Tomb raider 2 :Cradle of life, the second part of Lara croft's journey.

When I saw the clip of first episode(part) I really doubt that time if Anjelina jolie suits for that role or not.

When I saw the movie, I realised that any other actress will never fits for this role. For those who don't know about first episode, Lara croft's role is played by Anjelina jolie.

Even though Tomb raider story is ported from Computer game,Making the film on such base is always a big gamble.

Finding right Actors/Actresses for those charcters is huge task.And I think Director/Producer handled this task smoothly/easily.

Tomb raider series will discontinue after this movie I think & we'll not see anjelina jolie as Lara croft.

Even though movie was excellent.Both the episodes unable to capture the wider audience round the world.

Many of the peoples neglected as this movie is ported from Game.

Well as there is very less excitement if compared with games.Many other game stories did well on box office.

Movies like Resident Evil,Mario Brothers etc.done well.Mystery behind the Box isn't hard though,maybe we need more weird mystery.

Maybe If we combine a bit of ''House of Dead'' characters in this movie, maybe it works.


Well as you know Lara Croft is archeological expert always looking for some adventures.

This time she is after Magical box,she need to grab it before any third person can get it.

Mystery of Box is that according to legend it is pandora's box if opened will release worst nightmares.

So she is going to get it before anyone opens it.What happened next?Who reaches to the box first?What are the other ups and downs in the movie?You have to see it.

Excellent story written for Lara croft adventure. Story is pretty much balanced & it's there what you can expect from lara croft advetures.

Arrangement & Acting:-

Movie is well dircted,action scenes are excellent.

Special effects (Ghosts) in the jungle are awesome.Camera skills,tricks are pretty good in this movie.

Sets under water & in the building are arranged very well.Computer created effects are also good to watch.

Communicator Gadgets & effects are awesome.

Anjelina Jolie's Acting was never in doubt.She throws herself into the role in every movie.Acting by other co-artists is good too.


This time the music in the movie is of Drum & Bass type,with bit of rock during action scenes.Soundtrack is not that good if you compare with first part of the movie.

In last movie tracks like ''illuminati'',''Terra ferma'',& Fluke's ''Absurd'' was the main attraction to the soundtrack.This time there is no hit song included in the movie.

Anyway overall soundtrack is nice.

Inside the movie

Well I don't understand why Lara croft is unlucky when it comes turn of good things.Lara croft need to sacrifies something in her life everytime she solves any mystery.

This time she killed her friend in order to keep the box un-opened.

Well lara is not alone with the Rope-hanging thing,in this episode Hero is with her this time.The jump from building is excellent stunt.Reminds me about the sky diving,but they are doing this from tall building.I think the first part was the better one,This time there is no thrill but only fast action scenes are there.80% of lara crofts chase in the movie is for crystalball with the help of which box can be much time wasted for crystal ball & only few minutes of journey in africa solves the mystery.

At the end when villian says that last time some girl opened the box & she cried a lot as she released worst nightmares.but lara croft cries without opening the box,cause she killed her partner who took the box to sell it.This is nice turn of the movie which also ends another Lara crofts relationship.

Well there are few jokes in the movie with lara's friends at the end.Anyway nice movie,All that we can ask from Tomb-Raider movie is there.We can expect more if you really think this mystery wasn't hard.What can I say,another addon for Tomb raider lovers.
