Ratchet and Clank were two of the best things to come out of the Playstation 2, with their slightly crass, ever-irreverent humour. The games were sort of a cross between Looney Tunes and Futurama, and they were always fun, challenging and sometimes laugh-out-loud funny. And now they’re making a movie out of the first game. I want to believe this will be an enjoyable animated outing, but from what I hear, it really is just a rehash of the first video game, and I can’t help but wonder why they don’t just remaster and re-release the game instead of trying this sort of thing. I mean, I’m all for a Ratchet and Clank movie, but nothing about this trailer really grabs me.
Ratchet & Clank comes out in 2015.
