| Better the second time around
When I first watches this movie, I'm not sure why I didn't enjoy it. It could be just that I was in the wrong mood. However, I did find the movie lacking a convincing villain challenging enough to make you root for the heroine. Indiana Jones had a good villain, Jackie Chan movies always pit him against the odds - that's what makes for good action. In Tomb Raider, not only is it clear to everyone that Lara Croft is greater than the villains by a long shot, worse still - she joins forces with them! This creates a confusing scenario where natural sympathies for the main character get thrown out the window.

However when I watched it the second time, this time without any preconceived notions and fully expecting the lack of exciting odds, I really enjoyed it for what it is - a visually appealing film with some thrilling stunts and action scenes. The fact that Angelina did her own stunts adds to the enjoyability of the key action scenes, all of which are artfully conceived and executed.

I realize many people toast this movie, but watch the movie for what it offers - some unique and stylish action. The heroine certainly does some nifty tricks that we've never seen on the big screen before, let alone from a female character.
