Review - Tomb Raider
Let me preface all of this with this.  I've never seen either of the original Tomb Raider movies.  I've also only played a few minutes of a demo version of a PS2 Tomb Raider game.

This either makes me the best or worst person possible to review the new Tomb Raider movie available now from Warner Brothers Home Entertainment.

Not familiar with the world of Tomb Raider?

Here's the synopsis:

Lara Croft is the fiercely independent daughter of an eccentric adventurer who vanished when she was scarcely a teen. Now a young woman of 21 without any real focus or purpose, Lara navigates the chaotic streets of trendy East London as a bike courier, barely making the rent. Determined to forge her own path, she refuses to take the reins of her father’s global empire just as staunchly as she rejects the idea that he’s truly gone. Advised to face the facts and move forward after seven years without him, even Lara can’t understand what drives her to finally solve the puzzle of his mysterious death.


Tomb Raider stars Oscar winner Alicia Vikander (“Ex Machina,” “The Danish Girl”) in the lead role, under the direction of Roar Uthaug (“The Wave”). Oscar winner Graham King (“The Departed”) produced under his GK Films banner. The film also stars Dominic West (“Money Monster,” “300”), Walton Goggins (“The Hateful Eight,” “Django Unchained”), Daniel Wu (TV’s “Into the Badlands”) and Oscar nominee Kristin Scott Thomas (“The English Patient”).

Alicia Vikander is perfectly cast as the heiress turned adventurer.  She brings a sense of gravitas and wonder that seemed to be missing from Angelina Jolie's spandexed performance.



With no preconceived notions, I really enjoyed the movie.  It was a solid origin story wrapped in a fun action movie.

Vikander presents a strong female lead that should become a touchstone for young female viewers.  She does for the bow and arrow what Harrison Ford did for the bullwhip.

Tomb Raider is well worth a look for fans of the franchise, Indiana Jones, Doc Savage or, quite frankly, fans of action movies.

Tomb Raider is avaible now on digital, 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack, 3D Blu-ray Combo Pack, Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD now!
