Alicia Vikander was very good and gave a fairly grounded portrayal of the iconic Lara Croft. The movie does a great job of making you feel like you're watching a version of the game with the action set pieces being just as crazy and exhilarating as you may expect. Walton Goggins i thought balanced a perfect blend of bad guy without going too over the top. I had tons of fun with this, no it's not perfect and there's moments…
Reese Witherspoon was solid but I HATED HATED HATED the three young filmmakers. Really annoyed me and dragged the film down to nothing. It's cheesy too. I mean what did those 3 immature punks actually think? They just sweep into the movie and act all protective of Alice and think they know what's best for her and her kids it's stupid. Then of course Alice herself doesn't know what's best for her, what a shock (that was sarcasm)
If you couldn't tell, I didn't like it
The banter between Woody Harrelson's character and Haillee Steinfeld's character were few and far between but hilarious. Coming of age movies have to be really good for me to take notice as it's one of my favourite genres which includes my favourite movie of all time submarine. Plus it's a genre that can fall into cliche so easily. Edge of seventeen manages to avoid doing this. Really funny with a brilliant performance by Haillee Steinfeld. Funny, touching and sad, a solid movie indeed. Many laugh out loud moments in the film
A visually stunning movie beautifully shot and framed. The way the film finds beauty in a dystopia is great, Roger Deakins needs to win the Oscar. Ryan golsing gives another stellar performance in a gripping sci-fi epic that was surprisingly more about character than I expected. Ford also gives his best performance in years, both him and golsing portray people carrying pain and hurt.
