Very average, sure the effects are nice but the 2nd and 3rd acts suffer.
Not to mention Alicia's accent was sub-par. I appreciate she has a strong Swedish accent, which is hard to cover but for someone supposed to be playing an upper class Englishman she falls very short.
Although it has spiked poles, booby-trapped caves, zombies and a great Vikander, it feels random, generic and flat. Then again, what were you expecting? It delivers, but it could have been much more.
Compared to most action-adventure stories, it's pretty average. But compared to other video-game movies, this is definitely one of the better game adaptations. It borrows more heavily from the more recent Tomb Raider games than the older '90s games most people are probably more familiar with (particularly Lara's use of bow-and-arrow instead of her trademark twin pistols). It's less tongue-in-cheek than the two Angelina Jolie films (which also fits with the darker tone of the recent games), but still manages to be a fun time.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
