“Ralph Breaks the Internet” is the sequel we have been waiting for since 2012 when “Wreck-It Ralph” first came out, and this sequel did not disappoint. This film was directed by Rich Moore and Phil Johnston. Ralph (John C. Reilly) and Vanellope (Sarah Silverman) are enjoying the good life of drinking root beer and playing around in other games with each other, and Ralph is perfectly happy, but Vanellope seeks more adventure and change.
The turning point in this film is when one of the players of Vanellope’s game breaks the steering wheel on the game and the arcade owner refuses to buy a new steering wheel to replace the old one. This causes Ralph and Vanellope to travel to the internet to try and find a new steering wheel on ebay. They are able to make a bid on it, but are unable to buy it due to them not having any money from the real world. Ralph then has to make videos that give him hearts that he can then turn into money. They end up being able to purchase the steering wheel, but because of another racing game that they found on the internet, Vanellope seems pretty set on staying on the internet.
This film is funny, different and interesting, and it is a great film to watch with the family. The film had original humor that dealt with the internet that we all can relate to. Viewing the internet from the inside was funny, and it actually put some things into perspective, like how much we truly rely on the internet. The animation was bright, colorful and well done, and it made the film feel magical. The voice acting was great, and the voices really suited the characters. The film went well with the prequel, even though they are both pretty independent of each other. This film was funny and emotional and definitely worth the watch.
