It doesn't quite carry the heft of Toy Story, but there's a lot of heart packed into these zeroes and ones.
Keith Staskiewicz - Entertainment Weekly
The movie invites a measure of cynicism - which it proceeds to obliterate with a 93-minute blast of color, noise, ingenuity and fun.
A.O. Scott - New York Times
The farcical story is cute, the dialogue witty and the players charming.
Claudia Puig - USA Today
Emphasizes action and eye-popping visuals over emotion.
Michael O'Sullivan - Washington Post
It's pure plastic product from plot line to the pro forma 3-D to the tidy moral lessons - ersatz family entertainment as disposable as it is diverting.
Ty Burr - Boston Globe
Wreck-It Ralph feels like so many modern AAA gaming titles-a promising starting point for an inevitable, improved sequel.
Nick Schager - Village Voice
It's a lovely pretext for dazzling visuals, yet the production is diminished by the clumsiness of an 8-bit script.
Joe Morgenstern - Wall Street Journal
'Wreck-it Ralph' is a serious contender for the title of best animated film of the year.
James Rocchi - MSN Movies
The art design and color palette of "Wreck-It Ralph" permit unlimited sets, costumes and rules, giving the movie tireless originality and different behavior in every different cyber word.
Roger Ebert - Chicago Sun-Times
You'll either love it or you'll admire it, while wishing it would calm down and, I don't know, maybe pick up a book for a while.
Michael Phillips - Chicago Tribune
Like a video game, Rich Moore's 3-D film is colorful, noisy, and pixel-deep.
Carrie Rickey - Philadelphia Inquirer
Think "Tron" with belly laughs. Or "Night at the Museum" with any laughs.
Colin Covert - Minneapolis Star Tribune
It's fun for awhile, but it's not a video game you'll come back to once you set down the controller.
Adam Graham - Detroit News
The film flies off in all sorts of directions, all of them rewarding. But the best trick is how screenwriters Phil Johnston and Jennifer Lee bring everything back together, even the seemingly least-related elements.
Bill Goodykoontz - Arizona Republic
There are a staggering number of rules governing the gameplay in Wreck-It Ralph, and one of the toon's greatest pleasures comes in how intuitively audiences discover those parameters as the story unfolds.
Peter Debruge - Variety
Amid all the boring crashing and chasing and slapstick, there are some brilliant flashes of wit (particularly a reference to the guards in the Wizard of Oz).
Kyle Smith - New York Post
Starts out as a funny high scorer but limps into a second half as flat as those quarters we once pumped into arcade machines long ago.
Linda Barnard - Toronto Star
An adorable winner ...
Laremy Legel - Film.com
Beneath the pixelated gags, the stakes are relatively familiar. However, much of the humor in "Wreck-It Ralph" riffs on the nostalgia associated with real games.
Eric Kohn - indieWIRE
It's impossible not to feel a strong sense of nostalgic amusement, if not sheer delight, at the comings and goings of all these characters.
Dave McGinn - Globe and Mail
Wreck-It Ralph never does anything groundbreaking with this idea, but it's cute and clever and evokes nostalgia for gamers of the '80s and '90s.
James Berardinelli - ReelViews
With a mix of retro eye-candy for grown-ups and a thrilling, approachable storyline for the tykes, the film casts a wide and beguiling net.
Justin Lowe - Hollywood Reporter
The most inventive and entertaining family movie I've seen this year, packed with wickedly smart humor and joyful animation.
Mary F. Pols - TIME Magazine
Wreck-It Ralph is the latest in a rash of recent movies fired up with imaginative risk. Director Moore brings a video junkie's passion to the movie game, and it's hilariously infectious.
Peter Travers - Rolling Stone
'Wreck-It Ralph' combines a fresh idea with a true love for retro pop culture. It's hard not to love this movie.
Richard Roeper - Richard Roeper.com
The movie's subversive sensibility and old-school/new-school feel are a total kick.
Betsy Sharkey - Los Angeles Times
Not in my wildest dreams did I ever anticipate using the word "thoughtful" to describe a fairly recent animated film.
David Keyes - Cinemaphile.org
As flawed and derivative it may be, "Wreck It Ralph" is still a very fine animated fantasy with a keen sense of creativity and wit...
Felix Vasquez Jr. - Cinema Crazed
an affectionate love note to computer games past
James Luxford - The National
A bubbly, buoyant treat with near-Pixar levels of heart.
