Wreck-It Ralph – Film Review


Video gamers may disagree, but despite the Oscar nomination for best animation, this isn’t at all one of Disney’s best, though it has a decent idea to start it off and efficiently crafted animation.  Sorry guys, I just didn’t like the characters, the weak puns, the sickly designs or the silly story.

John C Reilly provides the dull voice of the boring hero Ralph, a video game villain who wants to be a hero like Fix-It Felix (Jack McBrayer) and jumps games to the sci-fi world of Heroes Duty featuring tough-as-nails Sergeant Calhoun (voice of Jane Lynch) and then to the candy land world of Sugar Rush. Its ruler, King Candy (Alan Tudyk), is a bearable creation as a fussy traditional Disney character of the old school kind but the Vanellope von Schweetz character, a trouble-making ‘glitch’ voiced by Sarah Silverman, is especially annoying, though she’s supposed to be cute and even adorable.

Who’s it aimed at apart from very small kids, probably mainly little girls like Vanellope? No sequel please. Game over.
