Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life

Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life Summary and Synopsis

This Cradle Rocks! - Thelma Adams, US Weekly / CNN-American Morning Oscar winner Angelina Jolie "is even sexier than in the first Tomb Raider." Lara Croft (Jolie) is back in action and faces her most perilous mission: to recover what ancient civilization believed to be the essence of all evil, Pandora's Box. She must travel the globe, from Greece to Hong Kong to Kenya and beyond to get to the box before it's found by a maniacal scientist (Ciarán Hinds) whose plan is to use it for mass annihilation. For this adventure, Lara recruits her ex-partner - Terry Sheridan (Gerard Butler) - a dangerous mercenary who has previously betrayed Lara and their country. She knows he's the best for the mission, but can she trust him again? Join her as she races through furious hand-to-hand battles, blazing shoot-outs and breathtaking sky-diving escapes to try to save the ancient artifact...and mankind's future. Lara Croft ventures to an underwater temple in search of the mythological Pandora's Box but, after securing it, it is promptly stolen by the villainous leader of a Chinese crime syndicate. Lara must recover the box before the syndicate's evil mastermind uses it to construct a weapon of catastrophic capabilities. Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life Wiki

- HD Bundle- Tomb Raider Movies3 star

Wish iTunes would put both of these movies in a bundle for $9.99

- All you could want in an action flick5 star

It never ceases to amaze me how out of touch the "professional" critics can be with the general movie watching public. Is this CITIZEN KANE, of course not. Is it a very entertaining 2 hours ? You bet it is.

- Be realistic4 star

Most people aren't coming to watch this to have some complicated erudite movie. The action is good, plot interesting and fast paced. I am a Lara Croft fan and I thought she did an admirable job. One of the few good video game to movie adaptations. So just sit back and let yourself enjoy it without picking it to little pieces. It is not everyone's cup of tea but I thoroughly enjoyed it. Just my two cents.

- Not the Strongest Tomb Raider Sequel3 star

I love the Tomb Raider 2 game. That was enjoyable, and mostly, a challenge. This movie, on the other hand, was not the same story. Angelina Jolie is great as Lara, but it seemed like she sleptwalk in a few scenes. It's almost like she put no real devotion to her character like she did in the first film. Plus, I don't really like Gerald Butler. He was good in 300, but he just makes no big importance in the film industry. The two characters Bryce and Hilly did not have a big role in this film, so that was a bummer. Plus, you just tried to sit through it thinking, "When is she ever going to find Pandora's Box?" It had it's cool moments, but it wasn't as great as the first movie.

- Not the best sequel but its okay3 star

Not the best sequel but its okay

- Hate Angelina4 star

I hate her but this is a good movie.

- I'm in love5 star

Angelin Jolie and Gerard butler are two of my favorite actors so both of them together kicking butt was just amazing! Way better than the 1st one so it's one of my favorite movies

- wow bad1 star

i wish i could give this movie a zero

- Urg3 star

It didn't freakin finish loading the darn thing is missing the last half an hour of the movie and I freakin paid for the damn I am so pissed

- Better than the first. But not by much...2 star

This may be worth a rental. If you are looking for a typical Action/Adventure movie. The special effects are okay, but the main character still lacks credibility. The action sequences are top notch, but still exaggerated to a large degree. Rent it, do not buy.

- OMGZ5 star

thiz movie waz awesomez!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I recommend it to all those tomb raider and gun shooting fans!!!!! 5 thumbs up (if i had any) LOLZ XDD GO LARA CROFT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

- Lara croft forever5 star

Extremely good movie for a die-hard tomb raider fan!!!

- Horrible1 star

Bad acting. Lame plot. Poor cinematography. Horrible movie. Don't waste your time.

- Awsome5 star

This movie is so awsome! Even though I like the first 1 better, this one rocks! By the way, they listed the directors backwards, its not Simon West. Its Jan De Bont.

- No difference3 star

Wow, even more predictable. Once again Boob Raider comes to dissapoint. The acting isn't half bad but it is still way too dumb. The Tomb Raider game franchise has gone down hill and it's all because of these movies.

- Lara Croft + Angelina Jolie = GIRLPOWER5 star

Angelina Jolie is a amazing actress and she's the best. Her character in the Tomb Raider was so awsome!! I love action movies and Lara Croft is like the best adventure woman and she's the best. The game Tomb Raider Underworld was amazing and it was super awsome the ending but it was sad that Lara didn't see her mother. That's sad. The movie rocks and the games of Tomb Raider rocks 2 also. Angelina Jolie is the perfect role as Lara Croft!!! 5 STARS!!!

- sweet5 star

not as good as the first but still, angie is awsome!!

- hmm....5 star

well i love this movie, however i don't think danitl craig is in it. he's in the first one: laura croft: tomb raider. so if you're a danial craig fan, he isn't in this one. :) HOWEVER! I LOVE THIS MOVIE!!!!! it's worth the 10 bucks to buy it :)

- GREAT5 star

one of my favorites... better than the first.

