So I just happened to watch the original Tomb Raider again and was not able to explain to myself why Lara Croft goes through the trouble of helping the Illuminati to carry out their mischievous deeds.
Her father tells her in his post-mortem letter to either not let the Illuminati have the clock, or to destroy it if need be. Why he didn't let her know of this obviously huge ordeal but a week before the whole thing goes down to the side, and assuming that his request is for her to destroy it for all time, rather than just not let them have it until the next 5000 years later total eclipse happens? Why does she simply not destroy the half of the triangle when she has it? At some point she literally hands it over to the bad guys! For about half the movie she is thereafter playing in cahoots with the people she is supposed to stop!
Is there something I'm missing in this thing? If she had destroyed the half (which is not so hard, bearing in mind she shot through it with a buncha "live rounds" at the end), then no matter in how many 5000 year intervals, the illuminati could have never brought it together.
