"Angelina excels as the
confident and sexy tomb raider"
"stunningly attractive, Angelina Jolie was born to play this
"a sort of Indiana Jones for the lads-mags generation"
Lara Croft Tomb Raider - Special Collector's
with Angeline Jolie and Jon Voight
British aristocrat, Lara Croft, is highly trained in
combat skills and regularly puts them to the test with the help of a robot
called Simon. On the anniversary of her father's death Lara comes up
against a sinister organisation who intend to steal an ancient relic in
order to control time. The organisation, called the Illuminati, firstly
needs to retrieve a key, which just happens to be in Lara's mansion. Can
Lara get to the relic first and save the world...?
Angelina Jolie is the first and best reason to watch Lara
Croft Tomb Raider. She gives an extraordinarily committed, physically
demanding performance, taking on the mantle of the video game heroine with
real conviction and energy, and becoming the embodiment of every fantasy female. She's tough, sexy and tomboyish all
at the same time, and even has a plummy English accent to give her a touch
of class. A juggernaut of computer-generated effects and characters, the the action
sequences are choreographed spectacularly enough, and their impact is boosted hugely by
Jolie's ability to perform almost all the stunt work herself.
On the DVD: There is plenty of additional material to keep
Lara fans happy. The widescreen picture and thumping surround
soundtrack are impressive too.
