Shadow of the Tomb Raider Will Deliver Lara Croft's Defining Moment

Lara has a wounded relationship with her missing dad, whom she hasn't even been able to mourn because he had disappeared when Lara was 13.

There are many ways for a movie to go wrong, and "Tomb Raider" goes wrong in numerous most obvious: It has a generic story, bad writing, a miscast lead, the wrong director and no fun.

Describing the events of "Tomb Raider", this boredom probably sounds tough to imagine. I found the training and muscle-building to be empowering.

Tomb Raider opens in cinemas tomorrow. Although she wasn't the first choice to play Lara Croft, Angelina Jolie beat out, most notably, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Famke Janssen, Jennifer Lopez, Rhona Mitra, Elizabeth Hurley, Ashley Judd, Sandra Bullock, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Diane Lane, Demi Moore and Denise Richards, among others.

But over the last few weeks, Alicia Vikander has been subjected to vile sexist abuse by online trolls who claim that her "boobs aren't big enough for the job".

"She was there in just her tank top and she was soaked in water and it got really cold and she turned nearly blue", he says.


She was brought up mainly by her mother after her parents separated when she was two-months-old.

Alicia's performance was critically acclaimed and she was awarded the Academy Award and the Screen Actors Guild Award for Best Supporting Actress.

Lara realizes that if she's to move on with her life, she must solve the mystery of her father's disappearance. "So, I really was intrigued to do the physical part of stepping into this role". Let us know your picks in th comments below.

Lara's mission takes her to a fabled tomb on a mythical island off the coast of Japan - and the fearless and sassy young woman has to overcome deadly obstacles, battle against enemies and the elements, and solve mysterious puzzles.

Square Enix is said to have invited some reporters to see and experience firsthand the Shadow of the Tomb Raider in Montreal. Did you attend past year? She's a Hamlet-quoting, kickboxing Deliveroo rider until she stumbles upon a secret clue left behind by her dead archaeologist father (played by sepia-toned Dominic West, who shows up about every three minutes in a maudlin flashback). (A line that I read as a subtle rebuke to her more top-heavy predecessor.) Not sufficiently worn out by that, she then puts in a shift as a bicycle courier and, as an encore, competes in a pedal-powered race through the streets of London.
