Great story told in a way that is reminiscent of the great Pixar stories. John Lasseter's finger prints are indelibly stamped all over the narrative. The story is poignant form an adult point of view and filled with enough eye candy to get all the oohs and aahs you'll want from your kids.
I loved seeing all of my own childhood gaming "friends" coming back for some screen time. My daughter and I had to sit down in front of the computer back home so she could learn about Q-bert and others.

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!

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."

This movie appeals to the young and their parents! The old school famous video game characters who popped up throughout the movie kept me entertained & briefly sent me back to an innocent place in my childhood. There were a lot of good laughs as well as an important message. The 3D graphics and concept were absolutely brilliant. Im so glad my daughter talked me into this one. :O)

This movie has the exact lovely aroma of pay off... this is presented as a big THANK YOU gift to the 20 and 30 somethings that are regular fans and movie goers of disneys franchise. If disney simply wanted to make a movie about video games they could have. Wreck-It-Ralph is packed to the brim with geek and gamer payoffs that make you feel this was targeted directly to YOU. While anyone in the family can enjoy this movie those who grew up with video gaming will find this movie a very rewarding experience. Laughs are non stop and the more teenage/adult humor is well tongue in cheek and "hidden" from young ears. I have always loved disney movies but this one is something special see it and im sure you will agree. one of my biggest concerns about this movie was sarah silvermans involvement.. but i was relieved to find she is actually able to get through a movie without using the C word or making fun of her own Jewish roots...all in all great execution
