Lara Croft - Tomb Raider Reviews
Despite the disastrous reputation that films based on video games have recieved over the years, Simon West's film adaptation of Core Design's Tomb Raider games was successful enough to get it's own sequel and is still currently one of the most financally successful video-game films of all time as like the first Pokemon film, it was released at the height of Lara Croft's popularity in the late 90's-early 2000's.
Angelina Jolie is perfectly cast as Lara, capturing both her badass and sexier moments with ease and it's amusing to see Daniel Craig basically setting himself up for his future 007 role. The rest of the cast, apart from Chris Barrie's charming butler character are mostly pretty bland and boring.
Overall Lara Croft: Tomb Raider is an enjoyable popcorn action flick, even in it's muddled state and the curse of video-game films hanging around it's neck.
Despite some extremely dated CGI and awful editing, this is overall, one of the better video game films out there.
Lara Croft - Tomb Raider was a memorable thrillride that was wise enough not to pretend it was more than what it was.
But Angelina Jolie Style Along Some Cool Set-Pieces And Action Scenes Made "Lara Croft: Tomb Raider" my All Time Guilty Pleasure. Because At The End, Did I Care About All This Mistakes? No.
