Ratchet & Clank – In the animated realm, Ratchet and Clank comes out today. Based off a video game series, the film follows two space heroes that go out to stop an evil alien named Chairman Drek from destroying every planet in a galaxy.
Universal knocks it out of the park with this transfer. Possibly due to being a CG animated film, the film looks great in its flawless 1080p presentation. The film also includes a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio and sounds great with the supporting video.
The new releases is a bit lacking in extras, only including 2 featurettes with the film.
However, for those who loved the video game, or just wanted to try something new, Ratchet and Clank is a solid pick up in that, you’ll watch wondering why it didn’t do better in the theaters. It was a pleasant film that’s enjoyable for the whole family.
