Fifth about The Seventh

Ralph Breaks the Internet

Ralph Breaks the Internet: Phil Johnston and Rich Moore’s animated sequel is, like the original, an earnest film, with a cute, insightful look at the nature of friendship. The story offers a natural expansion to the original world, and the execution of how this fantasy-like world-wide web works and looks is rather priceless. Also, the expanded universe introduces many new minor characters, and a certain gathering is a romp. The downside is that all this meandering, while entertaining per se, slows down the story advancement. Voice acting is good, in the sense it’s not too loud: John C. Reilly is a warm presence, and he keeps his performance relatively quiet; Sarah Silverman’s voice work has the potential to be very grating, but she somehow sidesteps it; newcomers to the franchise Gal Gadot and Taraji P. Henson don’t overstay their welcome, both giving relatively grounded performances. Animation is smooth, character design is very well-done, and the environment is colorful and attractive.
