Roar Uthaug directs this action adventure reboot of the popular computer game starring Alicia Vikander as Lara Croft. Following the disappearance of her father Lord Richard Croft (Dominic West), Lara inherits his estate and stumbles upon his work on the mythical Queen of Yamatai, Himiko, who was said to have held ultimate power over life and death. In search of answers, Lara enlists the help of Lu Ren (Daniel Wu), captain of the ship Endurance, to sail to the island believed to have been Yamatai. After a violent storm wrecks their ship, Lara finds herself on the mythical island where she becomes embroiled in a fight against archaeologist Mathias Vogel (Walton Goggins), who has taken over the island along with members of the shadowy organisation Trinity as they also investigate the legend of Himiko, but with more sinister intentions in mind to harness her great power...

I watched this film after watching Steven Spielberg's Ready Player One and the contrast between the way these two films were shot exposes the weaknesses of Tomb Raider. The director Roar Uthaug seems to come from the same school of directing as Michael Bay in that he can't seem to settle on a shot no matter what the pace of the scene there has to be an edit, every scene is shot as if it is an action sequence which means there is no rest for the eye and the film is frenetic when it doesn't need to be. The contrast with someone like Spielberg who knows how to construct a scene and to shoot it cinematically is in marked contrast with the pop video way this film is made. So a film that is let down by the way it is made and that makes it an irritating film to watch despite so much talent in front of the camera.
In terms of performances, Alicia Vikander does a brilliant job, as does Daniel Wu, and while Walton Goggins is very solid on villain duty many other bit-part players leave a lot to be desired. A wig-sporting Dominic West seems to be in a pantomime, for example, and Kristen Scott Thomas is given little to do yet still phones it in. Nice cameo from Nick Frost though!
The best elements of the film are its action sequences, as you might have hoped, most of which are very well choreographed, constructed and shot. There are a few slightly dodgy CG moments, but the dedication Vikander and the stunt team put into real-world exertions pays dividends, and the movie is worth watching for some of their work alone.
In particular, a chase sequence ending on a crashed plane teetering on a waterfall is *awesome*.
Vikander also gets some great fight sequences, plus some superb moments where she's stalking people with a bow and arrow. She is absolutely believable, even if a lot of the film seems to fall away around her like a trick floor in an ancient temple.
Indeed, what really sabotages the film is a dusty, poorly assembled script, which is laughable at times. While several moments are tonally perfect and feel genuinely adept, others are execrable, and these lows sour the many highs. Worst of all, the film ends with a rapid series of bum notes, including several that desperately look to set up a franchise *and* placate fans of the original video game series.
Concluding the film in this way does it absolutely no favours...
Overall though, I rather liked it, and immediately afterwards set about Googling whether there was going to be a follow-up - and I hope there will, simply because Alicia Vikander's Lara Croft is a character I would like to spend more time with. It seems sadly unlikely, with the film falling short of projected earnings, but I would happily sign up for second helpings.
On the Indiana Jones scale, it's better than the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, probably on par with Temple of Doom, if a little below it. If you like films akin to Romancing the Stone/Jewel of the Nile, or the Crocodile Dundee franchise, and fancy one of those globe-trotting, sweltering jungle action movies, I would recommend it.
