“If something’s lost, it can be found…”
Uncharted released in theaters on February 18th 2022. Based on the popular video game series, the action-adventure film stars Tom Holland, Mark Wahlberg, Antonio Banderas, Sophia Ali and Tati Gabrielle. It runs for approximately two hours.
A treasure hunter named Sully recruits Nathan Drake to help him track down the lost treasure of Ferdinand Magellan.
Here is the trailer:
Uncharted will remind you of films like Indiana Jones, Tomb Raider and Jungle Cruise, as it brings us a new origin story with lots of humor and action mixed in. Is it worthy of your next watch? Let’s find out…
Fun dynamic between characters.
Tom Holland and Mark Wahlberg were a dream team! The banter worked, the action scenes worked, and everything in-between! They really brought these video game characters to life with charm and finesse.
The other characters were terrific as well and I was really happy to see Tati Gabrielle on the big screen!
You don’t need to know anything about the game to enjoy this…
I was slightly worried that I would feel confused because I am familiar with the game series, but I wouldn’t say that I know that much about it other than the premise. I’m sure fans of the game will be happy with plenty of Easter eggs thrown their way and make sure you stick around for the couple of post credit scenes as well.
The treasure hunt action plot has been done a million times before, but I love movies like this and I thought this was a worthy entry and a lot of fun!
There are plenty of twists and betrayals in this one, but most of them are really predictable and by the numbers. I don’t think this really took anything away from the film because I was still entertained, but I guess I wanted at least one twist that I didn’t see coming.
So am I in or out?
This film is fun for the whole family! You’ll get plenty of laughs and action to keep you entertained from start to finish. I loved the humor in this one and I’m ready for more treasure hunting adventures with Sully and Nate!
Plus, Tom Holland gets major points for those bartending skills!
