Two years after saving the world from temporal chaos, alluring operative Lara Croft returns, now on the hunt for Pandora's box in various exotic locales -- fighting off a roaring shark near Santorini, parachuting an orb of crucial information to safety in Hong Kong. Yet the now-formulaic plot leaves little to the imagination, and the stale dialogue makes our sexy heroine seem more brawn than brains. Sadly, this Cradle does not rock. EXTRAS Making-of docs on the visual effects and Jolie's weaponry and stunt training show what it takes to become a butt-kicking, gun-thrusting action figure. But much like the movie, the remaining features -- including standard commentary, a few music videos, and an unenlightening screen test -- offer little Life support.
