vanelllope Von Schweetz, who steals his medal in order to enter a race. In trying to get his medal back, he discovers a dark secret concerning the reigning ruler, King Kandy who is fiercely obsessed with keeping Vanellope from ever racing at all, and despite the fact that he is Wreck it Ralph, he must step out of his element in order to help set things right by doing what he does best and shows great heart in doing so.

Have you ever felt like you were stuck in a role you never wanted to play? Constantly subjected to scorn and ridicule simply for performing the only task available to you? What if you could change that?

Fix-it Felix Jr. has been a popular game in Litvak's for years. The hero and titular character, Felix (voiced by Jack McBrayer) has a magic hammer that can repair any damage done by the game's villain, Ralph. When the game is over, Felix is given a medal while Ralph (voiced by John C. Reilly) is tossed off the roof by the tenants of the building he failed to destroy. When the arcade closes and the game is turned off, Ralph returns to his home atop a garbage heap in the nearby dump. For recreation, he visits Tapper's, a vintage game that assigns the player the role of a bartender. Also, upon our introduction to the story, Ralph makes his first visit to a support group for video game villains. Among the villains in attendance at Bad-Anon, we see M. Bison and Zangief from Street Fighter (voiced by Gerald C. Rivers and director Rich Moore respectively), a ghost from Pac-Man (voiced by Kevin Deters), and a zombie (Raymond Persi). During that meeting, he announces he no longer wants to be a bad guy. With the 30th anniversary of Fix-it Felix Jr., the tenants throw a party and "forget" to invite Ralph. Ralph crashes the party, in every sense of the word, and leaves soon after. Before he's left, he vows to return with a medal, something denied him by Felix and the tenants of the building he destroys. He seizes the opportunity to travel to a new game, a first-person shooter game called Hero's Duty, when a character from that game passes out in the bathroom. While at the center of Hero's Duty, Ralph is overwhelmed by the violence in modern games and refuses to heed the orders of his superior, Sergeant Calhoun (voiced by Jane Lynch). Once the arcade closes and the game ends, Ralph decides to forego the usual hurdles of Hero's Duty and steal the medal typically awarded to the winner. After stealing the medal and, unwittingly, bringing a menacing enemy insect known as a Cy-bug with him, Ralph heads to the kart-racing game Sugar Rush. It's there that he encounters the perpetually glitchy and terminally annoying Vanellope von Schweetz (voiced by Sarah Silverman). Despite the initial friction, Ralph and Vanellope (Silverman) bond over their shared status as outcasts.

There is, of course, more to the story including Felix's pursuit of Ralph into the various other games and his budding romance with the no-nonsense Sergeant Calhoun, the true origin of Silverman's character, and an eventual revolt in the world of Sugar Rush. All of it, and I do mean all of it, had me riveted. I will say that, as a fan of old-style video games, I would've preferred seeing the character of Ralph travel to more than just the two different games besides his. Regardless of my criticisms, Wreck-It Ralph is hilariously entertaining and fun for viewers of all ages. Check it out.
