Ralph Breaks the Internet: Five Reasons You’ll Love It

Following the positive reaction that Wreck-It Ralph received from critics and moviegoers alike, Ralph is back, and this time, he’s got Wi-Fi.

Ralph (John C. Reilly) and Vanellope (Sarah Silverman) pick up seamlessly from where we left them, with the pair searching for something more in their archaic arcade existence. This time around Silverman’s Vanellope takes the lead, searching for purpose amongst an exciting and often confusing new world.

What follows is a transformative and often hilarious journey for them both as individuals and as a pair; the exceedingly bright and bold world of the internet is coupled with quiet internal character development that proves to make for a truly enjoyable experience.

We managed to catch a screening of Ralph Breaks the Internet and rounded up five reasons why we think you’ll love it...

 

Gal Gadot is a revelation...

When the trailer revealed a host of Disney princesses it was understandably an exciting prospect for fans, but even more exciting is that Gal Gadot’s Shank shines brighter than the rest.  Gadot revels in Shanks’ fierce bravery and acts of awesomeness (as do the audience).

 

The world building is vast and impressive...

The stand-out way in which this movie improves upon the last is the world building. Working with a much larger playground clearly opened up a lot of opportunities for the filmmakers, which they grab with both hands. Seeing the quirks and characters in the internet will almost leave you hoping that Ralph doesn’t break it.

 

The new cast members shine...

Along with Gadot, new additions to the cast include Taraji P. Henson & Alfred Molina who both add dynamic new dimension’s to the ever expanding world. Alan Tudyk returns in a different role from the original, but with the same hilarious performance we’ve come to expect.

 

It’s a non-stop joyride...

It doesn’t take long for Ralph & Vanellope to start causing mayhem in familiar and new environments; the film juggles the laughs and the action expertly up until the credits roll.

 

The moral of the story is a worthy one...

Although the title implies things will be ‘broken’, the film thrives when challenging its characters to fix themselves. The themes and values in question are undoubtedly ones which viewers young and old alike will recognise as relevant and valuable.

 

 

Ralph Breaks the Internet is in cinemas now - you can also pre-order the film on DVD and Blu-ray here in our online store...
