I fell asleep during this one more than once. Maybe it was trying to do something special or stick to a narrative, but I never really bought into the antagonists. If you are into Tarzan then you must see it. Otherwise, you can skip it.
Hmmmm not a great fan of this story/franchise but two actors help make this a good watch. Christoph Waltz who plays Leon Rom and Margot Robbie who plays Jane. Both are fabulous actors who truly embody... Read more their characters. And its a creative twist on an old tale with visual affects that blend seamlessly with reality. Oh and then there's the wonderful Samuel L.J. who seems to be in every 5th movie made. He's does for a movie what a hood ornament does for a Rolls Royce. It just wouldn't be complete without him. I always look forward to who he's going to play next. It's like he's always the same but totally different every time. Love him.
Alexander Skarsgard obviously worked very hard on his role as Tarzan - probably the best version of him yet. Impressive delivery.
What a Man! This Tarzan is like no other in the history of film making about the mighty Ape Man (and there has been a few of them). In fact, he borders on being quite realistic compared to other ridiculous... Read more versions. At first the film seemed to start off quite slow, and I wondered if I would enjoy it. But once the action kicks in, the movie is spectacular! So don't give up...wait for it, and I am sure you won't be disappointed.
When the kids go their rooms halfway through, you know you're watching a turkey. I'm happy that some people enjoyed it, but I thought it was woeful. Two stars for the monkeys.
loved the story line and actors, the whole sharbang awesome loved it
Skarsgard plays the titular character with great physicality without being over the top or riduculous, and Robbie is feisty and ingenious as Jane. The Belgians sure get a bad rap in this film, which... Read more may or may not be well-deserved. The Great Apes are appropriately impressive and the encounters with other animals are engaging and touching (this is a "Tarzan" movie, after all!)
The jungle of the Congo with it's towering trees and vast vistas is perfect for 3D, and I'm sorry I saw it only in 2D...
A good old-fashioned adventure, with leads that you'll root for, and a satisfying battle between good and evil. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
