Street-smart Nathan Drake (Tom Holland) is recruited by seasoned treasure hunter Victor “Sully” Sullivan (Mark Wahlberg) to recover a fortune amassed by Ferdinand Magellan and lost 500 years ago by the House of Moncada. What starts as a heist job for the duo becomes a globe-trotting, white-knuckle race to reach the prize before the ruthless Santiago 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.
This was pretty good, better than I had feared it would be.
In the games, one of the sayings (and even part of the title of the second game) that Nathan and Sully live by is ‘There’s no honor amongst thieves’ and in this movie we get to see the same backstabbing between every party involved in the search for the lost gold.
A completely new and original story with winks to the original games, such as the plane scene (taken from the third game, Drake’s Deception), the brother Sam and the orphanage they grew up in (A Thief’s End) and many more…
As a fan of the games I was afraid they would butcher them in order to make this movie but Fleischer stayed pretty true to the games (he did change a few elements and I’m still not sure Wahlberg was the best cast for Sully) but seeing Holland in the role of Drake was actually better than expected!
I know there’s gonna be people nagging about the differences but look at it this way… this is a great adventure movie with a funny and hot protagonist! Enjoy this movie for what it is: fun!
