Summary

Uncharted adapts a video game, but you don’t have to be a gamer to see where it lifts its inspiration. This new flick is about treasure hunters stealing ancient gold, but the bigger theft is the film’s brazen thieving from Indiana Jones, Ocean’s Eleven and Pirates of the Caribbean. Still, if anyone can carry off such brazen burglary, it’s smooth criminal Tom Holland, following Spider-Man: No Way Home with a breezy romp that confirms his star power.

Uncharted opens in the UK Feb. 11 and in the US Feb. 18. It isn’t a direct adaptation of the much-loved series of Naughty Dog games, instead telling a new origin story for two-fisted tomb raider Nathan Drake. The film does borrow its opening from the games, however, launching straight into a slam-bang action scene that showcases Holland’s easy charm and some improbably gravity-defying spectacle.
