Based off the 2013 video game of the same name, Tomb Raider is full of action packed thrills but also establishes a much more realistic and relatable version of Lara Croft.
This origin story may have been inspired by the video game, but it still drove itself away from the main story-line, at times opting for narrative choices that I felt were very cliche and obvious in big budget movies.
Tomb Raider will no doubt be at the pit of people’s ridicule purely because it’s a series that’s been welcomed into the world before. Despite this, I urge people to see the film with fresh eyes or play the 2013 rebooted video game and then come up with the comparisons. You may find yourself pleasantly surprised and have yourself a new kick ass character to be inspired by.
