    Uncharted

    ★★½

    I've never played the Uncharted video game, so I went into this film as someone just looking for a good adventure movie. As someone with no loyalty to the video game this is based off of, the film didn't work for me.

    The film just ultimately gets too ridiculous and over-the-top. That would be acceptable if the film were exciting enough to compensate for those issues, but it doesn't deliver nearly enough successful thrills to make up for its numerous…

    For the first 40 minutes, I was having an absolutely amazing blast with this film. It was delivering on virtually every single level, with a constant barrage of near non-stop laughs and gruesome action. From the opening beach battle all the way to the Suicide Squad's extermination of an enemy camp which ends with a hilarious punchline, this film was firing on almost every cylinder.

    Well, it couldn't keep the momentum going. Once the film actually slows down after the…
