✔     Introduction

Dear Friends, I hope you are doing fine and having a good time on bitlanders.  Today, I have come up with my another new blog with the title of "Movie Review - Tomb Raider" which is actually a movie review of new Hollywood movie "Tomb Raider".  This movie is another addition into famous Tomb Raider movie series.  All the previous movies of this series have been Box Office Hits and generated a lot of revenues as well as fame for its actors and teams.  This film has been directed by a Norwegian Director Roar Uthaug.  This new movie "Tomb Raider" is based on the 2013 video game of the same name and has been doing quite a good business just like previous movies of the Tomb Raider film series.  This film is a great adventure movie and is recommended for all movie lovers who like adventure and action films.  This movie should be watched with friends and family members if you want to have a good time.  I liked this movie very much, its previous version in which Angelina Jolie starred was also a very good movie.  I am pretty sure that you will like this movie as well.  Let's have a deeper look into this adventure and action movie and review its content, picturization and production.

Much of the effectiveness of “Tomb Raider” comes down to a fresh but old-fashioned idea: the decision by Roar Uthaug to shoot a movie that pivots around omens, curses, jade amulets, and Spielbergian rock formations not as a glossy swashbuckling cliffhanger — even though that’s what it is — but as a “realistic” thriller that might actually be taking place. Instead of pummeling us with the outlandish, “Tomb Raider” lures us into suspending our disbelief. Some may find its scrappy, earthbound style a touch drab, but the film’s intense likability is that it’s a kick-ass reverie of feminine power that’s only too happy to be life-size.

Since Lara Croft's father is in captivation of Mathias Vogel inside Himiko's tomb, he forces Lara Croft to open the tomb of Himiko.  The search ensues for Himiko's tomb and after crossing a lot of hurdles, they managed to find sarcophagus inside Himiko's tomb.  In greed, soldiers of Trinity attempt to steal the corpse of Himiko but suddenly, because of super-natural powers of Himiko, their body starts to disintegrate due to a virus inside Himiko' sarcophagus.  Seeing this, Mathias Vogel just manages to detach a finger from the corpse and hides it before starting to run away.  The infection spreads inside the tomb and Lara's father Richard gets infected and he knows that only way to stop this virus from spreading throughout the world is to destroy the whole Himiko's tomb.  Meanwhile, Lara chases Mathias Vogel and fights with him, soon she over-powers him and forces him to gulp down the detached and stolen finger of Himiko which triggers the virus inside Mathias Vogel's body.  Lara Croft then kicks Mathias Vogel in a deep hole in the earth's surface to get rid of him.
