RALPH BREAKS THE INTERNET (2018)
Sequel finds Wreck-It Ralph (John C. Reilly) and Vanellope (Sarah Silverman) traveling into the internet to find E-Bay, to get a new steering wheel for her Sugar Rush game. Along the way Vanellope discovers a dangerous game called Slaughter Race, that she would rather stay in and in his grief, Ralph unleashes a virus which replicates hundreds of him at his most needy and threatens to bring the internet crashing down.
Sequel is cute and fun, though not quite up to the original Wreck-It Ralph. Rich Moore returns to direct, this time along with Phil Johnston, who co-wrote the screenplay along with Pamela Ribbon. The characters are still endearing and it is fun to see these retro game characters discover the new and more intense games of today and interact. There is a fun role from Wonder Woman’s Gal Gadot as the sexy “Shank” who is Slaughter Race’s premiere driver, until Vanellope arrives. Ralph’s moping and whining does get a little tedious, but otherwise it’s a cute and entertaining follow-up to the charming original.
