Ralph Breaks the Internet – Film Review

For every arcade fanatic Wreck-It Ralph and Ralph Breaks the Internet focuses on characters from vintage arcade games such as Sugar Rush Racing and Fix-it Felix are not games that exist outside of the movies franchise but are insured by Nintendo’s Donley King and Capcom’s Need for Speed Racing. There are references to real games throughout the film such as Pacman, Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat, and Sonic the Hedgehog.

The Story Continues

Taking place six years after saving the arcade from Turbo’s vengeance, the Sugar Rush arcade cabinet has broken, forcing Ralph and Vanellope to travel to the Internet via the newly-installed Wi-Fi router in Litwak’s Arcade to retrieve the piece capable of saving the game.

Personal View

I would rate the film an eight out of ten, given the mass assortment of characters ranging from new characters introduced through other games and the thirteen Disney princesses including Snow White, Aurora, Belle, Ariel, Moana, Tiana, Cinderella, Else, Anna, Merida, Mulan, Rapunzel, and Jasmine.

There isn’t much music despite it being a film about video game characters. There are many pop-culture references that makes the movie seem overcrowded with the overall theme even though it is used for jokes. It was sweet watching the development of Ralph and Vanellope’s friendship and facing very readable obstacles in their visit to the internet..

Burned it!
