The Uncharted movie is based on a series of PlayStation games, and Trevor Holland plays the role of famed treasure hunter Nathan Drake. This adventure film is about a man with a black heart and a golden heart, who travels to different places and finds buried treasure. He uses all of his weapons to find lost gold and silver. The movie is set on a pirate ship that he discovers in a mysterious location, and it features some of the most unique action scenes in film.
This movie takes liberties with the characters and plot, and isn’t as compelling as the video games. Director Ruben Fleischer does a good job of setting up the characters, but the film relies too much on the camaraderie between Tom Holland and Mark Wahlberg. This isn’t a good thing, as this camaraderie doesn’t feel like the film’s heart. It’s a great adaptation of the series, but it’s also a waste of time.
While it offers plenty of adventure and excitement, Uncharted lacks tone and focus. It seems like it might be longer than it is, but the action sequences do stand out and the movie itself has its moments. A number of characters make it a worthwhile experience, including Chloe Frazer (Sophia Ali) and Jo Braddock (Tati Gabrielle). While there are many elements to this film that are well-crafted, it’s ultimately an uneven movie that doesn’t live up to expectations.
