Lara Croft's first movie outing may not have been great but it had a certain amount of novelty value on its side. Sadly, this lacklustre, poorly-scripted sequel can't even manage that, as Lara spends a large amount of the film in what appears to me a gold lamé tracksuit top.

This time round, 'Lady' Lara Croft (Angelina Jolie, who's so pneumatic, you wonder if she might be inflatable) is involved in a government mission to find Pandora's Box. Cue a few nice locations, lengthy (dull) action sequences and some excruciatingly bad acting. This makes the video game look like Masterpiece Theatre.
