This Cradle Rocks! - Thelma Adams, US WEEKLY/CNN-AMERICAN MORNING Oscar winner* Angelina Jolie "is even sexier than in the first Tomb Raider."** Lara Croft (Jolie) is back in action and faces her most perilous mission: to recover what ancient civilization believed to be the essence of all evil, Pandora's Box.

For this adventure, Lara recruits her ex-partner - Terry Sheridan (Gerard Butler) - a dangerous mercenary who has previously betrayed Lara and their country. She knows he's the best for the mission, but can she trust him again? Join her as she races through furious hand-to-hand battles, blazing shoot-outs and breathtaking sky-diving escapes to try to save the ancient artifact...and mankind's future. * - 1999 Best Supporting Actress, Girl Interrupted.

this one seem more silly than the first, here you have [Miss Croft] Angelina Jolie siting on a horse sideways
and shooting at targets while she's moving, and hitting every bulls-eye dead center,the others I will not mention,
looking for Pandora's box, consider to be ancient civilization essence of all evil, some of the stunts in this
movie is to the extreme, Ciarán Hinds the maniacal scientist, Whose plan is to use it for mass destruction of
all mankind, Lara has to stop him before he does,
the voice over for this is very low,considering it's in High Definition, that compounded this already silly movie,
5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio
Runtime 117 Minutes.
Silly isn't The Word. More like Showing off.

Of course, having Angelina Jolie as Lara Croft to watch is a bonus.
The film starts at a pace, as, after an earthquake, a temple built by Alexander the Great becomes accessible after many years cut off by the sea On Santorini island, Greece.
Lara and her team investigate the 'Luna Temple' finding it to house many treasures including a glowing orb which it is reputed unlocks the whereabouts of the legendary some believe mythical '
However, the orb is snatched from Lara's grasp by a group that has followed her and her team to the location, her team and several of the following group die, Lara escapes.
Lara insists on having former friend and perhaps lover Terry Sheridan (Gerard Butler) released from imprisonment to help her track down the orb.
She'll never entirely trust him but he will prove a useful ally, however, there is competition in the search for the orb and the secrets it holds Jonathan Reiss (Ciarán Hinds ) a ruthless criminal with the misuse of 'Pandora's Box' and its power if discovered.
Reiss manages to get hold of the orb and gets pretty close to unlocking its secrets, however, Lara and Terry are close by.
With the help of friend and associate Bryce (Noah Taylor) a high-tech computer whiz Lara learns of the location of the legendary cradle of life where the box is.
She heads to Kilimanjaro without Terry who she felt should have killed Reiss when he clearly had the opportunity to do and with help persuades the tribesmen guarding the sacred site to show her the way.
However, Reiss and his henchmen are not far behind, fortunately neither is Terry who has been able to discover where Lara had gone.
With legendary creatures guarding the way, Lara accompanied by Reiss finds her way into the maze which is the cradle of life and where the box has laid safe for many a century.
Lara knows the box must not fall into Reiss's hands and should never be opened, however, Reiss has other ideas, fortunately for Lara, Terry has also found his way into the complex but, after helping her will show his true intent.
Will Lara escape the complex and leave Pandora's Box where it belongs?
A superb action-packed adventure, certainly worth another viewing especially i
Unlike the original, this starts with a relaxed pace and spends time developing a plot. It also plays as a more continuous story, rather than scenes bundled together. Angelina Jolie also seems much more at ease [hence more convincing] and has a more 'James Bond' or 'Romancing the Stone' feel than Indiana Jones.
Opening to a 12 language selection screen [mainly Scandinavian and eastern European] it then goes to main menu offering play, audio options [cesky or English], subtitles [mainly Baltic states and eastern European –no major European languages other than English and English for hard of hearing], special features [commentary, deleted scenes, featurettes, screen test, music video, DVD-ROM] and scene selection. Rated 12, this lacks much of the overt sensuality of the original but still contains some mild swearing and many scenes of adventure type violence, appearing more mainstream cinema than a computer game clone like the original. A good all round family action movie, but lacks the pace of the original.
We've seen a quality reboot of many films recently - Spiderman, Bond, Superman - which fixed what was wrong in the earlier outings, it would be good to see the same happen with TR, especially with some very decent games coming out in the series in recent years.
