    Tomb Raider (2018) UHD Review
    [​IMG]


    Warner and MGM’s reboot of Tomb Raider arrives on 4K UHD Blu-ray with a stellar transfer, but the movie is seriously lacking in joy and humor.

    I missed this in theaters but my wife was able to see it - her reaction was very similar to yours, that it was technically well made but not as fun as it should have been. Seeing this wasn't a high priority for me but given her response and now your review, I don't feel bad about missing it anymore.

    Yeah, my wife and I are glad we saw Black Panther instead of this, as those were our two choices for date night back in March.

    It's a disappointing movie. I didn't love the Jolie film, but it had some entertainment value, while this one's a bit of a chore to watch.

    Also wasn't impressed by Vikander. She's undeniably talented but she lacked the charisma and strength the part needed.

    She just seemed like a little girl too much of the time and wasn't convincing. Granted, I get this is an "origin story", but she felt too insubstantial and not as tough as needed.

    It's funny to realize that Jolie was younger in 2001 than Vikander is now! Jolie seemed so much older and more mature as Croft than Vikander!

    It's a stellar 4K UHD though - it looks stunning!

    I have updated the section regarding Digital Copy after redeeming my code this morning. Must be UV due to MGM's involvement in the production.

    Let's see. The Jolie movies were basically panned as bad video game films and this one gets panned for actually being serious. The makers of video game movies can't win. They get panned for being stupid and too video game-like or panned for not being campy and stupid enough.
