Tomb Raider: Anniversary was one of Angelina Jolie’s first big roles and the action-packed film thrust her into near-blandry land and branded her as a powerful lady capable of tackling tough dude films. The movie turned out to be a box office smash and Jolie, who played her first non-topscore role, enjoyed an eight-year career that would end with four more films. Let’s take a look at those.
Tomb Raider: Anniversary is the first installment of the horror filmials of Tomb Raider. Now with a new chapter, Angelina Jolie returns as Tomb Raider. The heroine this time is the daughter from a wealthy family living in Los Angeles. When her best friend is killed, she assumes the role of protector and seeks out her own personal guru, a man who can help her find her long lost father.
Tomb Raider Anniversary continues the story of the original video game. It picks up just after the events in the second game and allows us to revisit our ‘protector’ duties. The plot centers around the evil plans of a group scientists trying to create a videogame using cloning. This means that instead of just being an ordinary gamer, Angelina must now play the role of the savior of mankind. You’ll enjoy Anniversary if you liked Tomb Raider. It includes cut scenes from the original game.
Tomb Raider: After Rise 3 is the third installment of the Tomb Raider saga. Angelina Jolie plays the role of the heroine. This time, we see that with the help of a mysterious video game (not this one, though) she’s able to save the world instead of just her own life. While the story is similar to the original, this game adds some interesting twists. Tomb raider: After Rise not only has Angelina Jolie in the lead role, but she also co-stars Dylan O’Brien, Ki Hong Lee and Dexter Darden.
Although it’s not necessary to know everything about the first Tomb Raider video game before you watch the sequel, those who have played the original game know how complex and difficult the game was. Tomb Raider 2: After Rise is a sequel that retains the appeal of the original, but still makes it enjoyable for modern fans. Because the film continues the familiar science fiction tale that has been told so many times, it’s easy to understand why. For someone who grew up reading science fiction, it’s easy to understand why this type of movie would become such a hit.
This is evident in Tomb Raider, which started out as something everyone was talking about. The first movie involved a team of researchers that were searching for a mythical metal called “The orb”. The team needed the orb to activate an energy portal to take them to safety. Unfortunately, they didn’t find it in time. Because of this failure, the team members were stranded on an alien planet with no means of travel. They had to rely upon others for survival until help arrived because of their limited resources.
The film’s main storyline revolved around a science-fiction adventure. Angelina Jolie, however, didn’t let this stop her from casting her role. Despite having small roles in previous science fiction flicks, Angelina Jolie seemed like she was completely prepared for her role in the first Tomb raider video game. It may have just been a small role, but to someone who was unaware of the role ahead of time, it seemed like she was a perfect fit. Angelina Jolie, who has a history and relationship with Tomb Raiders before this film, was the perfect choice for Lara Croft.
It did not help Tomb Raider’s story and is likely why Angelina Jolie was chosen to play the leading role. However, the film did do her a world of good as she was able to channel her anger and frustration from the film into one of the best acting performances of her career. The movie did not do well at the box office but it did bring in a lot of money thanks to its marketing and ticket sales. Angelina Jolie gives another outstanding performance as the annoying, foul-tempered tomb raider.
