About Uncharted (2022)
Street-smart Nathan Drake (Tom Holland) is recruited by seasoned treasure hunter Victor “Sully” Sullivan (Mark Wahlberg) to recover a fortune amassed by Ferdinand Magellan and lost 500 years ago by the House of Moncada.
What starts as a heist job for the duo becomes a globe-trotting, white-knuckle race to reach the prize before the ruthless Santiago Moncada (Antonio Banderas), who believes he and his family are the rightful heirs.
If Nate and Sully can decipher the clues and solve one of the world’s oldest mysteries, they stand to find $5 billion in treasure and perhaps even Nate’s long-lost brother…but only if they can learn to work together.

Is Uncharted Ok For Kids? Parents Guide and Review
Tom Holland is arguably the biggest or one of the biggest stars on the planet right now.
If your kids watched Spider-Man: No Way Home, they are likely big fans and hoping to see his newest movie.
Is The Uncharted Movie Ok For Kids? In this parents guide and review, we’re breaking down the language, sex/nudity, and violence that happens in the movie to help you determine if watching Uncharted is safe for kids in your home.
Is Uncharted Ok For Kids? Sex and Nudity
We’ll start with the easy one: is there sex and nudity in Uncharted?
Nate, the main character, is seen a couple of times with his shirt off.
But other than that: there is no sex or nudity in the movie. There isn’t even a romance storyline in this one.
Two characters share a hotel room and are each seen in the same bed, but not at the same time. And the movie never suggests that they have hooked up or had sex- but you can deduce that they slept in the same bed.
Yes: people can share a bed just to sleep!
Uncharted is incredibly tame and safe for kids when it comes to sex or nudity and we feel Uncharted is ok for kids in this aspect.
Violence and Gore In The Uncharted Movie
For an action-adventure movie that is also rated PG-13, Uncharted has typical action violence but not very much blood or gore.
Hand-to-hand combat, chase scenes, weapons like swords, knives, and guns are all used during the movie. There are a lot of scenes where the characters are in great peril, especially at great heights.
People do die in the movie by being shot, falling from heights, knives, and explosions. But much of the actual death is implied and not shown on screen, which we found to be moderately kid-friendly.
There’s one scene where a death occurs in front of us that also shows a small amount of blood. For the record, the amount of blood is very little compared to what would actually happen in a real-life situation, so we’ll take that as a win here.
You do see a dead body at this moment.
We were pleasantly surprised that for the rating of the Uncharted movie at PG-13 that there wasn’t more onscreen death and destruction.
Is Uncharted Movie Scary?
We’d say it’s along the lines of an Indiana Jones meets Pirates of the Caribbean with a little Goonies and Cocktail added in.
If your child can handle a few mild jump scares ala Indy, then they should not find Uncharted to be scary for them.
Language: Uncharted Parents Guide
When it comes to this parents’ guide for Uncharted, it might feel fairly safe and tame.
And truthfully, it is for the most part.
With sex and nudity being taken off the table and the gore and blood almost completely non-existent, why is Uncharted rated PG-13?
The language in Uncharted may be concerning for some families.
The good news is that the swears used were of the more mild types: @ss, d@mn, sh!t, son of a b!tch, and h@ll were all heard. The bad news is: they use these swears A LOT.
Other concerning language includes words like sucks and p!ss off, plus multiple uses of a diety as an exclamation with OMG-d, J@sus, and Holy Sh!t used frequently.
Nate grew up in a Catholic orphanage and has some thoughts about the nuns who raised him. There is a running joke about how “scary” nuns are, which may or may not be an issue for a Catholic family.
Do you need to know the video game to enjoy the Uncharted movie?
So we think you can go in “cold” so to speak and still have a great time during this one.
We enjoyed the movie and have no connection to the video game ourselves.
In fact, not being huge fans of Uncharted may have helped us enjoy it even more as there were no expectations.
We do suspect, however, that some of the Uncharted easter eggs and jokes were missed since we are not familiar. But even with that, the movie was a lot of fun!
Uncharted Age Rating
The Uncharted movie is rated PG-13 and has an almost 2 hours run time.
If you have teens or tweens, you should feel that Uncharted is safe and kid-friendly for them for the most part.
Can kids 10 and under watch Uncharted? That depends
As always, you know your family best. Is Uncharted movie ok for kids under 10?
If language isn’t a deal-breaker, then this movie could be enjoyed by a younger crowd, possibly even as low as 8 or 9, depending on your previous movie habits.
It’s fairly long, but the action-packed adventure keeps things moving and you truly don’t notice when the time is up!
Are There End-Credit Scenes in Uncharted?
Stick around for not 1 but 2 end-credit scenes in the Uncharted movie.
One occurs right away before the credits start to roll, but there is another one mid-credits.
Both set up the potential for additional movies in this series.
