Who in the holy hot cakes are YOU?
With all the different platforms out there It’s very rare these days to find a film that’s original, everything’s either based on something, such as a book, or a remake/Re-imagination of another film. However here is a film that’s bright, original and very entertaining for both kids and adults.
The film revolves around Ralph (voiced by John C. Reilly), who’s the main villain/bad guy in the popular arcade game “Fix-it Felix”. Fed up of always being the bad guy, Ralph “game jumps” in hope of earning himself a medal to prove that he too can be a good guy. His journey takes him to a game called “Sugar Rush”, a candy-coated racing game, where he befriends Vanellope von Schweetz (voiced by Sarah Silverman).
Here we have a film that is based around video games and yes some actual video game characters make an appearance such as; Pac-Man, Sonic, Ken, Ryu, Zangeif, Bison and Kano to name a few.
It was fun spotting video game characters in a Disney film, as well as some other video game themes, there’s hardly a minute that goes by where there isn’t something that references a video game. Unlike many video game themed films this one’s actually good!
As well as being appealing to gamers it also has that usual Disney magic which appeals to both kids and adults. The film did have that “Toy Story” feel about it, by which I mean things coming to life when left alone.
Cast members include
John C. Reilly as Ralph
Sarah Silverman as Vanellope von Schweetz
Jack McBrayer as Fix it Felix
Jane Lynch as Calhoun
What I found funny was the fact that Ralph and Calhoun actually looked like the actors.
If you’re looking for a film to take the little ones to or you’re a gamer check out Wreck It Ralph. You won’t be disappointed, in cinemas now.
