Play an actual videogame instead.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
October 28, 2012
Nothing but broad, pandering indexes tailored to appeal to the arcade wistfulness it never even bothers to convincingly evoke.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

It's a lovely pretext for dazzling visuals, yet the production is diminished by the clumsiness of an 8-bit script.

If only the Konami Code could fix this script.

Disney can dress it up, take it out to the arcade and plug it full of quarters ... but at the end of the cord, the film's a simple, 8-bit I-gotta-be-me story, with a dull plot and tepid characters. Game over.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10

'Wreck-It Ralph' is a clutter of noise, eye-wearying animation, frenetic action and two-dimensional characters.

I do not care one bit about video games. Even if I did, I suspect I wouldn't be a fan of the loud and frenzied "Wreck-It Ralph."

Unlike the Pixar films toward which it aspires-which marry sophisticated conceits to straightforward storylines-Wreck-It Ralph consistently gets lost in its own intricate plot mechanics.
November 1, 2012
Wreck-It Ralph feels like so many modern AAA gaming titles-a promising starting point for an inevitable, improved sequel.
November 2, 2012
Those who've played and programmed the games over the decades will find some fun with in-jokes involving the likes of Pac-man and Q*bert but anyone else over the age of ten will likely be bored.

It's pure plastic product from plot line to the pro forma 3-D to the tidy moral lessons - ersatz family entertainment as disposable as it is diverting.

November 1, 2012
Starts out as a funny high scorer but limps into a second half as flat as those quarters we once pumped into arcade machines long ago.

The biggest disappointment of all is that John Lasseter is executive producer. Unfortunately, "Ralph" can't hold a candle to his prior creations.
November 4, 2012
A brilliant concept in search of a movie. Starts off really strong with sly humor and wit that devolves into cheap kiddie jokes.

February 7, 2013
The chubby 3D animation, smart-alecky product placement and potty humour all capped my enthusiasm about halfway to total delight.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
November 1, 2012
Sweet enough but in the end a bit of a corny-syrupy wipeout, this is middling family-night fare, but it never even comes close to the emotional or technical wizardry of Pixar's finest moments.

November 2, 2012
Emphasizes action and eye-popping visuals over emotion.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
November 2, 2012
The story pushes a heartfelt message, but the humorous antics are pitched at a strictly juvenile level that will have parents yawning while their children roar in approval.
