Forgot to blog about this at the time, and have just seen it for the second time.
This movie was, essentially, everything I expected: amazing visuals, incredibly pretty and fanciful technology, and, of course, Lara Croft in tight leather with an eye patch. Who could ask for more? Well, me. It was gorgeous, a comic book reader's wet dream, but it failed to surprise -- with a single exception -- and I was rather hoping it would. Perhaps I hyped it a bit too much, internally.
But I'm feeling too ill to analyse it any further, I'm afraid. My brain isn't working, as I've caught the cold that most of London seems to have at the moment. Posting will resume when I can type without sneezing.