Eric D. Snider
Ralph's arms may be gorilla like, his fists gigantic hammers, but Reilly imbues him with rue and courtliness.
Margot Harrison - Seven Days
An excellent, inventive, anti-bullying adventure that may be a little too technologically advanced for older audiences.
Wesley Lovell - Cinema Sight
Wreck-It Ralph is a highly original and exciting film that puts Disney Animation right up there with Pixar in terms of providing a story full of emotion, heart and energy.
Jeremy Lebens - We Got This Covered
Hyperactive day-glo fizzy-pop family animation with a heartfelt message about staying true to yourself lurking underneath all the visual fireworks.
Catherine Bray - Film4
Once again Disney has created an immersive world that's rich with detail, populated by characters who have problems humans can identify with and characteristics that make them likable. "Wreck-It Ralph" is a winner.
James Plath - Movie Metropolis
A very clever, delightfully funny and visually stunning Disney film. And yet we end up watching it having already seen its potential to be something much more enticing.
Matt Looker - TheShiznit.co.uk
The prospect of inevitable sequels is more than bearable.
Donald Clarke - Irish Times
For some, Ralph's spell in Sugar Rush's candy-coloured world may induce hyperglycaemia... but hard-core gamers will have a blast picking up all the gaming in-jokes and references that fly over everyone else's heads.
Jason Best - Movie Talk
Visually ambitious and packed with inside jokes for arcade gamers, this colourful animated adventure is an enjoyable romp but is probably too energetic for its own good.
Rich Cline - Contactmusic.com
Just like the camera gave us the heads of Frankenstein and Hellboy, so we always get Ralph's giant hands first here.
Graham Young - Birmingham Mail
It's a little frantic at times but great fun, clever and well-crafted.
Henry Fitzherbert - Daily Express
A colourfully cute romp for kids.
Alan Jones - Radio Times
The film is nicely animated but confusing enough to be almost impenetrable at times.
Derek Malcolm - This is London
Warm, witty, wacky and wonderful, Wreck-It Ralph deserves to stand alongside the best of Disney, while also feeling like it wouldn't be out of place at Pixar's table.
James White - SFX Magazine
This is a hugely enjoyable entry in the Walt Disney Animation Studios catalogue. It sits well alongside the likes of Tangled, balancing both anarchic humour and classic Disney sentimentality very well.
Alex Zane - Sun Online
Wreck-It Ralph is witty, ingenious and entertaining, a technical and creative breakthrough on a par with Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, 25 years ago.
Christopher Tookey - Daily Mail [UK]
I found the idea of teens laying down their coins to play arcade games in this present day a strange, semi-intentional archaism - nostalgic wish-fulfilment on the part of the middle-aged people creating the movie.
It's a CGI time-machine for those who misspent their youth developing RSIs on bleeping 8-bit arcade consoles.
Jamie Dunn - The Skinny
Play an actual videogame instead.
Chris Blohm - Little White Lies
The chubby 3D animation, smart-alecky product placement and potty humour all capped my enthusiasm about halfway to total delight.
Tim Robey - Daily Telegraph
This is an engaging adventure with likeable characters and some nice ideas, though the pacing flags in the second half and there's a nagging sense of unexplored potential.
Matthew Turner - ViewLondon
Witty, inventive, beautifully animated and, most importantly, heartfelt.
Andy Lea - Daily Star
It's arguably the best Pixar-style feature from Disney that hasn't actually been made directly by its acquired, multi-Oscar winning arm.
Graham Young - Birmingham Post
Put a coin in the slot and sit back and enjoy; it's the best Pixar movie the studio didn't make, and there can be no higher praise.
Rich Phippen - Sky Movies
Disney's found a lot to play with here, but you may find yourself itching to take the controls.
Guy Lodge - Time Out
Disney have struck gold outside of their partnership with Pixar, delivering a riotous, sharp and stirring rollercoaster ride of an animated film, reinforced by clever, sentimental video game references and saccharine delight.
Jamie Neish - HeyUGuys
Mostly it's a charming, funny, beautifully animated little kick ...
Siobhan Synnot - Scotsman
A Who Framed Roger Rabbit for the joystick generation that, despite a mid-act dip into generic Disney territory, high-scores on laughs, invention and 8-bit affection.
