Intense, action packed adventure can get violent. But it is VERY exciting.
Fun, epic adventure has its moments. BUT, I would totally recommend this, it is just so thrilling and exciting. There are many scenes of violence and sometimes it is extreme. The most disturbing scene in my opinion was the scene where Lara had to drown a man who was trying to kill her. That man whipped her around, splashed muddy water into her mouth, kicked her, etc. Lara put her knee o n the mans back and pushed his face down in the water, she holds his head there screaming (she feels VERY guilty about her actions, and killing someone), she luckily kills her. There are also scenes of Lara getting impaled with a piece of metal (she pulls it out of her stomach in pain, and later gets it stitched up and is screaming). A suspenseful scene in which Lara is on a rusted plane that keeps falling. Characters all held at gunpoint, and blade point. Lara whips an ax into a characters shoulder, Lara also gets slashed by the same ax. CCM left out the part about a disease that rots characters skin and turns them into zombie-monsters. Lara reminds me of Rey (Start Wars), due to her being brave, courageous, loyal, and makes sacrifices. A frightening scene in where Lara is hiding form Trinity in a tomb, there are a LOT of skeletons. Falling spikes crush characters, spear through a characters mouth, a "slave" is killed without hesitation (the killer does not even care after), people are shot by arrows. A frightening storm with loud noises. An illegal bike race. Explosions. Multiple jump-scares. Characters are beaten and whacked in the face with shovels. Large shoot-outs. Bullets and arrows fly, characters are sliced, stabbed, impaled, rot alive, and drown. Important characters get shot (but live through it) and one gets shot in the head. This is the kind of movie that could and would leave some kids shaking in their seats, and maybe with tears running down their face, it is very brutal and straight forward, along with some straight up frightening scenes, especially the scenes in the tomb. I did not expect all of the jump scares and heavy suspense. But it kept me on the edge of my seat. Overall, this was such an exciting film, with some really good CGI. Lara is a strong, and brave female role model and lead. My MPAA rating: PG-13 (for sequences of action and brutal violence throughout, scary and disturbing images, bloody images, some suggestive content, language)
