This re-booted version of Tomb Raider does not have the “WOW” factor that was present when Angelina Jolie starred in this adventure back in 2001.
Lara Croft (Alicia Vikander) must come to terms with the loss of her father. He has been missing for the past seven years. He is believed to be dead, but Lara won’t give up. Although Lara Croft is an heiress, she lives like a pauper, working as a bike courier, barely able to make ends meet.
After a meeting with the Croft legal-council, Lara discovers some cryptic messages inside a puzzle chamber. This leads to her father’s crypt where she finds a video recording of her father. The messages and the video lead Lara to follow what she believes is a lead to where her father may have last been. The wild adventures starts from there…
There is plenty of action, special effects and intrigue, but not enough entertainment to keep you on the edge of your seat. The story lacks foundation.
If you are a fan of the video game, you would be better suited playing the game or even watching the installments that were done by Angelina Jolie.
This is a 2 Star Movie!!
