POS­SI­BLY the clos­est a video-game movie has come to jus­ti­fy­ing the time and money in­volved. Di­rec­tor Si­mon West had a solid but un­spec­tac­u­lar ac­tion-movie pedi­gree — re­mem­ber “Con Air”? — back­ground and pro­duced a solid but un­spec­tac­u­lar ac­tion movie. An­gelina Jolie — then rou­tinely ranked as the world's sex­i­est woman — was cast as Lara Croft — rou­tinely ranked as the world's sex­i­est video-game char­ac­ter, to the cha­grin of Ms. Pac-Man. Jolie ac­tu­ally did a good job of bring­ing Croft to life, putting in a per­for­mance that was way bet­ter than the film de­served.
