Ratchet & Clank movie and event review


By Shelby C.

“You don’t have to do big things to become a hero, just the right ones.” That’s my favorite line from the movie, Ratchet and Clank. Another cute line is when the main character, Ratchet says he’s going to “kick some asteroid.” I think that is very clever because the movie takes place in space – well, some of it takes place on earth too.

A really funny part was when the head bad guy (an alien) in space was speaking to his army and the second he turned his back they were all texting.

My favorite character is Clank, the robot, he is so funny! I like Ratchet too, but Clank is my favorite because he made me laugh so much.

The movie may look like it’s mostly for boys, but there are female Rangers that defend the earth. They are super strong and powerful too! Elaris is one of the girl Rangers and she is very funny but also very tough and powerful.

Did you know the person who voices the lead character Ratchet is also the voice of Johnny Test? So cool! It surprised me too!

If you like action packed, hilarious thrilling cartoon films then I suggest you go see it! Oh but it was too mature for my 6 year-old sister!

From Rainmaker Entertainment and Blockade Entertainment, Ratchet & Clank is a CG-animated movie based on the iconic PlayStation video game. Two unlikely heroes struggle to stop a vile alien named Chairman Drek 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 pint-sized 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.
