Ratchet & Clank Superbly Adapts a Great Franchise to a New Medium
Ratchet & Clank is a really superb adaptation of the games, and a good movie to boot. It has a solid, albeit less than original message: You don't have to be big or impressive to be good, you just have to do what's right and have heart. This is, as Ratchet says, actually pretty good. It encourages humility and just being a decent person, and the movie highlighted giving more intellectual, less physical people respect and praise. It has characters that feel very genuine. Ratchet is a geek, through and through, and they embrace that without making it cringey. The movie has vibrant action with plenty of the awesome, zany weapons the series is known for. It has clever, self-aware humor that appeals both to long-time fans via inside jokes and easter eggs as well as movie-goers in general via quality wit and homages. This was a properly quality movie, and as both a fan of Ratchet & Clank and a fan of animated films, I was very pleased.
