New Tomb Raider Info Coming Tomorrow, May Have Already Leaked

And that's where Tomb Raider comes up empty. And even though the sequel-baiting is there and the classic hero's journey is fulfilled in familiar ways, Uthaug's film is a lot of fun.

Soon after, Lara heads off to more exotic locations in search of her missing father. But Dad left Lara some puzzles to figure out, and she discovers his longtime mission: to find the mysterious tomb of a Japanese sorceress queen on an uncharted island before its mythical contents fall into the wrong hands. The early reception pretty much makes it clear that she achieved her goal. Mathias Vogel (Walton Goggins) is just the sort of cackling cartoon villain who might unleash a supernatural plague on the world - especially considering all the help he has from his army of thuggish machine-gun-wielding mercenaries.

"Tomb Raider" manages to transcend these hurdles by tapping into what made the game so unique. Unfortunately, it's the pacing that doesn't quite work here, with most of the sequences dragging on too long while devoid of any real drama.

Also, no one needs a perfunctory father-daughter relationship in a movie that should have ideally been a rip-roaring adventure. But also, the part of picking up choreography.

Tomb Raider review by Ben Read, March 2018. Daniel Wu (Geostorm) as Lara's unlikely traveling companion Lu Ren presents opportunity for intrigue, until he's pushed aside halfway through the movie.

Here, the wonderful Alicia Vikander takes on the Lara Croft mantle, and - typically - gives everything to the role. She credits her background in ballet as one of the things that helped her through it. Two of the films most emotional scenes, including the harrowing moment Lara takes her first life, are all-too-quickly forgotten in favour of loud, bone-crunching spectacle. It's also that she's so prone to make bad decisions or throw out any semblance of common sense. I'd love to see more action moms in games.


Beyond that, her character feels nearly joyless.

Yes, the archaeological adventurer once kicked butt through two big-budget Angelina Jolie flicks.

The actress previously stated that she intends to set herself apart from the Lara Croft portrayal of both the games and movies. In a ideal world, we'd get a "Tomb" map editor. Despite how Lara Croft is inconsistently presented, Alicia Vikander runs with this role like a champ. Lara wears trousers now and no longer has the physique of a Barbie doll (even the voluptuous Jolie used padding to play her).

How are you feeling about Shadow of the Tomb Raider?

Square Enix's upcoming announcement is fitting, considering that the new "Tomb Raider" flick is about to release in USA theatres on March 16 (March 15 in Australia). This movie review is based on an advanced screening provided by Square Enix and Warner Bros.
