Movie Info

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

Critic Reviews for Wreck-it Ralph

All Critics (185) | Top Critics (43)

  • Fizzy, colourful and intricately plotted, this 2012 pop meta-fiction from The Simpsons' Rich Moore does for vintage arcade games what Who Framed Roger Rabbit did for the Golden Age of Animation.

  • The film is nicely animated but confusing enough to be almost impenetrable at times.

    Feb 8, 2013 | Rating: 2/5
  • I found the idea of teens laying down their coins to play arcade games in this present day a strange, semi-intentional archaism - nostalgic wish-fulfilment on the part of the middle-aged people creating the movie.

  • Play an actual videogame instead.

  • Disney's found a lot to play with here, but you may find yourself itching to take the controls.

  • You'll either love it or you'll admire it, while wishing it would calm down and, I don't know, maybe pick up a book for a while.

    Thanks to extremely likable characters and a script that remains clever and unpredictable throughout, Wreck-It Ralph is not only a great film for families and adults alike, but also remains a nostalgia filled treat for gamers of all ages.

    An adrenalized pixar piece and probably one of the strangest, Wreck-It Ralph is choc full of references to our favourite arcade games like Pacman and Mario-Kart. Like most Pixar efforts, Wreck-It Ralph is an adult film disguised as a kids film and works wonderfully. John C. Reilly playing Ralph is fantastic as is the voice work of Jane Lynch and Alan Tydyk. The worlds are designed impeccably and its really fun from start to finish. The techno soundtrack featuring Skrillex works very well with the pixelated madhouse of the film.
