The Synopsis for Tomb Raider (2018) 1080p
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, and takes college courses, rarely making it to class. 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. Going explicitly against his final wishes, she leaves everything she knows behind in search of her dad's last-known destination: a fabled tomb on a mythical island that might be somewhere off the coast of Japan. But her mission will not be an easy one; just reaching the island will be extremely treacherous. Suddenly, the stakes couldn't ...

Watched without any expectations and enjoyed it.
To the surprise of no one, Roar Uthaug's reboot of the Tomb Raider franchise, 17 years on from the initial Angelina Jolie hit, is about as middle of the line as we'd all come to expect, sadly meaning that the wait continues for the first truly great video game adaptation (sorry Resident Evil fans).
To be fair and perhaps to be taken as a positive, Tomb Raider isn't irremediably bad, at times it's actually quite a lot of fun and Alicia Vikander makes for a likeable and believable raider of tombs but the biggest problem with Uthaug's big-budgeted feature film is that it takes itself far too seriously (even more so when you take its daft plotline into account) and it often forgets to have fun along the way, meaning that the films brief flirtations with an action thrill ride are trodden over by more prevalent moments of blandness.
Considering its source material and in particular its basing around the great 2013 video game reboot of the franchise, Tomb Raider could've been something very special, a modern day female-orientated take on Indiana Jones that mixed in the humour, the action and the supernatural with memorable set-pieces and likeable characters but Uthaug's take is far too po-faced to ever come close to achieving this outside of a neat river escape (taken straight from the aforementioned video-game) and some cool looking puzzle set-pieces.
It's a shame that the films greatest set-pieces are so few and far between and it's never a great sign for a film of this ilk when an action set-up involving a bunch of cyclists chasing each other in a game of "Foxhunting" is one of the standout set-pieces and one of the films highlights and its especially unfortunate that Vikander's impressively committed turn as Croft is largely wasted on mediocre material.
Still not a household name, Vikander's great body of work over the last few years is on show here as the Sweden born Oscar winner throws herself headfirst into the Croft role and creates a likeable and fiercely determined action heroine, in the battle between Jolie and Vikander, you'd say Vikander wins hands down.
Her screen presence and physicality elevate Uthaug's film and help make up for the ho-hum support turns of Dominic West and Daniel Wu, while poor old Walton Goggins turn as the films token bad Mathias Vogel is a real waste of the talented performers' skillset and helps add to the ingredients that make Uthaug's film watchable, but so utterly and undeniably bland.
Final Say -
Too serious for its own good and lacking in genuinely memorable action moments, this visually pleasing update on the Tomb Raider franchise isn't a total bust thanks largely to Vikander but it's mostly a squandering of solid source material and another unfortunate entry into the disappointing video game adaptation library, a library that sadly continues to grow by the year.

At first when I found out about the reboot of this iconic video game character movie, I admit that I had my doubts when they cast Alicia Vikander to play Lara Croft. My doubt was due to the her prior experience of mostly having dramatic roles rather than action role. It would really require a great physical attributes in order to play this heroine who was famous for her agility and ability to run and jump through a whole lot of dangerous places like in the video game. But it turned out my doubt was completely unwarranted. Alicia Vikander truly deserves the praise for being a new action star and she was really great in playing this role. There were soo many action sequences that required her to do all those stuff and what surprised and amazed me was the fact that she did all of her stunts.
This movie's main attraction was definitely all those wonderful action sequence. The plot/story line might not have been appealing to the movie critics as I also found it a bit weak. But that was not the point anyway. When we go to see Tomb Raider, the first thing that comes to people's mind would be lots of actions. The final third of the movie did not disappoint at all. Though I personally felt that the first half was not full of those. But whenever there were actions involved, they were always suspenseful and intense (my most favorite part would be when Lara was going through the jungle and waterfall until finally went to the ground).
In here the movie focused on Lara Croft's early days. Which means the movie was more of an origin story of Lara Croft. This was a nice different approach by the film makers. It was also rather a surprise that the movie was not directed by Hollywood's more well known action director. The director was Roar Uthaug, a Norwegian film maker whose prior experience were directing Norwegian films. But I personally think he did wonderful job on the action sequences.
As for other aspects like the sound effects, it was definitely great. The musical effect though not too good to my opinion (sometimes there was too much volume in certain scene which I think was to give more dramatic effect but felt unnecessary to my opinion). The special effects were good, and the CGI was done neatly & nicely. There were also few dramatic moments where my wife was also affected a bit. Oh there was also a brief fun appearance from Nick Frost. The other supporting characters in the movie that stood out was obviously Walter Goggins (as usual truly nailed it as a villain). The rest were OK, but sadly Daniel Wu's character was not really that great in here (not clear on whether he was supposed to be Lara's sidekick or what). The movie did not have middle or post end-credit scene, so you can relief yourself to the restroom if you have been holding off during the almost 2 hours duration of the movie.
Overall, this movie was a nice reboot of Lara Croft. Do not overthink the plot or the sometimes not really logical part like how Lara was so strong & very good in doing all those stunts despite not having the proper training. Go to this movie to be entertained by the amazing action sequence (even if Lara seemed to be always very lucky like what my wife said). If you enjoy this kind of movie or if you are a fan of Tomb Raider games, then I think it would be satisfying. But if you want to see a lot of the tomb raiding scenes like in the previous Tomb Raiders movies, or if you are looking for the Indiana Jones quality, then this might not be too fulfilling.
