Wreck-it Ralph Reviews
There are so many fantastic things about Wreck-It-Ralph. The way that the video game characters travel, the actual characters. Everything is so creative, detailed, and original.
By far though, the plot is the real shining star. You are on one side, but then you have to switch to another side, and then you have to switch sides again. It's an emotional roller coaster, and the ending ties everything with a nice, pretty bow.
As far as negatives....I can't think of any outshining ones. The middle of the movie is kind of slow, but the twists and turns in the plot keep you engaged.
In the end, Wreck-It-Ralph touched my heart and actually made me cry. Highly recommend, and would definitely watch again.
After decades of this existence, Ralph yearns to escape, and that's the excuse for the movie to break free from the confines of its game. Ralph journeys through power cables and a surge projector to a place named Grand Game Central, where iconic arcade characters can travel and socialize. Wanting to finally gain recognition and acceptance of the Nicelanders, Ralph ventures out to find proof that he too, can be a ?good-guy?. This effectively sets the stage for conflict and misadventures that come to follow, ultimately allowing Ralph to find not only recognition and respect, but himself as well.
In comparison to other animated films of its time, the design principles and color palette of "Wreck-It Ralph" are unprecedented, dazzling, and nothing short of incredible, created by high-end animation software including Maya, Houdini, etc. From the cutesy sparkles in Sugar Rush, all the way to the frenetic steam and flying ash effects in Hero?s Duty; The visuals offer unlimited sets, costumes and rules, giving the movie tireless originality and unique life in every cyber world that the viewer is immersed in.
Originally making his mark through work on the popular TV show, The Simpsons, director Rich Moore incorporates a familiar concept deviating from ?Toy Story?s? clandestine world, when the arcade shuts, the machines come to life ? a concept loaded with its own set of rules such as never jumping between games. In this sense, Wreck-It Ralph is unique among the few videogame-themed movies that exist today ? it actually displays a genuine love for its subject, jam-packed with a clever balance of timeless, 8-bit humor and mild jeopardy that viewers of all ages can deeply appreciate. While younger viewers will most likely be attracted to the stunning CG visuals and witty character of Vanellope von Schweetz, seasoned gamers are invited to spot Sonic the Hedgehog, Pac Man, among the countless other cameos that clutter Game Central Station. Even adults, who may feel less persuaded to see such a movie, are offered sanctuary with the unlikely blooming romance between Felix Jr. and Jane Lynch?s dominatrix Marine, Calhoun. ?Wreck It Ralph? truly is a rare family film that speaks to two generations at once. Both will come out satisfied, some more than others.
One feat that this film accomplishes surprisingly well is the effective portrayal of a role reversal, in the sense that the protagonist (Ralph) in reality, is only a villain in his video game. Despite being programmed as a villain however, there are a majority of scenes, including in the beginning that can evoke sympathy for Ralph from audiences. Other scenes, especially during his time with Vanillope and their growing friendship, show him as the kind, caring, and selfless person he truly is. Through his friendship with Vanillope that he learns what it truly means to be a hero. To top things off, the movie recharges for a hectic final act, throwing viewers into a wild ?Mario Kart-eqsue? goose chase. These principles provide rich and immersive, top-notch storytelling, assisted with the exceptional use of a wide variety of camera angles, visual effects, and character development. All of which are prevalent throughout the film, and worked harmoniously with the less glamorous ones, thus forming a well delivered, successful and cohesive film overall. I highly recommend this film for audiences both young and old; particularly those who hold an interest in arcade classics or lovers of Adam Sandler?s ?Pixels? (2015).
it blew my mind in 2012.
So I don't know why they did not put Mario in this film, they put the film in 1993 with the SMB Movie which it is a failure. they had Nintendo and SEGA
references in this film, Sonic and Bowser are in the Wreck-It Ralph film so they will make a sequel where they try to work on the Mario and Luigi Characters in it to render the models that where better, I will give this film 90% of fresh tomatoes
Wreck-It Ralph is heartwarming movie of a video-game character who doesn't want to be a villain anymore. I thought this was all the movie was about. I was wrong. Besides from making me laugh, Wreck-It Ralph had a deep story and was a great addition to the Disney family. The voice acting is incredible and the whole movie is excellent. Wreck-It Ralph is one of the must-see movies of 2012.
