Christian Louboutin “Angelina Jolie” Maleficent May 2014

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. It was a huge success and Jolie, in her first non-topscore film, had an eight-year-long career. She would go on to star in four more films. Let’s look at them.

First up is Tomb Raider: Anniversary, a follow-up on the successful horror filmials of Tomb Raider. Angelina Jolie is back as Tomb Raider in a new chapter. This time, the heroine is the daughter of a wealthy family who lives in Los Angeles. She assumes the role as protector after her best friend is murdered and searches for her personal guru who can help her find her father.

Tomb Raider Anniversary follows the plot of the first video game, and while it picks up shortly after the events of the second game, we get to revisit the ‘protector’ duties once again. The story revolves around the evil plans of a group of scientists who are trying to make a video game out of cloning. Angelina is now required to play the role as the hero of humanity, rather than being a normal gamer. If you like Tomb Raider then you’ll love Anniversary, as it includes some of the cut scenes from the first game.

Tomb Raider: After Rise is the third installment in the saga of the Tomb Raider series and Angelina Jolie returns as the heroine. We see her save the world with the help of a strange video game (not this one though). The storyline is the same as that of the first game, but this version adds a few 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. Fortunately, Tomb Raider: After Rise manages to maintain the interest of fans of the original while still managing to be enjoyable for a modern fan. The reason why is because the film follows the well-known science fiction tale that’s been told many times over. It’s not difficult to see why science fiction movies would be so popular if you grew up reading it.

This is evident in Tomb Raider, which started out as something everyone was talking about. The story of a group of researchers who were looking for mythical metal “The orb” was the basis of the first movie. They needed it to activate an energy portal that would take them to safety, but unfortunately, they weren’t able to 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.

Although the main story line of the film revolved around a science fiction adventure, the lead character of Angelina Jolie certainly didn’t let that rule out of her mind when casting her movie 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. It also made perfect sense that Angelina Jolie was perfect for the part of Lara Croft, given her own background and relationship with the Tomb raider franchise prior to this film.

It did not help Tomb Raider’s story and is likely why Angelina Jolie was chosen to play the leading role. The film was good for her as she was able channel her frustrations and anger into one of her best acting performances. Although the movie failed at the box office, it did rake in an incredible amount of revenue thanks to excellent marketing and ticket sales. In the end, it can be said that Angelina Jolie delivers another great performance as the foul-tempered and slightly annoying tomb raider.
