    Marketing seemed almost non-existent and they seemed to completely aim for children. At the very least I've kids enjoy it so at least the target audience enjoyed it, even if it's no Zootopia.

    Ratchet and Clank A) is a video game franchise which means you have to fight the preconception that video games are bad B) is a video game movie which means you have to fight the preconception that video game movies are terrible C) is a Sony-exclusive franchise which means there are a lot of "gamers" who don't even care about it. In a nutshell, it's a franchise that most people don't know exist or don't care about, plus it's a movie I wouldn't know exist if I didn't keep an eye on gaming news (as opposed to Marvel Movie #Whatever or Zootopia). Also it's probably not dark and edgy enough.



    The Assassin's Creed movie may fare better since you can definitely market it as "generic action movie with fantasy and beefy white dudes", which isn't inherently different from those Marvel movies.

    Meh. I don't give cridics much stock. The ticket sales are concerning, but that shouldn't be taken as a sign of quality either.

    But the movie was great. Hell, I personally liked it more than the game story-wise, since some of the game's cutscenes felt a little... rushed? Cut-short?

    But yeah, I don't get how people (fans especially) could say this movie sucks. Only thing I can think is that those fans care way more for gameplay than the games' stories. Like they're the type that just skip all the scenes and bash enemies without knowing why they're bashing enemies.

    To be honest, I'm pretty sure this is the first time I've heard about a Ratchet and Clank movie, so it sounds like someone may have dropped the ball as far as advertising, which is a big enough reason to see bad box office numbers in and of itself.

    Reminds me of when Ubisoft released two Assassin's Creed games on the same day.


    Surely that can only hurt sales.

    I liked the movie but I think the original games would have worked better.

    I think the issue with a lot of movies based on video games is that they based on the story already told and unlike when they are adapted from books you already know what it looks like there is no new visual and you loss the element of control.

    This is the same reason I still have faith in the AC movie coming out later this year, it takes place in a time we haven't seen with a new character.

    Maybe the lesson to be learn here is not to put out a movie tie in game that has most of the sense's in it before your video game movie hits the screen.

    I actually liked this movie. I hope the reviews don't badly impact the production of the Sly Cooper movie.

    Personally I've payed all the Ratchet and Clank games except the new one and saw the movie and I really enjoyed it. I felt that it had the same humor that the games do, which I'm very happy about. The cg was absolutely incredible. They had the voice actors from the games in it. I feel that the only issues are that it released after the game, it should have come out before, that it's release is surrounded by much bigger names, like the Jungle Book and Civil War, and that Sony really dropped the ball on marketing the movie. Which are all problem with the studio and not about the movie itself. All I'm saying is that I've been a fan of Ratchet and Clank for a long time, saw it, and really liked it. Also, Ashley, don't compare Ratchet and Clank to those god awful Fantastic Four movies. Or at least see the movie so you have your own opinion on it before you make claims like that. That's not cool bra.
