Ralph Breaks the Internet

"Every frame is bursting with life, colour, and clever jokes. It’s an unironic celebration of corporate monopoly that still feels sincere in its message." Independent

Showing Times

Six years on from plucky hit Wreck-it Ralph our likeable hero (voiced by John C Reilly) is enjoying life in the video arcade with his friend Vanellope (Sarah Silverman).  Nothing stays the same for long, though, and when the elderly arcade owner finally instals wifi, all of a sudden the arcade resounds with sound and fury, viral videos and vicious comments.  Vanellope finds out that the future of her game - her own future - is threatened in the general up-grade and she convinces a reluctant Ralph to journey with her into the internet to try to find a solution.  It's a phantasmagorical experience, full of vibrant novelty, and Ralph becomes alarmed that his one true friend might not want to return home.

Although this is a top Disney title the emotional maturity of it feels more like a title from sister studio, Pixar.  If Wreck-it Ralph was about the difficulties of finding friends, this is a natural progression, showing how friends need to talk about their concerns when they feel they may be growing apart.  It's a rock 'n roll ride and it works because it doesn't pander and it doesn't simplify, but the real key to it's success is that it has a big heart.
