The recent Tomb Raider games have been praised for their strong narratives and clever reimaginings of classic Tomb Raider tropes. The movie just becomes Lara running through the jungle, getting tossed around, and dealing with her emotional baggage.
The games tagline reads: "Shadow of The Tomb Raider is the climatic finale of Lara's origin story". You'll encounter beautifully hostile environments, full of treacherous conditions and unstable landscapes that will require Lara to push her limits to the very edge. The problem is, her journey is rather boring. Lara must find a way to defeat Vogel and get out alive.
Is there anything else we can learn from this website's source code? Do I have to be the one who f--g says it? "For you to relate to her and root for her and feel the journey she goes on to becoming the action hero that we've known her to be".
"Lara's in nearly every scene and shot in the movie, we wanted to get close up with as little CG as possible".
"I was really looking to get an authentic and gritty feel to the whole movie, so we shot a lot of it for real", Norwegian director Roar Uthaug said. And that female empowerment is clearly the aim here - Lara Croft was one of the first woman action heroes in video games (until she was sexualized in later iterations).
The story of "Tomb Raider" is actually decent.
Speaking of the Tomb Raider, Crystal Dynamics has not shown or shared much about the upcoming title but, past year a concept art for the game leaked which suggests that the game might feature unique weapons like a machete and a spear. That's a big accomplishment when dealing with the expectations that come with a well-known franchise.
"Tomb Raider" is the kind of movie in which our heroine, played by Vikander, refuses to accept her wealth and works as a bike courier to make the rent - and then has to race so she can show how rebellious she is.
