This is a movie that got universally bad reviews. It helped knowing that going in because my expectations were very low. Being a fan of Angelina Jolie, I was not disappointed in her performance. Despite a thin plot and cheesy effects, Angelina delivered her lines with class and finesse. Unfortunately even her talent cannot overide an overall lack of plot and unbelievable situations. The film grew tiresome very quickly.

On a Jungian level this film portrays a strange sterility. The first scene is Lara upside down, in the middle of a training exercise set by her computer nerd flunkie and her all-purpose butler. This opening segment defined the problem for the film--someone who is not grounded and unconscious. Lara raids tombs and fights bad guys to no real purpose--except perhaps to pit her skills against someone else. This cycle repeats endlessly, as do video games, which create a feeling of accomplishment where there is none, sterile endeavors with no learning and no personal or interpersonal gain. The individual does not develop--just the skills. Lara steals the ancient wealth of civilizations from tombs, co-opting heritage and treasure for the love of the game. This disregard for cultural artifacts except as an exercise is indicative of lack of depth and insight.

In one moment in the movie, there is a clear symbol of the futility of this lifestyle--Lara puts everything aside to retrieve a memento of her dead father. But then she reverts to form. In addition there is no mention of her mother--what happened to her and why is this not a loss? Obviously this is such a deficit it cannot be referred to except obliquely by one scene where an enormous statue of a woman is destroyed, and by the total lack of other women in the film.

Overall a troubling nightmare of forsaken femininity.

1.0 out of 5 stars Horrible Overhyped Garbage June 11 2004
Format:DVD
I'm glad women are finally starting to get more into action type films, but this Tomb Raider I was told was gonnah be the best female action star since Sigorney Weaver in Aliens.
Oh, how I disagree with that on so many levels.
Has this movie been praised because it stars a woman in skin tight clothing? Baring next to nothing? all while flying around, doing action seaqences, and over the top stuff like that?
Because thats what I think has given this movie any appeal at all! I cannot stand Angelina Jolie, but putting that aside to actualy focus on the fact that she is portraying a rip-off of Indiana Jones, and wearing , well, what some people would consider sexy attire/cloths... but to me, sex doesnt sell a movie. If you havent got a good movie, then dont expect showing some skin will make it any better!
The movie is terrible, Angelinas performance is sickiing, not only the cloths she wears to gain that attention of that kind of audience, but her acting both inhales and exhales (work it out, Amazon will filter my exact words for that)
If your a guy who want to see a chick put on some sexy clothing to get your attention to try and distract you from a pointless ,un thought out scene with special FX from tiem to time, then you will love this movie!
If you can actualy stand Angeliana Joalines conseeded acting, then you might like it.
But if your like me, and see through the B.S of trying to get a sexy image to sell, then youll see how this movie fails to bring a decent woman onto the screen for an action role!
I hope some actress becomes a super action star sometime soon, one maybe so even bigger then any male action star, but Angelina is not the one to look out for. Sex does not sell in my book!

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyed Parts of it April 14 2004
Format:DVD
Lara Croft Tomb Raider really is a movie that is doomed by the critics the day the making of it is announced. It's based off a video game where the heroine is mostly known because of her large (...).She is suppose to be a combination of Indiana Jones and James Bond which is also going to be hard to pull off. We know the stunts will be outrageous along with a lot of other things. If you look past all that you really can enjoy Tomb Raider.
Lara Croft Tomb Raider is a simple enough plot. Lara(Angelina Jolie)must find the Triangle of Time. It's a legendary artifact that is capable of altering time and space as we know it. She must find the artifact before the evil secret society of the Illuminati do. The society is led by Manfred Powell(Iain Glen)who is set on using the artifact for his own eveil purposes. It's now up to Lara to stop the Illuminati and Manfred before it is to late.
Angelina Jolie really is the reason to watch the film. She looks fantastic in the movie and it's probaly the best she has ever looked. She plays the video game heroine to perfection and nobody could have pulled it off quite like she did. She did all her own stunts in the film and even learned how to fire weapons and train for the part from a former SAS agent.
The only knock I have against the film is the traveling the movie. In a span of not even three days Lara goes from England to Cambodia back to England and then to someplace in North Western Russia. Thats a little far stretched even for a video game based character.
This really is a three star movie but the DVD extras bump it up to a four. There are deleted scenes and an altered main title sequence. You get the specials on how they crafted Angelina Jolie into Lara Croft. There is a special on the visual effects in the movie which are decent.

1.0 out of 5 stars How boring was that!!!
Maybe it's because I never payed the game. But it took me three sessions to finish this movie. Daniel Craig was pretty good.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good action but nothing to be remembered.
Tomb Raider is good fun and good for a rental. The Movie itself will eventually be forgotten. Angelina Jolie does good, and the plot it okay. Read more

Hey, what the heck! This is a movie adaptation of a video game, for pete's sake. What do you expect? This movie is flashy, fun, wildly ridiculous, campy, and adventurous. Read more
