I saw the thumbnail of the video, I thought to myself "damn, I forgot to download this movie", then I finished the video and I remembered that I did watch the movie...this...this is the kind of flick this is.

Only rich people who have never had to face hardship because of money, think pretending to be poor is cool.

Thank god this video exists, because now I know what happened in the second half of the movie. Honestly, I think I'd have enjoyed it more if it was just a bike courier movie like that Joseph Gordon Levitt film. Just have her go up against a corrupt mp and don't call it a tomb raider film. Call her Laura Crawford or something.

One big disagreement : the rebooted games are fucking dope. Movie sucks though
THE META Před 2 dny
this movie is literally a discount version of the game, why would i spend 2 hours watching Not Lara Croft when i could play Lara Croft? 1 that looks better, sounds better and is overall BETTER? Lara Croft is an intelligent woman who instead of living a life of luxury and comfort, spends her money travelling the world to dangerous places and having adventures where she ends up saving the day ALOT, every part of this character shows how strong and amazing women can be, so why the FUCK did they rob her of that? i mean i thought SJW/WOke/P.C etc people were supposed to cream themselves over a female character like this? so why did they tear her down? cause she's white? sooooo instead of being a powerhungry immortal woman who took over the bodies of other women to sustain her life she's instead some sort of hero? you seriously re-wrote her character to be a GOOD person.......by zombie plague? in the game Himiko is actually a badass, who unapologetically uses young women to sustain herself and then tries to take over her descendents body only for Lara to stop her, THAT was a fucking amazing story and it's ruined by this generic "sealed away great evil" nonsense

Isn’t this loosely based off the videogame?
SupermanKelly™ Před 2 dny
I enjoyed it but expected it to be more of a matured typical Lara in a sequal.

The way events happen around this Laura almost reminds me of Mad Max: Fury Road, but with the genders swapped for the supposed protagonist and their supporting characters. It sounds about as intelligent and captivating as well

Even the TR2013 game story is more compelling and memorable than this one.

@12:46 - as a veteran of the digital world, I appreciated this version for the simple fact that, 90% of what the original Laura did, would have been difficult beyond description with 44DDs (or whatever her "true" measurements were/are. To me, it's the same as having a 4 foot 6 inch dwarf carry a hammer/axe weapon that is 6 foot long (ala World of Warcraft). Clearly a weapon of that size would weigh so much it would be physically impossible to wield by any creature, in any universe. So I appreciate the more modestly endowed Laura in this movie (and the newer Tomb Raider games - Rise of Tomb Raider & Tomb Raider PC) Other than that specific point, I agree with everything else you expressed.

This is a better Uncharted 1 movie than a Tomb Raider movie.

What I remember the angelina jolie version doing well is following a bit of the james bond playbook. I get that she was easy on the eyes, but the Jolie movies were pretty fun to watch.

I watched this video and then through the clips realized that I had already seen this movie. Wow, truly forgettable

12:29 I love how unapologetic the Drinker is in these videos. It's refreshing to see someone with the guts to not be bothered by what others would think. Keep up the good work! :D
DiZ Před 8 dny
It just occurred to me, but this movie took its plot from an episode of "Eureka". "A Town Called Eureka" for you Drinker.

Thor: The Dark World. So forgettable that I watched it a second time because I genuinely didn't remember having watched it. It wasn't just that I forgot what happens in it, I didn't even realise I'd watched it to forget it. And now, knowing I've sat through it twice, I still couldn't tell you a single thing about it.

Dad: Hey Lara, thanks for watching this vid, can you destroy all this research so it doesnt fall in to the wrong hands? cheers! Lara: Why didnt you do it you lazy bastard!?

I don't think The Drinker knows this is supposed to be a young, and inexperienced Lara. The start of the movie is good character building, it shows that she is athletic, and knows how to fight, preparing us for what she does during the rest of the movie. It's almost as if The Drinker just craps on what's popular to unload his blatter onto, instead of giving us a real opinion on this film.

