After six years we at last have a sequel to Wreck-It Ralph, and it’s gratifying to say that Ralph Breaks the Internet, which is an entertaining, delightful and heart-warming follow-up. The whole movie revolves around the adventure of the video game characters who enter the massive world of Internet- the strong yet relatively ingenuous Ralph (John C. Reilly) and the feisty, rebellious and glitchy racer girl from the Sugar Rush game, Vanellope(Sarah Silverman). The movie opens up by showing how strong their friendship has grown from six years by living in the arcade. But unfortunately, both the BFFs have every different ambitions. Their definitions of ‘life’ are very divergent.
In the urge of giving his little sister some adventure, Ralph ended up creating a problem which lead to the breaking of the steering wheel of the game. To fix this they elope into the internet world and have to earn money to buy the only wheel available. In this process they enter the world of violent online games via a trip to Slaughter Race, where they meet the tough but empathetic Shank (Gal Gadot) and her racing crew, and even briefly into the dark web. When Ralph finds he has a forte for funny viral videos that can be posted to raise money to buy the Sugar Rush part, he begins posting them on Buzztube and with the help of the wonderful lady Yess (Taraji P. Henson) he is successful in doing so.
This adventure led to Venellope find her “home”, The Slaughter Race but the clingy and possessive friend of hers has quite a problem with this. What he does and did she end up Slaughter Race calling her home forever is the main second part of the story, which you should not miss, so go now and watch the movie! The addition of the Disney Princesses in a modern rather chill avatar is worth the watch, giving us a realistic view.
Cinespeaks Verdict: Ralph Breaks the Internet is a treat to our eyes and our mind. It beautifully covers the importance of friendship and its limitations. And makes one aware of how internet is full of heaven and hell. The lessons learnt from an animated movies comes out shockingly emotional and very important for survival in today’s messy world.
Cinespeaks gives 4 stars.
