Rebooting a franchise from the early 2000s I've never seen comes a new Tomb Raider film that are based off video games with a new one coming out later this year I believe? Anyhow this film tells the story of a new Lara Croft played by Vikander as she's discovering who she is along with traveling to island and finding her father. We begin the film with Lara training and living her life in London where she does boxing with her friend Sophie (Kamen, turning out to be a big 2018 star) where together they live a fun young life and she has a lot of friends too. Lara one day finds stuff her Dad, an adventurer, has left behind with a message on camera, along with his lifes work. After pulling together £8,000 Lara gets herself to Hong Kong on the trail of a man who can help her, this pair make their way to the uncharted island not knowing what to expect. On this island she's greeted by a group of men working to get into the tomb which holds a woman that brings death everywhere she went, sounds fun. Lara is able to get herself in and out of a fair bit of trouble here and even stumbles accross her Father who was to be presumed dead, then this pair find themselves at the entrance to the tomb, a moment I was expecting to be big, because it felt underwhelming when we reached what we were looking for. Anyways a group work their ways in and get to the burial place, eventually, and find the body of the death woman. There's a race to escape as things begin to turn for the worse for everyone here, leaving just Lara and Vogel (played by Goggins) to face off and as you can gather Lara escapes with a few scratches on her and finds her way back to England. It's here and during an early credit scene it's possibly teased that a sequel could happen, if it did, I'd feel it would be a lot more political following what we saw and to be honest, I would like to a sequel despite not knowing if ones in the works due to the films reception earlier this year.
