As promised, I went to watch Wreck-It Ralph and I’m going to write a review on it.
This show was really amazing and I didn’t expect it to have such a good story line. I mean, it’s been ages since I’ve seen a movie that I can say ‘Wow, I really didn’t expect that to happen’ because most story lines are predictable. But this one, this was different.
Ralph (John C. Reilly) is the villain/antagonist in the game Fix it Felix Jr. and after 30 years of doing what he always does, he feels unhappy and tired that he isn’t appreciated and welcomed by the others in his game. After having a heated argument with one of the characters in his game, Gene (And boy, do I hate this guy. Okay sorry, back to the review), Ralph is determined to prove himself and come back a hero by earning a medal like Felix does. Only then, will he be acknowledged by the other characters in the game and be placed at the top of the cake together with the rest of them.
So Ralph goes to the Game Center and there, he joins the game Hero’s Duty and basically messes up the game while it’s being played. Sergeant Calhoun (who looks like the person voicing her, Jane Lynch) is introduced here. Meanwhile, Ralph climbs to the top of the tower to get the medal there. He accidentally hatches a Cy-Bug, the game’s main enemies and it clings onto him as he stumbles into an escape pod that launches him out of the game and into the game Sugar Rush, a candy go-karting game.
While trying to retrieve his medal that has landed on the highest branch of a tall tree, Ralph meets Vanellope von Schweetz (Sarah Silverman), a little girl who we will later come to know of as the glitch in the game. She is highly annoying when Ralph first meets her but later both of them make a deal when she uses his medal as her entry into the game’s race. Ralph will help build her her car and in turn, Vanellope will win the race and win back his medal.
This deal causes them to interact more and they become friends. We find out that Vanellope’s situation is very much like Ralph’s, just probably a little more pitiful because she can never leave her game Sugar Rush due to her being a glitch.
While all this is going on, Sergeant Calhoun and Felix have come over to Sugar Rush to find the Cy-Bug and Ralph. Felix eventually gets locked up by the Candy King and Sergeant Calhoun finds that the Cy-Bug has reproduced underground, which isn’t a good sign.
Ralph gets paid a visit by the Candy King and he explains to him why Vanellope cannot be allowed to race. A heart-breaking scene follows and Vanellope’s heart and car is smashed to pieces.
What happens in the end? What is the reason for Vanellope being a glitch that wasn’t supposed to exist? And what will happen to Sugar Rush now that the hatching of all the Cy-Bugs is imminent? And what will happen to Ralph? Go watch this show to find out 🙂
The twist at the ending of the story will truly surprise you and you will end the show with a smile on your face ^^
HAHAHA this scene was hilarious ^^
