Directed by Roar Uthaug, “Tomb Raider” follows the adventures of Lara Croft when she finds herself in a mysterious island where her father disappeared.
“Vikander is a beautifully effective avatar for the American Ninja Warrior version of Lara Croft. Stripping down the bombast of the original games (and films) allows Uthaug’s reboot to feel comparatively grounded and immediate, without dragging itself down with unnecessary pathos.” Consequence Of Sound
“Tomb Raider” is like any other commercial film, very typical of a “Tomb Raider” film but the story is actually good and has an unexpected turn of events.
I actually was pleasantly surprised by this version, I think Alicia Vikander pulls off really well Lara Croft [I was afraid she wouldn’t] and Daniel Wu and her have a good chemistry, I enjoyed seeing them together [SPOILER: and I am happy the movie didn’t end with a kiss]. Moreover, the action sequence is on point, predictable, yes but good and some scenes really kept me at the edge of my seat.
“Tomb Raider” is highly entertaining and enjoyable but it stops at this. I don’t think this movie brings anything new to the “Tomb Raider” saga or that Vikander brings anything new to the character of Lara Croft. It’s just a good action film with a good story and a good actress. That’s it.
To conclude, “Tomb Raider” is a fun movie and I definitely recommend it if you’re looking for an adventurous/action movie. I rate it a 3/5 because I really enjoyed it.
4/5: Very Good
1/5: VERY bad!

The trailer looks cool. Whoever the girl is has attitude.
Never seen the others. Definitely want to see this.
Saw Red Sparrow last week btw… agree with your 7/10. Wasn’t bad. Not memorable.
Yes she is a badass!! Thanks a lot for reading!! and yeah Red Sparrow is not memorable :/
Not that familiar with Lara Croft. Indiana Jones was the bad ass treasure hunter I grew up with. I certainly liked him getting X Files on us. Going to a gaming convention over Easter. Will get to see who is busy around town in related areas, if any.
Watching the last Bladerunner film again now. Am a big Ryan Gosling fan. I didn’t even realize it was him when I saw it at the cinema. I was very ensconced in the story.
The new Star Wars film about Han Solo must be out soon?
A shame it didn’t bring anything new from what you’re saying. What did you think of the original ones?
Story wise not the best but i loved Angelina Jolie as Lara Croft!! Thanks for reading xx
I never saw any of the Lara Croft movies when Angelina Jolie was in the role because I don’t like her lol, but I’m dying to see this one! LOVE Alicia Vikander. I don’t expect any life-changing plots from typical action movies like this, but she looks so badass! Also nice to see some diversity – you don’t often see an Asian male lead in blockbusters.
Very true haha!! Yes she is badass, def go watch it!! Thanks a lot for reading 😍💕
Alicia Vikander looks well suited to the role. I have watched the film recently and agree with your rating. One thing that annoyed me was the amount of times Lara is hanging onto something- branches, aeroplane, ladder…
Hahahahhaha yes totally agree!! Thanks a lot for reading ☺️
Great review. I like that they are short but really summarise what I’m thinking. Well said.
Thanks a lot ☺️❤️
Loved the review! Was really looking forward to this movie
Thanks a lot ☺️💕
I’m so excited to watch this movie especially after I loved the game, hope it doesn’t disappoint me as the game was awesome!xx
it’s a really fun movie so you will enjoy it!!
