Film critics weren’t overly impressed with Uncharted, but moviegoers liked it. Concerning Rotten Tomatoes, the film has a critical rating of only 39%, but it is a recognized hit among viewers: 90% of viewers recommend it. It’s a much-similar story on Google, where it currently has a 4.2/5 rating, while on IMDB it has a less-than-stellar but still respectable user rating of 6.7/10.
Of course, it’s always been difficult to turn Uncharted games inspired by adventure films like Indiana Jones into something that critics will love. Of course, Sony Pictures won’t be too worried: the film exceeds expectations and looks set to reach an impressive cinematic run. Amid North American blockbuster ticket sales, Forbes reported that this may have ended the curse of video games – though of course Sonic the Movie has a lot to say about it.
Still, it’s an encouraging start for PlayStation Productions, which is also bringing Ghost of Tsushima to the big screen and betting big on an HBO collaboration on The Last of Us.
