Basically a Lara Croft montage interspersed with flashbacks and daddy/daughter bonding
I’m not entirely sure what happened in this film. I’ve played most of the games and watched the other films so I kind of assumed it would be mediocre at best. I wasn’t largely disappointed..
I’m not bothering searching up names of actors. She’s suitably similar to the original games and a good replacement for Angelina Jolie.
Yeah lots of those.
You could probably fill the plot in yourself. She starts off with some silliness on a bike in London or something. Getting chased through the town by other courier workers in a staged fox hunt (I don’t know why). Then she’s doing some business with her dad dying then visits a vault or memorial or whatever. After finding a key in a riddle.
Finds out stuff about her dad (one of those “if you find this video then it means I’ve died”) massive yawn.
Before you know it she gets thrown from a boat and ends up on the wing of a rusty plane. Not sure about the bits inbetween. I believe this bit is from the game. The scene looks very similar cgi wise. Boat goes over a waterfall or something.
Some guy who, could be any evil generic guy running a captive work camp in a desert, finds her. Gets something from her bag (did I mention the bag?) and uses it to find some secret tomb or something.
Meets her dad. Can’t remember how.
I think she escaped from the camp? I was really shutting down inside by this point. Plus I went to the toilet.
She ends up opening the main tomb where the evil guy wants something from. Some bad acting and tomb like puzzles. Copying the game I think.
Near the end (thank God..)
The tomb has a secret of some nasty virus. Anyway I was very bored by now. My popcorn and drink nearly finished I had no distractions.
Suitably predictable ending of a promise of a follow up.
3/10. Please don’t bother. Wait for the blu ray to come out so you can ignore that instead.
