The Movie has been compared to Indiana Jones, with a little bit of Star Wars thrown in. At one point during the movie, we see one of the members of the team, Kain, jump into a pool of water, just as he did in the game. They then jump in after him, unaware that he has now become a vampire. This is done by Kain, and he uses his telekinetic abilities to turn people into vampires.
Despite the similarities between this Movie and the Indiana Jones Movie, one of the most amazing similarities is the fact that both movies are considered a cult classic. Some say that The Cradle of Life is like Raiders of the Lost Ark, with the zombies and a lot of the action elements from the later Movie. For others, it's just another excuse to see the likes of Nicole Kidman and Jake Gyllenhaal acting their best.
In the Movie, Lara Croft takes her talent on the field, by jumping into the water, while playing in a nearby pond. She swims over to a hidden metal box that contained old equipment that once belonged to a museum curator, and it begins to enter her body.
In the Movie, Lara Croft goes off into the woods and finds a giant skull. She then heads into the main game areas and is pursued by the director of the museum. She manages to survive a chase and is able to retrieve an ancient artifact from the place, which will help her in saving her mother.
It is very interesting that this Movie was inspired by the Video Games. It is not the same as the games, but it still carries a strong similarity.
