gorgeous tarzan and fabulous locations!
15 April 2003 | by See all my reviews

I really liked this Tarzan series and didn't understand why it didn't last longer. Joe Lara is really a great Tarzan. He has a real animal quality and he is the most authentic looking Tarzan yet. The locations are amazing and they really attempted to stick to the fantasy of the Tarzan books. I wish it had stayed around longer as it would have been a real winner!
