Despite the seismic critical and commercial failure of Disney's John Carter, Hollywood hasn't been deterred from diving back into the Edgar Rice Burroughs literary archives for feature film material. Tarzan, an animated adventure arriving ahead of Warner Bros's Alexander Skarsgård-led blockbuster, will hope to fare better than the Mars-marooned Civil War veteran did in 2012.
Heroes are in vogue on the big screen right now, whether they're clad in superhero spandex or a loincloth - and Tarzan certainly has a sturdier cinematic history than John Carter, even if he did have to suffer through Phil Collins's caterwauling.
Fortunately this German-produced take on the story doesn't have the ex-Genesis man to contend with, but it does suffer from a thrifty corner-cutting »
