    1st movie in a stylish package worthy of Croft

    The original Tomb Raider movie on blu ray, re-released in new packaging. The new steel book is pretty stylish and looks great with a full view shot of Angelina Jolie's portrayal of the character on a slick blue background. As for the movie itself, it's been 17 years since the film originally released and going back to re-visit it finds it surprisingly holds up. While video game movies have gotten a bad wrap, and the film isn't perfect, this original outing did a pretty good job of bringing in puzzle solving, Lara's personality and attitude, and tied it together in a decent paced plot. Don't go into it expecting everything to be grounded and logical, but enjoy the ride. Unlike the 2018 film, the original embraced the supernatural aspect of Lara's adventures with planetary alignments and mystical artifacts that can affect time itself.

    One of Angelina Jolie's better films

    This is one of Angelina Jolie's better films. Tomb Raider starring Angelina Jolie was based off the classic video game Tomb Raider. The storyline is good at best could have been better. This was actually one film where Angelina starred with her father Jon Voight. It was nice to see father and daughter on the big screen even though they had a very bad Feud going on. The story about the triangle of light and Illuminati met for a decent story but it could have been better.

    I got to admit. I am not a huge fan of these older Tomb Raider movies, but hot darn is that Best Buy packaging and steelbook design sexy. That's what drew me in here coupled with my love of Lara Croft in general and I guess you can say I'm a born sucker who had to have this. The price was right too. Video and audio are decent, but nothing to write home about. It's just a minor, nice to have, 4K upgrade.

    I think "Lara Croft: Tomb Raider" was one of the greatest action films of all-time and it was also one of my favorite action films of all-time. I have seen and enjoyed this film several times and I also think that "Lara Croft: Tomb Raider" had a lot of entertaining, exciting and enjoyable action, mystery and suspense including amazing personal/suspenseful storylines.

    Tomb Raider in 4K is a must.

    This film is a little old (2001) but WOW, this looks amazing in 4K. The sound quality is superb. If you have a 4K TV, or plan to get one in the future, this is one of those films that will really push the QUALITY of your sound system and TV to the edge. The studio did a great job of remastering the video and audio. Highly recommended.

    Eh, ok Movie

    Angelina Jolie is Lara Croft, in an epic battle between good and evil. If you ever played the game, KEEP playing it, the movie isn't anywhere near as cool as the game. People thought the movie was awesome?! I will admit, that there is some good battle scenes, but other than that, it wasn't the best. At least in the game, you can pretend that you are Lara, but in the movie, you can get really bored and tired.

    Angelina Jolie gives a stunning performance as Lara Croft in the first Tomb Raider movie adaption as a game. She gives a great portrayal of the character, the story is fun, action is intense, and all around enjoyable! This is a must have for your collection! The Steelbook is an added bonus! Don’t skip!

    Love the Dolby Vision Transfer to 4K UHD BD but I wish it had a Dolby Atmos surround soundtrack on the disc itself since it is the original DTS-HD Master 5.1 surround sound track. This is the best Tomb Raider movie ever done for a video game and Angelina is explosively amazing, hot and sexy!

    Fun Take on Tomb Raider

    This is a fun take on the Tomb Raider series. Its tone is much more light hearted than the serious reboot that came earlier this year, but Angelina Jolie played Lara Croft with the perfect sense of sexuality and style, bringing out a very charismatic side of the iconic game character.

    This is a great-looking steelbook edition for your collection, sleek and simple. And, for my money, Angelina Jolie will always be Lara Croft, not to belittle Alicia Vikander, who does a serviceable job in the reboot that came out last year. Rollicking good fun!

    This is an upgrade over the blu-ray. It comes with the 4k blu-ray, blu-ray, and digital copy which is also in 4k quality on iTunes or VUDU. They did re-use the same steelbook as the regular blu-ray version so on the spine you only see the blu-ray logo and not a 4k logo.

    I bought this steelbook because this is one of movie favorite movies and helped Angelina Jolie become a star. The 4K combo and cheap price made this a no-brainer to pick up. I turned out to be a great release and I am very pleased to have made this purchase

    Angelina Jolie Is Perfectly Casted As Lara Croft

    The Tomb Raider games were one of my favorites growing up and this movie is a nice rendition of those. Angelina Jolie is perfectly casted as Lara Croft and brings forth the skills in performance (including doing her own stunts) and looks to pull-off the game based character for this movie.

    Im a fan of the movie? No but a 4k UHD Steelbook on sale for under $15, why not. Not as bad as i thought it would be visually. Its ok considering its almost 20 years old. 4k does help in some scenes but overall, not bad

    If you're a fan of the video game franchise, you'll love this movie. It's not Indiana Jones and that's ok. Lara Croft is in a category of her own. Angelina did an excellent job as the hero. One of the very few movies based on a video game that got it right.

    I already owned the DVD of this but when I saw the 4k I had to get it and believe me it looks amazing. I could not believe that it looked so good. A blast from the past with the best visuals and sound out there.
