On February 18, 2022, Sony released Uncharted, a spin off to the 2016 Ps4 game series.  It is about a treasure hunter Victor Sullivan, played by Mark Wahlberg, and his friend Nathan Drake, played by Tom Holland, going out on a heist to recover a 500 year old  lost fortune. But it turns out someone else–the ruthless Santiago Moncada–is also after the same fortune.  The hunt turns into a race around the globe to find this old $5 million fortune. The main players have to solve ancient mysteries while trying to outsmart old traps.

It is an interesting movie that avid gamers and action movie-goers should definitely see! Writer, Owen Gleiberman, from Variety says that this “video game movie” is “better than most.”  In addition, movie critic, M.N. Miller, says,  “Uncharted is a mix of a charismatic cast with evident chemistry between leads, classic tropes, and storytelling plot holes.”
