What Is Uncharted About?
Uncharted is based on Naughty Dog’s wildly renowned video game series and features treasure hunter Nathan “Nate” Drake as he travels across the world solving historical mysteries. Drake, played by Spider-Man actor Tom Holland, teams up with Mark Wahlberg’s Victor “Sully” Sullivan in the film. Sullivan, an older explorer and Drake’s tutor, leads the young man on an adventure in which they face a wealthy, cruel treasure hunter and his mercenaries in their pursuit of a lost fortune.
Uncharted Plot Explained
Orphaned brothers Sam and Nathan Drake are apprehended attempting to steal a map drawn after the Magellan voyage from a Boston museum. After their orphanage pushes him out for his third strike, Sam sneaks out to be on his own but swears Nate he’ll return and gives him a ring belonging to their ancestor Sir Francis Drake.
Nate works as a bartender in New York and steals from wealthy customers fifteen years later. Victor Sullivan, a fortune hunter who worked with Sam to find wealth concealed by the Magellan crew, tells Nate that Sam vanished after assisting him in stealing Juan Sebastian Elcano’s diaries. Nate, who has stopped receiving postcards from Sam, offers to assist Sully in finding him.
Sully and Nate head to an auction to steal a golden cross-tied to the Magellan crew, where they meet Santiago Moncada, the only descendant of the Moncada dynasty, and Jo Braddock, the leader of Moncada’s mercenaries. Braddock’s men ambush Nate, and the ensuing fight distracts Sully from stealing the cross.
The two proceed to Barcelona, where the treasure is said to be concealed, and meet up with Sully’s acquaintance Chloe Frazer, who has another cross. Meanwhile, after discovering from his father that their family fortune will be given, Moncada orders Braddock to assassinate his father so that he will inherit the money instead. Nate, Chloe, and Sully pursue clues in Elcano’s notebook to Santa Maria del Pi, where they discover an underground crypt under the altar.
Nate and Chloe enter and find a trap door, but the tomb fills with water when they open it. Sully assists them in escaping after subduing Braddock’s ambush. Nate and Chloe discover a map showing the wealth in the Philippines after using the two crosses to unlock a secret route. Chloe doublecrosses Nate and leaves to take the map to Moncada, implying Sully is keeping a secret regarding Sam.
