Those films never attempt to take themselves seriously, they are like the Baywatch episode, completely silly and tastless. Tomb Raider on they other hand, was attempting to take it self very seriously with the introduction of serious plot conflicts regarding her father and former lover. Either be a serious action film (Blade Runner or in the female vane, La Femme Nikita) or be campy. If you do both, it just comes out flat.
