RALPH’S BACK IN BUSINESS
A buddy movie that tackles the delicate issue of tooclingy relationships, aka codependency? That’s just one of the surprises Disney’s WreckIt-Ralph sequel has up its ethernet cable.
This bright and bouncy upgrade of the retro 2012 arcade game hit catapults the rehabilitated bad guy and his chipper best mate into the World Wide Web.
Their quest: to find a replacement part for Vanellope von Schweetz’s candy and chocolate-themed car racing game, Sugar Rush, before it’s packed off to the junkyard and she’s left homeless.
Once the unlikely pair enter this strange, eye-popping, multidimensional cyberverse, however, they are confronted by its many challenges.
Ralph (John C. Reilly) is constantly distracted by the billboard-carrying pop-ups that come at him from all directions. And after an eBay misunderstanding results in a large debt, he actively humiliates himself on BuzzzTube in order to become a viral video superstar.
Meanwhile, Vanellope (Sarah Silverman) has fallen prey to the charms of a gritty and thoroughly addictive video game called Slaughter Race.
Reilly does a great job as the loveable lump. And it’s great to see the irrepressible Vanellope embark upon her own hero’s journey: she’s a sweet, sassy role model for young girls and boys. Ralph Breaks The Internet is now showing in cinemas
