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.

Audience Reviews for Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes

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