Ralph Breaks The Internet: Movie Review

By: Matt Suzara

After the events of the first film, Ralph (John C. Reilly) and his best friend, Vanellope (Sarah Silverman) repeatedly did the same exact thing over and over again. Things changed when Ralph accidentally breaks Vanellope's game thinking he could give it a twist. Soon, the two embarks on a quest to the Internet in an attempt to save Sugar Rush. However, this adventure might put their friendship into a difficult test that could actually change their lives forever.

Wreck-it Ralph is probably the best animated film released in 2012, and it is not a surprise that it got a sequel six years after. This latest installment promises a wider premise with the film expanding in the world of the internet. There are a lot of upgrades to see in this film with a deeper story line plus a bunch of characters that will give you a big smile on your face. It's a bit ambitious at some point, but it managed to rally from behind and remained decent as a whole.

It also didn't lose its charm and continues to highlight the true value of friendship. There a lot of funny references and turned it to some pretty cool stuffs that you can actually see while browsing on the Internet. I love the complete set of Disney's princesses and lend them all to appear here. They made sure to pay attention to every small detail and capitalized well with its colorful visuals. You also need to sit back until the credits are done for you to see two after credits that will definitely surprise everyone.

The voice cast once again did a terrific job in lending their talents to give life to these adorable characters. John C. Reilley and Sarah Silverman continue to anchor this film with full commitment from start to finish. You also got two outstanding key additions in Gal Gadot and Taraji P. Henson plus the returning Jane Lynch and  Jack McBrayer to round up the talented voice casts. 

Overall, Ralph Breaks The Internet may not surpass the greatness achieved by the first part but has its own ground to stand on its own. It has a deeper plot to explore and has a wider selection of characters to impress the viewers. This is surely a must watch family-friendly film that can be enjoyed by anyone at any age.
