Reminds me much of the game.
i apologize for contributing to its success
Ms. Vikander has leapt into the void of a franchise reboot, based on a video-game reboot, that generates no joy, makes negligible sense, and seals its own tomb with a climax of perfect absurdity.
An obligatory setup for a sequel slows down the final moments, but until then, Tomb Raider feels like a perfectly paced trio of espresso shots, with a shot of adrenaline to the heart as a chaser.
Norway’s Roar Uthaug (The Wave) directs it straight up, without even a twist of humour, bouncing Vikander from set piece to set piece with no real attempt at coherent plotting in-between. Yet Vikander is so watchable as the video-game-made-flesh, and the low-fi chase sequences can be so exciting, it’s almost enough. Almost.

Movie Info & Cast
Tomb Raider reboots the thrilling video game & film franchise for a new era. An era in which Lara Croft is a… bike courier?! Don’t worry, she’s still the strong, smart, and independent adventurer you know and love, but heroes have to start somewhere. When Lara discovers a message from her missing father, she follows the clues and sets off on a dangerous journey to investigate his whereabouts. It turns out that Richard Croft was researching a mythical Queen who was said to have mysterious powers – and her very own tomb.
You just know that thing is gonna get raided, right?
Alicia Vikander takes over as the iconic Lara Croft, while Dominic West plays her father Richard. Tomb Raider also stars Walton Goggins, Daniel Wu, Kristin Scott Thomas, and Derek Jacobi.

- The film's plot is loosely based on the 2013 reboot of the video game series, Tomb Raider (2013). It also shares some minor elements of Crystal Dynamics' rebooted video game sequel, Rise of the Tomb Raider (2015).
- After finding her father's secret office, Lara finds a Camcorder that has a post-it note on it saying 'Play me'. She plays the video but the Camcorder has a rechargeable battery which amazingly still has power after 11 years of non use. Likewise the Cassette Recorder which she takes out of a box and switches on and listens to the tape, again with batteries that have not lost power after 11 years.
