About 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.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: 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?
Rotten: The plot of the classic adventure tale has been admirably reconfigured to meet modern sensibilities, but the resulting film is simplistic, condescending, and inert.
Rotten: Maybe it's churlish to be so harsh about what is, after all, a jungle fantasy. But with such a surfeit CGI, the film is more hollow than heroic.
Rotten: In a season cluttered with big-budget blockbusters, The Legend of Tarzan doesn't stand out and is unlikely to leave an impression.
In my opinion, the special effects were the only good thing about this movie. I feel like this has the same exact plot as the jungle book, but undeveloped. Watch the original animated classic if you are thinking about diving into this movie. If you watch this, there is a 98% chance of never wanting to watch this movie again! Don't waste your time on this movie!
Honestly, I loved this movie! It's intense and dark! Perfect film score that really fits every scene. Ignore the haters and see this movie!
Not bad but not too good either
I expected a lot better