Simon Crook - Empire Magazine
Wreck-It Ralph is a dazzling show of sound and colour, tipping its hat to the 8-bit era and modern-day touchstones.
Simon Reynolds - Digital Spy
A Disney flick that feels like on-form Pixar, blending knowing humour and sophistication with a large helping of heart. You'll want another go.
Stephen Kelly - Total Film
This cleverly-targeted family romp marks a step up both commercially and artistically for the non-Pixar side of Disney's animation offering.
Hannah McGill - The List
It's a cool game, to be sure, but watching someone else play it gets old after a while.
...a passable yet disappointing effort from the so-called Mouse House...
David Nusair - Reel Film Reviews
Despite being a perfectly entertaining Disney picture, Wreck-it Ralph leaves that nagging taste in the mouth that it could have been so much more.
Gabe Leibowitz - Film and Felt
This A-grade animated Disney charmer hits the nail on the head...director Rich Moore has enormous faith in the ability of young audiences to absorb multiple story strands at once, a belief aided no end by the exquisite quality of the animation.
Jim Schembri - 3AW
Anyone who grew up within a controller cable length of a gaming console will need to see this film.
Alice Tynan - The Vine
Disney hits all its demographic targets from those whose first gaming experience is Angry Birds to those who know their Asteroids from their Defender.
Matt Neal - The Standard
It's a superbly rendered, supremely creative effort that lovingly pays tribute to 1980s arcade games.
Stephen Silver - EntertainmentTell
An even more enriching experience than I had anticipated.
Liam Maguren - Flicks.co.nz
With its inventive premise, clever script and wacky characters, this family friendly film tells the story of the video game's bad guy, whose colourful adventures and life affirming journey allow him to realise his true worth
Louise Keller - Urban Cinefile
Wreck-It-Ralph is one of the year's best animated features (if not the best) and it's the attention to detail in the tightly-written script that gives it such an edge.
Matthew Toomey - ABC Radio Brisbane
As a new father you can fully trust me when I say things like 'Wreck-It Ralph' is fun for the whole family, even though my family won't find that out for another five years.
Jeff Bayer - The Scorecard Review
[It earns] an emotional final payoff, when it could have easily coasted on the nostalgia of parents, and the undiscerning tastes of infants. That it also injects a number of thrilling action sequences and witty asides is just icing on the delectable cake.
Simon Miraudo - Quickflix
This movie - much like Toy Story before it - imagines what might happen if toys' designated functions face challenges, if characters have ideas that take them beyond expectations.
Cynthia Fuchs - Time to Play Magazine
This witty and brilliantly executed Disney production is looser and less insistent on your emotional acquiescence than its Pixar counterparts...
John Beifuss - Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
Wreck-It Ralph is a major advancement for Walt Disney Animation Studios in all regards.
Thomas Caldwell - Cinema Autopsy
While not quite the 80s gaming throwback it implies, this is a sweet, clever animated adventure.
Bruce Bennett - Spectrum (St. George, Utah)
Easily the best animated film in a year full of crushing disappointments, Wreck-It Ralph is a heart-warming ode to retro gaming that will enrapture gamers and pretty much everyone else along the way.
Shaun Munro - What Culture
There's a bonus level of enjoyment for video-game aficionados who might never look at classic arcade games quite the same way again.
Todd Jorgenson - Cinemalogue.com
Don't worry. You won't be the only grownup seeing 'Wreck-It Ralph.' And if you want to take your family, you will be laughing just as hard as the younger viewers.
Linda Cook - KWQC-TV (Iowa)
Funny, heartwarming, interesting characters, but just a little bit overlong.
Robert Roten - Laramie Movie Scope
Wreck-it Ralph, under the keen executive producer eye of Pixar titan John Lasseter, is what would happen if Toy Story & Shrek had a video game lovechild.
Blake Howard - 2UE That Movie Show
The world created in the movie is so utterly fascinating that I desperately want to see what other kind of amazing, creative tales can be told within it.
Katey Rich - CinemaBlend.com
Not a wreck but the movie does have some problems.
Jackie K. Cooper - jackiekcooper.com
Ralph and his new friends offer much action and adventure, but the movie scores most of all with its poignant scenes and the relationships among its characters.
John Wirt - Advocate (Baton Rouge, LA)
Wreck-It Ralph is colorful and harmless. It's also harmless and colorful. That just about covers it.
Ken Hanke - Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
The creators, more than most, understand that a good setting and fun sight gags are secondary to a story with heart.
