Disney makes SO few movies engineered for young boys that when they do actually come out with one they get underappreciated by critics. The Rescuers franchise falls in there with The Great Mouse Detective, Dumbo, Robin Hood, Tarzan, Hercules and Treasure Planet. Those who claim it missed it's mark fail to realize that young boys like it's elements which are masculine in nature.
Bernard; the means well over protective nice guy, Jake; a self-confident manly-man and Cody; a young boy who wants to do what's right despite the consequences. These are elements that are sorely missing in modern Disney film.
To be frank, the real world elements do hit home with a realistic villain doing villainous things (in this case poaching and kidnapping).
I think people need to rewatch again, and realize not everything in Disney needs to be a 'musical'.
I really enjoyed this, despite most of the reviews which are unfortunately based on inherent bias.
like most Christian based movies with good heart that come from a good place. it seems that none of the good ones can escape the torch of the SJW who think it is glorifying to insult another's beliefs.
Either way the movie was very powerful and had a lot of great acting; in the end it shows us that things aren't always as we want or expect them to be.
So the real question Is when times are their darkest and you don't know where to turn... what do you believe, and in the end, Do you believe?
I would down vote this movie for having Sarah Silverman in it, but...
Wreck-it Ralph, breaks a LOT of defining stereotypes when we think about 'the bad guy/bully/villain' in society and completely ignores the characters obvious 'masculine' characteristics for a change. It is also a bad a** parody of video games and features both new and old characters from franchises which most of the younger generation of gamers probably never got the chance to know... still don't know why Sonic the Hedgehog was in the arcade though. But anyhow... the movie started a long tradition of 'de-vilifying' misunderstood and often times tragic history characters with a couple of flaws and even showcased one of the 'last deaths' of a Disney villain in an animated movie(if you think I'm joking, here are the animated tales which followed: Monster's University, Planes, Frozen, Big Hero 6, The Tinker Bell Franchise, Inside Out, The good Dinosaur, Zootopia, Finding Dory and Moana; yeah not a single villain death sequence).
Basically a child rip off of almost every 80's college movie (the group of misfits, the jock sorority, the evil dean I mean 'COME ON'!). But it is still great on the scale that it ties in well to the first movie and makes a great prequel.
