The Return of the Character Comedy

There was a time long ago when bit parts in great comedies were well written and well executed. It's back. Every detail of Wreck-It Ralph is superb - well written, well acted, well drawn. It's as rich in treats as the land of the game Sugar Rush it portrays. Kids and adults will like it. But that's an understatement. From the "aw shucks" country sincerity of Fix-it Felix whose "affection" is "rebuffed" despite his "honeydew" glow, to the full-metal-jacket starship trooper beauty is always speaks in awkwardly dire hyperbole, to to Sour Bill, the superbly glum herald of the kingdom of Sugar Rush, everything in Wreck-It Ralph has been lovingly rendered. It's chock full ofclever references back to, well, every computer game ever. But it also harkens back to such landmark films The Wizard of Oz - not just in references the O-E-O guards of the wicked witch - but also in the lavish attention to detail that made old-school films great. This is comic film making at its finest.

Unique twist on video games. Amazingly, managed to get me liking the characters. Interesting plot turns. Who would think you could say such a thing about an animation like this. Yes, a bit sappy, but simple, fun, escapist entertainment that will make you smile and may even wet an eye momentarily.

Amazing! Toy Story meets video games

By Chibi-Acer

This movie was awesome! It's what you would get if you took Pixar's Toy Story concept and applied it to video games instead of toys. It's a glimpse of what video game characters do when we're not playing them, along with several other themes that make for a great story and lovable characters. Any gamer who grew up in the Nintendo era is probably going to love this movie. There are lots of cameo appearances from other games, though that's just a part of what made this movie so great. Lots of laughs, action, and a bit of drama make this great for gamers of all ages!

Enjoyed this movie a lot with my 8 year old and 10 year old. Good storyline, great animation and lots of laughs (even a tear or two!).

Not Your Average "Kids" Movie

By WiseAngel2
Written November 04, 2012
My whole family really enjoyed Wreck-It Ralph. This movie isn't much like the way it is being advertised. It is funny in parts, but it is mostly a heartwarming tale about outcasts, being true to who you are, and the potential that lies in all of us. Some of the themes and messages younger kids may not understand, but although she sat intently watching, my tween (11) loved it and caught all they were trying to portray. This movie should definitely be on your go see list. Enjoy!!
