Not good, not bad
14 August 2016 | by samyoung-82648See all my reviews

Ratchet and Clank is based on a PlayStation video game of the same name. According to my kids, some of the characters and weapons appear in the movie. To sum the movie up, it's a 90 minute trailer for the game.

The story is fairly tight. It introduces the characters quickly. It was wonderful to see John Goodman (the father from the Rosanne TV show). Most of the characters behave logically, although they are highly stereotyped.

Ultimately, the story is fairly superficial. It has a few superb gags (eg. Wilhelm falls off the bridge and screams. This is a reference to the famous Wilhelm Scream). However, other than the occasional witty gag, the story was very average, not bad, just average.

Unlike Star Trek, I didn't need to bite my fist to dull the pain with this movie. It was pleasant. The kids were kept entertained. The animation was good.

For those that are interested, there are two reasonable female characters. One plays the quiet but intelligent type, the other a gun-toting Clint Eastwood type. Both of the characters added some character to the story. Unfortunately, like all other characters in the movie, none of them contributed to moving the plot forward. That's because nothing moved the plot forward.

Best character: Clank (David Kaye). The character's personality was most probably modelled on Big Hero 6's Baymax (Scott Adsit)
