Tomb Raider (film review)

Film: Tomb Raider
Year: 2018
Genre: Action, Adventure
Starring: Alicia Vikander, Dominic West, Walton Goggins
About: Lara Croft, the fiercely independent daughter of a missing adventurer, must push herself beyond her limits when she finds herself on the island where her father disappeared.

My Review: 
Hearing that a new Tomb Raider was coming out rather worried me, as a lover of the games and a reboot as well this could be done really well or like a lot of games turned movies be not the film we as fans are wanting. As a result I went to the cinema to see what the reboot would be like.

The movie follows Lara Croft who after seven years of her fathers disappearance starts to look into the puzzle which her father had left behind for her. As a result she ends up going to an island to start looking for the answers about her father and find out what he was really up to when he left her. While doing this Lara finds out about the truth about her first tomb.

At the beginning of Tomb Raider I was worried about this not being good especially with it seeming to do absolutely nothing to do with the film. However, after the first half an hour or so and Lara starts looking into her fathers disappearance the film did pick up and become something which was very enjoyable to watch. With a lot of action and adventure in which you would be looking for with a Tomb Raider movie.

I did find this film very predictable however which did not keep me excited throughout the movie which did disappoint me and it did seem like parts of the film was just dragging on. This was something which in future films hopefully won't be so bad especially as the foundation for the future movies in the Tomb Raider movies is already established.

Overall, I did enjoy the film and really can't wait to see the ones coming next and hope that they stay more with the games in order to please both Tomb Raider film fans as well as gamers. I also can't wait to see what happens next within the movies and I am glad that they started with a good foundation and how Lara follows her fathers footsteps. I would recommend this film to those who like Tomb Raider as well as for people who love an adventure film. 

My Rating: 4/5

Adoring the first film and having watched it a few days prior I was excited to see what happens in the second movie and if it would live up to first movie. I love that  Ralph Breaks The Internet continues on from the first movie really well and tells us that it has been six years that the main characters have been friends for and how Vanellope is starting to get bored of her game and wants more excitement in her life. By also showing how Wi-fi became a part of the a
