 Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
It is the second movie based on the famous Tomb Raider video game series, the first being Lara Croft: Tomb Raider.
Originally planned to be the second in the line of three movies, its poor performance critically and in the box office, resulted in a planned third movie to be scrapped.
The box office underperformance of this movie, and other female-led action films released around the same time, created something of a ripple effect that resulted in production of several similar films being cancelled, including a James Bond spin-off featuring Halle Berry.

 Rush Hour (film) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jackie Chan reported in July 2005 that the reason there had been no progress in making the movie was because Chris Tucker was making too many demands that the movie company would not grant.
Chan plays a detective inspector Lee, who has been sent to America from Hong Kong to investigate the kidnapping of Chinese consul Han's daughter, Soo Young.
However, the FBI (who are working on the case themselves) do not want an outsider like Lee to interfere with their investigation so they palm him off with LAPD detective, James Carter (played by Tucker); a fast talking and comically arrogant police officer.

 The Superhero Hype! Boards - Six Part set visit   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
The movie takes place a couple of years after the events in “Daredevil.” Those unfamiliar with the comic books may scratch their heads thinking Elektra was killed by Bullseye (Colin Farrell) in the movie.
In the movie, it is revealed that after Elektra’s mother was killed, she and her father abandoned the mansion in order to live in New York City.
He understands that she’s repressed her conscience and, at the time the movie starts, I think he probably understands that the repression of her conscience is costing her more energy than the release of it.

It’s a movie that begs for a DVD full of extra features, but this Miramax release is almost as sparse as the movie.
It is a challenging movie, and a lot of people may find it “boring.” If you’re more interested in watching movies than in the art of film, think twice before you see it.
