Just awful! Computer graphics ridiculously poorly executed. As bad as today's Disney animation. Unoriginal, stupid script. Sad to see Kristen Scott Thomas - in desperate need of a good meal - and Jimmy McNulty and even Walton Goggins so hard up for work that they ended up in this mess.

Starts out with young women beating the hell out of each other then declines even further.

Will never understand how people descend to such a level.

For those in need of epic struggles, hie it to the Hollow Crown - anything but this garbage.

Tomb Raider is that kind of film which should be watched, when you are thriving for an action-packed film. It is interesting how there is a huge plot twist till the end, which I deeply enjoyed. I thought that maybe they could have included some game references to make it a little more interesting but other wise it was great. I also enjoyed how there was always action scenes here and there. I feel like Alicia Vikander played the role of Lara Croft very well. Watching this movie is a great way to spend your time. I hope that in the future there will be a second movie. A solid 4 star. @SirAbstractCanvas of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

Rated 8/10. I thought this was pretty good overall. Alicia Vikander does a decent job as Lara Croft.

The action scenes are top notch.

I'm hoping that there will be a sequel to this, but so far there doesn't seem to be anything in the works.

Wasn't great - wasn't bad - just meh. Honestly you can probably go on YouTube - look for the video game clips of this game (which are amazing) and find a more enjoyable time with more like-able characters. This is a movie you watch when there's nothing else to watch.

Saw it in the theater and stayed to the end. Lots of action and it must have been a lot of work to produce. If you like action movies from start to finish then you may like this one. Lots of imagination went into this movie.

Do you remember the old Lara Croft with Angelina Jolie? Well, forget her. This one is way more dark. The plot was not like the other ones. Unless you are a huge Croft fan, this movie is not worth your time. The CGI was good, though.

An enjoyable escape from reality. Good action. Good story line. Nothing too spectacular. I think she wore the same green t-shirt through most of the movie.

Directed by Roar Uthaug in 2018 based on the 2013 video game of the same name, this American and British film depicts the adventure of Lara Croft.
Lara finds a pre-recorded video message from her father detailing his research into Himiko (卑弥呼), the mythical Queen of Yamatai (邪馬台) who was said to command the power over life and death.
She embarks on a perilous journey to her father's last-known destination---the island of Yamatai.
Although I enjoyed this action-adventure flick, the island of Yamatai is ridiculously misplaced.
Himiko (卑弥呼) is a historical figure who lived during the period (c. 170–248 CE) as a shamaness-queen of Yamataikoku (邪馬台国)---part of ancient Japan.
However, the whole story is fake fiction since her tomb has NOT been found yet.

Very good action movie. Loved the stereotypes, loved the pace and loved the fact that there was no Angelina.

If you can turn off your mind and watch this movie you will very likely enjoy it. Alicia Vikander is a better Lara Croft than Angelina Jolie and Jolie was very good. Jolie had much better writing as this movie is stupid beyond belief if you actually think as you watch. It starts with Lara poor and later implies that Lara is this way because she won't take her father's money because she would consider it as conceding that he is dead. While not spelled out, it seems clear Lara would have been a minor when dad disappeared so she wouldn't have really had a choice. But even if that is the case that is just not how humans work- You've just lost someone so you are going to cut everything out of your life that has to do with them? No, people seek comfort in the things they know, like their own home.

Next, rather than accessing the vast funds available to her Lara pawns a priceless necklace that is her one remaining memento of her mother. How does that make sense? Then, after tracing her father to Asia Lara is randomly attacked at the docks, AND IT IS RANDOM, the attackers never show back up and have no connections to the actual bad guys. Apparently the writers thought Lara pawning necklace and arriving in Asia was too much story line all at once and an action sequence was needed.

Frankly, with the exception of Alicia Vikander, the first Tomb Raider movie was better in pretty much every sense.
