Did You Know?


Initially, Sony was planning to make a live action adaption of the video game Ratchet & Clank (2002) in 2005. Edgar Wright turned it down to do Hot Fuzz (2007), Guillermo del Toro was brought on, but walked over disagreements regarding the tone of the movie. Other directors including Jon Favreau, James Gunn, Brett Ratner, Joss Whedon and Michael Bay were also considered before the project was scrapped entirely due to budget constraints. See more »


Clank: Ratchet, we are clearly not prepared for this. We should have contacted the rangers to warn them of the attack!
Ratchet: Haha! Yeah, like they'd know who we are!
Clank: But you said they were your friends!
Ratchet: ...Whaaaaat? I think you're quoting me out of context.
Clank: [Playing recording of Ratchet's voice] The rangers are actually my, uh, friends!
Ratchet: Do you record everything I say?
Clank: [Playing recording of Ratchet's voice] Do you record everything I say?

Almost Perfect
1 May 2016 | by jamesanglimSee all my reviews

As a baby, my dad woke me up at 11:00 P.M. playing the original 2002 Ratchet & Clank. You might expect me to totally bawl, but instead, I sat there in awe. Every night, I would stay up late to watch him play the game. Then came Going Commando and Up Your Arsenal, but he quit after Deadlocked. Then, in 2008, I started to play the games. I asked for a PSP and PS3 for Christmas (So I could play the Future games, Size Matters, and Secret Agent Clank), and I got my wish. I collected Ratchet & Clank games so I could play them (Including PS Move Heroes and the Collection(PS3 and PS Vita)). I sobbed when I learned that the series ended. But I grew happy when the movie was announced, and even more when the PS4 version was announced. I bought the PS4 version, and while I haven't beat it yet, it's awesome! So today, I decided to see the movie with dad. It's just what Captain Quark says about the movie in the PS4 game (play it to learn).

Positives: Almost everything: Awesome story, awesome casting, awesome animation, awesome music, etc.

Negatives: 1 jump scare that's too surprising, that's it.

Overall, if you like PlayStation, CGI, and of course, Ratchet & Clank, you'll love this movie.

Note: Cover your ears during the jump scare.
