Ratchet and Clank

Cartoons. They bring back many childhood memories. Cartoons can be good to watch when times get tough, such as towards the end of the term or when taking a nice break from finals week. Ratchet and Clank, an animated movie can satisfy your needs of watching cartoons.
Ratchet and Clank was originally Playstation game turned into a movie in 2016. The movie stars James Arnold Taylor (Ratchet) and David Kaye (Clank). Other popular actors and actresses include Bella Thorne, Rosario Dawson, and Sylvester Stallone.
After three planets have been destroyed, other planets begin to wonder who could be next. Clank,a super smart and tiny robot and who is played by David Kaye, has just escaped from the evil Chairman Drek and knows the answers to why planets are being destroyed. Clank tries to contact the Galactic Rangers, but ends up stopping at a deserted planet, where he then meets Ratchet. The main character Ratchet, played by James Arnold Taylor, is the last alien of his kind. Ratchet and Clank work together once they find a weapon that could potentially destroy the Solana Galaxy. Ratchet does many heroic actions throughout the movie. It is quickly very clear that he is a leader who will end up being very heroic in the end. Ratchet and Clank eventually team up with the Galactic Rangers who will aid in the capture of Chairman Drek, who has a hold of the dangerous weapon.
Ratchet and Clank is a typical childhood movie, showing acts of heroism and giving some laughs along the way. The most interesting thing about the movie were the CGI effects. The CGI showed many qualities of video game animation. There was a lot of bright colors and the buildings in the movie looked very real as the characters flew their space ships through the sky. Knowing about the video game beforehand, would have been nice in order to understand the deeper meaning of the movie, but the movie was still able to be understood by the viewers. The movie was based on what the video game portrayed in the different levels and took those actions and explained them on the big screen.
If you are looking for a break from school or are just wanting to reminisce about old childhood times, I recommend that you go see Ratchet and Clank. The movie had a good storyline that keeps the viewers interested throughout the entire movie.
