Synopsis


Wreck-It Ralph
An 8-bit video-game character attempts to shed his bad-guy image by escaping into a popular first-person shooter, but inadvertently wreaks havoc in the video-game universe by freeing a digital villain who can only be contained with the help of a most unlikely ally in this colorful animated adventure. Wreck-It Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly) is the arch nemesis of Fix-It Felix (voice of Jack McBrayer), one of the most beloved video-game icons of all time. In a noble bid to prove he is more than the sum of his programming, Ralph sneaks from his cozy retro home into a highly advanced combat game featuring battle-hardened soldier Sergeant Calhoun (voice of Jane Lynch), and strives to prove his bravery by winning a medal. In the process, however, Ralph accidentally frees the greatest threat the video-game world has ever seen. But all hope is not lost, because if Ralph can just convince unpredictable cart racer Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Sarah Silverman) to help set things right, perhaps he can finally unleash his inner hero and save the arcade from certain destruction. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Have you ever felt like you were stuck in a role you never wanted to play? Constantly subjected to scorn and ridicule simply for performing the only task available to you? What if you could change that? Fix-it Felix Jr. has been a popular game in Litvak’s for years. The hero and titular character, Felix (voiced by Jack McBrayer) has a magic hammer that can repair any damage done by the game’s villain, Ralph. When the game is over, Felix is given a medal while Ralph (voiced by John C. Reilly) is tossed off the roof by the tenants of the building he failed to destroy. When the arcade closes and the game is turned off, Ralph returns to his home atop a garbage heap in the nearby dump. For recreation, he visits Tapper’s, a vintage game that assigns the player the role of a bartender. Also, upon our introduction to the story, Ralph makes his first visit to a support group for video game villains. Among the villains in attendance at Bad-Anon, we see M. Bison and Zangief from Street Fighter (voiced by Gerald C. Rivers and director Rich Moore respectively), a ghost from Pac-Man (voiced by Kevin Deters), and a zombie (Raymond Persi). During that meeting, he announces he no longer wants to be a bad guy. With the 30th anniversary of Fix-it Felix Jr., the tenants throw a party and “forget” to invite Ralph. Ralph crashes the party, in every sense of the word, and leaves soon after. Before he’s left, he vows to return with a medal, something denied him by Felix and the tenants of the building he destroys. He seizes the opportunity to travel to a new game, a first-person shooter game called Hero’s Duty, when a character from that game passes out in the bathroom. While at the center of Hero’s Duty, Ralph is overwhelmed by the violence in modern games and refuses to heed the orders of his superior, Sergeant Calhoun (voiced by Jane Lynch). Once the arcade closes and the game ends, Ralph decides to forego the usual hurdles of Hero’s Duty and steal the medal typically awarded to the winner. After stealing the medal and, unwittingly, bringing a menacing enemy insect known as a Cy-bug with him, Ralph heads to the kart-racing game Sugar Rush. It’s there that he encounters the perpetually glitchy and terminally annoying Vanellope von Schweetz (voiced by Sarah Silverman). Despite the initial friction, Ralph and Vanellope (Silverman) bond over their shared status as outcasts. There is, of course, more to the story including Felix’s pursuit of Ralph into the various other games and his budding romance with the no-nonsense Sergeant Calhoun, the true origin of Silverman’s character, and an eventual revolt in the world of Sugar Rush. All of it, and I do mean all of it, had me riveted. I will say that, as a fan of old-style video games, I would’ve preferred seeing the character of Ralph travel to more than just the two different games besides his. Regardless of my criticisms, Wreck-It Ralph is hilariously entertaining and fun for viewers of all ages. Check it out.

    Universal appeal and expert-level fidelity

    This Blu-ray is a worthy purchase for anyone. It's honest, light-hearted humor will appeal to kids, adults and give winking nods to gamers throughout the entire film. The tale centers around Wreck-It Ralph, an oversized 80's video game villain from the Donkey Kong-like game "Fix-It Felix Jr." In the modernized arcade where the cabinet containing the Fix-It Felix game exists, things happen when the lights go out. Characters from the arcade's game convene in a central area accessed through the power cords that connect them to the wall outlets. Cameos from quite a large group of video games appear, such as Sonic the Hedgehog, Super Mario Bros., Pac-Man and many more. The main character, Ralph doesn't enjoy being the bad guy, and leaves his game one day to find a place which treats him like the good guy he wants to be. He eventually enters other games, looking for this place and meets a cast of characters that are funny and charming. Voicing these characters are Sarah Silverman, John C. Reilly and Jane Lynch among others. Being a Disney computer animated movie, as expected the visual fidelity is astounding. There is no point in this movie that isn't a marvel to look at. Colors are vivid and expertly saturated, and the animation is fluid and wonderfully represents the video game world that it pulls you into. In a nod to "old-school" gaming, there are a few funny moments involving these well-rendered characters performing their in-game animations from their old games that they live in, limited-frames and all. There are no visual artifacts or washing out of colors throughout the whole film, with a smooth frame rate and great scene framing. This movie will show off your home theater brilliantly. The sound quality is nothing short of amazing. All voices are clear and show off the slick acting and subtle moments that shine through during the story. The surround mix is discrete and remarkable. During the moments where an old arcade game is being played, the sound is cleverly mixed depending in the location of the viewer, be it watching from the player's side or from within the game from Ralph's perspective. A wonderful sense of space becomes evident throughout the entire film. There are several vast settings that use different techniques to achieve this. There is a modern "Call of Duty" setting that Ralph makes his way into that shows off a full-scale sci-fi army setting, complete with explosions and a bug-like swarm of enemies, and you'll hear them before you see them. Overall the film is not scary for children and yet has a universal appeal to kids and adults alike. So many nods are to gamers here, that for a moment you might get your gamer kid to sit down and watch this movie with the whole family, which as a gamer myself, is truly a feat in and of itself!

