Product Description

In this sequel to "Lara Croft: Tomb Raider", Lara must retrieve a stolen treasure to prevent its falling into the hands of Chen Lo, a villainous syndicate boss. While looking for antiquities in a sunken temple, Lara Croft finds a sphere that holds the location o f "Pandora's Box". Before she can reach the surface with her find, though, Chen Lo steals the sphere and Croft must embark on a rou nd the world quest to get it back and save the world from the biological weapon the syndicate wants to create with the contents of t he Box.

From Amazon.co.uk

Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life may be an improvement on its 2001 predecessor, but its appeal is mostly aimed at fans of the video games that inspired both movies. That pretty much leaves you with some fun but familiar action sequences, and the ever-alluring sight of Angelina Jolie (reprising her title role) as she swims, swings, kicks, shoots, flies, jet-skis, motorcycles, and free-falls her way toward saving the world, this time by making sure that a grimacing villain (Ciaran Hinds) doesn't open Pandora's Box (yes, the actual mythological object) and unleash a deadly plague that will "weed out" the global population. Exotic locations add to Jolie's own coolly erotic appeal, but we're left wondering if this franchise has anywhere else to go. --Jeff Shannon

Format: DVD
As most of us know, Lara Croft is an adventurer and treasure hunter, the female equivalent of Indiana Jones. Angelina Joliet has the lead role. Dr Jonathan Price (played by Ciaran Hinds) is a murderous arms designer and dealer, who, assisted by a Chinese gang akin to the Triads, wants to get hold of the Cradle of Life (Pandora's Box), the world's ultimate weapon. A football sized golden globe is the map leading the way to Pandora's Box, which the Chinese gang snatch out of Lara's possession.
Lara, assisted by a retired Marine named Terry, played by Gerard Butler, goes on the hunt for the Chinese gang and the missing globe. The stunts are very impressive, easily on a par with a Bond movie. However, the CGI is less effective, for instance, a computer generated shark in the early scenes is woefully unrealistic, almost (but not quite) on a par with the rubber shark in the original Batman movie from the 1960's.
A scene where Terry and Lara jump off a skyscraper, using body shaped chutes, is also done with CGI, and is equally unrealistic. It would have been much better to use stuntmen jumping off the skyscraper (think of the bungee jump stunt at the start of Goldeneye, and imagine that done with CGI, it would have been rubbish).
In any event, Angelina, and notwithstanding her undoubted femininity and beauty, makes for a very convincing and tough Lara Croft, both in terms of the scenes requiring athletic prowess, and the scenes of physical combat with the Chinese villains. Lara manages to retrieve the golden globe, and works out how to use the map to find Pandora's Box.
It's all a bit hokum and bunkem, but then what do you expect from a fun family adventure film like this, it's not meant to be too clever, or too sexy, or too violent, or to hold up to any logical analysis.

This is a great film alot better then the first one and by far more action. Angelina Jolie is out standing through out and she is of the first action females to do her own stunts and pulls it of well. The film is more assured, more entertaining it uses imagination and exciting locations to give the movie the same kind of pulp adventure feeling we get from the Indiana Jones movies. If you're a die hard Indiana Jones fan, or any of those movies that take you all over the world on a great treasure hunt, you will LOVE Tomb Raider! Both movies show a new side to Angelina Jolie, a smart, skilled, self- reliant woman who can kick butt! So the characters don't have 10 dimensions, what person looking to watch a true action flick really CARES if the main character had a rough childhood or not? Not hat it is JUST like those other adventure movies either, yes there native tribesman, booby traps, and lots of bad guys who show up at just the right time, but the places this movie takes you are unique and extremely exotic! Plus when was the last time you saw a movie about Pandora's box, or where the FEMALE lead saves the day? So grab your popcorn and get ready to go for an adventurous ride with Lara Croft, Tomb Raider!

I'm not ashamed to admit I am a Lara fan: I've loved the games since theyfirst came out and trembled with excitement when the movies hit ourscreens. Sad? Probably. But jolly good fun though.
Tomb Raider 1 wasa let down - I conceede to that. It was a thin plot with little actionand it failed to reflect the integrity and depth of the Tomb Raidergames.
I actually prefer this sequel which runs at over 2 hours. It's moreaction packed, has a much more interesting and complex storyline and Jolieis more impressive as Croft second time round. The story moves along at acracking pace and the set pieces are far superior to the firstmovie.
Okay, so I did chuckle a bit when Lara punched the (ratherpoorly CGI'd )shark underwater, but that was the only low point and I wasprepared to overlook that in light of the rest of the movie which waspretty cool.
No, it has nothing at all to do with Gerard Butler being in it - how couldyou even suggest that!?
Seriously though, this is a good movie to just sit back and be entertainedby. It's undemanding escapism and quite simply 2 hours of thigh slappingfun.

Lara Croft is seeking Alexander the Great's temple in the Meditarranean ... she had researched it contains the "secret" to Pandora's box. She discovers the temple but so does the Chinese mafia, who are directly behind her. They, too, are searching for the same thing. Lara narrowly escapes with her life as the rumblings of an underground earthquake destroy the temple. However, just before the destruction is complete, she climbs to the top of Alexander's statue and snags a large reflective jewel. Th Chinese give her a life-and-death defying under water chase ... during which, one of the Chinese divers grabs the "jewel" from her clutch. The photography is stupendous. The story line is clean-cut and flawless ... the plot is set for the next challenge. The viewer is taken on a world-wide adventure tour, from Europe and the Meditarranean to Asia, Hong Kong and mainland China, and finally, Africa ... where the secret is hidden.
After Lara's narrow escape she researches "Pandora's box" and the mechanism of the "jewel". She theorizes how it functions. She is obsessed with regaining the jewel and discovering its "secret". This goal leads her to rescue a long-time romantic interest, a Scotsman, from a jail located somewhere in Afghanistan or a nearby region. He has the necessary skills to infiltrate China. The viewer is sitting on the edge of his/her seat as Lara and the Scotsman perform aerial fetes, acrobatic and combative skills against enemies in Hong Kong, to where they trace the jewel. Some of the most beautiful and breath-taking scenery is filmed in China: a motorcycle ride on the Great Wall of China, valleys and mountains, and the side of a cliff where a Buddhist temple is located ...
The third section of this movie ends in Africa ...
