Sexy, Sex and Nude Scenes
A wrestler is seen only wearing tight undergarments.
Ralph finds a pair of men's undergarments in a lost-and-found box and is grossed out. He later knocks out a solider to steal his uniform and dresses the solider in only the undergarments so he won't be completely naked while locked in a closet.
Violent and Bloody Scenes
The movie is a cartoon adventure based on video games and contains numerous slapstick scenes of characters running into things and getting hit with comical objects and video game style fighting.
A sequence involves Ralph entering a dark, modern "first-person shooter" game called Hero's Duty. This game contains scenes of automatic gun firing, with bullets are replaced by green bursts, and explosions. These automatic weapons are used to shoot at mindless bug creatures which explode in green goo.
A cyborg fighter playfully rips out a zombie's heart and then returns it to him without hurt feelings.
In a flashback intended as comical, a female Sergent explains how a giant bug creature burst into her wedding ceremony and devoured the groom, in one non-explicit "gulp."
In a slapstick scene, Sergent Calhoun repeatedly punches Fix-It Felix in the face which he heals immediately using his superpower. We see his face undergo various deformities, including black eyes, missing teeth and swollen lips and face.
Vanellope crashes a racing cart and spits out a tooth.
Ralph burns his feet in lava like boiling hot diet cola but does not show lasting pain or wounds.
In a nightmare sequence, a character is quickly shown fading into nothingness when a video game is unplugged.
A character, having morphed into a bug monster, is hypnotized by a giant bug zapper and allows himself to be burnt to ash. His death is shown from a tasteful distance. By the "rules" of the movie he dies for good.
Characters throughout have the threat of "dying for real" if they are killed outside their own game.
Scary and Disturbing Scenes
Younger viewers may be disturbed and upset by a scene where Ralph destroys the car that he and Vanellope built together.
In the final scene Ralph battles a giant bug monster with the main villain's face on top, which taunts him. This scene is played for dramatic effect and does not have the same comedy as earlier fight scenes. The scene peaks when Ralph attempts to sacrifice himself by jumping into a volcano so it will activate and destroy the main bad guy. Ralph is saved at the last second by Venelope but the villain is not.
Though it is a dream sequence, the game being unplugged and the likeable character of Vanellope disappearing into nothing could be upsetting to some viewers.
When the goofy villain King Candy is revealed as the more serious villain Turbo the unnatural, glitchy transformation may be scary. His later transformation into a bug monster may also be upsetting.
Wreck-It Ralph imagines a world where arcade game characters have their own lives. It's like a video game version of Toy Story and Who Framed Roger Rabbit, but this one is much more appealing to the viewers. As expected, it has an endless amount of enjoyment, a big scale of adventure, and really fun characters. The filmmakers poured their love of these games to the film thus made this a wonderful nostalgic delight.
The story doesn't sound quite fresh at some point, especially for an animated film, but the main attraction here is the theme. It sets in a magnificent arcade world. It's fun when it captures the prominent video game mannerism like the freezy movements in retro games, an out of control game character walking against the wall in 3D games, and the glitching. It's easy to know what the central games are inspired from. Many would root for the cameos of iconic game characters and each of their appearance are splendid. The movie is filled with action set pieces that are undeniably exciting. By its grand scale and references, the experience is gloriously extraordinary.
Another charms of the film is the characters. We don't usually see films with well developed characters in blockbusters these days but this one has plenty of it. They all have their own pathos, but in a comical way. And the voice performances were great. John C. Reily gives Ralph an acceptably nice personality. Sarah Silverman makes Vanellope adorable enough. Jack McBrayer is quite charming as the always positive Fix-It Felix Jr. and Alan Tudyk is delightful as the goofy King Candy.
The animation is wonderful. Like what I said, they really capture the elements of every video game. The game "Sugar Rush" has the most colorful(and product placed) visuals of the film. The rest is thoroughly inspired. 3D is usually unnecessary but here is just fine. It's kind of worth it by its large adventures. There is no scene after the credits but it's better to stay during it to listen to the theme songs of "Sugar Rush" and "Fix-It Felix Jr.".
There isn't much groundbreaking about Wreck-It Ralph but what makes this special is its tribute to the classic video games. It also serves an over the top fun and sweetness(no Sugar Rush pun intended). It's so fun, it's easy to ignore its little flaws. There are some things that could have been better, but the film is already good enough. To those who love playing video-games will enjoy this a lot more. It's just full of life and nostalgia. Wreck-It Ralph is a great virtual ride!
