Lara Croft: Tomb Raider

This film is a remake of the early 2000’s version starring Angelina Jolie. First, Alicia Vikander is no Angelina Jolie, but then who is? She is a great update and a badass in her own right. The movie is a worthy remake, with a lot of action and nasty bad guys. Lara goes in search of her father who, of course, is a billionaire explorer bent on saving the world from an evil ghost. He has been lost for seven years and Lara ends up on the island he allegedly died on. As you would expect she is the only one who believes he is alive. Lots of action, some of it even believable with an ending that all but says “and we’re going to make a sequel.” Fun and mindless.
