    facebook.com/TheBrettside: Wreck-it-Ralph is retro-pop family fun

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Mrsoundbite is a regular film critic on iReport. He says "Wreck-it-Ralph" is a family friendly Disney movie that features retro videogame characters, trying to come to terms with their place in a high resolution gaming world.
    - Jareen, CNN iReport producer

    The bad guy in an old video game is about to become the good guy in a new movie. It's a wreck the whole family should enjoy.
    The bad guy in a low resolution '80s video game is a reluctant villain who tears down buildings with his sledgehammer fists. He's ready for a change in today's high resolution world in Wreck-it-Ralph, in 3D.
    In order to break out of his bad guy image Ralph travels to grand game central, where access to every video game in the world is. If he can win a few levels, who knows, he may become that good guy he has always wanted to be. The clever writing and character development is met with a solid voice over cast which includes John C. Reilly as Ralph, Sarah Silverman as the voice of Vanellope, and Jane Lynch as commander Calhoun. There are dozens of retro games for the grown-ups and a solid storyline for the kids.
    As in the tradition of "Toy Story" this film does a great job of imagining the secret lives of children's playthings. Wreck-it-Ralph is clever, action packed, and original…but there are nearly 190 unique characters in this movie, and that does clutter things up a bit, for my taste. The flick-o-meter gives Wreck-it-Ralph a four out of five. The film is, like so many other Disney movies, about being comfortable being yourself. That's what the 3 or 4 main characters try to convey but they all got lost towards the end of movie, competing for screen time with dozens of other throw-back characters.
    Let me know what you think. Head to my Facebook page, it's called TheBrettside, and click like.
