Wreck-It-Ralph is Disney’s latest adventure into CGI animation directed by Rich Moore, and I have to say that I did enjoy this film.
The story goes that Ralph (John C. Reilly), the villain in an old arcade game called “Fix-It Felix Junior” is tired of constantly being defeated by his game’s titular character voiced brilliantly by Jack McBrayer, who is a humble Mr. Fix-It with a good heart.
Ralph breaks into a game called “Hero’s Duty” to steal a medal and return to his game to win some respect from his fellow virtual people. He accidentally gets injected into a game called “Sugar Rush” where he befriends a glitch named Vanellope von Schweetwho (Sarah Silverman) dreams of being a main avatar in her video game, but is hindered by King Candy (Alan Tudyk), lord of Sugar Rush. What Ralph does not know is Felix and Hero’s Duty character Sergeant Calhoun (Jane Lynch) are tracking him, thinking he is game jumping, which could lead to disastrous results for the whole arcade.
Disney once again brings us a fun thrill ride. The movie featured cameos from characters from some of my favorite games. It had Ryu and Ken from Street Fighter, Pac-Man, Sonic the Hedgehog, the Pong sticks, and so many more. Even the fictional games felt like a game you would find in an arcade.
The voice casting is impeccable, except for Sarah Silverman’s voice. She played the glitch character from Sugar Rush. Her voice did not seem to match that character. That being said, I found the plot and the message of the movie well placed.
I highly recommend this film to anyone! It’s an amazing thrill ride that both the parents and the kids can enjoy.
