I made my simple review of the film, you can read it here.
Corny fight scenes.
Alicia is fine and I love her take on a vulnerable Lara but the script is just messy.
dont look for it as a reminder of the previous versions... a serious take of the game-inspired story..
Something about the movie seems a bit off. Vikander as fabulous as she is, when acting feels really wooden and expressionless, hence why Ex Machina was great casting. All the press for the film was how much she worked out for the film, rather than the average story or script and you can see why. It works pretty good for fitspiration, though.
Alicia is good. She was beaten over and over in this movie and she looks ripped! Those abs!
Alicia Vikander gave a stellar performance as a young Lara Croft. But the first and second act in the film succeeded more in putting me to sleep rather than keep me invested.
