What's it About?
Having played the bad guy in his arcade game for decades forever in the shadow of Fix -it-Felix, Ralph yearns for the acceptance of his game mates and to prove that he can be the hero if only he were given the opportunity. Fully believing that winning a medal in one of the most dangerous games in the arcade will prove him a hero, Ralph sets off on his quest. Can he return before his game is unplugged forever?
Gameplay and story sequences are a technicolour triumph, saturated in vivid colour and an absolute joy to behold. For the first time in a very long time, I'm going to recommend you see this in 3D. Although each of the Hollywood A-Listers chosen to voice the cast are instantly recognisable in their own right, they embody their on screen players with ease and I can't imagine a better fit for any one of them.
When our loveable protagonist, Ralph takes matters into his own oversized hands and 'goes Turbo', things go from bad to worse very quickly and he ends up in the saccharin sweet game, Sugar Rush. Meeting up with seriously adorable, wise cracking Vanellope von Schweetz (an outsider in her own game) they reluctantly team up to achieve their respective goals and prove that friendship and determination can triumph regardless of adversity.
