    I gotta say, I never played the video game, but Angelina was perfectly cast.

    Now, Megan fox is hot! This is the perfect role for her. She's like a jolie clone with the tattoos and whole deal. I only wonder now if she can act. She wasn't terrible in Transformers, but there were a few odd moments. I think she generated enough chemistry with the screen and physical prowess in transformers that she will be able to pull this off. And f' she is hot!

    It's a video game movie, there is no chance of pulling it off.

    just when you thought they couldn't pick a worse actress than angelina jolie, they go right ahead and do it.

    I'd prefer to see Edith "Egg Lady" Massey in this role.

    :eh?: HUH??? Angelina Jolie is one of the most talented actresses in Hollywood. I don't see how you can say that, it's right there.....bouncing all over the screen.

    Gotta disagree with you there.
    I like Angelina. She's a great actor, but not for the role of Laura Croft.
    Given that Lara is English, there are plenty of English actresses that can speak with a REAL English accent.
    Plus, I just don't see her as the type. The first person that came to mind when the first one came out was Claire Forlani.

    She looks more like the Lara Croft in the original PS TR game than anyone else.
    Another better fit for LC than both Jolie and Fox is Lena Headley. She would kick Angelina's *** all the way up and down Rodeo Drive.

    You people forget that Lara is not only hot, but tough; a quality that I do NOT associate with either Jolie or Fox; neither one can pull tough off like Lena, or Linda Hamilton.
    Headley fits that tough role better than either of them, and she proved it in 300 and the Sarah Connor Chronicles.

    Anyone who thinks an actress should play Lara Croft just because she's hot needs to be pimpslapped.

    Oh, Claire and Lena are both English.
