Great movie, ignore the critics, trust yourself

I don't understand on why critics are responding so negatively to the movie. In my opinion, it was a really great movie. It was my childhood game, I loved the game, I loved the movie. Great humour, great characters. I think the critics just need to cool off a bit and take it a little lighter. I don't know what they have against video game movies but the critic to it is way too much. Ratchet and clank movie was made for the fans! Those who already know and love these characters and this style of humour will find a lot to love about the movie, but the uninitiated will likely write it off as just another animated movie. It's a shame, because of the fans who get it. Critics who have no idea about the game should keep their opinions to themselves. Who are they to judge if they don't know anything? Fans know better than you so shut the **** up. Ignore the critics! If the game was your childhood, it's gonna be a memorable movie, taking you back to the past to relive those great memories. Go watch it, you won't regret it.

Ratchet and Clank fans will love it.

For many years, we've had nothing but awful video game films ( excluding the first Mortal Kombat ). But it has finally happened! We have a Video game based movie that's actually faithful to the games! This film was lots of fun, I wouldn't say it's perfect ( since some of the jokes fell flat ) it's by far the best video game movie out there. The animation was beautiful, the cast did a wonderful job, the writing was pretty good, and action scenes were great. I'm glad they got the original cast to play their characters for the film ( except for Drek ) they all did a great job in this film as they did in the games. There's also a great scene at the end that I won't spoil, but I'll just say this, it will make fans excited. If you love the Ratchet and Clank games then you're sure to get a kick out of this movie. Let's hope we get more video game movies like this one, cause it would be great to have animated films based on Mario, Pikmin, Jak and Daxter, and Team Fortress.

A Film for the Whole Family!

Ratchet and Clank was a fantastic and adventurous film which is must see if you are a long time Ratchet and Clank fan. Now the movie may not be for everyone, the movie is aimed for fans and children. The Animation, Voice Acting, and Story will keep you glued to the screen. A few things however such as the pacing of the story are too fast and a little repetitive, but nothing to make you feel to mad about the movie. If you're seeing the critic reviews, don't be influenced by them and be influenced by the reviews of actual fans. Now remember, before expecting the type of humor featured in the old games, it's a kids movie. This movie can be adored by any family, it's charming, action packed, and just beautiful. The new elements added such as Nefarious and more, it's just a great movie.

Ratchet & Clank is indeed an excellent movie for everyone.

Ratchet & Clank is a 2016 American-Canadian 3D computer-animated science fiction action comedy film based on the first game of the platforming video game series of the same name. The film stars the voices of Paul Giamatti, John Goodman, Bella Thorne, Rosario Dawson, James Arnold Taylor, David Kaye and Sylvester Stallone. Series creators Insomniac Games helped with the film's production, screenplay, character development, and animation. The film was directed by Jericca Cleland and Kevin Munroe, featuring an original story written by Munroe and former Insomniac Games Senior Writer T.J. Fixman, who started writing for the series with the Future saga. Several cast members from the games reprised their respective voice roles, and assets from the video games were utilized in the film. The film is an origin story that retells the events of the original Ratchet & Clank, depicting how Ratchet and Clank met each other as they attempt to save the Solana Galaxy from being destroyed by Chairman Drek and the Blarg. However, the film expands on various plot points in greater detail, and incorporates some elements from later series entries, such as the introduction of Doctor Nefarious and the Galactic Rangers.

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.
