Most folks definitely won't agree with that, not even critics. Tomb Raider by Angelina is regarded as the best video game adaptation so far. Nobody has come close to making a movie based on a video game like Tomb Raider had.

One movie being great out of of three isn't too bad.. better than what the Fantastic 4 franchise got, all three movies were meh.

It's like the Margot Robbie Harley Quinn movies' quality in reverse..

Suicide Squad: what?
Birds of Prey: why
The Suicide Squad: this movie kicks ass

Lara Croft: Tomb Raider: this movie kicks ass
Cradle of Life: what?
Tomb Raider 2018: why


Edit- ^yes! The first Silent Hill movie was pretty chilling

All 3 TR films suffer the same detriment of having a man by Lara's side or needing one in order to make the adventure feel complete. LC:TR and 2018 do it better though. CoL has some wonderful set-pieces and I think I'd love it if not for Terry Sheridan, but unfortunately his character reduces the film to schlock.

Birds of Prey is great, imo

I just think video game movies in general are garbo, and Tomb Raider isn't immune to that. The only I slightly enjoyed was the first Jolie movie. The rest are horrifying pieces of rhino excrement that I regret even looking at. I wouldn't even mind if they don't make another movie, but it's just my humble opinion.

The leaked scrip is not bad at all it was just read in some dirty circumstances some people are overreacting

Idk if I can say all of this but I’ll say it anyway

The scrip is really minuscule I mean it’s only narrate two scenes where is Lara and two friends going through some traps and she looks pretty smart, sassy, confident and careful about her friends this is not in the scrip but the leak mention that they want a real British actress who knows and understand her old legacy and the fact she wants to preserve the old artifacts and the fantasy elements with a grounded tone and she is on the top of her career and inspired many people I like all that and doesn’t sound bad to me
And no she doesn’t “struggle with loneliness” that’s some thing that someone created out of context to make the script look dirty

I don't think TR is well suited for the current AAA climate. It would do better as a lower budget tile.

I have a super selfish opinion!

Since busting out my PC copies of the classics and setting it up in a way perfect for me I do not care about remakes/remasters anymore. I don't think they would do anything to help unite the fanbase and I don't think they would do particularly well financially.

So.. now I'm not so much about reliving and reloving the past as fixing Lara's character moving forward
