The Movie Mob

**The Cradle of Life is still an outrageous action adventure full of stunts and gunfights, but this time, the style and directing minimize the cliche and maximize the fun!** The Cradle of Life benefits from a larger budget, a new director, and a little less cheese. While this Tomb Raider film still has plenty of ridiculous moments, this time, they are more fantastical than cliche, which for a video game character, feels like a step in the right direction. The first film seemed more influenced by Blade and style Matrix, whereas the sequel takes its cues from Mission: Impossible. Lara Croft is a globe-trotting, gun-wielding, archeological super agent, but even with how larger-than-life that sounds, Angelina Jolie and Jan de Bont make it feel more grounded and believable. I appreciated the more practical feel of the effects and incredible stunts. In addition, Gerard Butler’s duplicitous romantic interest keeps the story more unpredictable and engaging. There were gun battles, exotic locations, plenty of expendable bad guys, and an awesome action heroine kicking butt! I couldn’t ask for more!

Equally as good as the first. It's just like the video game. So there storyline was pretty much made for them. Good movie though.
