[DISCLAIMER THIS ARTICE HAS SPOILERS IN IT SO READ AT YOUR OWN RISK!] 

Ralph Breaks the Internet is the sequel to Wreck it Ralph, which released in 2012. This is about Ralph and Vanellope, his friend, exploring the internet in order to save Vanellope’s game which is called Sugar Rush, a racing game. 

Ralph, in attempt to make Vanellope’s game more exciting, creates a shortcut in her regular race track. This messes up the game. The human girl playing Sugar Rush accidentally breaks the steering wheel. The game gets unplugged due to it being broken and it leaves all the characters a part of it homeless. Ralph and Vanellope must go to eBay and purchase a new wheel to save the day. The two friends end up accidentally bidding $27,001 for the wheel and therefore must make that much money in 24 hours. They have to come up with crazy ideas to make money and decide to steal a car from Slaughter Race to earn $40,000. This is a dangerous racing game that instantaneously draws Vanellope’s attention. Ralph eventually becomes jealous of Shank, a character in the game who is the boss in the “boss” level. Ralph becomes so jealous that Vanellope thinks Shank is so cool and Ralph sends a virus out and literally breaks the internet.  

Although the first Wreck it Ralph was a good movie, this one was just a disappointment. Ralph is showing traits of jealousy and distrust in his relationship with Vanellope. Yes, the movie does show him realizing that it’s not good to let jealousy get the best of you, but it still didn’t address the fact that he didn’t trust Vanellope to make the right decisions and to do things on her own, which she is very well capable of. Ralph’s actions show characteristics of being a poor friend and sends the message that his behavior is acceptable until the very end of the movie when he had already messed everything up. The plot of the story was also very predictable. You could tell what was going to happen way before it actually did. On top of that, I completely understand the fact of this movie being PG, but a lot of the jokes were very corny.  

This movie did have its downs, but it also had some good qualities. For instance, when Vanellope was with the princesses, it was funny how all the girls talked about the “criteria” to be a princess, such as having powers and people assuming that they needed a prince to save them. This movie was also very good at being more related to current time, like talking about Snapchat and YouTube as well as the popular game Fortnite. 

Overall, this movie isn’t awful. It definitely has its good and bad qualities but overall it was decent. I probably wouldn’t recommend it, but it may be great for someone else who is younger than me. I rate this movie 5/10–not anything special and over hyped, but decently good.
