For a while I've been realizing that many video game movies have been lacking compassion, heart or a true-to story. This movie pulls off all those things in a slick way. Not only does it contribute to the story with a great grasp onto the source material, but it also presents the viewers with many reasons why Tomb Raider is both a great game and a movie. So don't watch Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, but instead, watch this movie.

The Synopsis for Tomb Raider (2018) 720p
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 ...

The first good movie based off of a video gameReviewed bybiondinVote: 10/10
Going into this movie, I had very high hopes - I loved the previous movies (for all their flaws and silliness), and have played and enjoyed almost all of the games, including the reboot this movie is based on. What this movie feels like, is pandering to the "Lara Croft" name, it adds nothing new, in terms of the Tomb Raider Mythology or any action movie in general. The script is generic, boring and predictable. The entire cinema actually scoffed at a line close to the end, during a scene which was supposed to be dramatic, but came off as fake and unusual.
The characters' motivations were never fully explained, including Lu Ren, who flips between "this trip is suicide there is nothing that can make me go" to risking his boat and his life for ￡1000 within a 30 second scene. The characters themselves seemed entirely one dimensional, there is a scene early on with Lara sharing eye contact with a female which hints at an affection as it lingers for slightly too long, which would have been a really interesting thread for a 21st century twist on her sexuality, but that character is never seen or mentioned again in the film.
The "mythology" side of the story I enjoyed, while it was more grounded than the previous movies or games, this wasn't a bad thing.
Alicia Vikander looks the part, certainly, Daniel Wu is passable, and Walton Goggins, for his credit, is fine. All of which are compliments, because the script is written in such a way that no characters are really able to show depth or development. I think my biggest issue with this film is how stupid almost every single character is. Without going into spoilers, there are moments particularly in the final third which baffled me. Why, when trying to kill someone, would you not use a gun? Why, turn back on yourself? Why? Why? Why?
The CGI is average, passable in the darker scenes but jarring in the daylight. Action set pieces are few and far between and the plot starts well, but by half way through drags and could do with being 20 minutes shorter at least.
Beautiful and good actress, spectacular scenes, when you see a movie like Tomb Raiber, better not analyze everything, it's the spectacle and Hollywood effect that compt, i like it!