Rebecca Cusey - Patheos
That Disney's in-house effort mostly plays like an actual Pixar film is a fine compliment.
Scott Wold - Paste Magazine
Has no apparent goal other than being the biggest, most colorful film it can be, with a warm and fuzzy message that isn't aiming to be sophisticated, and it does what it sets out to do.
Tim Brayton - Antagony & Ecstasy
Best videogame movie ever! ... [A]mong the immense pleasures of this thoroughly enjoyable film are the many ingenious touches that bind it into a cohesive world...
MaryAnn Johanson - Flick Filosopher
A manic children's film about the souls of video game avatars.
Matt Singer - ScreenCrush
may be set in the world of video games, but its conceit is set firmly in . . . the Hero's Journey. The mythic realms are made of bits and bytes, but are just as magical, and the tasks nothing short of Herculean. Not that any of this is stuffy or pedantic.
Andrea Chase - Killer Movie Reviews
Inventively wired, it's a video-game adventure that explores visually dazzling, distinctively retro worlds.
Susan Granger - SSG Syndicate
Yeah, I said it. Wreck-It Ralph compares with the Toy Story movies. It's the equal to those films in terms of joy, character, sweetness and, most of all, heart.
A brilliant concept in search of a movie. Starts off really strong with sly humor and wit that devolves into cheap kiddie jokes.
Michelle Alexandria - Eclipse Magazine
Wreck-It Ralph is consistently inventive, displaying a sturdy story structure that makes it more than just a simplistic romp for the Gen-X crowd.
Matt Brunson - Creative Loafing
The most fun I've had in a theater for quite a long time.
Scott Nash - Three Movie Buffs
Wreck-It Ralph isn't great but it's not a total train wreck either.
Gary Wolcott - Tri-City Herald
The breakout star here is Silverman, who channels her caustic Kewpie doll stand-up personality into the impish Vanellope to give her some bite and a lot of heart.
Sean Means - Salt Lake Tribune
Wreck-It Ralph is like the happy hallucination a 14 year old kid in 1986 might have had after ingesting a dozen or so Pixie Sticks and a liter of Jolt Cola
Bill Gibron - PopMatters
Wreck-It Ralph knows that it can only play at its inside jokes for so long before the shtick gets old.
Mark Dujsik - Mark Reviews Movies
One of the best animated movies of a year full of them. Sweet, silly, nostalgic, and very geeky fun.
Scott Weinberg - GeekNation
James Verniere - Boston Herald
Those who've played and programmed the games over the decades will find some fun with in-jokes involving the likes of Pac-man and Q*bert but anyone else over the age of ten will likely be bored.
Laura Clifford - Reeling Reviews
Unlike the Pixar films toward which it aspires-which marry sophisticated conceits to straightforward storylines-Wreck-It Ralph consistently gets lost in its own intricate plot mechanics.
Christopher Orr - The Atlantic
Game-themed movie mixes potty humor with strong messages.
Common Sense Media Editors - Common Sense Media
The movie's retro sensibilities will appeal to adults, while the colorful games and characters, as well as the simplicity of the story, will hold the attention of young viewers.
Bob Bloom - Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)
Wreck-It Ralph may ostensibly be for kids, but the viewers who will probably enjoy it most are those who were children thirty years ago.
Ethan Alter - Television Without Pity
Video game enthusiasts are sure to embrace the feature's familiarity with arcade history, while the less enlightened will have to do with a splendidly animated picture populated with likable characters and explosive action set-pieces.
Brian Orndorf - Blu-ray.com
You might wish you could insert another quarter when it finally reaches 'game over.' (Full Content Review for Parents also available)
Jim Judy - Screen It!
The movie knows and loves gaming culture, but never uses that as an excuse to let the narrative slip.
Rob Vaux - Mania.com
A sort of Toy Story as seen through an 8-bit lens.
Mike Scott - Times-Picayune
The story pushes a heartfelt message, but the humorous antics are pitched at a strictly juvenile level that will have parents yawning while their children roar in approval.
Steve Biodrowski - Cinefantastique
The giddiest cartoon comedy in years.
Jeffrey Westhoff - Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)
Sarah Silverman puts in one of the greatest voice acting performances you will ever see or hear in your life.
