Her legend begins.

Lara Croft is barely making a living as a bike courier in London. She is the daughter of archaeologist and global financial magnate Lord Richard Croft, who has mysteriously vanished seven years ago and is believed to be dead. When she finally accepts to claim her inheritance of Croft Manor, her father’s country estate, she finds a video message of him detailing his search for the tomb of the ancient mythical Queen Himiko. Although he explicitly warns her, she decides to finally solve the puzzle of his mysterious death.

After her ship from Hong Kong capsizes in a storm, Lara is washed ashore and taken prisoner by a man called Mathias Vogel. Vogel, who is leader of an expedition to discover Himiko’s tomb, is on a quest to weaponize the mystical queen’s powers. He claims to have killed Lara’s father himself and forces her to help him.

She is able to escape, but Vogel’s men are on her heels. Determined to stop him and his evil plans, Lara has to find help on this deserted island to have any chance of success.

If you’re coming to “Tomb Raider”, you’re not coming for the common sense. You’re coming for the action sequences. Luckily, Vikander kills in every segment she’s in. (812filmreviews)
