Whether your idea of video games is limited to flinging Angry Birds or you’re a joystick junkie weaned on Asteroids, Wreck-It Ralph is an inventive, subversive kick. Filled with colourful cameos, the film delivers a funny, yet surprisingly emotional journey with terrific voice performances and a richly detailed, animated world.
Ralph (John C. Reilly) is tired of being the villain of his Donkey Kong–like video game – smashing things so that hero Fix-It Felix (Jack McBrayer) can put them back together – so he takes off across the arcade in hope of hitting the reset button on his life. Stumbling clumsily from game to game, Ralph’s meddling causes a whole pile of video game characters to come together, and it’s up to Ralph to become the hero he always dreamed of becoming. Game on.
