Well that's the thing, isn't it? Even Eidos couldn't find someone to do Tomb Raider way back when, even Sony backed out until Paramount came along. And that was TOMB RAIDER!
Still, Ratchet & Clank was one of the most beautifully crafted animations I've seen in a while. And I specifically mean on a technical level, not narrative.
That being said, I still really like the movie, but I can understand people's complaints.
