Not bad.

This is maybe not the most awesome movie ever, but watching a handsome, amazingly buff Tarzan doing his thing in the jungle never gets old. And for those who prefer seeing a gorgeous woman there's Tarzan's equally jungle compatible wife, Jane.

It was a good movie but a little bit different than what I expected. I thought there would have been more family history.

An interesting adaptation of the Tarzan stories with beautiful scenery. Fans of "10,000 BC" will find many similarities here, with some added humorous elements.

Thought the movie was good except Samuel l Jackson's character. I couldn't figure out why he was in it. Seemed like they stuck him in the movie last minute without a script part and then they turned the movie into a social justice theme.
Would have been much better without him and the liberal Hollywood views. Special effects were great.

A 21st century reboot of the pulp/Hollywood/comicbook standard using Adam Hochschild's LEOPOLD'S GHOST for source material. The idea is to tone down some of the most offensively racist and jingoistic aspects of Edgar Rice Burroughs' tale of white supremacy, and make Jane, played ably by Margot Robbie, less of a sex object and more of a feminist. Alexander SkarsgÄrd is decent as Tarzan. But Samuel L. Jackson is atrocious as the historical figure George Washington Williams, and Christopher Waltz I think is miscast as Leon Rom, the real-life basis for Joseph Conrad's Mr. Kurtz in HEART OF DARKNESS (and therefore Marlon Brando's Colonel Kurtz in APOCALYPSE NOW). But the film's weaknesses aren't limited to the acting. The indigenous people of the Congo all look like Westerners who eat a Western diet; the men in particular all looked like they could play linebacker for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Why doesn't Tarzan have any facial hair? Does he shave off camera with a Bic disposable? The Shagri-La ending is anachronistic. Leopold's atrocities would grow much worse when he focused on the industrial production of rubber; that hasn't even started by the end of the movie.

Horrendous !!!!

Tarzan was good looking, two dimensional and taciturn, but the Apes were interesting. Margo Robbie's Jane was sufficiently strong, if too modern. Always a pleasure to see Christoph Waltz play a villain.

I like live action animated animals. The special effects crew made it more fascinating and fun to watch. I like the exotic animals in the jungle. Very realistic.
