Chicago Reader
The stylized physiques and movements of the characters in this exciting animated musical-romance-adventure are at once realist and fantastic.

Chicago Sun-Times
I saw Tarzan once, and went to see it again. This kind of bright, colorful, hyperkinetic animation is a visual exhilaration.

Seattle Post-Intelligencer
It's a buoyant, often thrilling piece of animation that more or less does for the Central African rain forest what "The Lion King" did for the East African savanna.

Entertainment Weekly
One of the great virtues of Disney's most elegant animated ''classic'' in years is how blessedly sermon-free this zippy, dignified retelling of Edgar Rice Burroughs' ripping 1914 yarn is.

Newsweek
It's a swirling, fluid retelling of the tale that packs an impressive cargo of laughs, thrills and wonders into a watertight 88 minutes.

Although the villainous parts of this Tarzan are a bit hazy and the animal attraction between Tarzan and Jane a bit chaste, the film, nevertheless, works both for children and the adults.

Film Threat
Tarzan is a blast for both kids and grownups like myself and gets my recommendation.
75
Rolling Stone
Propelled by Mark Mancina's percussive score, this Tarzan swings.

Christian Science Monitor
There's no over-the-top music or comedy sequence to place this with the very best Disney animations, though, and Phil Collins's songs won't be to everyone's taste.

ReelViews
From a purely visual standpoint, this may be the most impressive of all of Disney's traditionally animated features.
