[REVIEW]

Short on laughs. Not even the combined talents of Justin Long and Emmanuelle Chriqui can save this film.

[SYNOPSIS]

When he discovers that an Indian casino is about to be built over the town's historic battlefield, Chase Revere, the self-appointed protector of a small town's rather meagre place in American history, joins forces with sexy but dangerous town siren Lucy Shanks to launch an all-out offensive against the project - earning the wrath of the entire town, who believe that the casino will save their decaying local community.

As Adam navigates the romantic relationship waters, Mike struggles connecting to his former drug-addicted son who has just returned home, and Neil develops a relationship with another woman in his sex addicts group, but a platonic friendship might be exactly what he needs.

2018 REVIEW TRAILER

RATED

60.8 (100)

[REVIEW]

Not as bad as many remakes and holds its own as an adventure movie but clearly made by a studio who chose to ignore the original appeal of Lara.

[SYNOPSIS]

Barely managing to stay afloat as a freelance bike courier, Lara Croft--the twenty-one-year-old heiress to an immense fortune and daughter of the intrepid archaeologist and global financial magnate, Lord Richard Croft--is still reeling from his inexplicable disappearance, seven long years later. However, an inconspicuous trail of elaborate clues will soon have young Lara following in her father's footsteps, as she embarks on his last crusade and her first adventure to unearth the cursed tomb of the omnipotent Sorceress-Queen of Yamatai, Himiko. Against all logic and Richard's will, Lara picks up where her dad left off, venturing all alone on a remote and perilous island-prison which is crawling with the ruthless Mathias Vogel's cutthroats who are in search of the very thing that claimed the archaeologist's life. But, Lara must know. Is there more to this mysterious vanishing than meets the eye?..
