I’ve been a Tarzan fan since I first saw the Disney movie Tarzan in 1999, there was a follow-up Tarzan 2 series in 2002 and then Tarzan and Jane in 2008 and a few other Tarzan movies as well. When I saw the trailer for this movie, I thought, I gotta go see this because this seem like a different spin-off of the original Tarzan movies, I’ve seen in the past. I was able to see this movie on Tuesday and was happy I did. If you haven’t seen it, check out the trailer below.
Here is a little summary of the movie:
It has been years since the man once known as Tarzan (Skarsgård) left the jungles of Africa behind for a gentrified life as John Clayton III, Lord Greystoke, with his beloved wife, Jane (Robbie) at his side. Now, he has been invited back to the Congo to serve as a trade emissary of Parliament, unaware that he is a pawn in a deadly convergence of greed and revenge, masterminded by the Belgian, Captain Leon Rom (Waltz). But those behind the murderous plot have no idea what they are about to unleash.
This was a very good, action packed movie from start to finish. There were a lot of build up scenes but also a lot of action. The one thing I was surprise, I didn’t see was Tarzan not really talking to the animals, I was kind of sad to not see that. They did show that he was very good at mimicking the animals sounds, but I remember Tarzan as talking to the animals, in their language.
Another part of the movie I liked was how they shown how he grew up from an infant living with the animals to a boy and then a man. They did an amazing job really pulling at your heart-strings as to some of the things he went through as a child growing up in the big world of the Jungle.
I also loved how they showed the African villages, it was so beautiful to see and the end was my favorite part of the movie! This is definitely a must see. I was able to go with my girlfriends and they also enjoyed the movie and felt like it was good too.
