At the end of the film, Tarzan is swinging from vine to vine, and one shot has him swinging over a river. A cable is visible behind the trees, and his "vine" is attached to the cable, much like the way a zip line works. See more »

31 August 1999 | by (CARDIFF,WALES) – See all my reviews

Strange that this movie has such a low rating and stranger still that no-one has yet commented on it. Suffice to say,it is the greatest of all Tarzan movies and a slight rearrangement of the three word title would be an apt description.Here we have an intelligent jungle thriller,well filmed,well scripted and above all well acted.Jock Mahoney plays his best screen role here as the villainous Coy Banton and his unsmiling grimness lent itself far better for this sort of portrayal than when he took over the role of the apeman for the next two in the series. As Tarzan,Gordon Scott is excellent and he should have stayed in the role.Although he is not the best Tarzan of all(that honour fell to Ron Ely in the superb 60's t.v.series)he comes a close second.This is an adult move with adult themes and relationships but still has enough action(some of it brutal)to excite viewers of all ages.Tarzan afficionados would have you believe that the best Tarzan movie ever made was another Scott thriller called "TARZAN'S GREATEST ADVENTURE".It isn't;but this is.My best advice is watch it and enjoy,then vote and comment.A 4.9 vote does an excellent movie a great injustice.
