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.
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
This wasn't a huge train wreck from the reviews or the box office. It's the hilarious moments when Tarzan feels the need to flip into water after thinking Jane had drowned or when the visual effects are super bad. This is much like The Phantom, The Shadow and The Rocketeer, guilty pleasures for the young crowd. Jane was well cast among all these other poorly cast people, Tarzan especially. I liked some of the scenery and the monkey in Janes dress but unless you have no idea of quality you'll struggle with this film.
So bad it's good.
