Video game adventurer Lara Croft comes to life in a movie where she races against time and villains to recover powerful ancient artifacts.
Eleventh highest grossing action film with a woman in the lead role.
The morning after the attack at the mansion the UPS delivery guy enters and steps over a lot of debris, the next scene shows him from the front and the floor behind him is clear and shiny.
There are no opening credits after the title has been shown.
The UK theatrical, video and DVD versions are shorter than the uncut US and international versions, due to BBFC cuts. Cuts were required to what the BBFC called "glamorizing shots" of a flick knife, including the sight and/or sound of the knife opening. These cuts included a close shot of the knife covered in blood in the final fight scene, as well as sight of the knife being twirled by Powell seconds later. Also, the head butt delivered by Lara Croft in the end brawl was completely removed and substituted with a punch. The final deadly throat chop Lara gives Powell was cut for cinema release, but restored for UK video and DVD releases. Although these cuts would have been waived for a 15 certificate the distributors chose to remove the scenes for a lower 12 rating. The Blu-ray release was finally passed uncut, though upgraded to a 15 certificate, in 2009.
