Audience Reviews for Tarzan's Revenge

A different Lord Of The Jungle (a different studio), essentially cashing in on the trend of the time. While the yell (not the same) could curdle milk, all the action is the same: a jungle safari by pampered Westerners, easily spooked native types, an evil jungle overlord (this guy's an Arab sheik!), untrustworthy guides, a kidnapped woman, and our hero swinging to the rescue. And this Tarzan, beyond being a active Greenpeace member, can bend steel, not to be fooled with. In one chase scene he runs from the tribe of murdering savages carrying the woman under his arm as easily as one might carry a baby. Lots of second unit African animal shots, (from the plains, from the swamps, from the jungle, it doesn't matter) seen in lots of other jungle flicks, on display again here. And the stars, Glenn Morris and Eleanor Holm, are Olympic stars, no less! Still, all in all, not the worst of the genre.
