The concept is spectacular - games in an arcade interacting with one another through an electricity outlet that doubles for a train station - it's wildly original and very interesting. The characters are lovable and the story is fun. Although it's not based on one specific game alone, I think it's safe to say that this is the best video-game movie ever made.
A classic arcade game villain gets tired of being a bad guy, and sets out to other games to try and be a hero, inadvertently setting off a chain reaction that threatens to destroy all of the games in the arcade. Exceedingly clever (with lots of winking references to classic video games), WRECK-IT RALPH is a charming animated adventure filled with terrific visuals and fun vocal performances.
