Despite trying to keep his swashbuckling to a minimum, a threat to California's pending statehood causes the adventure-loving Alejandro de la Vega (Banderas) -- and his wife, Elena (Zeta-Jones) -- to take action.
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
This movie received mixed reviews, it seems to me that critics in general were too hard with this. For the genre it's a great movie. The plot is quite the kind of you could expect in a hunting treasure archaeological adventure like this. The action sequence were good, and the acting were above the average. Angelina Jolie and Daniel Craig did an amazing job. One can forgive some flaws as long as you take into account the source material. Something spectacular to me, that seems to had been passed unnoticed is the cinematography. The lighting of the sets and the visuals look of the film both stands alone for themselves. Enough reason to get a blue ray copy if you can and give it another try.
