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.

Abandoned in the wilderness, the orphaned John is adopted by a family of rather highly evolved apes, and raised as one of their

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.

It's a different approach and will not satisfy viewers intent on seeing thrilling fights and derring-do.

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.

A great film with equally great scenery. Greystoke has become awefully forgotten, despite the fact that it's miles better than director Hugh Hudson's very overpraised( and multi-oscar winning) Chariots of Fire.

A more literary and intelligent treatment of the Tarzan story, the quality cast and well fleshed out characters make for a far more fulfilling film than the usual Dr. Dolittle/swinging/yodelling combo.