Lara has a lot of potential as a cool, fun, character, and I see Vikander as an inspired choice for the role, but everything went down the drain when the word "realistic" was first uttered by the producers (it could only be worse if they added "gritty" to it). But I guess they went real close to the inspiration, as the new Lara from the game's reboots is really dull and forgettable.
Zentauri7 Před 9 dny
I just rewatched the movie. It's not great indeed, but far from bad. It seems they really wanted to make an adventure movie, but simply did not have any great ideas for a story. A lot of "inspiration" was taken from Indy 3. : The fathers gone missing, fathers child goes on a quest to find him. A book written by the father - containing all his research, hints, discovered traps - that never should fall into the hands of the enemy... falls into the hands of the enemy. And then in the end the fathers child is forced to help the villain, or father get's killed. The traps/ordeals from the fathers book/diary: Indy 3 - The Breath of God - “Only a penitent man will pass” - The Word of God - “Only in the footsteps of God will he proceed” - The Path of God - “Only in the leap from the lion’s head will he prove his worth” Ordeals of Himiku - Cross the Chasm of Souls (like "The Path of God", except you need to bring a ladder) - Pray to Survive the Faces of Himiku (like "The Word of God ", except with crystals instead of letters) - Behold Her Army of 1000 Handmaidens (a lot like "The Breath of God", I believe. Was that the scene with the rotating spiky bars?) - Descend upon Himiko's final resting place (well, the last two where not actually "ordeals") - Unleashing her scourge

I haven’t forgotten about it. I really liked it.
PrtyProductive Před 9 dny
y'know why this movie isn't at all relatable to me? my playstyle. i play the Tomb Raider games like a fucking madman. this iteration has empathy and humanity. 0/10
Give me the sexy Lara who is fun and awesome back. I don't want this dull, skinny woman.

It would be more relatable if she had the money, and used it all up trying to find her father.

At least Angelina is exotic looking. This girl is plain and ordinary looking. No charisma.

So the tomb raider movie copied the plot of the first uncharted game which took inspiration from the tomb raider games? The circle of life??? Edit: Wish I made it to their end before writing this. Already said.
KneeGurr Před 10 dny
Im a simple Man,he says that the series Is a cheap copy of uncharted,I dislike the video
KneeGurr Před 9 dny
@My new channel tomb raider Has a female protagonist,people from ancient tribes and more stealth.Tomb raider has a bit better storyline (dont get angry but i think that in the first 3 uncharted games the story Is pretty lackluster and Has some pretty Big plot holes,while in the forth Game the storyline Is good.And in tomb raider the storyline Is good in in 1 and 3,and it's decent in 2).

I couldn't get through this movie, but they really decided to rip off the end story from the first Nathan Drake game, which is in turn largely a rip off TR games? Maybe I should've watched more than 20 minutes & gotten some giggles.

The thing for me is that the stories of the reboot trilogy games would have worked better with the old Lara in them.

It's insane how hard it is to make movies that make sense. The blueprint is THERE. No need to take out the parts that makes it good. They obviously CANNOT make something better, that ought to be obvious by now. 😑

I've played the first two reboot games and... wtf? She's still rich in the new games and her father was a Lord still. And dead.

first the movie story line is shit the in game story was far better , then they just remaked some scenes from the game just in worse quality and also the actress does not look like Lara Croft at all in this movie she looks like a latina

New movies will just get worse...mindless, stupidity that makes no sense and that FELL good. And this kinda shit is just a waste money.

If you want to see the lead without clothing watch the end of the 2014 movie Ex Machina.

Cíťa Před 18 dny
I never played any of the games, guess I just got stuck with CJ in San Andreas and the game industry just isn't much for me. So I went to see it with a clear mind and I must say, it's not as good as Indiana Jones (honestly, what is?), however, It's not as bad as Captain Marvel and given the circumstances, I happened to like it. Nice adventure movie, yes, kinda generic, but not "girls-are-better-than-men-and-they-win-whatever" generic.
SpotLight Před 18 dny
Wine is fine but Whisky is slicker while toilet duck just gets you f’d 🤷🏻‍♂️
danigar Před 18 dny
I actually liked the movie. It wasn't super great of course and I expected more as a Tomb Raider fan, but I felt like at least it scratched that Indiana Jones type of action adventure movie itch. How many of those are out there that are not super hero movies? And despite its flaws I think it was competently made and I liked Alicias performance

While a somewhat an improvement over the previous ones, this one still had a long way to the real _Tomb Raider_ experience - it just didn't feel like _Tomb Raider_ much. It's not only adapting videogames is difficult - it's mostly people who are given the task aren't passionate and/or talented enough (directors, writers, the studios)... Only an actual fan with good enough moviemaking abilities could make it justice, as he knows and understands its characteristics and the feel after many many hours of playing. I'm still hoping they will do a proper _Tomb Raider_ someday... that really feels like epic adventure, mad archaeology in ancient tombs from ancient civilizations and architecture!
