Ratchet & Clack Review
Everyone’s favorite game jumps from PlayStation to the big screen with Ratchet & Clank: The Movie, now playing in theaters.
Ratchet is the last of his kind, a foolhardy lombax who grew up without a family. Clank is a pint-sized robot with more brains than brawn. After stumbling upon a weapon that can destroy entire planets, they join forces with a team of do-gooders known as the Galactic Rangers. Together, they must stop the evil alien Chairman Drek from utilizing this dangerous technology. Along the way, Ratchet and Clank learn valuable lessons about heroism, friendship and discovering one's own identity.
Ratchet & Clack is faced-paced, with a action heavy origin story that honors the last 14 years of the games's franchise. And has the kid-friendly balance up on the big screen. The film delivers enough sci-fi color and swoop-swishing atmosphere of the series that will make the kid inside you grinning.
And there is still the same thump-and-tumble slapstick cartoon violence that game has, which will leave parents pleased with. Plus, the "dream big and do the right thing" message will hopefully leave kids feeling inspired and certainly will have the parents nodding pleasantly.
