After watching Uncharted, I’m curious to know what fans can expect from the video game come to life blockbuster. Is the movie well-paced and filled with fun action sequences? Is the dialogue witty? Or is Uncharted a waste of time? The question remains unanswered, but I can say this: it’s certainly fun to watch. I give Uncharted a “B” grade.
Uncharted is a video game come to life blockbuster
In this unavoidably spoiler-filled blockbuster movie review, I’ll try to give you a general overview of the film. Uncharted isn’t a great movie, but it’s fun and consistent, and it borrows from other adventure films. Think Pirates of the Caribbean, The Da Vinci Code, The Mummy, and Mission: Impossible. The movie is PG-13 rated due to violence and language, but it’s not nearly as scary as some PG-13 films. Even 9-year-olds will enjoy this film.
Unfortunately, Uncharted’s story isn’t quite as exciting as its game counterpart. The characters aren’t as interesting as the games themselves, and the movie’s characters don’t really have much of a connection to the world outside. The storyline is somewhat lacking, but the action sequences are spectacular. This makes the film very entertaining and gives the viewer a reason to go out of their way to catch every second.
While there are a couple of missed beats in this action flick, the overall pace is solid. The movie moves quickly from scene to scene, never dragging out scenes. It alternates between dialogue-heavy scenes and hard-core action sequences. Uncharted is definitely worth watching, and will likely earn you a second viewing.

The film follows the adventures of the two main characters, Nathan Drake and Chloe. The story is based on the popular video game series, “Uncharted.” The movie is inspired by the classic games “Indiana Jones” and “Tomb Raider.” It follows Nathan Drake, a smooth-talking history nerd, who supplements his income by stealing from customers. Like Indiana Jones, Drake is based on his older brother Sam, who was expelled from boarding school and disappeared into the world.
It has fun action scenes
There are some fun action scenes in Uncharted, and these don’t take themselves too seriously. When Nathan Drake spits a shot through a candle to kill a generic thug, it’s not just a stunt. Drake is a lovable young rogue, and he develops a cool rapport with Mark Wahlberg’s character, Nate. Another fun character is Chloe Frazer, played by Sophia Ali, who plays a fellow treasure hunter.
While Uncharted has some problems, such as a second act that drags on, it is a fun diversion for fans of video game movies. Director Ruben Fleischer, who directed Zombieland and Venom, has a knack for bringing adventure to cinema. Perhaps another director could have done a better job with Uncharted. Overall, Uncharted is an entertaining diversion for fans of the video game genre.
It has solid dialogue
For fans of adventure games and heist movies, Uncharted is a refreshing change. This third installment follows the adventures of the intrepid trio of Nathan Drake and Sully. Instead of generic heist movies, Uncharted plays it safe and features witty banter between the trio. The film also has plenty of action, puzzles, and chase scenes. The movie also has plenty of fun reminders of Nathan Drake’s defining traits.
While “Uncharted” is a fun romp in the vein of National Treasure, the film fails to match the excitement, mystery, and excitement of its inspiration. The dialogue also feels forced, despite the film’s five credited writers. It’s also a letdown when the movie doesn’t have the chemistry between its two leads. It’s a shame to have to wait so long for Uncharted to find its own footing and redeem itself.
It lacks edge
This is the sequel to Sly 3, a game released on the PlayStation 2 in 2006. The film is like Jak & Daxter meets Lara Croft, but with balls. However, it lacks a certain edge. The game isn’t without its moments, but the plot is predictable and the game lacks an edge. Despite its lack of edge, Uncharted is a fun and action-packed game.
