This clip from Ruben Fleischer’s video game adaptation is excruciating to watch. Over the top CGI and a total disregard for the laws of physics mean that there’s no peril on display here. Throw in the fact that you’ve seen this type of sequence done better in a half a dozen other movies – including The Living Daylights – and you know that Uncharted is a stinker. It’s going to be soulless and unoriginal – stealing from better movies and updating with a computer generated sheen.
Street-smart thief Nathan Drake (Tom Holland) is recruited by seasoned treasure hunter Victor “Sully” Sullivan (Mark Wahlberg) to recover a fortune lost by Ferdinand Magellan 500 years ago. 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 work together.
