Action Adventure - This latest Tomb Raider probably isn't the exciting action
adventure most are expecting. Much of it is similar to the first
Tomb Raider, but it seems to have more talking and less
PROFANITY: 2 A-words, 1 S-word. Just a couple others. SEX/NUDITY: Once scene of mild sexual activity. No nudity. VIOLENCE: Lots of killings but certainly nothing graphic. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: None ACTION: Quite a bit, but probably not as much as many expect. COMEDY: Only a few mildly funny remarks.
OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Looks like I wasn't the only one a little disappointed. These opinions are pretty good, but they're certainly not great. About half the audience rated the movie "Very Good" to "Excellent," which indicates they enjoyed it very much. About a quarter of them rated it "Good," which, from our experience, indicates an average or slightly above average movie. The final 25% rated it "Fair," which is getting pretty low.
Overall, I would say, if you're a fan go see The Cradle of Life. If you're not all that big a fan, but tend to enjoy this type of movie, I would still recommend it. I believe your probability of enjoying it, at least to some degree, is quite high.
This one should be seen on the big screen, so at the very least go see it at a matinee or when it comes to the second run theaters.
Cinema Review Prediction: (before moviegoer opinions are collected) I was a little disappointed in this movie. I'm not saying it was bad, because it certainly wasn't. It just wasn't anything special.
Younger moviegoers will likely give it some high opinions, because they tend to be easy to please. Adults will probably rate it above average or maybe a little higher, but I certainly don't expect real high opinions from the majority of moviegoers.
At the very least, I would say it's worth a matinee to be able to see it on the big screen, but mainly for fans. If you're not much of a fan, it's unlikely this movie will convert you.
