Wreck it Ralph, the animated comedy about a video game villain who wants to be a hero, but inadvertently brings havoc to the place he lives, as he tries to do just that is a movie I’m glad to have finally watched.
What I like most about writer / director Rich Moore’s film is the general cleverness of the story and its execution. There’s a particular twist in the story that I didn’t see coming that stands out as a favourite moment.
Another element to enjoy about Wreck It Ralph is the animated cuteness. It’s not quite the baby Jack Jack from Incredibles 2 (2018)or the Minions (2015)kind of extreme cuteness, but it’s cuteness all the same.
Even though Wreck It Ralph is overall a good movie, it isn’t quite in my top ten list of favourite animated films. I blame my non-gamer status for this. Especially since I’m sure that those who’ve played all or most of the arcade games featured are very likely going to enjoy this movie that much more. Of all the games in the movie, I’ve only ever really played PacMan and Sonic the Hedgehog.
I know that by this point you’ve probably already seen this movie and its sequel – but if not, tune in to appreciate the smart execution and especially if you’re a fan of arcade games.
Wreck It Ralph stars John C. Reilly, Jack McBrayer, Jane Lynch and Sarah Silverman.
Happy Film Loving
