Not in my wildest dreams did I ever anticipate using the word "thoughtful" to describe a fairly recent animated film.

As flawed and derivative it may be, "Wreck It Ralph" is still a very fine animated fantasy with a keen sense of creativity and wit...

A bubbly, buoyant treat with near-Pixar levels of heart.

Ralph's arms may be gorilla like, his fists gigantic hammers, but Reilly imbues him with rue and courtliness.

An excellent, inventive, anti-bullying adventure that may be a little too technologically advanced for older audiences.

Wreck-It Ralph is a highly original and exciting film that puts Disney Animation right up there with Pixar in terms of providing a story full of emotion, heart and energy.

Hyperactive day-glo fizzy-pop family animation with a heartfelt message about staying true to yourself lurking underneath all the visual fireworks.

Once again Disney has created an immersive world that's rich with detail, populated by characters who have problems humans can identify with and characteristics that make them likable. "Wreck-It Ralph" is a winner.

A very clever, delightfully funny and visually stunning Disney film. And yet we end up watching it having already seen its potential to be something much more enticing.

The prospect of inevitable sequels is more than bearable.

For some, Ralph's spell in Sugar Rush's candy-coloured world may induce hyperglycaemia... but hard-core gamers will have a blast picking up all the gaming in-jokes and references that fly over everyone else's heads.

Just like the camera gave us the heads of Frankenstein and Hellboy, so we always get Ralph's giant hands first here.

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

Warm, witty, wacky and wonderful, Wreck-It Ralph deserves to stand alongside the best of Disney, while also feeling like it wouldn't be out of place at Pixar's table.

Visually ambitious and packed with inside jokes for arcade gamers, this colourful animated adventure is an enjoyable romp but is probably too energetic for its own good.

This is a hugely enjoyable entry in the Walt Disney Animation Studios catalogue. It sits well alongside the likes of Tangled, balancing both anarchic humour and classic Disney sentimentality very well.

Wreck-It Ralph is witty, ingenious and entertaining, a technical and creative breakthrough on a par with Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, 25 years ago.
