Movie Review: ‘Tomb Raider’

In 1996, Eidos Interactive put out the first “Tomb Raider” video game. It was wildly successful, spawning several more installments in the game series, action figures, comics, and two feature films with Angelina Jolie as the titular heroine.

So it was a bit of a surprise when video game publisher Square Enix decided to release a reboot of the game in 2013 that transformed the iconic Lara from Kelly LeBrock-esque fantasy babe with breasts bigger than her head and guns holstered to bare thighs, to a sinewy thing who sports practical cargo pants and totes a bow and arrows.
