Tomb Raider is back in the re-imagined version of the beloved video game character the one and only Laura Croft!
The video game that originally released in 1996 exclusively on the Play Station One and had its own movies back in the early 2000’s was rebooted after Crystal Dynamics decided to reboot the character while re-establishing the origins of Laura Croft. The first reboot game was released in 2013 and titled Tomb Raider. The game starts Laura off on the island of Yamatai where the not yet explorer and battle ready Laura goes to extreme lengths to save her friends and escape while being hunted down by a malevolent cult.
The new movie released March 16th, 2018 in theaters, takes the similar story from the rebooted video game and applies it to the new movie. Instead of Angelina Jolie this time around actress Alicia Vikander takes on the role of Laura, and based on early reviews and me witnessing the movie for my self she is the best part of the reboot.
If you played the latest games you already know the story line at this point and can kind of predict what will happen in the movie because they maintain a similar theme in the movie as they do in the game.
The movie has its moments of being slow and it takes a while to pick up, however once Laura travels to the island things start to kick off from there. So if you are a fan of the character or you just want to see a awesome female action flick Tomb Raider is the movie to see.
