Storyline

The orphaned heiress and intrepid archaeologist, Lara Croft, embarks on a dangerous quest to retrieve the two halves of an ancient artefact which controls time before it falls into the wrong hands. As an extremely rare planetary alignment is about to occur for the first time in 5,000 years, the fearless tomb raider will have to team up with rival adventurers and sworn enemies to collect the pieces, while time is running out. But, in the end, who can harness the archaic talisman's unlimited power? Written by Nick Riganas

User Reviews

a really bad film
3 January 2002 | by vamps-fangSee all my reviews

If you are 10-12 yrs. of age you probably will enjoy this film. Accents coming and going, lame action sequences, and terrible direction.

I rather enjoy the game and yes, Jolie IS Lara, but this film was a let down. To bad Chris Barrie didn't have a bigger part. If you see this film expecting nothing, you may come away slightly relieved when it is over. Personally if I had the chance to do it over, I'd wait 'til bbc aired it for free.
