    The reason that Lara had big tits in the original game was because the developers wanted to make it obvious that Lara was female; they first tried to give her long flowing hair, but because of the limitation of the technology at the time, they couldn't do that so big breast were the only thing that they could do to make it clear that Lara was female. With the rebooted games; the gaming technology greatly improved, making the need for big tits irrelevant.

    The character design is pretty misunderstood. Toby Gard, the original designer of Lara designed her with such proportions because of the low detail in game models. Subtle forms would not come across right. Then the media picked up the character from Core design and sold out. They posed her in every magazine of the 90's as a sex symbol. Toby Gard actually left the company because he did not agree with what they did with Lara.

    It's funny when Tamara takes the box out of her shirt, only to reveal that she already has nicer boobs than Lara Croft, but I understand the effect she was going for.

    Im not as big of a tomb raider fan and more used to the old movies (new game looked great) that being said the movie was ok but felt watered down in ways, she's so much more of a badass your right Tamara she needed to much help. Id love to see a more intense sequel with a more competent Lara maybe borrowing a bit from the old movies, mainly the adrenalin junky aspect.

    Well we can now actually say that videogame movies are now better than ever. Proven by tomb raider, assassins creed, rampage and jumanji (can we call jumanji a videogame movie, considering it's a board game turned into videogame?).

    I think it would have been better if it was about 10 hours longer and playable.
    Seriously speaking, there were parts where I wanted nothing more than for someone to hand me a controller and let me take over. For some reason, the chase sequence in the Hong Kong docks looked really fun to me. I then got home and immediately booted up the 2013 game again.
    I thought the first half was really good. The second half was a little too paint-by-number to me.
    And I must disagree and say that I thought the pawn shop scenes were the worst parts of the movie. I was not into the comedy and the "I'll take two" bit was the kind of fanservice that just makes me roll my eyes.

    Hated how they removed the supernatural part of Tomb Raider, they change it to Uncharted at the end, Himiko turning people into zombies is the same as El Dorado from Uncharted

    I really enjoyed this movie 😂😂 and so did my friend too, and she didnt know ANYTHING about tomb raider, and i’ve played the games and studied the shit outta this movie xD
    I think they did a really good job at it, cast, dedication at all, i think they did a really good job as well as mixing the two games together BUT also managed too pull off there own little twist/origin.
    And really, it just was like i was playing the games again 😂 and i got extremely excited when they like pulled a part from the game i was like ‘I KNOW THAT PART!!!!’
    And yeah, i cried too xD dw.

    Every Lara from each game has big boobs. The fact that actress doesnt have characteristic looks of the character she's portraying will make many fans upset for sure. Me as well but I personally can't take only two things about this Lara's look - her hair and face... I mean she has such an innocent face while every Lara has that smart looking eyebrows and sharp eyes and full lips. They bassicaly changed Lara's character this way too... Completely different type of face. And why they didn't even try to style her hair more like modern Lara's? I'd prefer her having messy hair around the face and frill rather than that.
    Thats very misleading especially considering that this is a movie that is supposed to be an adaptation of TR 2012 while they changed so much in the story for no reason and Lara herself. Whats the point of that, totally disappointed. But its still much better than Angelina Jolie TRs they're terrible in every way, this Tomb Raider at least can stand on its own, and is definitely a good movie based on a video game and that is the reason why I respect this movie.
    I mean all in all I'm very disappointed as a fan but I respect this movie. As a fan I was hoping to have TR movie with a completely new adventure rather than this, and if they had to make an adaptation then they should make it more adequate.

    If Lara croft was a role model, why do you keep mispronouncing her name? Lara doesn't sound like Laura. It's Lah rah.

    0:18 I think the cutscene Lara model looks WAY better then in-game Lara.
    I just think that this Lara looks WAY too skinny and boney, like she hasn't eaten in months. personally, you look far better and attractive.

    I notice a disturbing amount of people here who only cares about Tamara's looks. If you want to focus only on someone's physique, stick to fitness, model and make up tutorials.
    Haven't seen the movie yet, but as a Swede I am by social law obliged to see it.
    ..or just to see how well it follows the games since everyone says that she is either spot on or a total miss.

    I liked it a lot. It felt realistic. The characters felt real. Alicia as Lara was absolutely fantastic, the character struggle feels real. The end was for me a good set up for the next movies or so I think. It reminded me a lot to Indiana Jones at the climax.

  • Kevin W. Clark
    Kevin W. Clark Year ago

    The movie was good but the game did it way better. There isn't enough character development she is pretty much the badass she was by the end with the exception of losing a boxing match. My only real criticism with the movie is that the island is pointless because Lara is already beyond the origin of the character. She already knows how to use bows and guns. This movie should have explored how she has to survive and what she needs to do in order to survive better. She never hunts but she instantly is able to silently move about the campsite as if she is an assassin. All of this could have been put in the movie in replace of a 20min bike chase scene that attributed nothing to the plot. It was like the movie stopped to force a scene from another movie in it. There was also a scene where Lara calls to her father in the temple cave that seems like a deleted scene. It just stood out as odd. Aside from those moments the pacing was actually pretty good for a current action Hollywood movie.

