Is Uncharted Kid Friendly? Parents Guide

Wondering if Uncharted is ok for kids? Rated PG-13 for language and violence, Uncharted is not kid friendly for all ages. However, with Tom Holland’s popularity right now after Spider-Man: No Way Home, many tweens and teens will want to watch this video game adaptation that is a bit meh. Here’s what parents need to know in this Uncharted Parents Guide.

Parents Guide to Uncharted 2022

Street-smart and smart-a** thief Nathan Drake (Tom Holland) is recruited by seasoned treasure hunter Victor “Sully” Sullivan (Mark Wahlberg) to recover a fortune lost by Ferdinand Magellan 500 years ago. It starts as a heist job, but then becomes a race to reach the lucrative prize and treasure before the ruthless Santiago Moncada (Antonio Banderas) gets to it. Moncada believes his family are the rightful heirs.

Why is Uncharted Rated PG-13?

Uncharted is rated PG-13 for violence/action and language which means some material may not be suitable for children.


There is quite a bit of profanity and language in Uncharted including at least 20-ish uses of sh*t, 3 uses of a**, bit*h, and damn, bastard, and words of Deity.

Mature Content

Violence is PG-13 level in Uncharted with a lot of fighting and uses of weapons like guns, swords, and knives. A man’s throat is slit and you can see some blood.

Some characters drink alcohol and smoke. 

There is no real sexual content but you do see a male character shirtless and a female in a bikini top.

Is Uncharted Appropriate For Kids Under 13?

Uncharted is an action-adventure that may have too much action for younger kids. There’s nothing super over the top,  so tweens and teens can watch it as long as parents are ok with the violence and profanity. Uncharted is entertaining enough, but there’s nothing new here. 

Is Uncharted too scary for kids? There are some jump scenes and threatening situations, but it should be fine for most kids over 10. 

Uncharted is based on the PlayStation video game, but instead of having an original script for the film, it felt like a knockoff of several movies. I got Indiana Jones, Goonies, Pirates of the Caribbean, and National Treasure vibes, but all those movies were way better, so I’m not sure what will draw people to the theater besides Tom Holland and boredom. 

Is it fun-ish? Sure. There’s plenty of fan service and enough to keep people entertained. I would have liked more backstory and character development. If you’re a Tom Holland fan, then you may be satisfied, but even all his and Mark Wahlberg’s star power couldn’t save the film for me.
