Uncharted is a 2022 action-adventure film directed by Ruben Fleischer from a screenplay by Rafe Lee Judkins, Art Marcum and Matt Holloway, based on the video game franchise of the same name developed by Naughty Dog and published by Sony Interactive Entertainment. It stars Tom Holland as Nathan Drake and Mark Wahlberg as his mentor Victor Sullivan, with Sophia Ali, Tati Gabrielle, and Antonio Banderas in supporting roles.
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.

There’s just not enough story that matters. Full Review | Original Score: Dtt stern-enzi – WXIX-TV (Cincinnati, OH)
It’s not that much of a movie, but a diversion. It’s a big, dumb diversion; the best thing about it is that it serves as evidence that Tom Holland makes for a wonderful movie star. Full ReviewAmy Nicholson – FilmWeek (KPCC – NPR Los Angeles)
It’s all mildly amusing, mildly exciting and entirely routine, just as you might expect from a director such as the reliably faceless Ruben Fleischer (Venom), who manages to go from one hit to the next without ever showing any particular talent.Jake Wilson – The Age (Australia)
For fans of each of treasure hunter Nathan Drakes incredibly convoluted adventures, this movie is likely going to feel like a bona fide disaster. Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4Sara Michelle Fetters – MovieFreak.com
Uncharted is bland and disappointing without being outright disastrous. Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4James Berardinelli – ReelViews
It achieves the primary goal of based-on-a-video-game movies, which is that the non-stunts parts like storyline and character dont get in the way of the stunts parts, which are the reason we are there. Full Review | Original Score: B+Nell Minow – Movie Mom
Uncharted drops toward the wrong end of the chart every time Holland and Wahlberg engage in juvenile bickering, which alas is all too often. Full ReviewBrian Lowry – CNN.com

If less is more, “Uncharted” must be a masterpiece. It’s bloodless, heartless, joyless, sexless and, with one exception, charmless. Full ReviewJoe Morgenstern – Wall Street Journal
“Uncharted,” you say? That’s a funny title for an action-adventure movie that doesn’t stray one inch from the well-tread path of what came before it. Full Review | Original Score: 2/4Johnny Oleksinski New York Post
“Uncharted” is like a well-tooled sportscar with an underpowered engine. The car does keep going, but not at high speed. Vroom . . . vroom? Vroom . . . sputter. Full Review | Original Score: 2/4Mark Feeney – Boston Globe
Better lower your expectations about this video game turned movie. But Tom Holland, teaming up with Mark Wahlberg, proves his Spider Man success is no fluke, which makes this Indiana Jones knockoff more watchable than it has any right to be. Full ReviewPeter Travers – ABC News
“Uncharted” isnt great cinema. Its not even great action-adventure cinema. But if there are better ways to spend two hours, well, there are worse ones too. Full Review | Original Score: C+Caroline Siede – Fox 10 Phoenix
It’s a second-generation copy of someone else’s static-y greatest-hits compilation. You’re better off watching old walkthrough clips. Full ReviewDavid Fear – Rolling Stone
If you love the game and would like to keep it going in a big room with Junior Mints and a 96-ounce Coke, “Uncharted” might work for you. But if you want an actual movie, you’re out of luck. Full Review | Original Score: 2/4Chris Hewitt – Minneapolis Star Tribune
