Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life
2003
Thrill seeker Lara Croft journeys to an underwater temple, where she finds a sphere that contains a map pointing to the mythical Pandora's Box. But the orb is promptly stolen by the leader of a Chinese crime syndicate.

Scott Hardie: “It sucked.”

I take it from her Academy Award that Jolie is capable of acting, but she doesn't seem capable of any expression here at all, unable even to scrunch up her face when delivering a punch. Too much plastic surgery? Her laziness and disinterest characterize the whole film, which coasts on its few good ideas and exotic locations, but is riddled with needless plot holes and boring interpersonal conflict. I'm getting very tired of action spectacles with a grand sense of art direction but a half-ounce of care given to writing or acting.
