Lara Croft Tomb Raider: Tears Of The Dragon, the largest Tomb Raider fan film ever to be created. Hailed as "what the Hollywood version should have been", this film is brilliantly written and directed, action packed and full of adventure! A must see for any fan of the games, or a good action flick.
TOTD has what every Tomb Raider fan wants, lots of action, pyrotechnics, gun battles, stuff blowing up, but most of all it has Lara Croft as played by Valerie Perez. Ms. Perez is down right hypnotizing in every frame of this film and could indeed give Angelina Jolie a run for her money. Director Nick Murphy and his crew have pulled out all the stops, with locations ranging from the blazing desert, china town, deserted alleyways to deep dark underwater caves. The fight choreography is very well done and Perez more than holds her own shooting and punching it out with the bad guys. The weapon fire-power alone in this film is enough to make your ears ring for a week! If you are a fan of the Tomb Raider films, and just can't wait for a third big-screen adventure, then "Tears of the Dragon" will give you that much needed Lara Croft fix!

Pictures, Tears of the Dragon is a Tomb Raider fan film that takes
a fresh look at Lara Croft's original backstory in an attempt to regain what
many believe was lost in the Hollywood treatment. This film has a major drawcard
in the form of their lead actress, Valerie Perez, who has the stunning
looks to rival many other Lara Croft impersonators.
Gone is the 100 million dollar budget, a leading Academy Award winning actress and enough pyrotechnics to ignite the Eastern Block, and in their place stands Valerie Perez, star of Tears of the Dragon - a low-budget fan-film shot with panache and enough bottled passion to elevate an army.
"I am amazed at the shots [these] guys have captured. The locations
are stunning, the style is great, [Valerie] looks like a very imposing Lara... I'm very impressed.
... I'm glad somebody's doin' a proper Tomb Raider movie.
Valerie Perez, the actress playing Lara Croft, looks like she jumped out of the game and onto our screens. She's got plenty of curves where they count and packs twin heaters so all you drooling Fanboys out there had better watch your step.