- Lara rules!5 star

lara croft is amazing. Angelina was the perfect part for lara. This such a cool film give it a high rating

- sweet5 star

this is a great movie and having angelina in it is even better. She is hot. But iTunes i was wondering why you don't have Mr. and Mrs. Smith as one of her movies.

- tomb raider5 star

bad video game unless you have the walk through, but a fun good time movie you'll whant to see again!


I have been a tomb raider fan since i was 5.This movie is the best.Lots of action and stunts.This movie deserves a 5 star rating.Who ever likes the game watch this movie.Or who ever never heard it watch it u wont be upset with the movie.

- Another Bad Sequel...1 star

Well, there are very few films with great sequels to great originals, and Tomb Raider ain't one of 'em. The action is....................... yawn. The plot is............................................................ yawn, confusing. The dialogue is............................................................................................. hmmmm. The story is...........................................zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. There's nothing to like here. Don't buy/rent.

- iTunes, Get it Right!5 star

I was very excited to see that iTunes got the Lara Croft movies formated for the iPod, finally! I've been waiting. Someone wasn't paying very much attention when it came to the details, however. Simon West directed the first Tomb Raider, starring Angelina Jolie, Jon Voight and Daniel Craig. All the information for the movies are attached to the wrong film. Oops!

- ok2 star

when is itunes going to put some decent action movies on the store. they need to offer things like sin city, 300, running scared, smokin aces, cliffhanger, or eraser

- ?3 star

The actors for both TR movies are mixed up! Also 1st movie was better

- Lara Croft...5 star

Ok so this isnt the best movie, its a mediocre action movie, the kind you watch on a sunny day after having seen 2 action movies already. But come on, angelina jolie playing lara croft!

- LUV IT!5 star

I always loved this movie. My family loves the video games and loves the movie. I am so happy now that I can download iton my Ipod video!

- Movie summed up in one scene1 star

A 20 ft shark is swimming at full speed towards lara croft, and she punches it in mid swim (she is fully submerged, need i remind you of how much slower you move underwater) in the nose and it swims away. The entire movie is pointless, but we americans simply eat this crap up. Do not buy!

- Love the movie but iTunes has the credits backwards4 star

FYI...the cast of sequal Cradle of Life stars Gerard Butler not Daniel Craig. Daniel Craig was in the original movie Tomb Raider. Note there is a great scene in THAT movie of him naked and wet.

- While this movie is awesome...4 star

The credits are for the other movie and vice versa.

- great5 star

i love this movie. buy it

- Would Love to See It1 star

itunes, lower your prices and I would buy more movies. Change your set-up - make it more like a rental fee and more people would buy. That way they wouldn't feel guilty about deleting movies to make room for other movies on their ipod.

- Angelina in an archaeology movie5 star

this is the perfect sequel to the first Tomb Raider. I have been waiting for a while for Apple to put this on iTunes. If you haven't seen the movies, buy them. They're well written and very entertaining. Besides, it's Angelina... how can you go wrong??


this movie is actually really entertaining for action films that usually lack in everything alse besides the stunts. i don't really remember any holes in the script, each scene is exhilerating and anjelina jolie is HOTTT lol great movie. interesting plot. good looking ppl haha. BUY IT

- yah i liked it...4 star

Well I have been playin' tombraider since the first one came out back in 93'... SO I'M A MAJOR FAN! But i guess these were pretty good?

- :-)4 star

yup yup

- Angelina!4 star

She's in this which makes me happy, but overall a horrable sequel, get the first.

- Good, Fun, Entertaining....4 star

If your a fan of the 1st your gonna love this one too.... Angelina was great yet again as Lara Croft! Let's hope they go for a third film to complete a trilogy.

infinityjd - disapointed2 star

There are so many other movies out there... don't waste your time with this one.

banana78 - Angelina Jolie as Lara Croft does a excellent job in 2!4 star

OMG this 2nd L.C. movie installment is better than the first. Saw in the theatres, TV and now it's available on Itunes. Not a bad movie action, adventure what more you could ask for?

Sonicspeed6785 - .......5 star


LilDagnamet - Better then the First One3 star

I would suggest renting it not buying it.

19941996 - Amazing!!5 star

Total knockout with this one. Angenlina Jolie is one of the best actresses in the world. I love all the action in this it keeps you on the edge of your seat. Not at all a waste of money

Zachf!!! - Really good movie!!5 star

I Love both Lara Croft movies. They are both really full of action there is action 24/7!!! Really good movies.

MARIO 64 - this totaly....... rules!5 star

This movie is awesome i saw it and its action packed adventure. Like almost every second there is fighting or running or just something awesome!

