Tomb Raider Fan Film Packs a Punch

Like Tomb Raider as much as we do? Then you’ll probably enjoy the hell out of this action-packed fan film.
Based on the most recent Tomb Raider, ‘Croft’ was directed by Trevor Addie, and written by Addie and Irma Leong. Taking place in an undisclosed heavily forested location, ‘Croft’ shares some visual sensibilities with Crystal’s 2013 reboot of the franchise. Starring Cassandra Ebner as the heroine, the nearly 20-minute short manages to show off just about everything we love form the game series, at least as far as action is concerned. The production eschews exploration and archaeology in favor of a lengthy combat sequence heavily influenced by the likes of ‘The Grey’ and the Bourne films.
It’s an impressively shot work of art, and it’s definitely worth sitting through all 20 minutes to enjoy, regardless of your affinity for Tomb Raider and Ms. Croft. You can learn more about the film on its official Facebook page.
