The second film, ''Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life'', has Lara in search of PandorasBox. Evil scientist Jonathan Reiss ([[Creator/CiaranHinds Ciarán Hinds]]) seeks to weaponise the contents of Pandora's Box for biological warfare. Lara is paired with mercenary and former love interest Terry Sheridan (Creator/GerardButler), an ex-SAS man who betrayed the country and gets his chance to pay penance. While the first movie embraced its video game roots, the second attempts to insert a little actual drama and tries to take itself seriously as an action-adventure flick -- so seriously that some considered it not fun enough.

* TookALevelInBadass: Although she kicked ass and knocked off a few mooks in the first time, in this second movie, Lara acts more like a female James Bond with a licence to kill, leaving behind a high body count and outright [[ChekovsGun warning]] Sheridan that she is perfectly capable and willing to kill him if necessary.
