So, are you going to

So, are you going to raid a tomb, or what?
How I learned to stop worrying and love the babe

Well, I saw Lara Croft Tomb Raider II: The Cradle of Life yesterday, and now present my thoughts for your consideration.

First, if you’re expecting a great movie or oscar winning performances, why are you watching a movie with a title that contains nine words and a colon. No oscar winning movie contains nine words and a colon. Movies that you can still find only on VHS have nine words and a colon. The Killer Martian Pod People: Pods that Time Forgot.

That being said, I was not dissapointed with this movie, because it delievered exactly what I expected. Action, Angelina Jolie in a variety of revealing and form-fitting outfits, a plot that makes sense only if you don’t really think about it, ancient technology that far surpasses our own, magic monsters and the now signature weak Tomb Raider ending. Personally, I happen to like action and monsters. If there’s a plot at all, well, that’s icing on the cake.

There are basically no computer graphics in the first hour and a half of the movie, which is a refreshing change. Of course, after that they go all out, which only goes to show, whatever you do, do it as hard as you can and it’ll probably turn out ok.

Also impressive is Angelina Jolie’s determination to do all her own stuntwork. It’s no secret that she did alot of training to prepare for this role in order to make things as real as possible. Anyone who reminds me in any way of Jackie Chan automatically get’s a mark in the plus column when I’m watching a show.

All in all, definetly worth the money, or it would of been, if I hadn’t forgotten my wallet and had a friend pay for my ticket.

Just make sure you go in with realistic expectations, and you’ll have a good time.

And if anyone makes a movie about Killer Martian Pod People that Time Forget, you’re stealing my idea.
