Lara Croft: Tomb Raider (2001)

This is an okay movie. On the night of May 15 Lara Croft (Angelina Jolie) hears a clock ticking. She discovers a secret chamber inside of her mansion and finds a carriage clock with an odd object inside of it. She shares pictures of the device with another tomb raider and he pretends to not understand what it is, but then sends commandos to steal it from her. The next day she receives a letter from her deceased father (Jon Voight) explaining that she needs to travel to Cambodia and Siberia to locate and destroy the missing pieces of the Triangle of Light, which allows the possessor to have control over space and time.

The film is based on a video game series and was the highest grossing film adaptation of a video game until 2010. This was the debut film for Chris Barrie, a British actor best known for his role on the television series Red Dwarf. In 2002, an attraction was opened at Paramount's Kings Island (then owned by Paramount Pictures), but it was sold in 2008 and references to the film had to be removed.
