Hardcore survival in rain-lashed jungles and death-defying leaps: these are some of the elements of the high-action, thrilling adventures of the next gen Lara Croft. Alicia Vikander does an excellent job toughing it out as the famous archaeologist’s daughter in Tomb Raider, the third film to be made based on the popular video game series. Although it does not measure up to the lavish scale we've come to expect, Tomb Raider is an okay film. Audiences will enjoy it more if they see it as enjoyable escapism, not as a true-to-heart homage to the video games.
