Forgettable Tarzan adventure
9 December 2000 | by (Bruges, Belgium) – See all my reviews

Average Tarzan fare with Scott leading the passengers of a crashed airplane to safety. Of course there are some baddies along the way and of course all ends well, but it all seems too uninspired to enjoy. Forget this one, there are better Tarzan adventures than this(e.g. TARZAN'S GREATEST ADVENTURE). 5/10
