QUICK TAKE:
Computer Animated Sci-Fi: A young mechanic joins a group of galactic heroes to stop a villain who's been destroying planets for his own gain.
PLOT:
On the planet Veldin, Ratchet (voice of JAMES ARNOLD TAYLOR) is a somewhat cat-like Lombax who works as a mechanic in a remote garage run by Grimroth (voice of JOHN GOODMAN). Having crash-landed there as an orphaned baby, Ratchet is good at fixing things, but wants something more from his life. Namely, that's to become one of the Galactic Rangers. But their leader, Captain Qwark (voice of JIM WARD), quickly dismisses Ratchet for a variety of reasons, leaving the Lombax depressed. But when out flying with a robot, Clank (voice of DAVID KAYE), that crash-landed on his planet after being deemed a defect from an assembly line, Ratchet ends up saving the day and the lives of the rest of the Rangers -- Elaris (voice of ROSARIO DAWSON), Cora (voice of BELLA THORNE) and Brax (voice of VINCENT TONG) -- with his quick thinking.

That doesn't sit well with the villainous Chairman Drek (voice of PAUL GIAMATTI) who, with the help of his mad scientist inventor, Dr. Nefarious (voice of ARMIN SHIMERMAN), has been blowing up uninhabited planets so that he can create a new one from the best pieces of each destroyed one. After Ratchet becomes a member of the Rangers due to his heroism, he then joins the group in their effort to stop Drek. But they must not only contend with his armed forces, including the hulking robot Victor Von Ion (voice of SYLVESTER STALLONE), but also treachery from within.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
If they're fans of the video game series on which it's based, they probably will, while the computer-animated action trappings might draw in others.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG
For action and some rude humor.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
