Movie Info

In "Ralph Breaks the Internet," video-game bad guy Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly) and best friend Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Sarah Silverman) leave the comforts of Litwak's arcade in an attempt to save her game, Sugar Rush. Their quest takes them to the vast, uncharted world of the internet where they rely on the citizens of the internet--the Netizens--to help navigate their way. Lending a virtual hand are Yesss (voice of Taraji P. Henson), the head algorithm and the heart and soul of the trend-making site "BuzzzTube," and Shank (voice of Gal Gadot), a tough-as-nails driver from a gritty online auto-racing game called Slaughter Race, a place Vanellope wholeheartedly embraces--so much so that Ralph worries he may lose the only friend he's ever had.

Critic Reviews for Ralph Breaks the Internet

All Critics (258) | Top Critics (41)

  • Movies don't get more timely than Ralph Breaks the Internet - an exhilarating yet dismaying sequel to 2012's Wreck It Ralph, for my money easily the smartest and most endearing Disney animated feature of recent years.

  • Conceptually, it's rather ingenious, with well-aimed barbs at abusive commenter culture and social-media narcissism that adds up to a welcome moral for small fry...

  • Best of all, the directors don't shy away from the ending their story demands.

  • The nuanced friendship between Ralph and Vanellope remains the most engaging part of the film, once you've overcome the slight weirdness of a hulking man being best mates with a small girl.

  • Surprisingly enjoyable, if not predictable.

  • It's pretty incredible to see how the filmmakers easily and boldly slip concepts right from the therapist's office into the wild rumpus through the internet.

    It's Disney doing the Emoji Movie. That's really what this is when it comes down to it. And honestly…it's not bad. I mean yeah it's still riddled with product placement and an egregious amount of Disney marketing, but it's still charming and funny enough that it kinda' works. While we've seen other movies and TV shows tackle this "internet as a city" concept before, seeing it with Disney talent is actually pretty cool. I liked eBay as a store, I liked pop up ads as annoying guys on the street, hell as ridiculously filtered as it was I even kinda' liked how they showed the Dark Web! Seriously, the Dark Web in a Disney movie! I mean they Nerfed the hell out of it but still, pretty crazy. However I do miss the video game elements that were such a big part of the original film, that really feel missing here. One of my favorite parts of this film is the online game Slaughter Race, and it's really cool to see how they handle online gaming, and handle a game that's basically Twisted Metal through a Disney filter which is pretty fun. However, it's just one game. I also found the handling of Ralph's character really clumsy here. He made mistakes in the first movie, but he had a good heart. Here, he makes some choices that make it really hard to root for him. Yeah he learns his lesson, but it makes his development in the original feel forgotten and he comes off really selfish. In the end it's a flawed but still really fun movie.

    There isn't a central bad guy here and I felt it robbed the film. The first film failed to deliver a true scary villain and played out like a Marvel film that focuses on the hero, even if he is flawed. This sequel is about the same quality for my liking and it delivers a lot of heart, but not a lot of substance. I don't know where the franchise can go from here and this film balances a tight rope of becoming a series that drops in quality with each film. There was something lacking with the film overall and I felt they attempted too much. Visually it's stunning and I tip my cap to the filmmakers on this. I think they could have played with the pop culture more, and that was my issue with the first film. I could not say this was better or worse, but as a continuation it elevates the heart of the franchise. 14/03/2018

    As a proud product of 2018, it is safe to say that this movie will soon be dated and half of its jokes will be lost for a new generation, but despite that (and the fact that the climax is a bit messy), it can be quite entertaining with its concept and design of an internet world.

    A sequel that surpasses the original, with a sweet story that is steeped in creativity and truly proves the animators at Disney have imagination galore. Well written and acted and Reily is winning again as Ralph. Very Funny to boot.! 02-17-2019
