Based on the popular video game franchise, Ratchet & Clank follows two unlikely heroes as they struggle to stop a vile alien from destroying every planet in the Solana Galaxy. Ratchet is the last of his kind, a foolhardy "Lombax" who has grown up alone on a backwater planet with no family of his own. Clank is a pintsized robot with more brains than brawn. When the two stumble upon a dangerous weapon capable of destroying entire planets they must join forces with a team of colorful heroes called the Galactic Rangers in order to save the galaxy. Along the way, they will learn about heroism, friendship, and the importance of discovering one's own identity in this thrilling and funny adventure featuring the voices of Paul Giamatti, John Goodman, Rosario Dawson and Sylvester Stallone.

Critics Consensus: Ratchet & Clank may satisfy very young viewers, but compared to the many superior options available to families and animation enthusiasts, it offers little to truly recommend.

Video game-based sci-fi adventure is fun but forgettable.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Ratchet and Clank is a snarky, self-referential animated movie inspired by the popular PlayStation video game franchise. The movie has a little less edge than the games -- there's not much in the way of language or innuendo -- but there is some body humor (barfing, etc.) and plenty of cartoonish violence: Think space battles, explosions (including planets), blasters, and peril. While it's not particularly original -- and it has so many jokes about wanting to be super famous that you might want to talk with your kids about that theme afterward -- it does offer lessons about humility and doing the right thing, as well as the value of friendship and teamwork.
