The Legend of Tarzan

Critics Consensus

The Legend of Tarzan has more on its mind than many movies starring the classic character, but that isn't enough to make up for its generic plot or sluggish pace.

Audience Reviews for The Legend of Tarzan

  • Jul 25, 2018
    Very mediocre adventure about Tarzan's return to the jungle that has not one real animal and very few actual landscapes to offer. And even the CGI is not always that convincing, some of the effects were clearly made for the 3D spectacle at the movies, but feel very fake at home. Unfortunately, Skarsgard is neither very charismatic nor talented as a leading man, the rest of the cast is decent enough with SLJ bringing some fresh wind in his scenes. That's overall fairly entertaining but also rather shallow and not particularly pretty to look at.

    The Legend of Tarzan is a thrilling and action-packed adventure into the savagery of the jungle. Lord John Greystone must become Tarzan once more and return to the Congo when he learns of rumors that the Belgian king has reestablished slavery in order to develop a diamond mine. Featuring Alexander Skarsgard, Samuel L. Jackson, Margot Robbie, Dimon Hounsou, and Christoph Waltz, the film has a pretty strong cast. But the storytelling is problematic, requiring a lot of backstory to be told, and some familiarity with the characters. Also, the CGI is rather poor as the animals aren't integrated into the backgrounds very well and their movements have an unnatural look to them. Still, the action scenes are exciting and kind of creative in how Tarzan fights with and against various animals. Remarkably entertaining, The Legend of Tarzan presents an interesting and bold new vision of this iconic character.

    If not for the many shirtless scenes with Alexander Skarsgård, "The Legend of Tarzan" would not be worth anyone's time. Samuel L. Jackson is ridiculous, Christoph Waltz is a caricature of God knows what, the script is insipid and the CGI is inept. But then again, there's Alexander Skarsgård -- and he's shirtless...so I can give a half-hearted recommendation based on that.
