Anyone going to see this movie tomorrow? I personally cannot wait! I loved the first one! I'm looking forward to seeing the scene on the jetski since I after all, love to jetski. The movie looks to be more action packed than the first. I loved the TR games. Do you guys want to see the second installment...are you also a Laura Croft fan or just an Angelina Jolie Fan?

I thought the first film was average...and a bit silly in parts. From what I've heard, they've addressed a lot of the criticisms of the first film, so with any luck it might actually turn out to be good. I can't say I'm fired up to go and see it on the big screen though. I might just wait for a video rental...

1 film sucks, I only watched it to see Angelina. I guess the second would be the same, still I'm looking forward to watch it (she wears such a wonderful grey suit, makes her look like computer-sexy-Lara Croft) although we have it only on the 29th July

Actually, the movies are so far off the games it makes me sick. So I'm all not for those movies.

First one was okay. I loved seeing Smeghead hologram person from Red Dwarf as the bulter person unless I am thinking of another movie. I hope they learn from the mistakes with the first one and make this one totally kick butt.

I will probably wait until HBO unless it gets really good reviews.

How is the movie so far off from the game?

The angel of darkness sucked....so many bugs..constant crashes lockups..the controls were super stiff...less moves than the old tomb raiders had...combat sucked AI sucked story sucked...though I did enjoy myself for some reason playing it when it wasn't crashing...maybe it was just the new game feel ;)

The first movie showed promise, having a high profile actress and an otherwise "Indianna Jones" type situation. The game was roughly based on Indy, but used a smart British chick with a killer body, and dual 45's for weapons. However the film went for worse, it caved in to too many special effects, and other than realistic cercumstances, and came off being the same movie as "Mortal Kombat", another horrible video game movie. Seems video games turned into movies are doomed to fail, but there is always those group of 12 year old boys that live to see Angeline Jolie, a high profile actress, kick alot of CG ass which is why this sequel was made.

I have no desire to see the sequal, because the original was rechid, and the sequal shows little promise.

Sorry.:(

Ok, I'm a huge Lara fan, I've played all of the Tomb Raider games on my PSXOne and loved them.

I have heard very bad reviews about Angel of Darkness even though I was very much looking forward to it, so I decided not to buy it. I would rather keep my Lara gaming memories good ones.

As for the film. OMG, what a pile of poop. It was awful. It was more about what camera angle can we get her to look most sexy in than anything else.

I am truly hoping that Cradle of Life is a vast improvement on the first film. I will watch it out of curiosity and the fact that I am a Lara fan.

Me, my sister and mother do NOT count as twelve year old boys. ^_~

Seriously tho, I loved the first movie. No, it was nowhere close to say Indiana Jones...but I'm rather tolerant I guess. ^_^

It may have helped that I barely knew videogame!Lara existed before seeing the movie. ^^

edit: it's always good to read the first post of the thread before you reply...Yay! STTCT liked it too! Go us! ^_^

remember people it's an american made movie it's always, even subliminaly, targeted to younger people. american culture is about the big things, hype and all that. sadly it's true.

heh heh!
i got the first one for 50p on VCD when i was in hong kong. what a rip off, wish i had spent the money on something remotely decent. :( :mad:

i still can't believe Rimmer lowered himself to be in the 1st one. :D

still, the trailers seem to make it look like they are attempting to fix what was wrong with the 1st, but unless i see it getting great reviews i aint going to bother...

getting a 23% score on rottentomatoes.com at the moment... not a great sign. However i just noticed that Spy Kids 3D is getting poor reviews too, which is far more worrying....

:(
