Tarzan – Review
Rating: 3 out of 5 stars
It’s been nearly a decade since Tarzan (Alexander Skarsgård), also known as John Clayton III, left Africa to live in Victorian England with his wife Jane. Danger lurks on the horizon as Leon Rom (Christoph Waltz), a treacherous envoy for King Leopold, devises a scheme that lures the couple to the Congo. Rom plans to capture Tarzan and deliver him to an old enemy in exchange for diamonds. When Jane becomes a pawn in his devious plot, Tarzan must return to the jungle to save the woman he loves.
Pass: The special effects and jungle scenes were amazing!
Fail: The story was a bit poor, I guess the original Tarzan storyline has been done too much but then I guess you expect it so when its different is it disappointing? I think it had a lot to live up too.

• Overall Impression
Despite lavish special effects and the screenwriters’ best efforts to square the story with modern sensibilities, this jungle reboot just doesn’t quite hit the spot. Disney version any day! 🙂
