Despite trying to keep his swashbuckling to a minimum, a threat to California's pending statehood causes the adventure-loving Don Alejandro de la Vega (Antonio Banderas) and his wife, Elena (Catherine Zeta-Jones), to take action.
Off the coast of the volcanic island of Santorini, the intrepid archaeologist, Lara Croft, makes the unexpected discovery of a throbbing golden orb able to guide its holder to the mythical Pandora's Box. As the legendary artefact contains ancient mysteries of unfathomable power, Lara needs to make sure it doesn't fall into the wrong hands, especially the unscrupulous former Nobel Prize winner and now a bio-weapons dealer, Jonathan Reiss. With the aid of the former agent, Terry Sheridan, the fearless adventurer travels the world in pursuit of the precious item; however, can she retrieve it in time to save the day?Written by
The last Tomb Raider movie for 15 years until Tomb Raider (2018) in which Alicia Vikander assumed the role of Lara Croft. See more »
When Lara shoots the computers in Reiss' lab, she only shoots the monitors. All this does is stop displaying what the computer is doing. Many say, that a knowledgeable woman like Lara should know to shoot the processor, not the monitor. However, later Reiss talks about keeping Lara alive as long as they know the computer finishes its translation; Lara only tried to delay Reiss, not to destroy the process (she couldn't do that anyways, since the computer boxes are not visible, and even if they are accessible to shoot, destroying the processors would take more time and effort than Lara had). We even see one monitor unharmed and showing the process bar. See more »
They found another one. There's going to be no treasure left by the time she gets here.

If you're a die hard Indiana Jones fan, or any of those movies that take you all over the world on a great treasure hunt, you will LOVE Tomb Raider! Both movies show a new side to Angelina Jolie, a smart, skilled, self- reliant woman who can kick butt! So the characters don't have 10 dimensions, what person looking to watch a true action flick really CARES if the main character had a rough childhood or not? Not hat it is JUST like those other adventure movies either, yes there native tribesman, booby traps, and lots of bad guys who show up at just the right time, but the places this movie takes you are unique and extremely exotic! Plus when was the last time you saw a movie about Pandora's box, or where the FEMALE lead saves the day? So grab your popcorn and get ready to go for an adventurous ride with Lara Croft, Tomb Raider!
