'Greystoke' is one of the most thoroughly enjoyable films of its kind I've ever seen.
For all its flaws, Greystoke is still better than the romanticized live-action versions of Tarzan that Hollywood has produced.
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.
vivid and involving
It's a different approach and will not satisfy viewers intent on seeing thrilling fights and derring-do.
...Oftentimes punishingly stately
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.
one of cinema's great disasters
Ralph Richardson and Ian Holm do a great deal to lend credence to and carry this bit of a different take on the ape-man story. More time is spent re-socializing the brute king than the popular 1930's jungle adventure tales, basing the thing more in the civilized world of 19th century England. Lambert does well, but the initial primal draw of the savage innocent at home with Nature story is missed with the emphasis on stuffed shirt society. Ultimately this is good storytelling, but it misses the zing of the older material.
We all know the background to Tarzan. I liked the visual aspects of the movie (great apes), but didn't like the Scottish noble life as much.
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.
