Verdict: Brilliant animated adventure film

Story: When you get a film that has so many references to the game world much to the same level the toy references are in Toy Story are you know you have something special. This story shows that even when you are doing a job you need to be appreciated and if you are not you have to make a change. It also shows that you should appreciate the people that do the little things to make you so popular. It deals with the ideas of being treated equal and that should be treating everyone equal no matter what the differences are between each other. (10/10)


Character Review: Ralph – A great character that shows just because your job is to be bad doesn’t make you a bad guy. He is clumsy but also has a heart of gold who just needs to be welcome in by people. (10/10)


Character Review: Vanellope – A hyper excitable character who is fed up of being left in isolation and just wants to be part of the game. An important character that shows no matter if you different you are doesn’t mean you should be cast a side by everybody. (9/10)


Character Review: Felix – He has to stop Ralph in all his game outings but doesn’t notice or want to fix how people look at Ralph outside the game. He is all about innocents getting put in the wrong hands whereas along as he good he ignores the rest of the people around him but has to learn he isn’t the centre of attention by the end. (9/10)


Character Review: Calhoun – Strict Sergeant from heroes Duty who has to stop all hell letting loose in the game world and fix what Ralph has caused. (9/10)


Character Review: King Candy – He is the evil ruler of the Sugar Land game but he has a bigger secret behind his motives. (9/10)

  1. Good review Darren. While it may not be the most sophisticated animated flick like it was promised as being, it’s still a funny, happy and sweet flick altogether.
