Films based on video games


8. Tomb Rider

The first of two films starring Angelina Jolie as the most famous female character in gaming is utterly silly and altogether forgettable. However, it derserves praise for two things; first, Jolie is the perfect choice to play Croft. Not only does she nail the lithe athleticism and rapier wit of the Tomb Raider protagonist, she’s equal parts brains, brawn and raw sex appeal. Jolie is so good at playing Croft it’s almost impossible to imagine anyone else doing a better job with the role.
