A Heartfelt, Enjoyable Film that Exceeds Expectations
Going into the theater, I wasn't expecting much. Fortunately, I was pleasantly surprised. Contrary to what the trailers imply, this movie doesn't require you to be in the know about videogames in order to enjoy yourself. It does not rely on the cameos and references to support the movie, they're just a bonus for those who grew up on gaming. Holding true to Disney standards, this movie is great for everyone. The story may seem familiar, but the way it's told is what makes this movie so involving. The main characters are charming and they develop into relatable people you genuinely care about. Ralph and Vanellope's relationship is just so perfect that it sets up one of the most emotional scenes in animated movie history. All of the actors do an excellent job, I can't think of a better cast. The colorful worlds within the movie are simply gorgeous and the soundtrack fits the movie impeccably. All of these elements combined make "Wreck-It Ralph" the best animated film of the year.
