Disney Wreck it Ralph Review

 Disney Wreck it Ralph UK review

We've just returned from Disneyland Paris after an amazing, 3 day press junket for the European release of Wreck it Ralph which is due for to hit the UK on the 13th February 2013.   I'll be blogging separately about our Disney experience, but for now, I want to tell you about the film which I am certain is going to be a sure fire hit.   

I initially thought it wouldn't be my sort of film, after all, a film about computer games held no appeal to me but as the boys are both Disney and computer nuts, I knew it would probably be something they would love.  I deliberately didn't read any reviews before I saw the film as I wanted to have a totally unbiased, fresh approach to the film and I can say I was perhaps naive in thinking that just because the film wasn't about something I was/am interested in that I wouldn't enjoy it.  

This has all the hallmarks of a Disney classic, in much the same way that "The Wizard of Oz" captivated audiences by merging black and white with Technicolour, (look out for the references to the Wizard of Oz in the film BTW) Wreck it Ralph takes us on a journey through the video game arcades from the 80s inspired eight bit, "fix it Felix" (of which our hero Ralph features) through to the 90s in the land of "Sugar Rush" (think Mario or Sonic, fast and furious) before finally crash landing into Hero's Duty which is centred around the tough and incredibly feisty world of fighting against a Cy-bug invasion.


The film has several main characters who are all on a mission of sorts.  "Wreck it Ralph" has long lived in the shadows of his nemesis "Fit it Felix" and finally, after not being invited to his games 30th anniversary party, he sets off on a mission to get himself a medal, to prove his worth.  This takes him into all the other computer game Worlds via the geniusly named "Game Central Station" and we are introduced to lots of characters that you are sure to recognise from the past and present.  There is a real story of friendship and loyalty within the film and in true Disney tradition, good overcomes evil with a bittersweet ending.  That's all you are going to get from me as I don't want to ruin it for you!

This is such a clever film that transcends age barriers and generations, it will appeal to parents and children alike and you can't help but be utterly charmed by the characters and their ways.

“Wreck-It Ralph” crashes onto the big screen on February 15, 2013, in Disney Digital 3D™ in select cinemas throughout the UK.

We all adored the film with the kids giving it a massive 10/10 and can't wait for its release, we'll definitely be going to see it again.

Finally,in the words of our hero Ralph, "I am bad and that is good, I'll never be good and that's not bad".

Peace and Love
