Tomb Raider Bombing From Captain Marvel Writer

Warner Bros' big screen adaptation of Tomb Raider appears to be another video game bust.

Reviews have been trickling in to Rotten Tomatoes with about 50% being positive to 50% being negative.

Tomb Raider presently has a 51% Rotten Tomatoes score with 29 Fresh to 27 Rotten.

The negative reviews tend to pick apart the film by stating it feels more like a video game than a movie, while others state it's a flabby, lazy mess, and still others say it's contrived and not satisfying.

The positive reviews offer it's a splendid popcorn flick, has successfully reinvented the character, and Alicia Vikander makes a convincing and strong Lara Croft.

Tomb Raider was written by Captain Marvel writer Geneva Robertson-Dworet, but there probably shouldn't be any worry for Marvel fans as Captain Marvel is a Marvel Studios film and will have more humor than Tomb Raider, which the Marvel fans seem to show up for.

Geneva Robertson-Dworet actually revealed humorous elements that were cut from Tomb Raider were used for Captain Marvel.

Captain Marvel has a very funny voice, and it’s more of an action-comedy, more like what we were talking about doing in the first draft I wrote for Tomb Raider…. [but] that tone survived in Captain Marvel,” Robertson-Dworet explained “I love funny female characters, so as Tomb Raider got more serious, I got even more committed to the idea of Captain Marvel being hilarious.”

Tomb Raider opens Friday.
