Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle Of Life

Synopsis: Intrepid British archaeologist Lara Croft has made perhaps the most important archaeological discovery in history: an orb that leads to the mythical Pandora's Box. Unfortunately, the orb falls into the hands of Jonathan Reiss, an evil scientist who deals in killer viruses and hopes to sell the secrets of the box as the ultimate weapon. Recruited by British Intelligence to get the orb back from Reiss, Lara recruits Terry Sheridan, a British marine turned mercenary (and her former love interest) to help. The two embark on an adventure that spans continents in an attempt to regain the orb...

They've found another one.

There's going to be not a treasure left

by the time she gets here.

Mark the location.

That's the French mast.

And over there, crystals.

They're all coming.

All except one.

All right, follow Crystals.

When he dives, we dive.

Maybe we'll get luck and

find what it is down there.

Hey. Look at that, Jimmy, look.

Why isn't she slowing down?

You ask her.

- No way.

Hello, boys. You're wet.

Half the world's trade is already here.

And you make us wait.

But you know I can't resist to be defied.

Lara, tell us, what's all this fuss about it?

What does everyone think is down there?

I don't know what everybody

thinks is down there, but.

I think it's the Luna Temp.

The Luna Temp?

My sons, if it is not on television, forget it.

It's a temple built by Alexander the Great.

who was Greek, in case you don't know.

- Yeah, yeah.

Alexander collected treasures

from all over the world.

He stored them in two places.

The majority went to his library in Egypt.

But his most priced possessions,

went here,

the Luna Temple.

By law, no one was allowed

to record its location.

And in 330 B.C., it was...

...swallowed by the sea...

...destroyed, during a volcanic eruption,

lost forever,

until yesterday.

Even half the temple is intact,

it would still be the greatest find

since the pyramids.

The others heading to this area here

along the shore...

That's based on the currents.

- Yes.

Oh. This is it goes, it's why I was late. -Oh.

It's geological.

Take him two hours after the quake.

The epic enter was here,

five miles northeast of us.

But, look at the current along the shore now.

Wait, they've shifted.

So, while they're all diving there,

the wind will actually be...


Let's go.

Something wrong?

First Alexander doesn't

report the temple's location.

Then God washed it from the earth

with a volcano.

Now even the currents changed.

Lara, maybe this temple

is not meant to be found.

Everything lost is meant to be found.

Don't worry.


It's unbelievable.


It's huge.


Jimmy, this is wonderful...

Do you see what I see?

- Oh my god.

Oh my god.

- It's incredible.

Nicky, look at these.

We're going to be rich.

Hey, Lara.

What do you say to two

handsome Greek partners?

When you find two, let me know.

Heard? She's talking about you. -No, you.

Luckily gold coins...give me that...

Lara, what is that?

It's mine.

What is she doing?

Lara. That column is collapsing.

After shows.

I think that's the sign leave.

Two minutes.

Lara, we need to leave now.

We've got to go.

Keep packing. -Do you think

it's going to collapse?

You take those two.

We have to hurry up.

We're going to go,

we're going to go now. Come on.

They're coming up.


Lara, it's us, Hillary and Bryce.

She's disorientated, that's

normal after three days.

Nice day for a dip?

Gentlemen, there is an expression,

'It's not nice to fool Mother Nature.'

Yet that is precisely what

I've been doing for some time now.

Whether it will be sorren gas for Mr. Zap...

...improved typhoid for Mr.

Croft to use in the Balkans...

...enhanced cholera for Mr. Devalia.

But, while these weapons

served their purpose,

there have always been limitations.

Stable diseases aren't lethal.

deadly ones burn out too quickly.

Mother Nature can only be fooled so much.

Deploy my weapon, and your

enemies, however great,

will collapse...

...rather Mr. Monza is collapsing right now.

What the hell is going on?

Monza told MI6 about this meeting.

That's why the change of location.

He was going to turn me over to them...
