Synopsis

Lara Croft (Alicia Vikander) works as a bicycle courier on the streets of London, while keeping herself physically fit at a boxing gym. Although she struggles to pay her gym fees, Lara is actually incredibly wealthy. However, because her father, Lord Richard Croft (Dominic West), has gone missing on a quest, she doesn't want to sign the papers that would declare him legally dead, even though it would gain her access to a lot of money. 

When she's pushed to sign the papers to his global empire, Lara discovers a clue in a puzzle and sets off to find her father on the dangerous island where he disappeared. With the help of Lu Ren (Daniel Wu), whose father also went missing seven years earlier, Lara travels to the island, located just off the coast of Japan, which holds the ancient tomb of Queen Himiko.

  • 5 stars "Excellent! Cast and crew are very effective, and the verisimilitude of the story is entrancing. Dislikes draw to the unbiological speed of the 'infection symptoms', and a few too many boulders rolling down mountains on a small island off of Japan. But the producers produced a winner here."
  • 5 stars "Alicia is great as Lara Croft! For fans of the series, and even video games in general, Tomb Raider, led by the the energetic if slightly mopey Lara Croft (Alicia Vikander), borrows heavily from the rebooted video games by Square Enix, focusing on a young, pre-archaeologist relic hunter who is a little cocksure about her life, unsure of the future, but determined to meet it straight on.Instead of focusing on the professional skills of a master fighter and acrobat, as did the original Angelina Jolie-led Tomb Raider duology, the movie spends quite some time establishing Lara's obvious flaws. Her diminutive size means she is no good in a straight-up brawl, while she openly makes mistakes that can cost her her life."
  • 5 stars "I liked this Lara Croft much better than the one in the last tomb raider movie that I saw about 20 years ago (?). Alicia Vikander is physically fit so we audience are convinced that she is a real Lara Croft not like Angelina Jolie who was a joke."