Willie Waffle - WaffleMovies.com
For anyone with a grade-schooler and a free Saturday, it's a pretty safe and painless bet. And a great excuse to go up to the attic later and see if you can dig out your old Atari 2600.
Stephen Whitty - Newark Star-Ledger
"Wreck-It Ralph" is one of the best animated movies of 2012...
Cole Smithey - ColeSmithey.com
This is, without a doubt, the best animated film so far this year. It's a video game geek's paradise, featuring countless references to games from all eras.
Austin Kennedy - Film Geek Central
Wreck-It Ralph makes you think that an animated comedy this humorous, original, and entertaining has to be unhealthy.
Chris Sawin - Examiner.com
Wreck-It-Ralph enjoys a smart ratio of accessible character drama and goofy gaming gags - resulting in an exceptionally entertaining, and heartfelt, animated adventure.
Ben Kendrick - ScreenRant
This certainly isn't the best Disney film to come along, but it's a decent outing for families.
Jeanne Kaplan - Kaplan vs. Kaplan
Through it all, the animators fill Wreck-It Ralph with playful sight gags and smart video-game references that will delight savvy viewers, but aren't so inclusive that they can't be enjoyed by non-gamers.
Jason Buchanan - TV Guide's Movie Guide
The biggest disappointment of all is that John Lasseter is executive producer. Unfortunately, "Ralph" can't hold a candle to his prior creations.
David Kaplan - Kaplan vs. Kaplan
The film gets a lot of credit for being clever and original while sticking to tried-and-true family movie themes like believing in yourself and accepting everyone's differences.
Mathew DeKinder - Suburban Journals of St. Louis
Abandons its initial, clever and fiendishly marketable conceit for a highly conventional tale about fatherhood ... Worth a handful of quarters, but not much more than that.
William Bibbiani - CraveOnline
A sweet, colorful 3-D animated feature that finds Disney passing its stuck-in-a-rut partners at Pixar.
Matt Pais - RedEye
If ever a movie deserved the tag line 'Get ready to root for the bad guy,' it's this.
David Medsker - Bullz-Eye.com
"Wreck-It Ralph" doesn't just wreck 'em. It darn near kills 'em.
Graham Killeen - Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Disney Animation takes a page out of Pixar's well-worn playbook for this, a screwball farce with a novel setting and more edge than your average Disney 'toon.
A witty, imaginative romp that should please some viewers with its nostalgic references to the pastimes they affectionately remember and everybody else with its explosion of sheer exuberance and warmth.
Frank Swietek - One Guy's Opinion
"Wreck-It Ralph" blends poignancy and a piston-powered plot that revels in both visual inventiveness and a vaudevillian sense of timing.
Frank Lovece - Newsday
Bursting with candy-bright colors and zoomy action, Pixar's "Wreck-It Ralph" should prove as entertaining as a sugar rush for its young target audience.
Moira MacDonald - Seattle Times
Delightfully off the rails, offering a grown-up-friendly tone and merging of visual styles that are reminiscent of the studio's 1988 animated homage to film noir, "Who Framed Roger Rabbit."
Peter Hartlaub - San Francisco Chronicle
Built for fun...in its dazzlingly elaborate production design and kinetic 3D action...perfect casting...Who Framed Roger Rabbit-esque video-game-character cameos, and a cramming of clever comic touches...
Peter Canavese - Groucho Reviews
More than another standard cutesy reference-fest with some exciting chases and an eventual upbeat message.
Tasha Robinson - AV Club
Probably won't endure like the best of Disney's animated canon, but it's a slight, well-meaning entertainment all the same.
Sweet enough but in the end a bit of a corny-syrupy wipeout, this is middling family-night fare, but it never even comes close to the emotional or technical wizardry of Pixar's finest moments.
Marc Savlov - Austin Chronicle
"Wreck-It Ralph" is a lot like video games and candy: light entertainment but fun while it lasts.
Jody Mitori - St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Rings a few welcome changes on the Disney-princess mythos, but it still feels like a game you've played before.
Sam Adams - Philadelphia City Paper
The witty and vibrant worlds are gorgeously imagined (and of course now available in game form themselves), with a satisfying balance of heart and humor.
Nell Minow - Beliefnet
I do not care one bit about video games. Even if I did, I suspect I wouldn't be a fan of the loud and frenzied "Wreck-It Ralph."
Chris Hewitt (St. Paul) - St. Paul Pioneer Press
Wreck-It Ralph is an absolutely wonderful film, nothing short of a glorious, full-blown rebirth for Disney Animation Studios.
