She's Croft-y. Again. For this sequel, Angelina Jolie slips into something tight and adventurous--and, well, not much has changed. She's still kicking ass with amazing acrobatic stunts. She's still a better aim than the bad guys. The tomb-y scenes look totally fake. (The Cradle of Life is basically plastic rocks and strobe lights.) And there's another device that could unleash untold evils upon the world--unless she stops it! Like the video games that inspired it, this installment isn't better or worse than the first--it's just more of the same.
So, if you like watching Jolie globe-trot, fire off her pistols (and her mouth) and take out the baddies with an icy coolness--okay, yeah, we do, too--then, by all means, sign up to rock the Cradle. Just don't blame us if you get bored halfway through.