Ziggy123456747 - Pure entertainment - good for teenage girls ... and teenage boys4 star

Do not understand why this movie can't be accepted as entertainment pure and simple?? Good acting, especially the seamless communication during action sequences (most of the film). Surely this is a result if Jolie and Butler going most of their own stunts? Basic premise of hero with dubious sidekick against baddies, except it is a girl heroine and a man as skilled but not to be trusted side kick.

Gemma12 - Best movie5 star

Was interesting, plenty of action and Jolie is cast well

______Macka______ - awesome5 star

one of the best lara croft movies

penapie - love it!5 star

it was the best movie i've seen

Lara_Lover - Yeah5 star

Awesome So Cool LOVE It! And alll of the games (no. 3 is my fave game)

Hashshashin786 - I Don't Feel This One3 star

The movie is pretty much identical to the first one. Gorgeous locations, great stunt sequences, imaginative action scenes and Angelina Jolie is as great as always, although the need to cover her up in order to cover her tattoos is a crime against humanity. So, if you liked the first one, I'd give this one a watch as well. It's not quite as good, but it's not noticeably worse either. If you didn't like it, this won't change your opinion.

Very boring movie...

Silver1910 - Great4 star

Great films.

What!!!!123 - Great film4 star

Great film but......£9.99? Seriously iTunes!! Very overpriced for such an old film.

ujdhfiu - GOOD FILM!4 star

Jolie is an exellent actress. This a good film with a lot of action to it but it is not as good as the first one!

Fallyhag - Poor story, poor direction and lazy effects :(1 star

I quite liked the first one of these films but it wasnt great. I was hoping the second one was going to make up for it. It didnt. I just found it so lazy. The story was awful and the the whole way it was put together was quite laughable. I really have no idea how they ever get funding for this tripe. More importantly, I am really annoyed they were allowed to mess up this franchise. The director clearly failed to cope with this task and the end result is clear evidence of this. Very poor indeed :(

JFerrell14 - Trailer1 star

Watch the trailer, you wont need to see the film. Weak plot.

Danrocks!! - Great film4 star

Its good not as good as the first one mind but still good it tried to be scary at one bit and failed but i was on the edge of my seat

laracrofty281 - the cradle of life5 star

loved this film as always full of action ,enjoyed the fighting sequences and scenery ..i would love to be able to purchase the first film as its still a firm favourite of mine .

ReddJINXXX - Disappointing2 star

The first movie was much much more exciting than this one. The landscapes are beautiful but that's about it. When will iTunes FINALLY sell the first movie? I'd buy that one!

tomjohnsonphotos - Simon West1 star

itunes i'm sorry but you make alot of errors with your films! you set the age ratings wrong on several films! this film is not directed by simon west and i know this because he's my uncle. He made the first one not the second one. So i would very much appreciate it if you changed it and made your films information up to date please

one life live it - What !!5 star

This is pure entertainment at it's best - there is plenty of action and adventure through excellent locations, just what Tomb Raider is all about - I have watched this film 5 times so far and will watch it even more - If you love tomb raider games or the first film then you will love this !!

unicorncampbell - where`s the first film4 star

could you check the actor credits on this film daniel craig was in the first movie not this one and on that it would be nice if we could purchace first one where is it?

tomjohnsonphotos - Simon West1 star

Did not direct this film! I would know... I'm his nephew - he did the first one! It was much better

happy chappie - very very disappointing1 star

I didn't expect much from this film, it's just a bit of mindless fun after all, but even so I was still really disappointed, I mean there is no plot, no acting and no saving features. This is one I wish I had rented to I didn't have to pay for it and keep it. Doh!

eveningscissors - Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life2 star

Shortly after the riproaring success that was the first film, a sequel was rushed for 2003, and the result is pretty poor. Lara Croft is back, and goes on another adventure in a race (again) against a forgettable villain whose name i forget to find the cradle of life. More cardboard characters have been created, and the actors have trouble working with a terrible script. Cringe worthy cg includes sharks, digital Lara and a tree monster that reacts to movement. This film was nothing compared to the original, and sadly never will be. (p.s: watch out for lara's stunt double: a man.)

TomFCH - Oh so dull.1 star

When you hear that this film is by the man who directed Speed, you can't but feel excited that this film could be great but sadly no. The whole filmis poorly made with no real suspense throughout the action sequences and the ending action scene is very dissappointing. Don't buy it, don't rent it, don't see it. The original is better or why not even play the games instead.

ck050877 - pricing inconsistent1 star

love the new movie rental and purchase facility. however have to agree with ginger.warrior the pricing is totally inconsistent. While I believe the rental prices are pretty normal. you can get some of these movies for 3-5 pounds in th shops nowadays during promotions. Would have loved to switch from storing DCDs on my book shelf to my laptop, guess it will have to wait..

ginger.warrior - wow oh yeah5 star

loved this fim, jolie is hotter than ever and lots of action for anyone into the stuff. and i realy want to buy this film but for a film 5 years old and 7 quid if it was 3.99 i would be there straight away but once again your a let down apple
