A gamer's film
I am a gamer at heart, and Wreck-It Ralph was my cup of tea. It wasn't a movie based on a video game, but a movie based on video games. Wreck-It Ralph is the story of an arcade game character who has played the role of villain for 30 years and gets fed up with not being recognized for his efforts. So in order to prove that he can be a hero, he travels through electrical cords to other games.
The visuals is quite an odd mix, in a good way. Many characters can look like sprites (A collection of pixels) of their 3d selves in the view of kids, and some more modern characters are given more definition than others.
Many franchise characters are given cameos, but the biggest notable mention was Sonic's cameo, complete with Roger Craig Smith as the voice actor. Overall, it was a torrent of intellectual property that makes the gamer in me plum giddy.
The movie is good in terms of plot, music, and comedy for kids to adults. Just watch out for Kano's 'Fatality' early in the film.
