I just finished playing through the Uncharted trilogy of games for the first time, and it was an awesome ride. The games are all great adventure fun, and although I have a few complaints, overall I had a terrific time. This Uncharted fan film captures that same sense of adventure by recreating the opening scene from the first Uncharted game in a near-perfect fashion.
Here’s the thing, though: they’ve been trying to get an Uncharted movie adaptation off the ground for years now, and watching this mini-adaptation, all I could think was that it seemed extraneous. I’m not dissing this fan film, I’m just saying that the games were so cinematic in and of themselves that they don’t need a movie adaptation. I wonder if one will ever come to fruition.
