Lara Croft takes a trip to a sunken city in Greece and discovers a strange orb. But before she has a chance to examine it
more closely, armed goons attack her and steal the orb. Nobody steals from Lara Croft, so she decides what the orb was and
what is going on.
Turns out an arms dealer wanted the orb in order for it to lead him to the Cradle of life where Pandora's box resides
and wishes to use the contents for a super virus which could destroy the world.
So Lara teams up with an old friend who betrayed her, getting him out of prison. But can she trust him or does he have
his own agenda?
I am a big fan of the games as you may already know if you read my review of the first movie, and I liked this sequel. But
I never heard of Pandora's box have poison inside it, I'm not sure if that's real of they made it up for this movie. Also
she didn't do allot of shooting in the first movie, she kicked allot of butt, but in this she shot the bad guys and that was
closer to Lara Croft would have done and that's why I think it's a great movie and I give it...9 STARS
I agree with Zedd on this and as he said in his review of the first Tomb Raider movie, Angelina Jolie was born to play Lara
Croft and I hope Tomb Raider 3 comes out very soon. I am giving it 10 big STARS!
ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (+ HITS):
+ STUNTS (One of the best stunts in recent history)
+ FIGHTS (Allot of great fights)
+ SHOOTING (Lara Croft shoots people in this one)
+ CHARACTERS (The human characters were well written)
+ MONSTERS (They didn't forget the monsters)
AND TWO WORDS...
+ ANGELINA JOLIE (Again, a great choice)
ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES):
- PANDORA'S BOX LEGEND (I'm not sure if that's totally accurate)
- FAN BASED (If you're not a fan of the games or the first movies, then this isn't for you)
