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

Trivia

The temple on the hill in Cambodia, at which Lara lands, is Phnom Bakheng, which is just outside the South Gate of the city of Angkor Thom. Next, when we see her drive her Land Rover, Lara is at Bayon, at the center of Angkor Thom. The temple with trees overgrown on it, where Lara falls into the hidden tomb, is Ta Prohm. See more »

Goofs

As the locals are trying to pull down the wall to find the first piece of the triangle, Alex West takes off his shirt and starts to pull on the rope with the rest of the gang. In the next shot he is clearly seen to the left of the screen with his shirt back on as the wall topples down, jumping up and down and shouting something. See more »

Angelina Jolie is wonderful!
4 June 2002 | by laratringemSee all my reviews

What a great actress she is! I love world culture so this movie lived up to that, unfortunately the dialog/plot was sticky and predictable- Angie is capable of so much more. She carried this movie on her back and pulled the stunts off with gusto and grace(I want a bungee exercise room!). She is a great heroine. I am inspired to raid tombs myself now, or perhaps help refugees as Angelina does in real life. I hope for a sequel. This movie made me a Jolie fan and I'll see her future films and rent her past ones. Overall, a beautiful film to look at, but doesnt allow the watcher to get completely immersed into Lara's world. I give it a 7...
