John C. Reilly provides the voice of Wreck-It Ralph - the villain in a
30-year old video game who tries to destroy buildings, while hero
Fix-It Felix runs around fixing them and racking up all sorts of

However, Ralph is suffering from the constant negativity he faces for
being a bad guy, so he decides to jump into a few other video games
around the arcade to win a medal and show the people who live in Fix-It
Felix he can be a hero, too, but his actions put everyone in danger.
Can Wreck-It Ralph fix it before it is
really does have everything.
First, comedian Sarah Silverman, who provides the voice of a little
girl and fellow video game outcaste who teams up with Ralph, puts in
one of the greatest voice acting performances you will ever see or hear
in your life. Much like people were shocked and thrilled by the work of
Andy Serkis as Gollum in the Lord
of the Rings trilogy, Silverman
deserves amazing kudos for her performance bringing this character to
life. She makes little Vanelleope one of the most charming, cute,
precocious, entertaining and vivacious characters in any movie of 2012.
Second, her pairing with Reilly gives Wreck-It
Ralph a team that evokes amazing
emotion from the crowd. Wreck-It
Ralph is hilarious, but it is
the drama and heartbreak that makes the movie special. Writers Jennifer
Lee and Phil Johnston as well as director Rich Moore put the characters
in the middle of peril, amazing circumstances, and a quest generating
immense support from the audience.
The writing, the acting and the character animation make everyone who
bought a ticket invest in these two lovable outsiders to the point
where you can hear gasps and exasperation in the theater whenever they
are in danger. And that's just the adults in the crowd!
The old cliché is finding a movie that can make you laugh
and make you cry. The search is over when you check out Wreck-It
Wreck-It Ralph is rated PG for some rude humor
and mild action/violence
