Tomb Raider

Chingmy Yau and Jackie Chan in 'City Hunter'  Chingmy Yau

Lara Croft

Does anyone else notice any similarity between Chingmy Yau's outfit in City Hunter and the one sported by Lara Croft in "Tomb Raider" -- which came out a few years later? Ms. Croft also does a lot of dual-handgun blasting in her games, which of course is a mainstay of Hong Kong action movies.

Angelina Jolie

In the first live-action movie of the game, Angelina Jolie's main outfit looks a bit more like Chingmy's than Lara's.

Angelina Jolie and Simon Yam

And, in the second film, part of it takes place in Hong Kong and features a few HK natives such as Simon Yam.

Undiscovered Tomb

In 2002, a Hong Kong film called Undiscovered Tomb -- which took a lot of it's "inspiration" from the games and their movie adaptations -- was released without much fanfare.

Dragon Reloaded

2005's Dragon Reloaded features a male thief called the "Tomb Razor".
