Jolie's screen presence is so magnetic, and the aesthetics of the film is so true to the games that it is almost impossible not to get carried away by it. [Full review in Spanish]

Lara Croft: Tomb Raider is incredibly silly. So silly in fact, that you just have to respect it.

Some great action sequences, but not much else.

[A] movie based on a video game that's unafraid to look absurd but lacks the self-conviction needed to come off as camp.

So inferior as art and entertainment.

How do you have a pitch perfect actress play the role and then offer no rewards for fans that have been waiting for this for years?

Even by video-game-movie standards, this is an arrogantly, almost smugly empty and incoherent mess.

All the world can blow up around Lara Croft--and it does here--but who cares when there's no reason to fear for her life?

It might be easier to list the things that were good about Tomb Raider, but little comes to mind.

Displaying boobs, brawn, and brain (in that order), Angelina Jolie renders a splashy perfromance but the movie, which is like a video-game turned big-screen entertainment, is not good; another missed opportunity to have a femme-driven action-adventure

A jerky, fragmented tale that jumps from one exotic location to the next without any explanation or flow.

Worth watching.

This would have been a better action movie if the last 10 minutes were replaced. Any computer-game player knows the last battle is supposed to be the toughest.

Let's face it, people going to see this movie expect two things: Lots of action and lots of slo-mo shots of Jolie running.

You never get any explanation of who these people are or why they do what they do.

Jolie kept her side of the deal, everyone else owes her big time.

Like her gaming counterpart, she's all pretty eye candy without much of a soul or even an interesting personality.

Ultimately, the film is set piece after set piece after set piece.... literally. One set at a time, one scene at a time.
Matthew Turner

Video-game based action-adventure blockbuster that just about delivers in terms of its casting and action sequences, but falls on its face when it comes to script, plot, character and dialogue.

I feel sorry for Jolie and the myriad of stunt trainers and set builders who designed all this great stuff, only to have the likes of director Simon West come in and mess it all up.
