I have to agree on the fact that the great Hollywoodization the films went through made them pretty horrible. That's why we're here today, discussing the last TR games and knowing we'll never get something (only a bit) akin to the Classics.

It's a combination of bad costume choice and the fact that Angelina, unlike most of the official Lara models and several cosplayers, doesn't have the body to pull off wearing Lara Croft type costumes.
It's kind of how not every male actor can pull off wearing a Superman costume or other iconic costumes, because they simply haven't got the body to pull it off in a good way. That's why Angelina was miscast already in the body department. She should have been dropped already in the very first rounds of casting.

They should have started out by only looking at actresses with a body that could successfully pull off wearing Lara Croft costumes, and then should they be looking at other traits like acting capabilities, British accent etc. Basically, common sense should have ruled out Angelina from the very beginning.
Yet what they ended up casting was an American actress with the wrong body type to play Lara Croft. It's probably the biggest casting mistake in movie history.

Then she has the nerve to lie and say she did all her own stunts, when she does about 2% of them.

Have to say, I loved Angelina Jolie as Lara, she was the best thing about the whole movie. I thought she did an amazing job, where most actors would have played her like a caricature. I hope she comes back.

She won't be back.

She's way too old.
