This movie was bad just bad but Angelina Jolie played a alright Lara Croft but the rest of the movie was lame.

A video game movie that spawned a sequel?! Still like Angelina Jolie in the main role, but the film is just kind of a mess. Still has the action, but never really goes anywhere. Kind of like the games - so in essence is succeeds in its failure.

Lara Croft saves the world again and gets to wear tight clothes. Good action. It's a story, folks. Don't be afraid of Pandora's Box.

Angelina Jolie reprises her role as that hellcat archaeologist and video-game vixen in "Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life." This is a popcorn flick, and somewhere between diving in a skintight silver wetsuit and riding side-saddle on her English country estate archeologist Lara Croft learns that a shining golden globe – which she had in her possession, then lost is actually a map to the mysterious Cradle of Life where the famous Pandora's Box is said to be hidden.

And thus begins the race to find "The Cradle of Life" and ”Pandora’s Box” before the baddies get hold of it and use it to take over the world. Yes, it’s a lame rip-off of 'Raiders of the Lost Ark' with a hot-chick in the lead role, but for all her hotness, she isn't nearly as watchable as Harrison Ford.

Lara Croft finds a novelty bowling ball that can reveal the location of Pandora's Box if you play it a tune, and so sets off to get it before an evil scientist can get his hands on it and unleash a plague on mankind. This preposterous plot is a virtual carbon copy of the plot to The Mummy Returns although quite why anyone would want to copy that is beyond me. It kind of reminded me of one of those globetrotting action movies Jackie Chan used to make, but whereas Chan would've injected a lot of humour into the proceedings, this film just joylessly lumbers from one unexciting and formulaic set piece to the next. Angelina gamely strips to her skinnies and runs around shooting the extras, the entire film fuelled solely by her sex appeal but the direction is sloppy and lazy and it's very …
