Trivia

Despite being a remake of the first Ratchet & Clank (2002) game, some characters from other games in the franchise make an appearance and in a few cases, play a role in the story where they originally weren't present. Dallas Wannamaker appears as a reporter, however in the game Ratchet: Deadlocked (2005) he was an announcer on Dreadzone, the fictional gladiatorial combat show that the game is centered around. He is missing his hairpiece in the film and there is even a robotic field reporter who resembles his co-announcer from the game. Dr. Nefarious is an antagonist in the film, despite his first appearance in the games being the third title: Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal (2004). His appearance is changed for story reasons, but at least resembles his form from the games.

Two non-speaking cameos from future games are also shown during a news report near the start of the film- The President from "Ratchet & Clank: Up your Arsenal" and Neftin Prog from Ratchet & Clank: Into the Nexus (2013). See more »

Quotes

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?

For what it is - it's AWESOME!!
4 May 2016 | by StrayFeralSee all my reviews

Let's start with this - I never played any Ratchet & Clank games, however I played the Sly Cooper games and I have an idea of what Ratchet & Clank games are all about. Point is I went to see the movie completely without any expectations, except the trailer gave me the idea it is gonna be a sci-fi adventure cartoon. So I came out of the cinema, just few hours ago.

Indeed, it is a sci-fi adventure cartoon and for what it is, it is truly awesome!! Graphics are great, music is great, sound is great, the plot for what it was intended to be is great!

Now, speaking of the plot, this is not a serious sci-fi cartoon. This is intended to be a funny movie, to make you relax and just have some fun, that's why I am still saying "for what it is". I have no idea of the game plot, so I am judging the movie only here. And honestly I really had some fun watching it.

Also, despite the warnings of cartoon violence and so on, I personally find it absolutely kids-friendly - no real scary moments, no sudden scary sounds, no real scary characters, in fact I intend to grab the blu-ray disk when it comes out and show it to my 3-year- old son, but if you doubt my judgement - go and give the movie a try, before bringing your kids there. Fun is guaranteed anyway.

I am not going to reveal much of the movie, except to mention that they intend to release a sequel, because there are two animation sequences in the end of the movie and the first one is clearly talking of a sequel.

The other thing to mention is they make reference to Sly Cooper, which movie is intended to be released a bit later this year and which I am awaiting so much, because there is one scene in the movie where they show picture of Sly Cooper (they show more pictures too, but I just did not paid attention to the others).

So to finish - for what it is, it's awesome! For me, as a parent, it's totally kids-friendly. It is also family-geared, because the duration is set to 1h 34mins if I remember correctly, which is the usual family format. It is fun and it is really making you relax and enjoy your time, so just give it a try.

As I said, I've never played any of the Ratchet & Clank games, but now think I am definitely going to give them a try.

Enjoy!
