Wreck it Ralph
Wreck It Ralph is a story of the nemesis in a computer program who wants to be a hero for a change.
The characters' desires are compelling enough that they drive the story to its proper conclusion. Except for Ralph, everyone seem to be consistent with their characterization as computer programs.
The film obviously protects the sensibilities of children against violence as typified by the car race. But the theme generally is about violence brought about by following one's own way at the detriment of others. In the end, it is a question of the real order of things vs. one's own way, or the common good vs. personal good. Pick your choice.
It also gives emphasis to the beauty of friendships. It is an inspiring movie.
