Angelina Jolie did her own bungee-ballet, and according to an interview with her on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno (1992) , injured her ankle on the first take when landing on top of a chandelier went bad, so that part of the scene had to be done over again after she recovered. See more »

In the next shot he is clearly seen to the left of the screen with his shirt back on as the wall topples down, jumping up and down and shouting something. See more »

Original version of the film included another shower scene where Lara is showering in an outdoor location near some big plants. This scene is shown being filmed in the "Digging Into Tomb Raider" making-of. Nude versions of shower scenes and one where Lara throws her towel away were filmed with nude body double of Angelina Jolie, but all scenes were cut for PG-13 rating. See more »
If you are 10-12 yrs. of age you probably will enjoy this film. Accents coming and going, lame action sequences, and terrible direction.
I rather enjoy the game and yes, Jolie IS Lara, but this film was a let down. To bad Chris Barrie didn't have a bigger part. If you see this film expecting nothing, you may come away slightly relieved when it is over. Personally if I had the chance to do it over, I'd wait 'til bbc aired it for free.
