Watching Tomb Raider at the film's Los Angeles premiere in March sent Camilla Luddington careening back to the year.
If being hideous is a Hollywood standard I agree.
I haven't played the new one, is half her dialog grunting and whining again?
What? I'm not a big fan of her performance but there is nothing "hideous" about this woman. You're an eejit.
About 16% through. I think she has always done a great Lara Croft. Hope they make another one.
I thought she pout in a decent performance in the first two games but I'm 30% through Shadow and most of the time, she sounds bored and uninterested like she just wants to get it over with. Her American accent keeps slipping through in this one as well.
"Her American accent keeps slipping through in this one as well" I thought she was British?
But she moved to USA very early.
Her accent has never been convincing to me. It actually sounds like someone putting on an English accent. There's many times where she over-emphasizes certain words to maintain the accent and this really gives it away. She always sounds a bit ditsy as a result and it frequently drives me mad during cut-scenes. At least OG Lara (Keeley Hawes I believe) got the accent right.
Keeley Hawes did Legend, Underworld, the Guardian of Light the Temple of Osiris and Anniversary so not super OG like Shelley Blond, but I agree. I thought Keeley nailed her voice.
Rivals Hollywood? Not really aiming high then are we.
She is perfect Lara imo, much much better than Vikander (who is great actress btw, but as Lara - maybe because of the pathetic script - she was grotesque).
She's way better than the girl from the last movie.
Hollywood? Lol That cringey "Oh I hate Tombs" line from the 2013 Tomb Raider still makes me cringe today
Can't compare voice actors to actual actors. She may be a great voice actress but it is completely different having to do voice, body and expressions.
