Lara Croft: Tomb Raider synopsis:
Exploring lost empires, finding priceless treasures, punishing villains in mortal combat… it’s all in a day’s work for adventurer Lara Croft (Angelina Jolie). But a secret from her father’s (Jon Voight) past is about to lead Lara to her greatest challenge: The Triangle of Light, a legendary artifact with the power to alter space and time. Lara must find the Triangle before it falls into the clutches of the Illumnati, a secret society bent on world domination.
Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life synopsis:
Lara Croft (Angelina Jolie) is back in action and faces her most perilous mission: to recover what ancient civilization believed to be the essence of all evil, Pandora’s Box. She must travel the globe, from Greece to Hong Kong to Kenya and beyond to get to the box before it’s found by a maniacal scientist (Ciarán Hinds) whose plan is to use it for mass annihilation.
I can’t believe it’s been 20 years since the first film’s release!
I’m not a gamer, but I enjoyed the films and subsequent comics. She’s a female Indiana Jones that is amazingly athletic as well. These movies are action-packed and exciting. With plenty of humor, suspense, mystery, mysticism, and crazy fight scenes – they are still a lot of fun to watch. And the new 4K releases are fantastic. I was happy to replace my old DVD copies with this new, hi-res update.
