Product Description

A live action version of the highly successful Eidos' interactive video game, starring cyber-explorer Lara Croft. Lara Croft (Jolie) is a sexy publishing magnate who travels to exotic locations to uncover & preserve ancient artifacts.

From Amazon.co.uk

Angelina Jolie is the first and best reason to watch Lara Croft Tomb Raider. She gives an extraordinarily committed, physically demanding performance, taking on the mantle of the video game heroine with real conviction and energy, and becoming the embodiment of every teenage boy's wish-fulfilment fantasy female. She's tough, sexy and tomboyish all at the same time, and even has a plummy English accent to give her a touch of class. It's a shame that the movie doesn't live up to Jolie's high standards. A soulless juggernaut of computer-generated effects and one-dimensional characters, the film falls into the same trap that has ensnared every other video game adaptation before it. The convoluted plot--which is concerned with a mysterious planetary alignment, a quasi-Masonic secret society known as the Illuminati and a mcguffin called the Triangle of Light--takes itself far too seriously. Oddly for a film with such a pedigree, the only humour is to be found in the endless repetition by Jolie of the word "bugger", which presumably is hilariously funny to American audiences. Director Simon West, an alumnus of the Brookheimer-Simpson school of filmmaking, choreographs the action sequences spectacularly enough, and their impact is boosted hugely by Jolie's ability to perform almost all the stunt work herself. But the end result is an empty experience that leaves the viewer with the feeling that this much-loved character and this dedicated actress could have been better served.

On the DVD: Eschewing the need for a second disc, this DVD still has plenty of additional material to keep fans happy. There's no single making-of documentary, but rather a series of shorter pieces on specific aspects of the production--the original game, the transition to the big screen, the special effects, the stunt work and the rigorous training endured by Jolie (apparently she got so good she could do the stunts better than any of the stunt doubles). There's also U2's "Elevation" video, some deleted scenes, DVD-ROM features and a chatty commentary from director Simon West. The widescreen picture and thumping surround soundtrack are impressive. --Mark Walker

Format: DVD
I, like other tomb raider fans absolutely enjoyed this film. It gave some insight into lara's personal life by allowing viewers to understand her relationship with her father.
However, i did feel that the film was too much focused on her family ties rather than the adventure. The adventure was also a bit too lame for someone like Lara Croft, and i believe they could have squeezed in lots more action scenes if they wanted to make this a truely brilliant film.
I also believe that the critics have made this film turn out to be worse whereas it really isn't. That may be because this movie is really intended for those who actually know Lara croft through the games.
I would definately recommend this film to all Lara croft fans, and those who like an action packed movies. I mean, how often do we see a female adventurer as smart and intelligent as LARA CROFT????

To be honest the first time I saw the original version of this film I was disappointed. I have seen it several times since on dvd and the tv and enjoyed it more and more. I cannot see a lot of difference with the "uncut" version to the normal version although it is definitely longer if the times on the dvd labels are correct. Angelina is fabulous in the part - enjoy!!

Format: DVD
This is the famous movie version of the highly successful video game. Both my 12 year old daughter and I are big fans of the video game, in all its iterations. Angelina Jolie plays Lara, and she has the looks, physique, character and presence, to carry off the role convincingly. This video-game based action blockbuster delivers in terms of its casting, cinematography and action sequences. But it is less successful when it comes to script, plot and dialogue. Chris Barrie (best known for his role in Red Dwarf) plays Lara's "manservant", and attacks the role with great gusto and skill. Jon Voight and Daniel Craig, both excellent actors, also appear and they add gravitas to the film. In a nutshell, Lara is an adventurer-explorer, expertly trained in weaponry and physical combat, a seeker of lost and hidden treasures, i.e. very much the female equivalent of Indiana Jones. The film, just like a Bond movie or Raiders film, is packed with impressive stunts. Proudly displaying immodest boobs (not quite literally, but her bodysuit is definitely very figure hugging), significant brawn, and a wily brain, Ms Jolie gives an eye-catching performance as the central character. I recently watched this film again with my daughter, back to back with the sequel. My daughter just about preferred this film, but I definitely preferred the sequel, which I review elsewhere (giving it a solid 4 stars - Lara Croft - Tomb Raider/Lara Croft - Tomb Raider: Cradle Of Life [Blu-ray] ). This is an okay action movie, not as good as a decent Bond film or an Indiana Jones flick, but just about competent enough not to be a turkey. If you're an adult fan of Angelina Jolie, and want to see her on dispIay in a skimpy, skin-tight outfit, you might think that alone is almost reason enough to sit through this film. In any event, my daughter absolutely loved it, so what do I know!

Format: DVD
The planets are aligning and some pretty wierd stuff is going on in Lara's understairs cupboard (fnar fnar). The very fabric of time is under threat and if she wants to save the world from the evil clutches of the Illuminati, she's going to have to get her skates on (not to mention an industrial-grade bra).

I have long been absolutely mad on the whole TR concept and, when this - the first film - was announced, I awaited it with great anticipation, although I was a little sceptical about the idea of Angelina Jolie playing Ms Croft. In all respects, though, this film easily achieves its goals and satisfies expectations.

The look of it is spectacular. It could easily have been spoiled by an inadequate budget or miserly set design, but really it looks fantastic. Kick-ass action sequences, globe trotting locations and sumptuously stunning sets. Most importantly, the film tries very hard to remain faithful to the game series (and succeeds). The sets and story-line retain the (slightly corny) mysticism of the game, there are are some very TR-RPG camera angles and even the colouring and lighting seem to be strongly reminiscent.

Overall I think Ms Jolie does a fine job as the title character - she is acceptably English, suitably athletic, and appropriately pneumatic "up front" - a very convincing Lara Croft. It's nice to see Daniel Craig, Chris Barrie, Ian Glen, Julian Rhind-Tutt and even Leslie Phillips all playing their parts in support. I do feel that the producers rather overdid the "Englishness" of the film and the various players (pandering to the American audience, my inner bigot tells me) but one can't have everything and I suppose that the original Lara was in some ways a stereotypical Brit.

Yes, it's not the best film ever. I'll start off by saying this.

It is however, one of my favourite kinds of film. A brainless one.
With the simple plot of "bad stuffs goin' on", shortly followed by "Lara must stop bad stuffs". Really, that's about as advanced as the plot ever gets. But that's not a bad thing, it keeps the film shallow, and easy to enjoy in a simplistic way.

I think most people have assessed Angelina's acting, so I'll say this: Chris Barry plays an amazing butler in the film, and the film really has it's funny moments. There aren't loads of them, but they are appreciated. Additionally, the film really captured the feel of the games in terms of terrain (aka tombs).

For a brainless, yet ultimately enjoyable film, I'd say this one definitely fills the quota. I'd also say it's a lot better than most people give it credit for.

For the price, I'd say it's a bargain.
