So...did anyone else like the movie?

17 posts in this topic

I know, I know, the movie the game was based on (even though it was released first, though the game thought players watched the movie first...which I did, as I didn't get a PS4 until August) bombed horribly at the box office. But I enjoyed it nonetheless, to the point that I've got it on Blu-Ray/DVD combo pack, along with a digital copy on iTunes (from said Blu-Ray pack). :D

 

In all fairness...it probably would've had a bigger success as a direct-to-video movie instead...who knows.

 

Who else liked it, assuming they did see it? And if you haven't, it's currently on Netflix!

My mom went with me to it. Though honestly, she was only into the series BECAUSE of the naughty subtitles...she never actually PLAYED them, so she kept asking me who the characters were.

 

First time in 3D, went a second time in 2D by myself (so I could understand the story better without her asking). Sadly, the theater I went to didn't have anyone else but us.

Yeah I found no reason to dislike it, it told the story of the game in a convenient movie fashion. I personally played the game first (and I'm glad I did because I'd rather have been spoiled for the movie), and the movie added a lot of "BTS" stuff. I remember a lot of parts that were in the movie that weren't in the game. I guess the movie format allowed for scenes that wouldn't normally fit in a videogame. Nonetheless it was a very solid videogame movie (unlike AC ROFL) and a good animated film. Kinda short but not that big of a deal. I think this movie has appealed to a lot of younger kids who don't game, but would like to play the games in the future. It's an awesome thing really.

I enjoyed the movie very much. It had action,creativity and good animation. It may have been a box office bomb but that doesn't make it a bad movie. I haven't played the new game yet but judging by the movie I'd say the game is going to be very fun. I know the movie is a little different from the game but either way I liked it. If you are a fan of Ratchet and Clank then I recommended seeing this movie.

I've certainly seen better animated movies (I've seen much worse too) but I took my son to see it and he absolutely loved it. I told him I have the games it was based on at home and he begged me to play them with him. So it made a Ratchet & Clank fan out of my son, if that isn't a success then I don't know what is. B)

What an awesome story! I nominate you for Father of the Year. :) 

 

My daughter is a bit too young for the movie (she's almost 3 and doesn't have a movie-length attention span), but I bought the Blu-ray and will watch it with her soon. 

 

I liked the movie myself. I thought it focused a little too much on the touching/drama side of things compared to the games always being balls-to-the-wall silly. But that was my only real complaint. 

 

On a related note, I do think it was smart to tweak Ratchet's character in the movie and game. In the original game, he was really a jerk to Clank for a decent chunk of the story and the movie would have needed to spend too much time on his change of heart. Besides, R&C is more fun story-wise when they're best buds.

I liked the movie for what it was. Was it the best? Not really. However, it was entertaining enough (as a fan of the series) and they did change enough for the game to make both seem fresh enough

I watched it with my lilttle cousin and we both liked. There's no reason do dislike.

Captain Qwark was as funny and annoying as he was in games. lol

I liked it, but then again I was already a big R&C fan. 

Like a previous comment, I went to see it with a friend, and we were the only two people at the showing. Kind of sad to see it not getting much love, but we enjoyed it :D

I gave it a three on IMDb after watching it early last year. Harmlessly forgettable, but it was just meandering and witless, lacking some of the more clever and charming cues I love the games for.

I certainly enjoyed the movie, I never put the bar too high on movies based on games so I can have an enjoyable experience anyways.

It was alright, when I went to watch it the only other people in the cinema was my family and a father and daughter. This was on release day.

I watched it last month on TV and as a big fan of the series I didn't like it.  As a 15 years old franchise it should target a more mature audience, instead of that childish style

Didn't watch it in the cinema, but bought the Blu-Ray of it and I actually really liked it. It was always a childhood dream of mine to get a Ratchet & Clank movie and for me this movie delivered. I like the movie's story far more than the game's story, especially when you compare the endings. I like to call the movie Ratchet & Clank: A New Hope, obviously a reference to Star Wars. Solid 7/10 for the movie.

I saw it on Netflix just recently and I thought it was a great movie.  I have been a fan of Ratchet and Clank for awhile and I didn't really see any reason not to like it.  I haven't played the new game yet, but I think the movie did a good job of keeping the theme straight.  I also loved some of the actors that voiced the cast of supporting characters.  Was pleasantly surprised to see Rosario Dawson and John Goodman.

If you can turn your brain off completely you can enjoy this film a bit.

 

I chuckled twice throughout the entire film and constantly cringed. Other than it looks good for a low budget film. It has no story and is just full of shoved in references. 

 

Very surprised anyone here even thought it was "alight" it was utterly trash Imo and that's coming from a 22yr old kid that loved the original/future trilogies. Not worth the 90 minutes of watching on Netflix and so glad I didn't watch it with my friends or gf or I would never hear the end of it.
