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.

I had seen the trailers several times and wasn't particularly impressed so when the kids started bugging me to go I wasn't exactly excited. However, the concept and story were really well done and the experience all up much better than expected, good fun for kids and adults alike.

First... love, love, love the short before the film.
This movie is a great kid's movie, an entertaining adult's movie, and a nostalgia trip for anyone that grew up with video games and/or frequented arcades.
Disney's attention to detail is impeccable.
For those with small children, there is some violence, use of futuristic lazer guns, and a few scary scenes. There's also some play on language such as someone being told "Don't be a ***** willow."
