A popular video game comes to the screen with this big-budget adventure starring Angelina Jolie as a buxom heroine recalling equal parts Indiana Jones and James Bond. Jolie is Lara Croft, a proper British aristocrat groomed at schools for the children of the elite. Croft leads a double life, however, as an acquirer of lost antiquities through questionable means, highly trained in combat skills with the help of a robotic opponent called Simon. Despite her exciting profession and a life of wealth and breeding, Lara pines for her father, Lord Croft (Jon Voight), whose passing left her orphaned. On the eve of a celestial event that will also mark the anniversary of Lord Croft's death, Lara comes up against an ancient organization called the Illuminati, represented by the sinister Powell (Iain Glen), who's in pursuit of an ancient relic with power over time and even death itself. With the aid of her high-tech support team, Lara travels to some exotic locales in search of the artifact, including a foray into a decrepit Asian temple guarded by lethal stone apes and other creatures that spring to life. Filmed at various locations in Great Britain as well as Iceland and the Angkor Wat temples of Cambodia, Tomb Raider co-stars Noah Taylor, Chris Barrie, Daniel Craig, Rachel Appleton, Leslie Phillips, Mark Collie, and Julian Rhind-Tutt.~Karl Williams
Tomb raider Lara Croft . Need this for my collection as I am a fan of the tomb raider series by Angelina Jolie , they did a really great job in making this tomb raider movie and I can’t miss having a copy as I was disappointed 3 times for Best Buy giving me tomb raider the cradle of life and had to return 3 times until finally got Lara Croft Tomb Raider steelebook bluray copy .
I bought a few Blu-ray discs on Black Friday at a very good price. And this disc is a tin box version, but unfortunately, unpacking the plastic and found that the tin box is damaged. Lucky is a disc or no problem. The discount in your store shouldn't sell bad stuff, I'm disappointed!
I remember watching this movie in my teen years and obsessed with Tomb Raider and Angelina Jolie. Talk about nostalgia! Keep in mind, I remember vaguely what the plot was about. All I remember was she was a fighting a pretty sweet looking robot in a training simulator and a pretty neat shower scene that was left to the imagination. Fast forward to NOW! With the same optimism I had many years ago, we go back with Blu Ray quality. The movie was as 2000 as I can remember. The dialogue is awful, the plot is good, and the action is there. Familiar actor faces and the fleshed out performance of Lara Croft still holds up. Basically, the character development/introduction was perfect back then but the movie itself was an eye roller. I'd recommend it because when you really think about how far movies and video game movies progressed, we've made huge advancements. Also take into consideration that directors back then had to work with what they were given and its fair to say that Tomb Raider is a good movie that tries to stay true to the character and her nature of tomb raiding.
I only wish Angelina Jolie would have done more than two movies. For me she was the only choice to be the one that could make Lara Croft into a real life character and she did an incredible and believable job of it. If you are a fan the Tombraider video game series then this movie and the first one, Lara Croft: Tombraider, are a must to watch. The Steel Book Series with it's design makes them even more worth owning.
I love the color and vibrancy of this one! They’re both shiny and have a nice weight to them. I also love the movie quote on the back of the steelbook- “I’m not leaving you because I couldn’t kill you, I’m leaving because I could.” Both Tomb Raider steelbooks feel necessary for a classic collection.
