1331. Tomb Raider Chronicles - WEAVER: LARA CROFT IS NOT A HEROINE
Sigourney Weaver thinks that the quality of female action heroes has declined since she starred in Alien. I'm not sure I'd say Angelina Jolie was brilliant in the way they used her in Lara Croft, Weaver told Spiegel magazine. Angelina is a great actress, but her role is limited to fighting evil with weapons. I think it's quite a pity that an actress as good as Angelina Jolie isn't given more room to portray the character of Lara Croft with a touch more intelligence.

1335. Tomb Raider Chronicles - WHO SHOULD REPLACE JOLIE AS LARA?
Cocooned in a pageant of all things uncertain, a source attached to motion picture giant Paramount Pictures recently suggested the studio is still entertaining the notion of a third Lara Croft-helmed movie to conclude the trilogy originally touted by Simon West. Unfortunately for Par, somebody's forget to mention a key ingredient that's sure to be missing from Tomb Raider III: Lara Croft's human counterpart herself, Academy Award winner Angelina Jolie.