    Wreck-It Ralph, beyond anything else, was filled with imagination. The excitement and thrills that I remember from the movies that I grew up with were all there in the film. It was so refreshing to see such a beautifully constructed world, breathed into life by the brilliant imagineers at Disney. It did not take much past the title screen to fall into their world, and immediately find the truth in it. Disney takes many of the beloved video game characters, some everyone probably knows and some only select super fans will recognize, and throws them all into one video game universe. At first, this idea confused me. How would you combine the worlds of Nintendo and Sony or even Sega? Well, Disney waved their wand and made magic. Instead of combining all these characters into a compromised Mario realm or Sonic world, Disney creates a brand new world that welcomes new comers and old comers alike seamlessly. As a kid raised on Disney, then grew away from Disney, and now coming to terms with what all Disney has taught me, I think I have viewed Disney in many different lights. Now, after watch Wreck-It Ralph, I'm back on board with Disney. They have such heart in their work, and Wreck-It Ralph is filled with important messages about love, acceptance, being yourself, and standing up for what's right. It touched me at 22 and it touched my family members that were 7 and 8. Even my parents enjoyed seeing some of their favorite video game characters from the 80s making cameos and being referenced throughout the film. In all, Wreck-It Ralph is touching and sweet. It is very much Disney while staying current and up to date with the world. I recommend this film for anyone in need of a good laugh, a good cry, and a reminder that you are perfect just the way you are!

    So if you liked arcade games as a child or even now, you will love this movie, it takes you into the Possible Arcade universe where Characters are allowed to enter other games, when the arcade is closed for the night. In this you find Heart, Friendship, Courage, and Laughter, But not all is good. There is still a Protagonist, and a lesson about leaving your comfort zone in search of something more, It has passion to follow ones dreams, and reality about achieving them. Plus the songs are Awesome. I am sure your kids will fall in love with The little Girl that Glitches, and with the Character that made her whole, as she completed him as well. Not all relationships are Made from The most likely place, but here, you will find family. along the way. One of the best Animated movies in Years.

    Best Movie for the video game kid generation!

    Starting with the opening sequence including a spoof of an Al-anon meeting, complete with the pros and cons of group therapy, a loveable oaf of a main character struggling with identity issues, societal labelling, and the black/white, good/bad thinking that are a hallmark of disfunctional family origins, you know you are in an animated film with enough color and action to satisfy the ADD-est of children, while at the same time in deep enough water to carry an adult audience as well. It is rare that a film can handle both. This one does. You and your family will enjoy it again and again. Besides, it will give older parents a conversation basis to discuss real life with their kids who dwell in this new world of gaming jargon and how use it to for real world application. Highly recommended.

    Film was disappointing to me-no big deal

    2012 a disappointing year for Disney animation. Brave was just ok. So is this one. You would have figured Disney would have made this enjoyable IF you are older or NOT into video games. They did not. Unless you are a little kid or a video game fan you will not really care. Took long enough to get into the point nor important characters. Now, A HUGE DISLIKE OF THIS AS THEY RECENTLY DID WITH THE FIRST BLU RAY RELEASE TO THE 1953 CLASSIC "PETER PAN". If/when you push pause instead of getting the film to pause you get five second until unnecessary stuff pops up on the screen. A few years ago Disney gave up on going good jobs on DVD releases & they were ONLY to blu rays. THAT HAS STOPPED This is a four disc set, the discs are put in only two spots so if you want one at the bottom you have to pull two discs out. NO art work on the discs anymore. Cheap, cheap, cheap & so disappointing Disney. No special extras on this at all. So, the film is disappointing unless you are a kid or a video game fan, blu ray/DVD package also a disappointment.

    Best enjoyed by "kids" from the 80's

    The plot of the movie is creative, and Disney finds ways to make life inside an arcade game its own unique experience. Half the fun may be lost to younger viewers, though. The challenge for we, the first bonafide gamer generation, is to look carefully at the surrounding characters and see how many you can identify from classic arcade games. Even so, there are a few plot ideas that don't wash. The chief being that "unplugging" a video game, or any computer, will wipe out the memory content (aka. the game and its characters). Moreover, while the point is stressed that characters who die outside their respective games won't regenerate, that doesn't seem to stop the "unplugged" characters (i.e. Q-bert) from making a new home in another game. Still, it's a good, well-acted film. I truly enjoy it.
