Wreck-It Ralph (2012) – Movie Review

Wreck-It Ralph is a computer-animated comedy film directed by debutant Rich Moore, who has also co-written it with Phil Johnston, Jennifer Lee, and Jim Reardon. It is the 52nd film produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios. The film is available on Hotstar for streaming.

The film sets in a video game arcade, where all the characters from different games live a normal life when arcade gets closed at the end of every day. The film follows Ralph (John C. Reilly), a villain from one of the games, who loses every day and lives a lonely life. But, he also has a dream of becoming a hero, being respected and loved by everyone. To fulfill his dreams, he rebels against video game code and jumps to another video game where he meets a cute but mischievous young girl named Vanellope (Sarah Silverman). The rest of the film tells the story of Ralph’s quest which brings havoc to the whole arcade.

The story of the film is very sweet and heartfelt, an isolated guy is trying to seek the love and attention of the people around him. All the video game characters are relatable because whoever has played these games has a nostalgic feeling about it. And that is why, the film is engaging, and it has no single dull moment. Similar to Ralph, the other lead character, Vanellope, is also living an abandoned life in her game. And, when these two broken characters meet, they try to help each other out of the feeling of compassion and friendship. That’s where this film hit me, and it’s one of the nicest and genuine feelings. The film is joyful and colorful, a true visual treat to your eyes.

Verdict : The film is appealing to all the age-groups. A must watch to fill your day with colors and happiness.

Rating : 4/5
