Tomb Raider is a pretty safe video game movie that simply doesn't take any risks.

Tomb Raider delivers as a fantasy adventure actioner.

Vikander can't save a mediocre action movie.
December 26, 2018
Tomb Raider should be fun. Instead, it is two minutes shy of a two-hour long eye roll, filled with shoddy effects, a Lifetime-esque story line about dads, and a sprinkling of cheesy zingers.

Vikander is terrific as Lara, but this uninspired origin story swiftly wears thin and settles itself into a long loop of repetition.

Another ancient tomb, another tomb door puzzle to solve with feats of lateral thinking apparently only available to modern western explorers of high morals. "Tomb Raider" is derivative and daft but Vikander's Lara is a realistically uneven heroine.

The film was good, not great; there isn't too much that is going to be memorable in the long-term, even if it is a fun watch, at least once.
December 7, 2018
Tomb Raider manages to be simultaneously predictable and suspenseful, making it exactly what a B-level action film should be.

Overall, TOMB RAIDER is mediocre effort, but it does show that Vikander can deliver the goods if the direction and script can give her enough support.
November 24, 2018
A disappointing plot and a familiar third act prevent this remake from reaching its full potential.

I admit, I expected little going in but on the way out, I found myself actually looking forward to the franchise possibilities.
November 12, 2018
I left feeling underwhelmed. Tomb Raider was a letdown.
November 5, 2018
It's (Alicia) Vikander's performance alone that makes Tomb Raider unquestionably the greatest film adaptation of a video game and merits a worthwhile sequel.

Like a bowl of frozen soup - takes much too long to heat up.

Selling only that aforementioned "iconic" action-figure version of [Lara] is what the poster is supposed to do; not the first movie in what is blatantly aiming to become a name-above-the-title franchise for Vikander to bank on between prestige-projects.

Like Lara herself, there is a tremendous amount of potential here that is never fully realized. Maybe the next tomb will be a bit deeper.
October 30, 2018
Don't get me wrong, Tomb Raider isn't great but it knows what it is and plays to its strengths more often than not.
October 28, 2018
Vikander is fine with what she is given to work with -- basically running and jumping in slow motion -- but the script lacks a sense of humor that an action franchise like this sorely needs.
October 28, 2018
While the film finds itself amongst the better video game adaptations we've been served up, the bar on this genre is so low, that's not really saying much.

As far as Hollywood [movies] go, this one earns bonus points for being so eager to celebrate a woman without sexualizing her or adorning her with a love interest accessory.
