Does Angelina Jolie's Tomb Raider Movie Hold Up?

It is Lara's character, however, that elevates the film and makes Tomb Raider stand out among other game-to-film adaptations.
Vikander, who won a best supporting actress Oscar in 2016 for "The Danish Girl", had yet to take on top billing in a blockbuster and is best known for her intense, emotionally dramatic performances. Yes, there are action sequences and mysteries that are solved, but it drags on. Lara has one female friend at the beginning, who is seen in two scenes and then vanishes, and then Ana, who is in three scenes the whole movie. Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below. They also chose to make this more of an origins story. Slim and not tall, she doesn't cut the figure of a muscled powerhouse, but here she fully embodies physical tenacity and grit, along with absolute determination not to give in or up.
But just as it's hard to fully dismiss the original Tomb Raider games because they were a breakthrough for representation in triple-A video games, it's hard to dismiss the movie for being the rare female-led action blockbuster. Before the decade was over, Angelina Jolie would even get another crack at making a solid action movie with Salt. But if Tomb Raider wasn't going to be great, I had at least held out hope that it would be entertaining.
