Wreck-It Ralph Movie Review (MasonicGamer.com)

MasonicGamer.com - So, the history of Video game movies has not been great. We all recall the horrors of films like Street Fighter and Doom. Many people said that it should not be attempted, as games and movies are just too different, and to that I would heartily agree. But Wreck-it Ralph is not a game turned into a film, but rather a film about gaming. It introduces a new world and the idea that game characters are actually just doing a job and are separate from the world they live in, fully aware that they are characters in an arcade. It was this premise that drew me to go see Wreck-it Ralph, and I was surprised at how well it was pulled off. (Culture) 9/10

Took my kids to see it and it was Awesome! My Only complaint, is that there wasn't more 'game jumping'. It was kind of made to be a big plot point in the trailers. It would've been cool to see him in a few more kinds of games. Especially a fighting game like Street Fighter, since those characters were in the movie.

All the references were great and well executed. Even if some were just things that happened kind of in the background. If you haven't seen it, you're missing out..

Definitely agree. I was sad it only went to a few games but it was an amazing movie.
