Whoo, boy. Uncharted has released another trailer, and I’ve seen very mixed reviews.
So, if you didn’t know, Sony dropped a second Uncharted trailer. Maybe you should watch it before continuing.
If you have watched it, you can see some new clips in it are mixed with some old ones. It seems like they’re trying to bring in new audiences while also having references for longtime fans. For example, there’s the plane scene from Uncharted 3, but then they have helicopters lifting pirate ships. They also reveal Sully’s new, but also old, mustache at the end of the trailer.
Now, as I said before, there are a lot of mixed views. Some people admire that Sony is listening to the fans, even though some think it’s only a post-credit scene. They brought back Sully’s stache, they showed a puzzle or two, and they got some reminiscent action scenes like the game. However, there are always two sides to the coin.
On the negative side, people still talk about the casting, but others have a few good criticisms. One that I agree with is that it feels like some other treasure-hunting movies. I don’t get the sense that it’s an Uncharted movie. Yes, Nathan Fillion would definitely help with that, but I honestly don’t know how they can make it feel like the game anymore.
Another criticism is that the trailer pretty much showed most parts of the movie, and I can kind of see that, but at the same time, I don’t. Whenever I watch a trailer, even if there’s a lot to it, I never know the order of events. There could be twists and turns to how the characters end up where they are, so I try not to fully judge by the trailer.
However, we just have to wait to see how it goes. Uncharted will be released in February 2022, so it has a little less than two months.
