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

Alternate Versions

The R1 DVD includes four deleted scenes:
  • Wilson meets Powell and Pimms in a construction area, where he gives them all his notes about the clock. Then Powell beheads Wilson and asks Pimms to bag the head...
  • After Julius, the assault team leader, has deliverd the clock, Powell says to Pimms that Croft is still in the game and that they might even need to hire her.
  • While talking to Croft in Venice, Powell explains to her what the Illuminati are and what they do. He suggests they could be partners, to which Croft replys "You might try to kill me." Powell answers "I'm not gonna kill you." Crofts response is "No. I said "try"."
  • Still in Venice, Lara visits Alex while he is playing cards with some other guys, who leave right away. Lara tells Alex that he is working for some very bad people, and that the problem about him is that he can't be trusted. She then says "I know what you are", throws a card which spins around his head back into her hand (boomerang-like): it's the Joker. Then she grabs the triangle which he has hidden under the table and leaves.
  • The documentary "Crafting Lara Croft" features a slightly longer version of Powell's Death. After Laras punch, he hits the floor and is then wrapped up in light.

Emotion and adventures with frenetic action
18 May 2005 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

The film talks upon Lara Croft (Angelina Jolie), an explosive and sexy British archaeologist and it results to be an adaptation from a successful and famous video game . Lara musts discover and destroy halves-objects of an old relic which can control time and a nasty (Iain Glen) also wants to obtain it with the aim to ruling the time . Lara Croft is helped by an adventurer (Daniel Craig , future James Bond) and by two sympathetic underlings (Noah Taylor and Christopher Barrie). Her dead father (John Voight, like on the real life) will give up clues to find it . She'll have to take on several risks , dangers and adventures until reach her aim.

The picture mingles suspense , tension , skydiving , action-packed , pursuits and a little bit of violence when the quarrel happen but it's a very amusing movie . It's a real and typical action film : Running men while are shooting , continuous struggles in bounds and leaps and interminable runs . It's a run-of-the-mill action picture , as from the beginning to the end , the unstopped action and the fast movement is varied . Besides , there are breathtaking outdoors from different countries around the world where the protagonists are traveling to resolve the issues . The final duel amongst the starring and contenders for the possession of the ancient relics is impressive and groundbreaking . The film is similar to the posterior :¨ the cradle of the life¨ , it has a likeness chum (Daniel Craig-Gerard Butler), equal performers (Noah Taylor and Chris Barrie ) with gorgeous as well as spectacular scenarios . However , the first part achieved a lot of box office and second part (directed by Jan De Bont) attained limited success because the storyline was basically a rehash of the original film . Peter Menzies cinematography is awesome like is marvelously reflected on the extraordinary outdoors and Graeme Revell musical score is jolly and lively . The picture was rightly directed by Simon West.
