Friendships, as great and as fulfilling as they can be, can change as we change. It’s up to us to learn how to accept these changes in order to continue meaningful relationships. That is the message @wreckitralph
(Ralph Breaks the Internet) is trying to convey. As the sequel to Wreck it Ralph, this is a lofty goal as platonic connections are not often the backbone of a movie and can be hard to tell in an interesting manner. I’m pleased to say this movie does a great job by providing well-thought out characters and plot progressions that follow one another. I know who these characters are and their motivations make sense, which likely means kids will take something significant from this film. The animation is obviously gorgeous and the comedy is smartly written, especially the Disney Princess scene. The price of admission is worth it for that alone. This isn’t a slam dunk movie that will leave you talking for years to come, but it does its job of telling an essential story not oft seen on screen.
Who is it for?
Kids definitely but the nostalgia of certain parts tells me they want that 25-45 demographic to show up as well.
Is it good?
It is the definition of a good movie: nothing spectacular but solid all around. It could stand to lose 15-30 minutes at the end during the climax because it really doesn’t add anything. That being said, everything else runs smoothly. Recognition should be made for John C. Reilly and Sarah Silverman who are selling every line read. Go out for this one if you’re someone who doesn’t discriminate animated features. One thumb up.
