    In a summer where the special effects in movies have grown steadily more repetitive and dreary, "LCTR:TCOL" uses imagination and exciting locations to give the movie the same kind of pulp adventure feeling we get from the Indiana Jones movies.

    Jolie is even hotter, faster and more commanding than last time around as the fearless heiress/adventuress, plus a little more human. The less welcome news is that most of the same shortcomings that cramped the first installment are still dogging the sequel, which delivers on action but dawdles through downtime.
  3. Croft is one humorless butt-kicker. Excavations in exotic lands have rarely looked so much like items on a to-do list.
  4. Simply a series of set pieces designed to insure Angelina Jolie's status as action-babe pin-up.
  5. Isn't nearly as much fun as the original. For one thing, Lara having a boyfriend wrecks everything.
  6. Beneath its satisfactory chops this movie -- like Ms. Croft herself -- is stuffy and soulless.
  7. It wouldn't be fair to gripe about the hundreds of plot holes; the whole thing is hole.
