‘Tomb Raider’ Bullet Point Review

Using bullet points, I’m going to give you my thoughts on a movie based off of a video game franchise that should probably just be left as a video game franchise from now on…‘Tomb Raider’!


  • Why did they feel the need to tell us that Laura’s (Alicia Vikander) dad died/went missing seven years ago so many times? We got it after the first few mentions
    • Maybe they were trying to tell us that her dad was going to actually show up later on….(*watches the rest of the movie)…and yep, that’s what happened. Great foreshadowing guys smh
  • I hate when plot macguffins have a hard to say foreign name
    • No disrespect, I’m just saying the movie loss points with me for that
  • Some of the effects moments looked like they were pulled straight from the video games
    • Meaning, they looked very computer generated
    • I.E. When Laura falls from the destroyed plane and is in the air with a parachute
  • The trek through the tomb towards the end could have been quicker
    • Dragged too much for a crucial scene
  • There were some cool scenes of non-combative action
  • Vikander was cool as Laura Croft.
    • I like hers better than Angelina Jolie’s version so I’m going to just say that she did a better job
  • Vikander’s video game movie was better than her husband’s, Michael Fassbender, ‘Assassin’s Creed’
    • So she kind of has bragging rights now
  • To Sum it Up: An average action movie that doesn’t make me change my mind about video game movies…though it was better than recent ones

RATING: Might Stream


P.S. I have returned to my rating scale that I used to use but with a slight update. There are four different levels. Below is each level in order from best to worse and what each one means.

Must Own = A movie that is so good that I must add it to my Blu-ray collection when it comes out.

Would Accept as a Gift = I enjoyed the movie but don’t necessarily have to buy it (especially if I don’t have the funds to) myself but I would take it if someone bought it for me.

Might Stream = A movie that if I have the urge to watch again then I’ll just stream it from somewhere

Never See Again = Very simple. I don’t want to ever see this movie again.
