Angie as Tomb Raider. Wow. It took me to about half way through to make the leap of faith and accept her in the role but perhaps that was down to me and not letting go of the girl in the game and the various models who did the promos. Her accent if flawless and she has a good bod for the part. I just didn’t see how anyone could be the girl of my games.

It’s not about the game though, this is Hollywood and very, very cheesy. Angie’s own dad playing, get this, her dad in the film! By the way, has anyone noticed that he does the same role in that awful crap piece of bull called National Treasure? Anyway, the Croft family takes on the world and turns up some special gun moves as well as more effects. Ends up being good fun travelling across the globe with a girl as the creeper-swinging heroine.

Well made and rubbish plot. I’d still watch it again at Christmas.

Can’t remember a thing about the extras on the DVD. Guess they were that memorable.

Keep DVD?
For a while I did but didn’t ever feel like watching it. I did watch on TV though. Got rid of the DVD. Sorry, Lara, not everything is good enough for my collection.
Watch if on TV?
Snog, Marry, Avoid?
Snog in her black shorts and tight shirt. She can wear what she wants too.
