(C+) Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: 4th - 6th Grades

(C+) Lara Croft: Tomb Raider

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Middle School
Something more than a video game but something less than a movie, "Tomb Raider" has some great action sequences and the ever-watchable Angelina Jolie. What it does not have is much of a plot, inte...
