MOVIE TALK - Tomb Raider (2018)
THIS WEEK’S FEATURE PRESENTATION:
Here at Grand Gentlemen, nothing is more important to us than “family time”. Which is why at least once, every week, we loosen our ties and unwind for a wild voyage into the great world of cinema.
This week, my friends, of course... was no different.
For this week’s Feature Presentation, we decided to check out the retelling of the awesome Tomb Raider. With a screenplay written by Geneva Robertson-Dworet and Alastair Siddons and directed by Roar Uthaug we were immediately submerged into a tale of pure determination, shear will and brute strength.
The film stars the amazing and mesmerizing Alicia Vikander as the legendary Lara Croft, who after stumbling upon a clue, seeks to solve the mystery surrounding the disappearance of her father.
This adventure was honestly what we call a “Grade-A ass clincher”. The very second Lara catches wind that her father may be alive, and where he actually may be, it’s on and cracking. And let me tell you... it’s definitely no walk in the park to get to the Devil’s Sea, I’ll tell you that.
After literally riding into a hurricane, and being stuck on an island chock full of horrors, including the great Walton Goggins, who is once again the ultimate villain, Lara uses all of her might in order to survive.
Nothing is better than sitting as the credits roll, knowing you paid good money to see a decent ass kicking. And believe you me... a decent ass kicking is exactly what Alicia hands out as Lara Croft in this year’s Tomb Raider!
We at Grand Gentlemen give this marvelous masterpiece and it’s amazing cast and crew four out of four bowties!
