Intrepid archaeologist Lara Croft discovers a mythical clock, bequeathed to her by her father, which, when reunited with the broken and scattered pieces of a magical artefact, has the power to control time. Croft ventures to Cambodia with guns blazing.
Not disastrous, but somewhat disappointing nonetheless. Jolie gives it her all in the title role, but this is proof positive that you can’t breathe new life into the Indiana Jones formula with state-of-the-art FX and big action sequences, unless you also have a coherent screenplay and a cast of characters that the audience cares about.
