IN CINEMAS NOW

SYNOPSIS:

Lara Croft is the fiercely independent daughter of an eccentric adventurer who vanished when she was scarcely a teen. Now a young woman of 21 without any real focus or purpose, Lara navigates the chaotic streets of trendy East London as a bike courier, barely making the rent. Determined to forge her own path, she refuses to take the reins of her father’s global empire just as staunchly as she rejects the idea that he’s truly gone. Advised to face the facts and move forward after seven years without him, even Lara can’t understand what drives her to finally solve the puzzle of his mysterious death.

REVIEW:

Nerida

Finally a video game movie that breaks the video game movie curse. It is so much fun & exciting as well as crafted beautifully. Overall, a solid story with great action and some surprises I wasn’t expecting. Alicia Vikander crushed it as Lara Croft

Vikander is the new queen of action films! I was so impressed by her performance throughout the course of this film.The entire cast was solid. The film definitely has an Indiana Jones vibe which I think is epic! I spotted some nods to the original games.

The film is very well grounded and gritty. The action sequences and visuals are stunning. Definitely brought the 2013 version of Tomb Raider to life with a bang. Vikander’s Lara Croft is a hero that is flawed yet keeps pushing forward and you see that in Vikander’s performance.

While Warcraft and Assassin’s Creed stumbled, Tomb Raider rises above the pack with superb storytelling, great action and impressive performances.

Some of plot elements are predictable and cliche as is the case in many action films but there’s plenty of twists and excitement along with the stellar cast performance and action sequences to make this a must see if action films are your thing!
