Is Wreck-It-Ralph the best gaming movie ever?


We here at Lazygamer have been looking forward to Disney’s Wreck-It Ralph for ages – even if it is mostly to see cameos from video game heroes and baddies like Sonic, Bowser, M.Bison, Zangief and a guy who isn’t, but looks a heck of a lot like Mortal Kombat’s Kano. Unfortunately, we’ve yet to see it – but unfortunately because of commitments, laziness or our misplaced Discovery Vitality cards, we’ve just not seen it yet. Our good friends over at have though! What do they think?

It seems they rather like it.

“Colourful, funny and smart, Wreck-It Ralph stands head-and-shoulders above recent animated films targeted at the entire family,” says Noelle. “Although gamers in the 20-40 age bracket will probably receive the most pleasure playing spot the classic video game reference, Wreck-It Ralph isn’t just superficial pop culture sight gags. The film’s surprising amount of heart and likeability sneaks up on you. Even the littlies in the audience, who will probably have little to no experiences of gaming arcades, should remain engaged thanks to the unblunted storyline and bright, exciting setting.”

The best thing about it though is that the filmmakers really understand and love videogames – and imparted that in to the film. If you’re a gamer you probably want to go and watch this while it’s still in theatres.

I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
