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.
Off the coast of the volcanic island of Santorini, the intrepid archaeologist, Lara Croft, makes the unexpected discovery of a throbbing golden orb able to guide its holder to the mythical Pandora's Box. As the legendary artefact contains ancient mysteries of unfathomable power, Lara needs to make sure it doesn't fall into the wrong hands, especially the unscrupulous former Nobel Prize winner and now a bio-weapons dealer, Jonathan Reiss. With the aid of the former agent, Terry Sheridan, the fearless adventurer travels the world in pursuit of the precious item; however, can she retrieve it in time to save the day?Written by

Near the start, the underwater bikes first enter the water (wet for wet scene).
Watch the front of the lead (grey) bike. Just before the nose reaches the edge of the frame, two bright fast-moving bubbles go past diagonally left to right. These can only have come from the film crew. See more »
They found another one. There's going to be no treasure left by the time she gets here.

There used to be a time when movies were better than TV, and video games were an afterthought. I remember a time when a great movie would come out and it might spin off into a crappy TV show and a good action movie might spin off into an 'OK' video game.
Oh how times have changed. Now movies are so empty of originality and creativity that the tables have completely turned. Now marginally good video games are recycled into incredibly bad movies, and third rate TV shows are now plundered for their core idea and turned into fifth rate films.
If Hollywood is wondering why their profits are down and why people aren't going out to the movies anymore, its because they continue to make sheer festering piles of uselessness like "Lara Croft: Video Game Idea Raider". Its not just because the economy is bad that we avoid these movies like death itself, its more because we know that an emotionless video game shoot-em-up is not likely to produce any greatness up on the big screen.
The talent in the movie industry is now spread so thinly that its virtually undetectable.
How about next summer instead of 20 unbelievably awful movies, how about they just make 1 good one.
