The first reason I wanted to watch Tomb Raider was that the first thing I saw about the film — poster or trailer — wasn’t a perky pair of breasts in a really tight tank. I may be one of the very few people who couldn’t really get behind Angelina Jolie’s uber sexy Lara Croft in the two films that she played the popular video game lead, whether she looked exactly like the character or not. Alicia Vikander’s casual look in Tomb Raider is far more appealing. And while the film is not anything to write home about, this is a Lara Croft that I can definitely get behind.
