Overview

Lara Croft: Tomb Raider

Lara Croft completes her transformation from super-hip video game character to big-screen heroine with the 2001 summer flick Lara Croft: Tomb Raider. In addition to casting sexy starlet Angelina Jolie as Croft, the film features an energized soundtrack bursting with cutting-edge rock, electronica, and hip-hop. For the rock set, U2 check in with a pumped-up remix of All That You Can't Leave Behind's "Elevation" and Nine Inch Nails offer the rumbling synth dirge "Deep." The bulk of Tomb Raider, however, is a smorgasbord of ambitious electro-pop. The Chemical Brothers juice up "Galaxy Bounce" with big beats and funky bass, while on the danceable "Where's Your Head At," the Basement Jaxx extensively sample two Gary Numan songs ("M.E." and "This Wreckage") as they ride a wave of handclaps and swooshing synthesizers. On the hip-hop tip, Outkast fuse atonal horn arrangements, acoustic guitar, and amphetamine-pumped beats on the hyper-funk of "Speedballin'," while Missy Elliott recruits alt-pop ingénue Nelly Furtado for a slinky, stuttering remix of the exotically rhythmic, Timbaland-produced single "Get Ur Freak On." The images of faraway locales that Croft might visit are enhanced by Leftfield's "Song of Life," peppered by Ofra Haza-esque vocals and undulating cadence of sampled vocals, and by Groove Armada's chilling "Edge Hill," a trip-hop number featuring rumbling bass, swirling strings, and reverberating beats. Whether they're in a packed movie theater or at a steamy rave, dance-music fans will dig the treasure-filled Tomb Raider. Dave Gil de Rubio

This soundtrack is positively magnificent! It has popular songs from well known artists and a bunch of great songs from lesser known artists . This is a great blend o sounds and the beats of each track are great!!! I give it 5 stars!

A great soundtrack that reflects upon the Lara Croft music. I'll be listening to this one five years from now.

I'm pretty hurt that they would put such an amazing song such as Nine Inch Nails "Deep" on such a craptacular soundtrack such as this. Missy Elliot a lyrical genius? I think not. It's embarassing that they put this masterpiece with such crappy immature bands.

Offers an interesting blend of rock, funk, and electronic with kind of a mystical quality. I haven't seen the movie yet, but purchased the CD based on songs I like by several of the artists. Surprisingly, some of the lesser known artists offer some of the best tracks. A great CD that you can enjoy from beginning to end while becoming hypnotized by the pulsating beats.

This soundtrack is compiled of songs from various unknown artists. Because of the lack of songs you get to preview, I gave this soundtrack a 2. The only song that is even cool for this movie is ''Get Ur Freak On'' by Missy ''Misdameanor'' Elliot. That song rocks. Other than that, the other songs do not get you into the movie. Although Angelina Jolie is extremely hot in this movie, it is not worth buying the soundtrack to it.
