Male Film Critic Weighs in on Alicia Vikander's Sex Appeal in 'Tomb Raider'

A keen-eyed Philly Voice reader highlighted this paragraph from a review of the new Tomb Raider film published yesterday. Philly Voice contributor Jerome Maida felt the need to compare Alicia Vikander and Angelina's Jolie's body types to explain why the new Tomb Raider is inferior.


If you click on the link to the review (here's a link that won't give them pageviews), the part of the review highlighted in the tweet has been excised, with a note added to the bottom of the review stating it was removed. The review itself? Actual garbage that summarizes bits of the plot in a dimissive manner, but provides no coherent criticisms of the film.

People have been dragging the hell out of this dude, obviously:

I wasn't checking for this film before I read this tweet, but now I kind of want to go opening day?
