Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: [Vikander] invests herself in Lara Croft, and the filmmakers, unlike the ones Jolie got saddled with, frame her with awe rather than lust. Now if only they could bring some of that awe to the tombs...
Fresh: "Tomb Raider," stuffed though it is with curses, vaults, and locks that cry out for secret keys, is not really about a legendary quest, or family honor. It's about Alicia Vikander.
Rotten: The greatest distinction of "Tomb Raider" may be its trombones. In an unseen orchestra that bleats and blares, an urgent trombone chorus heralds every leap into banality.
Fresh: I longed for [Daniel] Wu to return to the screen whenever he left it.
Best video game adaptation ever!
Really well made
Yes, this movie is like playing a video game, but without the hassle of pushing all the buttons. I could feel the difference between a cut scene versus a level. But sometimes it’s fun to watch someone else play a video game.
I also appreciated how much more real this feels than a lot of action films. This is not Lara Croft, experienced adventurer. She is young and getting by on her wits more often than she is kicking butt. She gets hurt, she fights through it, and then she kicks butt. Highly enjoyable.
