Review: Wreck-It Ralph (3D)

World of Blackout 77-Word Film Review

Wreck-It Ralph (3D)
Cert: PG / 92 mins / Dir. Rich Moore

Is it too early to start bandying around terms like "film of the year"? If you've liked any video game, ever, there's already plenty to love. But outside of the easter eggs, large*1 and small*2, the flawless animation and solid story, it's the voice-acting that really sells it. Reilly, Silverman and Lynch nail every scene perfectly.

A joy to watch from start to finish, this will be hard to beat.

Is the trailer representative of the film?

Did I laugh, cry, gasp and sigh when I was supposed to?

Does it achieve what it sets out to do?

Pay at the cinema, Rent on DVD or just wait for it to be on the telly?

Will I think less of you if we disagree about how good/bad this film is?

Will I watch it again?

Is there a Wilhelm Scream?

And because you won't be happy until I've given it a score...

*1 Including a very blunt Star Wars reference, and the only one I could see outside of the final segment being almost scene for scene like the TPM podrace ;)
*2 "Sheng Long was here". Just ace.
*3 During the first Hero's Duty segment.
