Everything GREAT About Tomb Raider!

3 918
Tomb Raider! A reboot of some movies based on old video games that were rebooted more recently. Really it's just a film adaptation of the 2013 Tomb Raider, but that was more fun to say. Some people loved it, some people thought it gave them cancer. Here's everything right with Tomb Raider!

Honestly my only annoyance with this film is that it didn't bring in Lara's extremely versatile climbing axe. You know the one that can act as a climbing axe, a pry bar, a melee weapon, and a grappling hook... But honestly I really liked this movie, and it did follow the 2013 reboot pretty close. All in all this is one of the best Tomb Raider movies I've seen and one of the better video game movies.

Best opinion? So you wouldn't mind casting Tom Hardy as Black Panther? Or are black fictional characters immune from the anti historically accurate depiction ideology? How about make a movie about Harriet Tubman, but make her white? Or change Captain Marvel to a guy? Your opinion is not the best because it has no respect for history. Laura Croft has ALWAYS been a barbie - not a bad thing, respect it. Captain Marvel is a chick - respect that. Black Panther is a black dude - respect that. Batman is a buff, smart dude - Robert Pattinson is neither of those things (bad casting). Your opinion doesn't have any regard for the past and that's a problem. It's the equivalent of building a skyscrapet with no base or trying to change the base after the skyscraper is already built - it will fall.

Alicia Vikander did a great job as Lara, and the movie as a whole was really good. What I love is that although it's more like the new Tomb Raider games (More survivor like) they pay homage to her roots at the end of the film when she (SPOILERS) gets her iconic dual pistols.

Full disclosure, I've never actually played any of the games, and my knowledge of the series is limited.
(Don't judge me—gaming is fun, but it is an _expensive_ hobby).
Anyway I totally agree with you on how they toned down whole Barbie-doll-proportions/sex symbol thing.
I think that's what made this adaptation really stand apart, in my mind, from the Jolie films.
Don't get me wrong, I do enjoy the Jolie duology. But compared to the Vikander reboot, they really milked the sex appeal of Lara's character.

I've actually just played Rise of the Tomb Raider on the PS4,
And I thoroughly enjoyed the movie and even though it's not that great because video game plots and characters don't really translate well to film, but it is very much entertaining
There are scenes in the movie that gave me flashbacks to sections of the game and it got me grinning

Oh, something else they ruined from the game series is Richard's vindication in his search for the supernatural. Lara used to resent her father's memory because of his neglect of her for his search for magic, and Richard was actually disgraced in the field of archaeology because of this work, but once Lara witnesses the supernatural for herself, she comes to respect her father's dedication and make peace with his memory. But this movie's Richard is made out to be a misguided weirdo who still neglected Lara because he couldn't handle the loss of his wife.

Realizing this video is a year and a half old, I did have something I wanted to throw out regarding this film as an adaptation and my biggest problem with it:
It's both too close and not close enough to the first Tomb Raider reboot game. It suffers HARD from adaptation decay, having very much "the same story but worse", tweaking entire story elements for seemingly no reason to something that's less compelling than what the game already had. Not even as far as I can tell in a better-for-the-screen vs video game narrative changes, just ... weirdly unnecessarily different. And otherwise like +50% of the movie is almost 1:1 taken from the game. The whole escape - log - river - plane - chute - injured alone in the forest thing is a sequence you play through near the beginning of the game.
Anyway, basically my thoughts on it were that it was a solidly "fine" movie that seemed like it could have been a lot better except for some weird decision making and almost taking the wrong elements from the game to adapt so faithfully; had it been less explicitly setpieced from the game (the end was different, and worked fine anyway) and borrowed more from the game narrative ... and just had better dialogue and pacing overall it could I think have been easily the best video game film adaptation to date at time of release (debatably still, and I'm writing this in 2020).

Well they've put themselves in a good spot for an adaptation of Rise and Shadow honestly, and they just took on the aspects of the first movie which were important for the later ones. I mean all the characters like Sam and Reyes were dropped like dead weight after the first game. Yes I would've liked more survival scenes instead of the scenes with Richard, but hey. We got Ana and Trinity already as known entities going into the sequel. That has the potential to be a lot more coherent than the games. We also might get more in depth survival scenes in Siberia next time around and it won't really be a redo. Plus there's a lot of cool nods, the shipwreck, getting knocked out on the beach, the hidden room at the manor from the DLC, the pickaxe, the first kill, the bow sequences, the waterfall sequence, the Endurance, Yamatai, Himiko, none of it is exactly like the game, but it's not like they weren't trying. And they've promised supernatural elements for the sequel as well, so she'll proof that Richard was right. ;)

The same stigma that exist for videogame movies once also existed for Comic Book movies.
Original Batman, early 80's Superman III, IV, 90's NInja Turtles 1,2,3, 1940's Capn America, Red Sonja, 90's Fantastic 4, Tank Girl, Barbed Wire, Supergirl, STEEL, Batman & Robin, 89 Punisher, League of Extra. Gentleman (I only know of ONE person who likes this movie, and he was a RICER, yeah you Shinji), The Spirit, The Phantom, 95 Judge Dredd, Blade Trilogy, etc.

