QUICK TAKE:
Action: A young woman hopes to find her long-missing father and must contend with a villain who's on the verge of potentially releasing something cataclysmic from a long-buried tomb.
PLOT:
Lara Croft (ALICIA VIKANDER) is a young woman working as a bike courier in London. She doesn't need to live that way, what with being the sole heir to the company, country estate and other riches created by her tycoon father, Lord Richard Croft (DOMINIC WEST). He's been missing for the past seven years, and while Lara's guardian, Ana Miller (KRISTIN SCOTT THOMAS), wants her to sign her inheritance papers, Lara refuses, believing her father may still be alive.

She gets a number of clues about his last known whereabouts when she uncovers her father's secret work in relation to the rumored but never discovered tomb of an ancient Japanese queen, and that he chartered a ship out of Hong Kong to take him to an uninhabited island in hopes of finding that.

Lara travels there, and while she doesn't find that man, she finds his son, Lu Ren (DANIEL WU), who reluctantly agrees -- for pay -- to follow in their footsteps into treacherous seas. They end up shipwrecked and now prisoner to Mathias Vogel (WALTON GOGGINS) who knew both of their fathers and has many prisoners working as slave labor for him in trying to find the same tomb Richard was after.

From that point on, and after unintentionally leading the villain to the exact spot he was looking for, Lara does what she can to free herself, rescue her father, and stop Vogel before he releases something potentially cataclysmic.

WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
