Default "Unchahted" (2021), Starring Tahm and Mahk

After being halted due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the live-action Uncharted film - starring Tom Holland as Nathan Drake, Mark Wahlberg as Sully and helmed by Ruben Fleischer - has resumed production.

On the one hand, the Uncharted games already were trying really-really hard to be movies, so I don't know if changing the story-telling medium would offer much. Then again, I didn't like the games (the first two at least, didn't bother with the latter two) in the first place, so maybe just sitting back and just watching the action would be more enjoyable experience in this case

Also, I know that game fans really hate how this is going to be a prequel of sort, with a teen Nathan Drake, but Nathan Drake isn't really the most interesting character in the first place and Tom Holland is probably one of the best young actors working, so it's nice to see him getting more high-profile work (and even if this turns out as an another failed video game adaptation, he still has those Marvel movies to keep him as a profitable star).

Could be worse I suppose. But it's weird seeing all these set pieces lifted from the games in what was supposed to be about Drake as a youth...

Man, I know I praised Holland and shared no love for Nathan Drake as a character in my previous post, but he still feels kinda miscast here. I think it's the script going for that "doofus, who thinks he's cooler than he actually is" (think Bruce Campbell in Army of Darkness or Kurt Russell in Big Trouble in Little China) character type, but Holland's stage persona kinda naturally leads more into a plain "doofus with heart of gold" (I hope that comparison makes sense), which works when he is playing Peter Parker, but feels kinda awkward here.

Of course, just a trailer and I can't act like I have any personal stakes in this, since I'm not a fan of the property, but this wasn't the best first impression.
