Lara Croft (Alicia Vikander), the fiercely independent daughter of a missing adventurer, must push herself beyond her limits when she discovers the island where her father, Lord Richard Croft (Dominic West) disappeared.
At an archaeological dig in the ancient city of Hamunaptra, an American serving in the French Foreign Legion accidentally awakens a mummy who begins to wreck havoc as he searches for the reincarnation of his long-lost love.
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
When Lara defeats Powell, she kills him by delivering a chop to his throat. Realistically speaking such a move would have crushed Powell's trachea and caused him to gasp for air until he suffocated. His death would have taken several minutes yet, he falls dead instantly as soon as Lara delivers the final blow. See more »

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.
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.
