GAME NOT OVER IN ‘RALPH BREAKS THE IN­TER­NET’

Apple Magazine - - Summary -

In a bat­tle be­tween the in­ter­net and John C. Reilly, who among us wouldn’t root for the lat­ter? Leave us IMDb.com and a few pod­casts, John, but by all means, go smashy-smashy with the rest.

Hav­ing lib­er­ated ar­cade game char­ac­ters from their rigidly or­dained roles in 2012’s “Wreck-it Ralph,” its se­quel, “Ralph Breaks the In­ter­net,” sends our charm­ingly lop­sided duo — the hulk­ing, big-fisted Ralph (Reilly) and the glitchy pip­squeak candy-col­ored racer Vanel­lope von Sch­weetz (Sarah Sil­ver­man) — into that ex­pan­sive nether­world where click­bait lurks and pop-ups pro­lif­er­ate.

For a pair of pix­e­lated be­ings whose ex­is­tence has hereto­fore been lim­ited to a hand­ful of video games, they’re de­cid­edly not in Kansas any­more.
