4k movie reviews
The screen version of computer games, the “accursed” genre of cinematography. You can search for as many reasons as you like why the film UHD industry still does not give in to this genre, many even still believe that the best attempt is the “Mortal Battle” of 1995 (which, to put it mildly, is rather controversial), but, in the author’s opinion, It’s very simple. Directors, screenwriters and producers do not take seriously the source material. “Hitman“, “Max Payne” and the endless “Resident Evil” to the confirmation – the creators of cinema adaptation do not care much about what is so good and unique is the source, so at the end, at best, we get a pale copy of the original. Recently, it’s getting a little better with this, but still not enough. And the new “Tomb Raider: Lara Croft 4K” definitely sets the bar for the rest.
“Tomb Raider: Lara Croft” is felt like a movie 4K, when you look at it you realize that the creators tried, first and foremost, to shoot a movie 2160p, and not blindly copy the game, which makes other game adaptations so bad. It is perfectly shot, the action is chained to the screen and admired, and it’s interesting to watch the adventures of the heroes. And here we see really heroes, not cardboard clippings with the name of a familiar character for the fan service, as one often encounters in such tapes – many characters are more than open and attract sympathy from the viewer.
The plot has undergone some changes from the game reboot of 2013 – you can not say that for the better, but definitely the story here is a head taller than in the previous screen versions of the series “Tomb Raider”. It is somewhat trivial, it follows the protested theme of “saving the world from an ominous corporation that wants to destroy this very world”, but what is happening does not cause rejection and involuntarily notices that you care. The general impression of the plot spoils some story holes that could be easily corrected, plus the viewer should reduce the belief in the realism of the action, but in general, some absolutely critical claims to the script, which completely ruin the pleasure of viewing, no.
For a long time before the premiere of the film Ultra HD, many doubted that Alicia Vikander could outperform Angelina Jolie, the previous performer of the role of Lara Croft. It is worth, of course, to ask such, whether they have looked at that version for a long time, since, in addition to the appearance, Jolie could not be more pleased with the image, but still. And you can be absolutely sure that Alicia coped well with this task. She is extremely charismatic and convincing in the role, and a rich range of emotions from the very first minutes attracts her. Perhaps the only thing she could picture a little better is the fear of what surrounds her and what awaits her. Only a couple of moments it caught my eye, otherwise it can only be praised for the work. But Walton Goggins disappointed. Even not so – Walton is a great actor and one of the best of our time, but here he was given very little room for action, so the villain got him boring and faded, he is capable of more. Dominic West and Daniel Wu also played their roles well, but the script, frankly, did not give them enough ground for work, they manage to cope with their task, but they do not show anything special.
The tape was very pleased with its bright colors, decorations, action and special effects, in places it’s very ingenious and stylish. All this action is taken off juicy and enjoys viewing. In some places you could see the “green screen” of Alicia’s pose, but you rarely notice this. In general, “Tomb Raider: Lara Croft”, surprisingly, was one of the more pleasant blockbusters of recent times. Something new or grandiose that amazes the imagination, the viewer will hardly endure for himself at the end of the credits, and some controversial moments leave a bitter aftertaste, and yet the film 2160p should be given a chance. And some, including the author of the review, even want additions in the form of continuation.
