I received a copy of the Tomb Raider movie for review. All opinions are my own.
I have always been a Tomb Raider fan, so I was excited to see Alicia Vikander breath a new life into the role of Lara Croft. The movie starts when she is young and walks you through her history and how she becomes a global hero. It is packed with action, adventure and has a great storyline that leaves you wanting more. This is a great movie to add to your collection and watch with your family.
Lara Croft is the fiercely independent daughter of an eccentric adventurer who vanished when she was scarcely a teen. Now a young woman of 21 without any real focus or purpose, Lara navigates the chaotic streets of trendy East London as a bike courier, barely making the rent. Determined to forge her own path, she refuses to take the reins of her father’s global empire just as staunchly as she rejects the idea that he’s truly gone. Advised to face the facts and move forward after seven years without him, even Lara can’t understand what drives her to finally solve the puzzle of his mysterious death.
From Warner Bros. Pictures and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures, Tomb Raider is the story that will set a young and resolute Lara Croft on a path toward becoming a global hero. The film stars Oscar winner Alicia Vikander (Ex Machina, The Danish Girl) in the lead role, under the direction of Roar Uthaug (The Wave), with Oscar-winner Graham King (The Departed) producing under his GK Films banner. The film¹s production begins on the heels of the 20th anniversary of the wildly popular video game franchise from Square Enix, Crystal Dynamics and Eidos Montreal.
This is a great movie for girls to watch and see how powerful and strong you can be and that no one can tell you, you can’t or don’t.
