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.

Payoff

By BTophat
Written November 03, 2012
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

Retro & heart warming

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.

The Return of the Character Comedy

By tc67
Written November 04, 2012
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.
