**Yep, this is a different Tarzan, an updated one.**
Recently the Indian jungle boy, the live-action Mowgli film was made and so its time for Africa’s. This is not a Disney film and that’s one of the disappointments for the Tarzan fans. Because this film is for the grown-ups only. It is rated PG13, but still I don’t think the children would enjoy it like they did for the recent ‘The Jungle Book’ film. So it is like a DC film, I mean, DC makes superhero films for the grown-ups, unlike Marvel’s. The bottom line is, don’t expect it to be like a Disney film. Like the director said before the release, this is not the Tarzan from your father, grandfather’s era, but an updated one with strong graphic violence.
So the story skips all the Tarzan’s earlier life like from his childhood to adulthood parts. The film commences with Tarzan being settled in the UK. It’s the second half of the 19th century, where the European colonies in the Africa are expanding for its rich natural resources. So in the Congo savanna, the natives welcome Tarzan for his short visit, but the things get ugly when his wife, Jane was kidnapped. Now he must fight back for her safe return and also avert other threats in the region from the foreign power.
There are many CGI character films were made at the recent time, it is a trend, but not all of them are impressive. This film looked average when it comes to vfx. The story was acceptable, the performances were decent, the casting too not bad, but Samuel L. Jackson was completely useless. He’s one of the greatest sidekick Hollywood ever produced, but I don’t know why he’s in this project, his role was very silly.
In other hand, Alexander Skarsgard was good in the lead character and so Margot Robbie as Jane. The action sequences were not good as I expected. The film had a good runtime, but in some parts, it was slow or maybe you can say nothing interesting thing happens. I liked the idea, to update the theme, but they should have given more focus on the story. I hope if they plan another film, it should be a prequel. Because I feel there’s lots to learn about the past than going forward. This is a one time watchable film, there’s no surprises, just plain and partially entertaining.
This was the most underwhelming Tarzan movie that I have ever seen. A typical product of some Hollywood producer trying to make a “modern” take of Tarzan not really knowing or caring for the Tarzan that Edgar Rice Burroughs created.
In particular it was the palest and most underwhelming Tarzan character yet. He never radiated the strength nor the intelligence that Edgar Rice Burroughs attributed to his character. He spent most of the movie going around with a bland look on his face.
The story itself is pretty much an out of the box standard Hollywood story about slavery and abuse of the black African population. Not truly bad but nothing to write home about either.
There is a lot of CGI in the movie and although quite a few reviewers seem to consider it bad I personally though it was pretty okay. One of the few decent bits of the movie.
I truly do not understand that they had the nerve to call this movie The Legend of Tarzan since it really is pretty far from the legend of Tarzan that Edgar Rice Burroughs created. This movie would perhaps have been okay as a one hour episode in a Tarzan TV-show but as a high budget feature movie it simply does not cut it. I was quite disappointed.
An underwhelming turn for David Yates.
What we have here is yet another Tarzan adaptation. This isn’t the Tarzan you know from the Disney movie. No, this time we see him start out in England as a gentleman, celebrity of sorts. People all know who he his and his origin. For a moment I thought the film would be smart enough to know that we, as an audience, also know this origin story. But this ain’t that kinda movie. Outside of being a “new” take on the mythical man raised by apes there isn’t anything remotely new about this movie. It still tells us his origin in laziest way possible and it still follows a three act structure that we have seen a couple thousand times over.
As I blankly starred at the jumbled mess I was watching on screen I couldn’t think of a single thing I hated, nor a single thing I loved. This is one of those movies that just kind of exists. There isn’t anything that is glaringly bad about the movie at all. There aren’t moments of unintentional comedy but, what’s worse, is that there aren’t even moments of fun to be had.
The only person that seemed to be committed at all was Sam L Jackson. Who always seems to have a good time regardless of what movie he is in. Which often makes for the only bright spot in some movies, like this one. He alone makes this films dialogue sound almost good. But that is not the case with literally every other actor.
All of which just seem to be playing exaggerated versions of themselves. Either exaggeratedly bored or exaggeratedly upbeat. Neither of which works for this retelling at all. This could be due to just poor directing. David Yates looked to be more interested in putting style into his picture rather than making things natural.
But his “style” only goes as far the basic sequences of chatting. Any other time the shots are either so shaky that things are incomprehensible or the camera twists and turns so much that nausea will come to all. If there was one thing that was consistently worse than anything else in movie was the special effects.
The animals and environments that utilize CG are so obnoxiously noticeable, it’s sometimes painful to watch. The second biggest part of the Tarzan tale is the apes and their CG is absolutely the worst. Every time they show themselves on screen resulted in me cringing into the depths of my padded seat.
At the end of day I was actually glad we didn’t see the story everyone knows. If we got that movie we would’ve had to endure more of those dreadful apes. None of which have any personality or presence in the film at all. And, worse yet, is the characters. Who are so bland that even when they talked to each they seemed bored with the others lack luster persona.
What’s strange about this movie is that the majority of these negatives, are met with a near immediate positive. Some of the shot compositions are great while others are very by the numbers. Every time I find myself hating a certain thing in the movie something similar would happen but it would be done much better. This left me feeling nothing after it ended. Other than the straight awful characters there isn’t anything in this movie to love or hate. As each was met by something that would negate the other.
I’ve waited for this movie since childhood
“The Legend of Tarzan” is joyous.
Since childhood, this is the Tarzan I’ve wanted to see on screen, faithful in spirit to the Burroughs novels. The jungle is raw. The dangers are “real.” The villains are badder than bad. The historical period may not fully satisfy the Tarzan chronologists, but it’s close enough and serves the exciting story it wants to tell. The gorillas are gorillas-plus (mangani). We even get a glimpse of the gates of Opar.
But most important, the portrayals of Tarzan and Jane are spot-on. You believe this couple from start to finish.
Is the movie perfect? Probably not, but it comes so damn close that I don’t care.
