Tomb Raider ★★★½

I was a Tomb Raider kid. I would run and jump around Croft Manor, climb up fireplaces, do obstacle courses to unlock the super secret quad bike and, of course, lock the butler in the freezer. I wanted to be Lara Croft so damn badly. She truly was my first introduction to what a female heroine can be.

Is this everything I wanted in a Tomb Raider movie? ... not quite. However! It did have edge-of-your-seat action, an intriguing enough plot and a hell of a strong female lead at the helm. Please let this make enough money to warrant a sequel because goddammit I need it.
