Director Simon West decided to name the character "Alex West", after his father, since he knew, that if needed, he could get legal clearance for the name. See more »

The best part in this movie was without a doubt sexy Angelina Jolie in the title role as Lara Croft.She was very HOT! I`m no fan of the game,but with no comparisons;the movie was good. Entertaining enough;no brains,no story,no heart,but full of special effects action.Jolie is good,so are her real life father Jon Voight but rest of cast is forgettable.This is very much like Indiana Jones,but much lesser memorable.A better script would have helped,but that`s not the point;this is supposed to be fun.Better than "The Mummy",but just another Indiana Jones clone.Anyway;it`s OK.
