Film: Uncharted Click for more info

A movie based on not just any videogame, but one of the best franchises in the past decade or so? Using actors who look waaaay too young in comparison to their original counterparts? Was this ever going to be anything but an abject failure?

Well... apparently it can. Now, no, Uncharted is no classic homage to a classic videogame, but despite it really shouldn't working, it actually wasn't bad. In fact it was rather good.

What it managed to nail was the fun factor I suppose. It plays from a very solid playbook, doesn't try anything too brave and makes few mistakes. The action is just as inspired as the source material (in some cases lifting them wholesale). And of course the music was spot on.

So not terrible then and I guess... recommended.
