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 1, 2019
It's a nice pulp story with solid acting, cinematography and editing.

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.

There's a heart and soul in this film that are drowned out by the banal blockbuster it tries too hard to be.
November 8, 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.

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.
Full Review | Original Score: B

Margot Robbie's performance as Jane Porter is fine. Not inspirational, but she gets the job done. The writing, on the other hand, clings to the worst possible cliche.
August 30, 2018
Just there as a summer blockbuster movie, but there are so many better and entertaining films to go out to see than this.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5

Margot Robbie is not given too much to do other that look longingly into the distance waiting for her man. He Tarzan, she Jane, and this is a dud.

Tarzan as a savior doesn't really work in the way that Yates probably envisioned and the combination of villainous politics and jungle adventure strikes a strange chord.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

I was not prepared for the tedious artistic choices, which made the movie glum and dreary for me.
January 23, 2018
The character development is beautiful. Even though we already know Tarzan and Jane, their presence feels so real. The connection between them is so strong, you can sense it even when they're not even talking to each other.

Adds a nice infusion of originality and energy into an old, familiar story....
Full Review | Original Score: B+

The Legend of Tarzan adds nothing to the legacy and really has no purpose for existing unless you REALLY want to see Alexander Skarsgård's shirtless chiseled up body for almost 2 hours
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

With striking cinematography and fine ensemble acting, The Legend Of Tarzan is seriously good which, given how familiar we are with the basic story, is an impressive achievement.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
August 9, 2017
The movie is so devoted to offering a clever course-correction of the Tarzan myth, while still staying true to that myth, that it overlooks its own impossibility.
June 2, 2017
The Legend of Tarzan feels like the sequel to a much more interesting film... I wish Yates would have just focused on the elements of Tarzan's story that made it so interesting in the first place instead of foolhardily trying to modernize it.
