Despite a game Alicia Vikander, the reboot of “Tomb Raider” feels dusty and derivative.

The rebooting of “Tomb Raider” should have yielded something better than this decent, but uninspired attempt. It had brilliant source material to adapt from with the successful 2013 relaunch of the Lara Croft video game, and Oscar-winner Alicia Vikander gives the part her all as a gritty and intense lead. Unfortunately, the script is tonally all over the map and derives too heavily from films like “Raiders of the Lost Ark” and “The Mummy.” And while its action sequences are well-shot and edited with precision, this movie has an underwritten villain, too many flashbacks, and an underwhelming tomb excavation. If there is to be a sequel, the filmmakers will need to dig deeper to ensure something great.
