Summary:

'Wreck-It Ralph' is extremely enjoyable animated film that succeeds thanks to the gorgoues visuals, the hilarious and heartwarming, nostalgia filled script and the intelligent direction. It’s also proof that Pixar aren’t the only animation-giants around anymore.

Ralph (John C. Reilly) is tired of being overshadowed by Fix-It Felix (Jack McBrayer), the “good guy” star of their game who always gets to save the day. But after decades doing the same thing and seeing all the glory go to Felix, Ralph decides he’s tired of playing the role of a bad guy. He takes matters into his own massive hands and sets off on a game-hopping journey across the arcade through every generation of video games to prove he’s got what it takes to be a hero. On his quest, he meets the tough-as-nails Sergeant Calhoun (Jane Lynch) from the first-person action game Hero’s Duty. But it’s the feisty misfit Vanellope von Schweetz (Sarah Silverman) from the candy-coated cart racing game, Sugar Rush, whose world is threatened when Ralph accidentally unleashes a deadly enemy that threatens the entire arcade. Will Ralph realize his dream and save the day before it’s too late? – (C) Disney

Now the relationship between the video-game industry and hollywood over the years hasn’t been the prettiest of affairs and to this date there still hasn’t been a successful adaptation on the big screen. But the fundamental problem with all those previous attempts was that they were limited to the constraints of what made their games loved by so many. So is film just another failure or is it the first proper adaptation that works?

Check out the video review below and let me know what you thought of the film in the comments section.
