This movie is the definition of bad cinema
19 March 2001 | by See all my reviews

It really boggles my mind when i think that someone wasted a month or so of their lives writing this script. And then to think that he/she handed this script out to probably a dozen people and they all gave this project the go ahead, thinking that it might be a good idea to invest hundreds of thousands of dollars to make it, is truely mind blowing. Joe Lara is Tarzan, or at least thats what they lead you to belive. His acting skills fall somewhere between Ron Jeremy and Vanilla Ice. He plays a very unconvincing Tarzan in a caricature of New York city in the eighties. The only actors in this movie that i have ever heard of are Jan-Michael Vincent and Tony Curtis. Vincent and Lara are BAD ACTORS, and Tony Curtis acts like a bad actor. This movie is not funny, not romantic, not suspenseful, not beliveable and, not entertaining. Possibly the funniest thing about this movie is the fact that i found it on DVD. I bought it for $2 out of a clearance bin to give as a joke gift to a film buff friend of mine. This is THE ONLY valid reason that anyone would ever want to purchace this horrible, horrible film.
