Movie Info

Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes is a reverent retelling of the Edgar Rice Burroughs original, with a 1980s-sensibilities slant.

As long as they stay in the jungle, this Tarzan may be one of the very best versions of the character you're likely to see.

Beautiful. A real view of an ape man clashing with the civilization.

Hugh Hudson has fashioned a visually resplendent film that, while perhaps a bit too rigid to offer the proper degree of high adventure synonymous with the Tarzan trademark, contains no small measure of compelling sequences and strong performances.

Quite an entertaining live action Tarzan film. One more for the kids though.
