The stylized physiques and movements of the characters in this exciting animated musical-romance-adventure are at once realist and fantastic.

Just as Disney animation has become increasingly impressive, so have Disney animated films become increasingly adult.

The first half of Tarzan is Disney's best stuff since Beauty and the Beast ... [then it] declines into a typical showdown with a forgettable villain.
