Wreck-It Ralph


Video game baddie yearns for the hero life Discuss this article

Set in a universe of video games that sound real but aren’t, ‘sugar rush’ is an apt description for Disney’s latest, which has great highs but ultimately feels as undernourishing and frantic as an afternoon lost to Mega Man. Best to savour the visual gags: Especially in scenes depicting Felix (Jack McBrayer) and his family, the Pixar-less team has great fun mimicking a Nintendo-ish, herky-jerky animation style. Not retro enough? Wreck-It Ralph is preceded by Paperman, a romantic black and white short that seems aimed at parents nostalgic for The Apartment.