Jonathan Lack - We Got This Covered
A gorgeously rendered story that will play just as well to children as to their parents, albeit for different reasons. Playstation and Xbox junkies will be equally pleased.
Rene Rodriguez - Miami Herald
Wreck-It Ralph is pop nirvana, a headlong rush through classic arcade games and Nintendo standards that's not too busy playing spot-the-reference to keep from paying off in laughs and heart.
Scott Tobias - NPR
What makes this work is not only the in-jokes for video game fans, but the rich characterization.
Daniel M. Kimmel - Sci-Fi Movie Page
Disney can dress it up, take it out to the arcade and plug it full of quarters ... but at the end of the cord, the film's a simple, 8-bit I-gotta-be-me story, with a dull plot and tepid characters. Game over.
Kimberly Gadette - Doddle
Powered by a standout concept delivered upon in winning fashion, this fun film serves as the most natural and effortlessly readymade animated feature for future franchise exploration since Shrek.
Brent Simon - Screen International
A bouncy, boingy ball of candy-colored fun, Wreck-It Ralph is intended as pure entertainment for wee boys and girls. And I bet most adults will find it a hoot to boot.
Christopher Lloyd - Sarasota Herald-Tribune
The first half of the film is a constant delight as clever, funny ideas are presented, one after another.
Leonard Maltin - Leonard Maltin's Picks
Call it Tron for little kids. Or Toy Story for their arcade generation parents.
Jim Slotek - Jam! Movies
The imagery is amazing - and always witty. This is a Disney cartoon - but it's got the imagination and brains of a Pixar feature.
Marshall Fine - Hollywood & Fine
A few power-ups shy of a classic, but its winking look at the world of video games is fun, even if it doesn't reach its full potential.
Jeffrey Lyles - Lyles' Movie Files
"Wreck-It Ralph" builds on a wonderful premise that explores whether folks are condemned to be victims of their own circumstances.
Jon Niccum - Kansas City Star
Consider it a force in the Best Animated Film Oscar race
Pete Hammond - Boxoffice Magazine
Like most any game, Wreck-it Ralph is most fun when it's messing around without a particular goal.
Phil Villarreal - OK! Magazine
The story often feels jumbled and unfocused. But the details of the video-game world are intricate and wonderfully realized.
Josh Bell - Las Vegas Weekly
If only the Konami Code could fix this script.
Brett Michel - Boston Phoenix
It's a fine piece of moviemaking that has a little something for kids who don't remember when games were played in arcades and adults who will delight in the tweaking of a bygone era.
Charlie McCollum - San Jose Mercury News
It's a great dynamic and it works but my favorite character isn the whole thing was Alan Tudyck as King Candy, such a hilarious throwback to the Mad Hatter from Alice in Wonderland.
Kristian Harloff - Schmoes Know
It was such a great time at the cinema; I was expecting to like it and I ended up falling in love.
Mark Ellis - Schmoes Know
The metaphor is clever, injecting real-life risk and reward into these beautifully artificial vistas, scored to composer Henry Jackman's Nintendo-worthy beeps and bloops.
Joshua Rothkopf - Time Out
A delightful contrast to Moore's frenetic adventure is offered by an accompanying short subject Paper Man... the reason for the "plus" in my grade, and a likely Oscar nominee in the animated short film category.
Steve Persall - Tampa Bay Times
Life lessons about being true to yourself are learned along the way, delivered with all the subtlety of Felix's hammer, but Wreck-It Ralph actually makes us care about these videogame characters and their dreams.
'Wreck-It Ralph' is a clutter of noise, eye-wearying animation, frenetic action and two-dimensional characters.
Kirk Honeycutt - honeycuttshollywood.com
A cleverly conceived, coin operated machine.
Mark Sells - The Reel Deal
The filmmakers deserve credit for creating different worlds, each with distinctive look, but like most road films, the tale is overly episodic, lacking the unified vision that has marked the genre's best works.
Emanuel Levy - EmanuelLevy.Com
Nothing but broad, pandering indexes tailored to appeal to the arcade wistfulness it never even bothers to convincingly evoke.
John Semley - Slant Magazine
While only the first forty minutes are super, on the whole WRECK-IT RALPH is a whole lot of fun.
Chris Bumbray - JoBlo's Movie Emporium
