A new Lara Croft is on the risen and she is played by the Oscar awarded Alicia Wikander. Now you can see her first Tomb Raider movie from 2018 on Netflix.
I didn’t get to see Tomb Raider on movie just after the premiere, but during a “cinema night” in which I watched lots of movies after one another, I got to watch this (in 3D). I wasn’t enthusiastic about the 3D glasses and the experience, but the movie in itself was exactly what I expected it to be.
Watch Tomb Raider on Netflix
If you haven’t seen the original Tomb Raider movie with Angelina Jolie yet (from 2001), it can be streamed on American Netflix at the moment. If you want to know more about how you can access American Netflix, check this article.
But, if you want to watch the Tomb Raider movie from 2018 starring Alicia Wikander as Lara Croft, you will have to head over to Netflix in the UK (in England). That is the sole region in which the movie can currently be found, but it is well worth the transition. You can read more on how you can access UK Netflix from abroad and which VPN to use right here.
Is it worth watching Tomb Raider on Netflix?
You might not remember the original Tomb Raider computer game, but that doesn’t really matter. If you like adventurous movies, then Tomb Raider might be exactly what you are looking for. It is probably not the coolest and most original story in the universe, but as an action movie with cool stunts from Alicia Wikander, this is a nice movie to watch for a couple of hours.
Tomb Raider didn’t receive lots of praise worldwide, and it currently has a 51% critics score on Rotten Tomatoes, while the audience score is 56%. In other words, not the best, but not the worst either. And to be honest, I have seen several movies with 20% score on Rotten Tomatoes that I greatly enjoyed, so it doesn’t have to mean anything at all.
