Grumpy arcade game villain Wreck It Ralph (voiced by John C Reilly) is fed up with being a villain, so sets out to break his programming and explore other virtual worlds
Ralph's job is to wreck things, and wreck things he does. Day in, day out, in arcade game Fix-It Felix Jr. One night, Ralph comes back home from a support group for video game villains troubled by their own nefariousness to find the rest of the Fix-It Felix gang celebrating the game's 30th anniversary without him. Crestfallen, he decides to strike out for pastures new, in doing so unwittingly unleashing a force that threatens the existence of not only his own game, but all the others in the arcade.
The retro gaming world in which Wreck-it Ralph unfolds has obviously been created with love by people who remember it well. It could easily and unfairly be confused with various shameless 21st century attempts to hitch a ride on cultural nostalgia favouring old over new for no particular reason beyond nostalgia itself. But the care and attention to detail with which Wreck-it Ralph has been put together goes beyond what would be necessary were this merely a cynical attempt to rake in the cash of ageing arcade game enthusiasts.
Hyperactive day-glo fizzy-pop family animation with a heartfelt message about staying true to yourself lurking underneath all the visual fireworks.