COMIC BOOK movies were the JOKE of Hollywood. Look at them now. Overrated at times yes. But they owned that stigma for decades.

Videogame adaptations get that stigma now, which in a way are kind of like interactive modern day comic books evolved. People say they're dumb, with dumb stories, but they're not. Some are, but some are amazing characters with amazing potential.

Lara Croft is an amazing character
Last of Us could be spectacular
Halo if it had the budget and right director would be a hell of a space adventure
Uncharted, Because Nathan Drake, and his cohorts are awesome, Chloe, Elena, etc.
Red Dead Redemption
Metal Gear Solid
Mass Effect (not 3)
Knights of the Old Republic 4000 years before New Hope
Assassins Creed (I'm aware of the recent one, and it didn't hold up, not terrible but good either)
Final Fantasy .... maybe. But only as a CGI or anime. Too difficult to put to real life given the context. Advent Children was sweet.

The point is the content is OUT THERE, but who can we trust to give them what they deserve. Will they ever? Maybe if just a few can really get off, it'll set off a wave where studios will dedicate some effort, with quality writers who understand the content.

COMIC BOOK movies had a few good ones, but only recent modern wave of recent success really put them on the train they are on now.

But Hey, I liked Detective Pikachu! :D

I have watched a few of these videos over and love them as much as I agree with the cliche dodge at the end between Lara and Lu Ren. There is one thing in Hollywood though I would love to see change which is what this cliche dodge has caught my attention to me and its the lack of Asians in prominent roles outside of being a action hero that have better skills punching and kicking or being punched and kicked than actual acting skills.

i normally love the movies you review, and i've defo watched a few based on your episodes. even rewatched a few where you've pointed out stuff i had missed, like, the point in general. and tbh, i have actually enjoyed movies that i had previously despised.
i did enjoy parts of this movie, but most of that enjoyment was superficial. the fox hunt was nice because i've played it before, as the fox. the water cgi was amazing. almost all of the scenes with daniel wu were solid and then some....
but i couldn't get into this one. like. at all. most of the scenes only established one thing, and not very well. do we need to talk about the sloppy main plot point exposition done not once but three times? beautifully shot, well choreographed, solid b character talent, but the first act is way over done without really doing enough world building. not all of us played the 2013 TR game, so the young insecure lara is a bit of a departure from zeitgeist lara. it wasn't until roughly halfway through the movie that i started to get into the character.
the final act sort of got me but more because of the suspense. "oh they found the lady, what now!" i think the director really failed on what was otherwise a good movie. cinematography. great. acting potential, very good, especially for a lot of names no one really knows. cgi, mostly very good apart from the odd scene (cough, the falling plane). alicia really nailed a few scenes while dropping the ball on others.... and i don't blame her, i think the director didn't get the actors to do what was necessary for the scenes. alicia was there acting her heart out, but the direction wasn't there to keep the tone fluid, or to match the other actors (and vice versa). this might even be a step further and be a producer issue... the bane of fandom movies. i wouldn't know. maybe this is writers issue at its core.... i genuinely don't know.
i do hope this doesn't go down as a black mark in alicia's post oscar career because she is defo one to watch for in the next few years, but she needs a bit stronger director in her corner (yay puns). *points emphatically at ex machina* she's got the chops, uthag not so much. i will probably not watch the sequel if he is at the helm. EDIT: just looked it up, it's ben wheatley who i know from doctor who... so, maybe? yay? we'll see.
all in all i just couldn't enjoy this film. most of the dialogue was sloppily written, tonal changes were messy, and my suspension of disbelief just didn't happen. i really wanted to enjoy it.... but i couldn't.

I honestly wouldn't have minded a love story, considering how little Asian representation there is in Hollywood, more so in an interracial capacity. I'm not mad either that they opted out of a budding romance but it feels a bit cheap. It would've been a stronger message if the captain was white, it would've come across more intentional and a true cliché dodge. This way it seems like they played it safe - have an asian co-star, people will be happy about the representation enough that they won't mind the lack of romance
