Critic Reviews for Tarzan and the Lost City
This silly adventure with Casper Van Dien as the latest Lord of the Apes comes across more like a sequel to George of the Jungle, but without the laughs.
Occasionally getting drawn into movies like this is the downside of having HBO when you're stuck at home with nothing to do. Do whatever you have to--mow the lawn, clean the garage, re-grout the bathroom tiles--but stay away.
No, no, no -- Casper Van Dien is NOT Tarzan!
Not only it is poorly written, badly acted, and generally incompetent in all cinematic areas, it is thoroughly uninspired
Any expression beyond a sullen pout seems to take an extraordinary amount of concentration and physical exertion on Van Dien's part; his infrequent attempts at smiles are the stuff nightmares are made of.
Audience Reviews for Tarzan and the Lost City
So if Congo is a great example of how to do a jungle adventure, then this is it's anithesis. Half of the movie's relationships make no sense, the special effects are drivel and used in inexplicable ways, and magic shows up out of nowhere for no real reason. The only good things, cineamtography is fine, and Casper Van Dien (as Tarzan) looks the part. That is to not say his acting is god, because it totally isn't, but neither is anyone else here. But for all these reasosn are why it's much fun.
Tarzan and the Lost City (1998) -- [2.0] -- There is absolutely no reason anyone should care about this movie unless they just want to see Casper Van Dien in a loincloth. Even then, it ain't worth it. I also have to say this is a strong candidate for worst musical score in film history.
It's a shame that the african locations are wasted in this bland vacant adaptation of the tutular hero. Casper Van Dien is bland and Jane March is just forgettable.
