2781

Tomb Raider is an upcoming movie based on game series and is scheduled for March 16, 2018. See Alicia Vikander playing the leading role.

Read on Nexter.org whether this film’s worth watching.

Bad acting

With all love to Alicia Vikander, she’s not as much of an actress as Angelina Jolie. The same facial expressions during every scene of the movies.

Notwithstanding the fact she’s extremely cute and beautiful, she doesn’t resemble the game character and 2001 Lara Croft movie.

The cast

Oscar-winning actress Alicia Vikander starring as Lara Croft and…that’s it. We don’t want to say that other actors and actresses are bad or something, but to tell the truth, this cast suits more for ABC series.

Graphics

The budget of the movie probably was spent on some tacos as the graphics shown in the trailers are far more than awful.

Look at this crashed plane and say it’s the graphics movie studios can allow in 2017-2018:

How to forget about the poster fail?

At first glance, Alicia Vikander’s body looks pretty normal but then you notice her elongated neck. It’s impossible to unsee it.

Trailers don’t promise anything

Both trailers are almost the same and don’t show anything that would attract our attention.

The same colors, the same music, monotonous change of the shots – the main character running somewhere, talking and looking at some mysterious artifacts.

We DO hope Tomb Raider production has more editors and the movie itself will be more dynamic.

Regular origin of a regular character

Despite the fact that popular game series has been adapted for film twice before, with Angelina Jolie as Lara Croft, seems that we need one more version.

Continuing the issue with trailer, a new problem arises  – the plot and the main character story. We used to drama action twist of events, dark caves, and magical temples.

This time in the center of the movie will be the story of Lara Croft. Surely, it’s an important part of any game or movie universe. However, what’s new can “Tomb Raider” offer us?

Sad dialogues revealing some moments of Croft’s life, the number of events leading her to the truth, blah blah blah. We are sick of it.

What’s good in this movie?

Despite the lack of acting talent, Alicia Vikander is astonishingly sweet. She’s like the cute and innocent side of Lara Croft.

If you don’t really like Angelina Jolie playing the leading role or the design of the game character, you’ll probably like this one new Lara.
