Being a little skeptical with the theatrical 3D process, I have to say that the “Wreck-It Ralph” 4-Disc Combo Pack, which includes the Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital Copy was a true surprise.Â Having never seen the film in a theater, I watched the film for the first time in 3D on a 60 inch Sharp 3D Monitor, I was impressed by the quality of the image.Â It was defined, and didn’t have the peripheral blurriness that I have come to expect from watching 3D movies.
The plot of the film brings back memories of playing arcade games from 30 years ago.Â “Wreck-It Ralph” nails the true groundbreaking atmosphere associated with eight bit video games, which hungrily devoured quarters from willing gamers.Â For some movie goers, the appeal of the film is a nostalgic look back at video games from that era,Â butÂ for everyone, it’s just pure fun.
Here is the storyline:
For decades, Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly) has played the bad guy in his popular video game “Fix-It Felix, Jr.” In a bold move, he embarks on an action-packed adventure and sets out to prove everyone that he is a true hero with a big heart. As he explores exciting new worlds, he teams up with some unlikely new friends including feisty misfit Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Sarah Silverman.)
So, what can you expect from purchasing the 4-Disc 3D Combo Pack?
