Uncharted had a feel that it was based on something else, but I was thinking like a book or something. I'm guessing sense Playstation produced this than that means it actually based on a game.
Can't tell you if it's true to the material, all I can tell you is that I liked it.
It's an action-adventure flick that's fun and exciting.
Tom Holland and Mark Walberg made a decent team for me. It's funny, I could not see either or doing the movie by themselves, but they make a lot of sense together.
Can't come up with much to say about it, except that it was as good as I thought it would be. It not going to change lives and it's in no way bad movie, and in all the ways its worth seeing.
Fmovies: Uncharted (2022) : Movie Review -
Every action-adventure film is supposed to remind you of Indiana Jones, even though it has different features and set-up. One has to admit that even our old lad Indian Jones has lost a lot of ground and charm with the last film because it couldn't immerse those old adventures in modern day theories. We don't even have many great swashbuckling flicks since we have been through with those classic pirate films of Errol Flynn and Johnny Depp. What if a video game adaptation is trying to mix these two adventurous theories together? That's how Uncharted feels most of the time. Although it goes over the top sometimes, it still has that larger-than-life vision to make a fine and plausible excuse.
What helps the most is its modern-day storytelling. Well, the video game itself isn't too old, so it was obvious, but there is a balanced mixture of many theories and adventurous elements. It's not like we haven't seen them before, but they will remind you of several films. Remember that "believe" segment from Disney's recent flick 'The Raya And The Last Dragon'? It's there too. And then there's every known theory of treasure hunting, sacrifice, lost relatives, and betrayal.
The film is about the greatest treasure hunt that was never found. 'Lost' he says, not gone. After a small flashback scene, Uncharted begins with a street-smart thief, Nathan Drake (Tom Holland), who is recruited by seasoned treasure hunter Victor "Sully" Sullivan (Mark Wahlberg) to recover a fortune lost by Ferdinand Magellan 500 years ago, in the very first official meeting. What starts as a heist job for the duo becomes a globe-trotting, white-knuckle race to reach the prize before the ruthless Moncada (Antonio Banderas), who believes he and his family are the rightful heirs. If Nate and Sully can decipher the clues and solve one of the world's oldest mysteries, they stand to find $5 billion in treasure and perhaps even Nate's long-lost brother, but only if they can learn to trust each other, which is not easy. One is naive, while the other is a crook, and you know how it goes with them. The duo steal a golden cross, a key to some mysterious lock, and then they travel to Barcelona, where the treasure is supposedly hidden, to get Sully's contact Chloe Frazer (Sophia Ali) to join them as she has the second key. The trio explores a lot of secrets from the past and learns the true colours of the betraying ones during this gold hunt. What kinds of adventures and risks await them is all you get to see in Uncharted.
Uncharted has got a tight screenplay right from the first scene, and it wraps up all the adventures quickly in less than two hours. Now, that's indeed very quick. It's a regular action film but has got some huge action sequences to entertain the action lovers. Even the opening scene is damn good, and it kind of gives you an idea that you are in for a large-scale action ride. The visuals also help in making it appalling. Not to mention the high-rage cinematography, especially in those flying scenes. That's where you have to keep your brain aside because it's not created to have any logic, it's generated with only one motive, and that's entertainment! Watch out for those high-octane action sequences in the pre-climax and climax portions. The former takes you high in the air, which is close to the stratosphere, I guess, while the latter takes you into the middle of air and water.
Going through a far more arduous process than many feature films would come close to experiencing when it comes to simply seeing the light of day, with news of an Uncharted movie being bandied about all the way back in 2008 with announcements following in 2010 that director David O. Russell would be the man in charge of the film as it stood those many moons ago, the first feature of the newly minted Sony Playstation Productions is thankfully more entertaining than most video game adaptations but in the harsh reality of the real world, that's not much of an achievement.
Full of life, spectacle, lovable characters and more than its fair share of Indiana Jones DNA, Sony's incredibly popular Uncharted video game series is a deservedly praised property that many were excited to see be turned into a real life living and breathing entity but while director for hire Ruben Fleischer nails a few set pieces and continues on the type of form he showed with the second Zombieland and the first Venom (with his 2009 Zombieland debut feature feeling more and more like a fluke occurrence), there's a blandness too Uncharted that is unavoidable, as the low hanging fruit it clearly was attempting to reach sits firmly in its grasp.
