I don’t know anything about the game, but I kind of liked the new Tomb Raider movie. It’s certainly weak in many areas, but I’d like to see it do well as a franchise and get better—Indiana Jones type movies are my favorites.

Typos:

"an semi-interactive movie" (I'm guessing that "semi-" was edited in)

"Cosumel" (Cozumel – does the game misspell it?)

"repel" (rappel)

Wow, I am the only person other than the critic who has played it or cares to comment.

I thought the game was tremendous. Your review captures the spirit of the game.

I bought it at the weekend, and I have high hopes for it. I enjoyed Rise, but I am aware that this game got mixed reviews at release. The change of developer is probably why it did.

The first half was fine, the second half was immediately forgettable. The sad part is, I don't even think it generated enough interest to keep the series going (in film at least).

I still prefer the original Angelina Jolie movies. Far more sexy and stylish.

There's actually a sequel coming in 2021, directed by Ben Wheatley (a British director known for the gonzo gangster/horror mashup Hit List and some other well-regarded low-budget films I haven't seen). Haven't seen the new film but I thought the first Tomb Raider with Jolie was fun in a silly, over-the-top sort of way.

Glad to hear a sequel is in the works. I really enjoy Indiana Jones-style adventure movies. Speaking of which, I hear there's another one of those in the works as well.

Yep, I believe May 2021. I’m pumped. I even liked Crystal Skull (minus the Tarzan scene...why??)
