Hollywood's incessant need to transform every video game into a feature film is once again evident here. Ratchet and Clank is just another tiresome rehash of so many other CGI excursions. Nothing really new hits the screen that hasn't been said or done before.

What's most troubling is the unfortunate fact that  parents will be forced to endure this nonsense to please their child.  Adapting one digital media into another leaves little to the imagination creative wise.  All the characters and potential scenarios are already in place. A live action video game, Wow - How original !
