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.

Some things should be left in the past and forgotten. Case in point: Tarzan.

While technical aspects are strong, especially as they pertain to the motion capture effects utilized to bring the African beasts running through the jungle to life, sadly this is the end of the good news.

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

For all his ape-punching, wildebeest-grappling and months of work in the gym, Skarsgård is too tame to convince as a man whose heart is still in the jungle.

The Legend of Tarzan is a Marmite blockbuster that will repel and attract in equal measure.
July 8, 2016
The Legend of Tarzan is a passable action adventure. I ended up thinking a lot about it afterwards, because I found it so odd. I'm not sure that's enough to recommend it.

A good deal poorer than Hugh Hudson's much- maligned 1984 reinvention, Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes.

This is a perfectly serviceable stab at updating the Tarzan story.

It looks like a two-hour Neutrogena commercial.

Bearing a slight resemblance to Lambert, Skarsgard makes a dashing, if earnest, Tarzan.
July 7, 2016
Despite its problems, The Legend of Tarzan is still an enjoyable popcorn movie with enough momentum and energy to keep you riveted the whole time.

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.
July 7, 2016
The Legend of Tarzan is myth wrestling with history in the mud, and eventually shaking hands for an awkward truce.
July 6, 2016
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?

The plot of the classic adventure tale has been admirably reconfigured to meet modern sensibilities, but the resulting film is simplistic, condescending, and inert.

[Jackson] seems to be in the film mostly to provide some well-needed comic relief.
July 1, 2016
It might be time to let Tarzan vanish back into the jungle.
July 1, 2016
The Legend of Tarzan moves briskly and has the overall feel of one of Burroughs' more entertaining stories come to the screen.
July 1, 2016
This is the story of Tarzan, but it's not. It's fantastical, but not fantastic.
