Equally entertaining for both kids and parents old enough to catch the references, Wreck-It Ralph is a clever, colorful adventure built on familiar themes and joyful nostalgia.

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.
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.
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.
It's a cool game, to be sure, but watching someone else play it gets old after a while.
For anyone with a grade-schooler and a free Saturday, it's a pretty safe and painless bet. And a great excuse to go up to the attic later and see if you can dig out your old Atari 2600.
So some things to like but overall just not my cup of tea I suppose... Not everything needs or should be made for my interest and tastes. I can deal with that.
The arcade is just window dressing for a sugar rush of child-friendly product placement.
The script allows Ralph an evolution that is rare even in live action, going from grumbling nemesis to true hero without ever losing his Hulk-smash giant fists.
Reilly seems made for voice work. He turns his 8-bit Ralph into a man with a 32-bit heart.
All in all, it's a sweet animated adventure with heart.
Ralph Breaks the Internet, a more complete film with a bigger and more evolved story to share, doesn't need parlor tricks to keep viewer interest.
It is not always that we see a visually stunning animation with such a well-written script full of originality, welcome references and dozens of narrative elements that are brought together so brilliantly into a very funny, entertaining and also incredibly moving experience.
A family feelgood movie that amuses and send a heartwarming message!
Reilly gives warmth to a big lug who only seems to destroy anything he touches (maybe somebody's goofy and kinda lost dad?), while Silverman gives understandable yearning to a soul aching to belong (a little girl lost?) ... can these two from broken homes fix the other's pain?
Over this quandry is an animated love-in visit to vid games of old, which helps to soften the sensitive subject matter. Pretty damn good if you ask me.
Absolutely fantastic!!! Fun!! Adorable!! A wonderful homage to coin-op video games. Great characters, and a good story well told.
