Uncharted film review (2022)

I’ve played most of the games on my PlayStation and really enjoyed the game Uncharted 4 A Thief’s End. So, I was interested to go see the film to see what they had done. There were a few moments I really enjoyed in the movie. But the whole thing felt rushed, it didn’t have the flow and felt forced, choppy at times. 

Tom Holland made a good account of himself playing Nathan Drake, but he really did seem too young for the role. I was disappointed with Mark Wahlberg’s performance and the female lead Sophia Ali, I couldn’t get over her changing accent! She sounded botched American, floating to some kind of weird English accent, to Australian and back again! It really bugged me out that did!

We rushed through the story rather quickly, the characters got on to a plane, and the only time I laugh and I don’t think anyone understood who the guy was on the beach when they arrived at the beach scene was Nolan North who voiced Drake in the games, got his cameo. Was I the only person in the cinema to notice that??

I love the way the Spanish galley ships looked on screen and the moment when one dropped from the chopper into the water, its sails dropping and started to sail was a lovely piece of cinema photography. Overall, I was disappointed with the film and the ending.
