RATCHET & CLANK is an animated feature, based on a popular videogame, about a pair of unlikely heroes who team up to save the galaxy.

Violence

The action occurs within a clearly fantastical space adventure setting, in which characters engage in battles with unrealistic laser weapons and cannons. The fighting is noisy, with explosions and bright laser blasts, but there is no injury detail. The action in these scenes plays with a strong comic tone as characters joke their way through the danger, which reduces any intensity in the mild violence.

Language

There is infrequent very mild bad language.

The film also contains moments of very mild rude humour, such as a character making a comment when he finds his face squashed near the backside of another character in an enclosed space.
