(Angelina Jolie)

Lara Croft: Tomb Raider can be seen on M-Net Movies Showcase DStv Channel 108 on September 12 at 20h00

Directed by Simon West in 2001, the action adventure movie stars Angelina Jolie, Jon Voight and Iain Glen.

Angelina Jolie won wide acclaim for her depiction of Lara Croft, a character created for a video game series, and boosted the film to become the top-grossing action movie with a woman in the lead role.

The story deals with a doomsday cult which is desperate to find two components of a secret device that can endow them with unlimited power – but only during a rare planetary alignment. The fearless Lara Croft will have none of this, and sets out to thwart them with her fighting skills, knowledge of archaeology, and guile.
