Lara Croft Is A Survivor!
Finally a video game movie that is so much fun & exciting as well as crafted beautifully. Overall, a solid story with great action and some surprises I wasn't expecting. Alicia Vikander crushed it as Lara Croft. Alicia Vikander is the new queen of Action films! I was so impressed by her performance throughout the course of this film.The entire cast was solid. The film definitely has an Indiana Jones vibe which I think is epic!! I spotted some nods to the original games. The film is very well grounded and gritty. The action sequences and visuals are stunning. Definitely brought the 2013 version of Tomb Raider to life with a bang. Alicia Vikander's Lara Croft is a hero that is flawed yet keeps pushing forward and you see that in Alicia Vikander's performance. While Warcraft and Assassin's Creed stumbled, Tomb Raider rises above the pack with superb storytelling, great action and impressive performances. Junkie XL did a phenomenal job with Tomb Raider film score. So epic!! Thank you Roar Uthaug for bringing this film to life in spectacular fashion including Walton Goggins, Daniel Wu and Alicia Vikander, Thank You for this amazing film! Proud to be a long time Tomb Raider fan. Go see Tomb Raider! Some of plot elements are predictable and cliche as is the case in many action films but there's plenty of twists and excitement along with the stellar cast performance and action sequences to make this a must see!
BEST. VIDEO. GAME. ADAPTATION. EVER
Tomb Raider was everything I could’ve asked for as a longtime fan of the franchise, it exceeded my expectations. The film had me in all kinds of emotions and I can’t express just how incredible Alicia Vikander is as Lara Croft, her performance brought a whole new realism to the character.
The cast and crew did an amazing job of bringing the 2013 reboot game to life but adding new elements to keep things fresh and exciting. This movie is in desperate need of a sequel so I urge everyone to go see this movie, the critics have got it’ll wrong and I promise you it’s worth every penny. IMAX is the best way to experience it! 🏹
Vikander shines in the titular role.
Lets get one thing straight; Alicia Vikander is excellent in the titular role. She’s arguably perfect. Not only charismatic and charming, but she’s also able to truly act when she needs to. Vikander portrays a character that is the perfect embodiment of female power, and with that, Tomb Raider has a lot of fun on its hands. For the most part it lives up to its name. Action sequences are majestic, with prowess. The story (while cliched) plays well with emotional connection, and Walton Goggins could play the evilest man on earth and he’d still charm me. But with certain awkward character moments, delivered mostly through badly written and performed dialogue in its opening first act, it is still lacking to be the breakout video game film we’ve all waited for, but that being said, it isn’t far off.
