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.

Did You Know?
- The film's plot is based on the 2013 reboot of the video game series.
- 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.
