Wreck-It Ralph

Wreck-It Ralph is the second animated surprise of the week, following my earlier review of ParaNorman.  It's a clever idea, worthy of Pixar (even though it is a Disney release, John Lasseter exec produced). The casting is excellent, especially Jane Lynch and Alan Tudyk. It's got a nice moral and a happy ending, as one would expect (is that a spoiler?). The animation is very clever as it manages to pay homage to the 8-bit history it references while still remaining contemporary 3D for contemporary audiences. The story line has a lot of nice touches to it, a few of them were actually surprises to me, which is always nice.

Nice sound work by Gary Rydstrom, Dave Fluhr and Gary Rizzo.

I highly recommend the film for all ages!
