Jackson is the film's greatest asset. He's also its biggest problem. He's just too charismatic.

The Legend of Tarzan is a Marmite blockbuster that will repel and attract in equal measure.
July 7, 2016
It looks like a two-hour Neutrogena commercial.

Bearing a slight resemblance to Lambert, Skarsgard makes a dashing, if earnest, Tarzan.
July 7, 2016
There were possibilities in this set-up, but the film takes its tone from the glum Skarsgard, who has the bulky torso but not the spirit.

You have to laugh a little at its audaciousness, but it's so completely irony-free that to deride it would only be cheap. Why not just enter its CGI-heavy bubble of wonder?

David Yates may never get to make a sequel (or a prequel) to this story but it will remain in fine company alongside Andrew Stanton's JOHN CARTER as a pitch perfect vision of the writing of Edgar Rice Burroughs.

Honestly, if they could have just settled for broad, barely there social commentary with the occasional gorilla fist fight, this could have been a minor success. A Phil Collins song or two couldn't have hurt either.

Although it may not spark a sequel, The Legend of Tarzan is nice escapist summer entertainment for fans of one of the movies' most classic heroes.

The movie does look nice and the cast has decent chemistry but it's just not what you want in a Tarzan movie.

Just because something is classic, doesn't make it timeless.
February 19, 2019
Unfortunately, despite a great cast and a great look, the film never quite manages to capture the spirit of the story in a truly engaging way.

Throwback experience of intensity and thrills fitting for the classic hero.

They wanted to sell us The Legend of Tarzan as another hit blockbuster, but it fails loudly. [Full Review in Spanish]
February 2, 2019
It's a nice pulp story with solid acting, cinematography and editing.
January 15, 2019
The problem, though, is that this Tarzan really isn't very interesting, with Skarsgard's six pack about the only thing he brings to the table.
December 8, 2018
There's a heart and soul in this film that are drowned out by the banal blockbuster it tries too hard to be.
November 9, 2018
What should have been a triumphant reclamation of one of the last century's most indelible icons becomes just another reminder that all heroes eventually fade away.
November 2, 2018
Apart from some decent acting and interesting story ideas, The Legend of Tarzan was a disappointment for all involved. But thank Samuel L. Jackson for his entertaining performance, as he makes the film more entertaining that it has any right to be.

Legend finds its groove late in the running, when Tarzan uses his pull with the wild creatures to orchestrate something pretty spectacular.