Following the treasure hunting exploits of new partners in crime, Tom Holland's daring Nathan Drake and Mark Wahlberg's long time swindler Victor Sullivan, as the two miss-matched operators attempt a globe spanning hunt of Ferdinand Magellan lost fortune that also is being hunted down by Sophia Ali's Chloe Frazer and Antonio Banderas's villain by the numbers Santiago Moncada, Uncharted is absolutely Indiana Jones lite, just without the winning jokes, the constant inventiveness and the wholly engaging characters.
Getting started with a fairly eye-popping set piece that quickly gives way to an extended predominantly pedestrian formula of Drake and Sullivan getting to know each other while tracking down the next clue to their golden dreams, Uncharted struggles to do much of note for a significant amount of time with the film and us an audience awaiting something or someone to awake the films sleepwalking feeling that only really ever comes far too late in the equation when flying pirate ships and daring plane escapes take hold.
Showcasing that Fleischer does know his way around an action set piece and a comedic set-up and that his tried and true performers have engaged and entertained audiences around the world countless times before, there's stages late in the piece here where Uncharted shows a little more energy and showmanship giving it more winning moments than your average video game adaptation but it's not enough to save the film entirely from its monotonous moments and uninspiring chemistry from its two main leads.
Involved in the project for better part of a decade, Wahlberg was always a somewhat controversial choice as Sullivan and he does nothing to try and elevate himself from his recent funk of paycheck collecting performances and can't do enough to make us think we're watching anyone but Marky Mark while the so hot right now Holland commits himself physically as Drake, his turn also isn't worth celebrating with the two well-liked actors unable to generate much spark together let alone individually, a problem the film was never going to overcome no matter how much else it may've gotten right.
Final Say -
There is fun to be had from Uncharted but most of the good times start rolling in a little too late to s
Uncharted fmovies. 5 out of 5 stars.
Uncharted is an awesome action adventure film based on one of the best game series. The film is a prequel based before the events of the first game for those who are familiar with the games. For audiences who are not. The film is one fun action adventure. Nathan Drake (Tom Holland) meets Sully (Mark Wahlberg) who are on a treasure hunt while Santiago (Antonio Banderas) is also after the same price and will stop at nothing to get it.
The film concept kind of has a Indiana Jones, National Treasure, or even Tomb Raider feel. The film is action packed with some exciting action sequences. Tom Holland is great for the role as Nate. Mark Wahlberg is also a perfect choice for Sully. Seeing Mark and Tom nitpick each other is a lot of fun to see them on screen. Sophia Ali is great as Chloe who joins with them on the treasure hunt. Which there is a lot of double crossings. Tati Gabrielle and Antonio Banderas playing the villains of the film is great.
The film has humor. Tom Holland brings a lot to the character. By the time the film reaches its end. The character becomes the adventurer Nathan Drake that is in the games. The climax with an aerial combat as they lifted two old voyager ships and Nate fighting against the bad guys is a lot of fun and thrilling.
The film is one of the best movies this year. I do hope to see sequels happening. There is a mid credit scene that sets up for a sequel.
I've never played the games, so I don't know how accurate it is or if the characters are similar to the game counterparts. I don't know if there were references to the games!! I do think there is a cameo (on the beach), but I didn't know who he was.
What I do know this movie features some of the lamest dialogue I have heard in a big screen movie in years!! And it's not even slightly believable. That said, it's action was well done and fun!!
Of the cast, I liked Tom Holland, he gives a good performance and is clearly doing most of his own stunts!! He gives off Tom Cruise in Cocktail vibes during the scene in which he is working behind the bar. Mark Whalberg is Mark Whalberg, you know what you are getting. Sofia Ali was fine, but Antonio Banderas is woefully under used.
I wonder how much Papa John's paid for that product placement.
It features my pet hates of bloodless death's and noisy chewing, It pays tribute to/rips off Indiana Jones, but if you are going to steal, steal from the best!! But I had a good time watching it
There is a post credit scene.
Uncharted is quite enjoyable for what it is except a few parts otherwise I loved it and Tom Holland was perfect as Nathan Drake! Mark Walberg was decent I've seen him be stronger in other roles I love him in Pain and Gain. I was very happy to see a cameo of Nolan North on the beach that was perfectly placed! I understand ones that bash Uncharted if anything the best experience is 4DX cause it's like a rollercoaster or IMAX format would be sufficient. Damn I guess my review wasn't appreciated but it is a great movie!
