    Unlike the Pixar films toward which it aspires-which marry sophisticated conceits to straightforward storylines-Wreck-It Ralph <a href=”http://www.theatlantic.com/entertainment/archive/2012/11/-wreck-it-ralph-aims-for-pixar-and-misses/264439/”>consistently gets lost in its own intricate plot mechanics</a>.

  • James Rocchi (MSN Movies)

    ‘Wreck-it Ralph’ is a serious contender for the title of <a href=”http://movies.msn.com/movies/movie-critic-reviews/wreck-it-ralph/”>best animated film of the year</a>.

  • Betsy Sharkey (Los Angeles Times)

    The movie’s subversive sensibility and <a href=”http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/movies/moviesnow/la-et-mn-wreck-it-ralph-review-20121102,0,7169592.story”>old-school/new-school feel are a total kick</a>.

  • Dave McGinn (Globe and Mail)

    It’s impossible not to feel a strong sense of nostalgic amusement, if not sheer delight, <a href=”http://www.theglobeandmail.com/arts/film/film-reviews/wreck-it-ralph-a-nostalgic-trip-to-the-video-arcade/article4821978/”>at the comings and goings of all these characters</a>.

  • Kyle Smith (New York Post)

    Amid all the boring crashing and chasing and slapstick, <a href=”http://www.theglobeandmail.com/arts/film/film-reviews/wreck-it-ralph-a-nostalgic-trip-to-the-video-arcade/article4821978/”>there are some brilliant flashes of wit</a> (particularly a reference to the guards in the Wizard of Oz).

  • Joe Morgenstern (Wall Street Journal)

    It’s a lovely pretext for dazzling visuals, <a href=”http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052970204712904578091453206216968.html”>yet the production is diminished by the clumsiness of an 8-bit script</a>.

  • Scott Tobias (NPR)

    Wreck-It Ralph is pop nirvana, a headlong rush through classic arcade games and Nintendo standards that’s not too <a href=”http://www.npr.org/2012/11/01/163695280/ralph-an-8-bit-hero-with-plenty-of-heart?ft=1&f=1045″>busy playing spot-the-reference to keep from paying off in laughs and heart</a>.

  • Peter Travers (Rolling Stone)

    Wreck-It Ralph is the latest in a rash of recent movies fired up with imaginative risk. Director Moore brings a video junkie’s passion to the movie game, <a href=”http://www.rollingstone.com/movies/reviews/wreck-it-ralph-20121101″>and it’s hilariously infectious</a>.
