Tarzan (PG)

Tarzan (PG)

Animation, Action, Adventure

Tarzan and Jane Porter face a mercenary army dispatched by the evil CEO of Greystoke Energies, a man who took over the company from Tarzan's parents, after they died in a plane crash.

The critical consensus

Ponderously plotted and unwonderfully animated, this will disappoint audiences spoilt by Pixar-grade animations.

If kids are captivated by the slight, over-explained story of Tarzan and Jane versus evil mercenaries, I’ll be a monkey’s uncle.

The lush jungle setting and menagerie of animals are convincingly depicted but the human characters look weird and the clunky storytelling doesn’t help at all.

Johnny Weissmuller movies were much more fun than this.

While the motion-captured 3D CG has an uncanny photorealist quality, the wisdom of attempting to turn Tarzan into an Avatar-lite fantasy remains, at best, questionable.

Having trashed one icon in The Legend Of Hercules, Kellan Lutz shafts another with vocals admittedly well-suited to the muscle-bound mannequin. What really sabotages Reinhard Klooss’ film, though, is a subplot involving a meteorite-derived power source.
