Directed by Rich Moore

The movie is full of entertainment and will appeal to a wide audience of both young and old, the video game references will be well received by older viewers, the younger viewers will love the rest the movie has to offer.

Wreck-It Ralph is a 3D computer animated action comedy film produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios not the usual Disney/Pixar combination, and it is the 52nd animated feature in the Walt Disney Animated Classics series, after Winnie the Pooh 2011.

The movie takes me back to the old days when graphics wasn’t key when making a video game, just fun. I loved seeing M Bison and Zangief from Street Fighter.

Wreck-It Ralph is a complete package of laughter, fun and some deep emotional tone, good for everyone.

My high in this movie is the support group for video game villains, all the villains had issues with being tagged as the bad guy.

Wreck-It Ralph (voiced by Reilly) is a character in a video game. He is the bad guy and the game's protagonist, and his antagonist is the game's perfect Good Guy, Fix-It Felix (voice of McBrayer).

Ralph is fed up with being the bad guy, as he wishes he too could get a hero’s medal. At a bar he runs into a first-person shooter game character that was running out of his mind and Ralph took the advantage. He knocked out the character from the first-person shooter game, took his gear and set himself up to be used to accomplish the game's objective so as to get a medal.

Things took a turn for the worse when Ralph found out that the character he was impersonating was in a game that was wild and dangerous. He panicked wrecked the gameplay and while the others were resetting for another run, Ralph broke all protocols as he went after the medal, he so desperately craved.

The craving led to him breaking into another arcade game meeting Vanellope von Schweetz (voiced by Silverman), a young troublemaking "glitch" from a candy-coated cart racing game. Vanellope was different, and her happy mood and goal getting behaviour turned Ralph’s life around and showed him that there is more to life than his selfish ambition of being accepted by everyone.

Wreck it Ralph is directed by Rich Moore who is best known for his work in the Simpsons.

The movie had been in production since the 80s, but had been pushed back a lot. Disney finally went ahead and just like Who Framed Roger Rabbit 1988 they featured a lot of cameo characters. They featured characters from many video games like Clyde the orange ghost from Pac-Man, Doctor Eggman from Sonic the Hedgehog, and Bowser from Super Mario Bro.

Rich Moore dropped an idea that he and Disney may do a sequel that may cross in to online and console gaming. Wreck it Ralph is one movie that you will enjoy on a nice afternoon with your kids or a group of your friends, who will be thrilled to see some old favourite villains. It is a fun movie and I highly recommend that you get a taste of it.
