Good action movie. Fast pace. The action was good but the plot so so. The movie left the ending hanging, thus 3.5 ratings. If the ending were better, I would have given 4.

Lara Croft is the daughter of an adventurer who goes missing. To find her father she goes on a search. This movie is insanely good, it has a lot of action and adventure, and a great storyline. I was never bored while watching this movie. The actors were really good, and Alicia Vikander who plays Lara Croft, did an incredible job. This movie is a must-watch if you’re looking for a movie that has action, adventure, and mystery. This movie is 2 hours long, but I didn’t feel like I wasted my time because it was such a great movie. I would rate this show a 5/5. @Khutoria of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

3 1/2 stars , because this is a video game movie, which means its all action, light on plot and thats ok.
- a decent action movie
- better then most "video game movies"
- rent, do not buy, its a one time watch action movie

A young Lara Croft works out at a gym she cannot afford and works as a bike courier (wait, I thought she shoot up wild animals with guns, oh wait, that comes later). She finds out she is the heir to a fortune, but is also missing a father figure. In what might be the best attempt to build character arc, we see Lara Croft make a decision to go search for her father, she gets on board a large boat and goes to sea with a new companion to search for her dad. The movie turns into an adventure movie or if I wanted to use video game terminology, a cut scene.
Some people are going to hate this movie, they may even say that Indiana Jones is the superior movie if you want to see someone go on an adventure in search of ancient artifacts. Considering that the early Tomb Raider games were about some Posh British woman who went off and killed things, in order to retrieve some lost artifact (she is a raider, not a professor), I think this movie atleast gives Lara more motivation.

A prior commenter said "just meh". That's about right. This could have been a lot better. I watched most of it at 1.5x speed on my DVR, and that lessened the disappointment. I always like Alicia Vikander (who plays Lara), so it wasn't a total loss. Watch this if you can't find something better on the shelf, so to speak.

Just awful! Computer graphics ridiculously poorly executed. As bad as today's Disney animation. Unoriginal, stupid script. Sad to see Kristen Scott Thomas - in desperate need of a good meal - and Jimmy McNulty and even Walton Goggins so hard up for work that they ended up in this mess.

Starts out with young women beating the hell out of each other then declines even further.

Will never understand how people descend to such a level.

For those in need of epic struggles, hie it to the Hollow Crown - anything but this garbage.

Tomb Raider is that kind of film which should be watched, when you are thriving for an action-packed film. It is interesting how there is a huge plot twist till the end, which I deeply enjoyed. I thought that maybe they could have included some game references to make it a little more interesting but other wise it was great. I also enjoyed how there was always action scenes here and there. I feel like Alicia Vikander played the role of Lara Croft very well. Watching this movie is a great way to spend your time. I hope that in the future there will be a second movie. A solid 4 star. @SirAbstractCanvas of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

Rated 8/10. I thought this was pretty good overall. Alicia Vikander does a decent job as Lara Croft.

The action scenes are top notch.

I'm hoping that there will be a sequel to this, but so far there doesn't seem to be anything in the works.

Wasn't great - wasn't bad - just meh. Honestly you can probably go on YouTube - look for the video game clips of this game (which are amazing) and find a more enjoyable time with more like-able characters. This is a movie you watch when there's nothing else to watch.

Saw it in the theater and stayed to the end. Lots of action and it must have been a lot of work to produce. If you like action movies from start to finish then you may like this one. Lots of imagination went into this movie.

Do you remember the old Lara Croft with Angelina Jolie? Well, forget her. This one is way more dark. The plot was not like the other ones. Unless you are a huge Croft fan, this movie is not worth your time. The CGI was good, though.
