To call it better than most video game movies isn't saying much, but 2018's "Tomb Raider" is exiting entertainment equipped with the energy and spirit of the franchise its based on.

Dose anyone remember when this came out? Because I didn't until now. 'Tomb Raider' isn't a terrible movie, especially considering it's based on a video game which is usually poison with adaptions. However, film making wise it's pretty bland and looks like a Netflix movie at times. The dialogue is patchy with some laughable line delivery. The visual effects are terrible and painfully noticeable during action scenes. The villains are just whatever - the only thing worth mentioning is their bad facial hair. Honestly, Alicia Vikander is the saving grace, as I thought she was solid as Lara Croft, but shes too good for this movie.

Vikander is stunning as usual but that's all this film can offer. There were a lot of inconsistencies, technical-wise (the lighting, the design, etc.). The action were there but didn't feel like REAL ACTION. More like a Temple Run and the player surprisingly survived the whole run. And I wished the story could have been deeper.

It looks like Alicia Vikander's preparation for the role of Lara Croft was quite painful. She trips, falls, punches, and crashes in from scene to scene. Vikander certainly proved she can handle action roles like TOMB RAIDER. But the movie is not more interesting because of it. It's really a pain-by-numbers popcorn flick that wants to be this epic adventure saga. But it's not. Walton Goggins is the villain and he's not bad but hardly memorable.
