Hopefully a step in the right direction for Disney
Gamers from Gen X and younger will drool over the game titles and characters that pop up in the first act of Wreck-It Ralph. What?s missing from the second act is character development. The film becomes largely plot-driven, as Ralph jumps around the various video game worlds and meets all walks of life, including Vanellope, a glitchy little girl from Sugar Rush who has dreams of being a race champion. She and Ralph make a deal to help each other get what they want, and the action continues
until the third act, which begins with Ralph doing something that seems devastatingly cruel to Vanellope, yet makes us leap to where we should be in terms of caring for the characters. We hope Ralph will learn the truth about Sugar Rush?s mysterious past and help Vanellope achieve her dreams before the finale. Looking back, there was no way for Wreck-It Ralph to live up to the hype. But it still delivers in terms of pure entertainment. READ MY FULL REVIEW AT: filmfather (dot) blogspot (dot) com.