    One thing I guarantee the movie missed out that's in the game is the deaths. That game is brilliant, you start out and get killed in brutal ways, so you as the player learn from that as Lara learns to be a badass, chasing away the enemies that earlier strangled her with a machine gun, before confronting the main villain. I love that game.

    There's my problem: I played the game, therefore I know the movie... From the shipwreck, everything is basically the same and it was a big turn off for me. I would have liked to see something different, fresh. Don't be afraid to be creative. Instead I feel they put a director in charge whose task is to make gamers happy and had no idea how to.

    People are still pissed about her boobs? Anyone familiar with the games knows that ship sailed when they rebooted the franchise in 2011 specifically to make lara more of an everywoman and less of a sexpot. I wouldn't be surprised if the people on twitter moaning haven't played any of the games since the mid 2000s

  • S.A.M.
    S.A.M. Year ago

    The issue with Lara's boobs isn't that "OMG SHE NO SEXY NO MORE" (not for most people anyway), but that every iteration of Lara Croft actually looked like a grown woman. You believed that she was, in fact, a British Aristocrat with a love of globe-trotting and "acquiring" rare antiquities. This reboot looks less like "Lara Croft" and more like "Lil' Lara's Preteen Adventures".

  • Dark Silver

    I thought it was....fine. Great considering its a video game adaptation. I felt it took too long to get to the island action. It missed out on many elements you get in the game. You dont have the luxury of having so much time since its a movie however so one can understand why. How bad ass she seemed I think she could have had more bad ass moments.
    So it was fine but I'm hoping for two things. 1) It does well enough that we get a sequel because it has huge potential what with the character and Alicia Vikander can offer. However, 2) I hope they deviate from the video game story. Dont do a remake of Rise of the Tomb Raider. The character is somewhat set up and I hope the sequel does it's own thing. Make it a huge globe trotting adventure. So, fine movie, and Im happy with that.
    I still dont understand how can you screw up an Assassin's Creed movie.....but thats a topic for another time lol
    btw, have to say Tamara, you are looking more and more beautiful every time.

  • Dreadjaws
    Dreadjaws Year ago

    People who complain about the boob size... I mean, assuming it was a legitimate complaint, they'd still be wrong, because this version of Lara is the one from the reboot, which is not the one with giant breasts.
    I really liked the movie. I don't know if it was because of low expectations, but I thoroughly enjoyed all my time with it. Vikander was great as Lara, and I liked the fact that they actually bothered to properly write the character rather than leave her to be an empty shell, like videogame movies tend to do.
    Also, I don't have a problem with Lara not being powerful at the end. This is her origin story, she's never been out on adventures, so of course she's not a freaking superheroine like Angelina Jolie's version was.

    This was a fun, popcorn level movie. I am only a casual Tomb Raider video game player, but I recognized several scenes in the movie that really give me a sense of déjà vu (in a good way). I could have used less BMX time and more island time, but I never checked my phone (for the time) so good on you movie. Assassins Creed disappointed me but I bring it up as Michael Fassbender and Alicia Vikander are a couple...irony the gift that keeps on giving. Great review!

    Honestly this movie doesn't sound it is as good as the game it was based on. In the game Laura is on an archaeology mission with a group of her friends and co-workers when they get strandered on an island controlled by the spirit of a dead Japanes empress. The villain of the game is the leader of a cult on the island that are trying to resurrect the empress by sacrificing Lara's best friend. It's a simple but interesting plot revolving around the question how far should one go in order to survive. This is made more interesting by having the leader of the cult act as shadowy mirror for Lara by making his motivation is his own survival. He doesn't care about the cult or the Empress, he is just using them as a means to getting off the island. Showing both Lara and the audience the dark side of trying to survive no matter the cost. The movie on the other hand seems to have way to much padding with secret conspiracies and people trying to use the empress to rule the world.

  • Ethan Davis

    I haven't seen the new movie, so I'm not gonna say anything about it, but you said that it was a lot like the new reboot games, and begged the question of whether or not the tone was as inconsistent as in the game where she acts traumatized and has ptsd in the cutscenes but in gameplay, she murders people without a second thought.

    SPOILERS HERE and it's a weird "nitpick" here...
    It's rather ironic that Lara would've been able to rescue her father from the island if she accepted his death much earlier. The only reason why Lara found the clue to where her father went was through the puzzle box that was left to her in his will. If she signed the "death papers" the instant he was considered lost at sea, maybe the bad guy wouldn't have gone crazy from being stuck on the island for 7 years. Maybe Lara would've saved her father as well.
    But that's just a nitpick from me?

    The latest Tomb Raider film surpasses every video game movie before it by being completely average. It's your generic action flick propped up by a fantastic performance by Alicia Vikander, and the highest praise I can give it is that it portrays the newer games extremely accurately.
