Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Tomb Raider isn’t the best video game adaptation ever made but it’s also far from the worst. The films biggest issues is that because it quite faithfully recreates the story from teh 2013 game reboot it often feels a little too faithful, hitting the games key beats just without the fun of you controlling the outcome. That said the cast is fun, Alicia Vikander makes a damn good Lara Croft and the action is good for the most part. It’s just a shame the script wasn’t better. So not a miss. But only just.
Best Bit: China boat foot chase.
