Directed by Ruben Fleischer
Starring Tom Holland, Mark Wahlberg, Antonio Banderas
There are few films based on video games that have worked on the film. So, I think everyone was a bit skeptical about this one thinking if it was going to be faithful to the game. I have never played the game so I did not have to worry about that and just see if it was entertaining.
The story follows Drake as he meets Sully and both go on an adventure looking for gold. Others are interested so it’s a race of who finds it first.
I have to say I was surprised by the film. I had a lot of fun watching the film. It had a lot of cool action sequences and great visuals. The characters were likable and funny and unpredictable. I thought it had a good pace and a good story. It felt like a new version of Indiana Jones. The investigating aspect of the story was interesting and done in a way that was not dull. At least for me it was an entertaining movie.
Tom Holland continues to prove that he is a star. He can command the screen and charm the audience. Mark Wahlberg’s performance felt like other movies he has done, but he worked well with Holland and that worked great for the film. Antonio Banderas shines as the villain.
I can recommend this film for those who want to see a fun movie and have a good time in the theater.
