Lara in the screen role was not portrayed as an CGI character, but was played by actress Angelina Jolie.

The film was shot on location at Angkor, Cambodia.

During the summer of 2003, the sequel, Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life, made its way into theatres across the United States and other countries around the world.

Plot summary

  • Tagline: Who is Lara Croft?

A member of a rich British aristocratic family, Lara Croft is a "tomb raider" who enjoys collecting ancient artifacts from ruins of temples, cities, etc. worldwide, and doesn't mind going through death-defying dangers to get them. She is skilled in hand-to-hand combat, weapons training, and foreign languages - and does them all in tight outfits.

The planets of the solar system are going into astronomical conjunction (which occurs every 5,000 years), and a secret society called the Illuminati is seeking an ancient talisman called The Triangle of Light that gives its possessor the ability to control time. The exact date when the movie is set is not given (although the 'first phase' (sic) of the conjunctions occurs on May 15), the plot perhaps is inspired from the alignment that actually happened on May 5, 2000.

The Illuminati need a certain clock/key called the All-seeing Eye to help them in their search, and they have to find it in one week or wait for the next planetary alignment to find it again which will be in another 5,000 years. Lara happens to find the All-seeing Eye hidden in a wall of her mansion. The Illuminati steal it, and Lara gets an old letter from Lord Richard Croft, her deceased father, telling her about the society's agenda (Her father was a defected member, who hid the key). Now, she must retreive the key and find and destroy the talisman before the Illumanti can get their hands on it.

There are at least two references to the second game of the series, like the dagger of Xi'an which is auctioned. On the other hand, the plot presents some deviations from the games and the comics: while the comic-book Lara lost her parents in a plane crash, from where she was the only survivor, in the movie her mother died while she was little, while her father Richard (instead of Henshingly) died in 1985 'in the Field'. Also, her butler is the young Hilary, instead of the old Winston, appearing in the games (in the comics he is called Jives).
