Ratchet & Clank is Now out on Blu-Ray

ratchet and clank blurayRatchet & Clank  is the definitive video game adaptation. Even though the original box office receipts show otherwise, the property that I initially considered 15 years too late made a lasting impression.  I was initially uncomfortable with the idea as we had seen video game adaptations like Super Mario Bros., Doom, Final Fantasy, Double Dragon, DOA: Dead or Alive and an endless list of live-action or animated features that went absolutely nowhere, they were bland, boring and completely veered off course from the source material.

I rewatched the the Blu-ray the other night and had the same exact sentiment that I did as I sat in the theater for my initial viewing, “Holy Sh!t! Kevin Munroe (director) got it right!” Ratchet & Clank is finally a video game adaptation that is worth watching and the settings on my 4K TV only enhance the viewing experience.

Munroe and company worked closely with the video game producers at Insomniac Games, incorporating scenes from the latest incarnation for the PS4 and the story of the original classic game to give audiences an animated feature that sucks you into the story, making you almost forget you are watching an animated feature.

The movie surpasses all expectations, but with a Blu-ray release it was slightly disappointing. There are only two featurettes on the Blu-ray, a short documentary called: Ratchet & Clank: A Hero’s Journey that shows you how the video game heroes made it on to the big screen and Ratchet & Clank: Leveling Up, the evolution of the characters.

For the bonus features, what would have also been interesting is adding some aspects of the new game for the PS4 and more behind the scenes stuff with the original creators. Beyond that, the movie is fantastic family fun and should be watched at least once by fans of the property and/0r animation as a whole.

Ratchet & Clank is out now on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD.
