Lara’s song

The reboot of “Tomb Raider” (⋆⋆⋆, PG-13) serves as an origin chronicle for Lara Croft, charting her evolution from spunky bicycle courier to daredevil globe-trotter. Taking over the role from Angelina Jolie, Oscar winner Alicia Vikander (“The Danish Girl”) goes a long way toward making the cardboard character real. As thrill-a-minute cliffhangers pile up to stratospheric heights, her performance compares with Jolie’s overacted version like Daniel Craig’s 007 with Roger Moore’s.
