So, it’s always a little nerve racking when Disney chooses to go down the PG road but this time they did a phenomenal job. Wreck-It Ralph starring John C. Reilly, Jack McBrayer and Jane Lynch, directed by Rich Moore is an absolutely entertaining movie. This film is along the same lines as Toy Story except in a video game world. Based off the trailer, you get a feeling that the story is revolving around a bunch of these different old school video game characters but it doesn’t do that at all. The way they did it is kind of like Shrek – you see a bunch of recognizable fairy tale characters with whom the main characters briefly interact, but that’s pretty much it. Do you need to know a lot about video games when you enter this movie? No. But if you are a video game nerd, it’ll increase your interest most definitely.
What did I like about this movie? A whole lot! The casting is absolutely phenomenal! Jane Lynch plays this badass general and executes the character traits perfectly, no one could play Ralph better than John C. Reilly, and Jack McBrayer’s voice is excellent for Felix. Sarah Silverman is the voice of Vanellope and even she executed an annoying little girl phenomenally! The score is absolutely beautiful and just takes your ears step by step throughout the movie. My absolute favorite thing about this movie is the creativity! Every detail in every video game is so spot on and just…creative! Disney never really has a problem with that. There are little giggles throughout and perfectly placed hard laughs that keep your ass planted in the seat wanting more. Last but not least, the heart warm, tear jerking typical Disney story to which we can all relate is really just the cherry on top of a fantastic film.
There isn’t a whole lot that I didn’t like. There were a few slow parts but what movie doesn’t have those? Umm….yup, I’m drawing a blank here.
Wreck-It Ralph, I give you a 10/10! Perfect for kids and adults and I will definitely be purchasing it! Go see this movie! Take your kids, take your date, shit…go by yourself! Available in 2D and 3D!
