Shadow of the Tomb Raider Set To Be Released Later This Year

Tomb Raider is, yes, another franchise reboot of a 90s entertainment property, only grittier and more realistic. She's also gotten many women into gaming by giving them a smart, capable and adventurous female avatar to play.

It seems that fans of the new reincarnation of Tomb Raider's heroine, Lara Croft, are not happy at all with certain sexist comments about Alicia Vikander's body in the upcoming movie.

"For all the stigma attached to video-game adaptations, it would be a shame for Tomb Raider's many charms to go forgotten".

"Tomb Raider" is very much an origin story, introducing us to a Lara who hasn't yet raided any tombs. With a lot of Tomb Raider stories the main grab is, of course, the treasure sought after by both the baddies and the goodies and in this, it's the power of an ancient evil.

"What's really important is that you feel Lara Croft as a real character", Uthaug said.

Independent: The film may be based on a video game but we could be back in the world of Ray Harryhausen B-movie matinee adventures of the 1960s and 1970s. "After I got the job, when we were discussing scripts and action scenes and stuff like that, we kept going back to the game to see what they have done and to be inspired".

It also means that "Tomb Raider" is splendid popcorn fodder that stays true to its source material. The film went on to make $275 million worldwide and spawned a sequel, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider - The Cradle of Life. Fortunately, a lot of the fight scenes are done practically and Vikander is shown taking people down to the ground and wielding her pick axe. With this fumble as the first outing, though, it's game over already. But really, take me up on that drinking game.

Also, no one needs a perfunctory father-daughter relationship in a movie that should have ideally been a rip-roaring adventure. As she is about to give in she is given a puzzle that unlocks a clue and a key her father, Lord Richard Croft (Dominic West; The Wire), left for her. Nobody knows what happened to him. Lastly, there's Lu Ren, Lara's companion who joins her on her mission because his father is also missing.

BOTTOM LINE A vast improvement on the Angelina Jolie franchise. By contrast, this Tomb Raider fluctuates between Lara Croft as a capable fighter, a frightened little girl, a killer warrior, an emotional wreck, and a hardened archaeologist. "You actually get to feel that's she's human, and she's open to be vulnerable".

How did you craft a Lara for these times, keeping her grounded yet heroic? (Laughs) She trained with her trainer, Magnus, who worked with Skarsgard for Tarzan.

The spark and personality Vikander shows early on when just hanging with her cycling crew disappears when she starts endlessly jumping, punching and kicking in a tank top and cargo trousers.

Uthaug has at least given the new movie some touches of his own rather than simply replacing Jolie with a younger model for more of the same.

Well, the movie has to come from character. She's incredibly intelligent and resourceful but expectedly inexperienced. You just wonder if it was worth the effort when the storyline the character takes part in is so utterly flimsy. Unfortunately, it's the pacing that doesn't quite work here, with most of the sequences dragging on too long while devoid of any real drama. "To make an artful, interesting story, commercial and big and loud as it should be-that, I think, is the biggest challenge". That's an incredible honor, knowing all the fans out there and their expectations.
