Thoughts on Tomb Invader

Characters – Alabama Channing is the tomb invader, she has been finding treasures for years now following in her mother’s footsteps. She is great in combat and can solve the clues with this latest quest given her the answers she has been looking for. Nathan is the rival explorer, who has a reputation for doing this for money and is clearly named Nathan after the Uncharted games series. Helena is a friend joining Ally on the quest, she doesn’t do much else and Tim Parker is financing the project.

PerformancesWhen it comes to the performances Gina Vitori is good for the most part because she can handle the combat well. The rest of the cast could easily be changed even if Andrew Katers acts just like Chris Evans.

StoryThe story follows a young tomb raider (yes, I called her this because invader sounds stupid) who goes on her latest quest which will give her answers about her long-lost mother. There is a loose side story with the team having different ideas of what treasure hunting is, but if you must pick between the two films story, Tomb Raider or Tomb Invader, Tomb Raider is head and soldiers above on story telling.

Action/AdventureThe action is very basic combat and trap dodging which is what we would be expecting from a treasure hunting movie as the character do go on a routine adventure of life and death.

SettingsThe settings put us in random forest that leads to temple, they are what we need from this style of movie without being anything stand out.

Special EffectsMost of the effects are not the best because we know the budget of the movie and the company producing it don’t spend big on the effects.

Scene of the Movie –
Nathan’s quick wit through the film.

That Moment That Annoyed Me It is a poor man’s Tomb Raider.

Final ThoughtsThis is a basic made for low budget tomb raider movie with a different name, we get basic action, adventure which should have stayed on the television setting we see.

Overall: Basic adventure film.
