Clayton agrees and his wife insists that she accompany him because she misses Africa. When they arrive, a man named Rom, who works for Leopold, attacks their village and captures Tarzan and Jane.

Goofs

According to documents Rom takes at the port, Lord and Lady Greystoke travel to Africa on the White Star Line's Britannic. While the Britannic (sister ship to the Olympic and Titanic) was an actual ship, it's impossible for the Greystokes to have been passengers at that time. The film is set in the early 1890s - construction on the Britannic began November 1911. It is possible the filmmakers chose an earlier White Star Liner, also named Britannic, which was built in 1874 and scrapped in 1903, but this ship ran a service between Liverpool and New York during the time the film takes place.

Beautiful visuals & CGI bring legend to life
30 June 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I wasn't sure what to expect with Tarzan. I thought it might be cheesy or the special effects would look ridiculous, but surprisingly a majority of the time, it looked really good! Do you have to suspend disbelief sometimes? Absolutely. But it's a story about a man who controls jungle animals and swings from vines, so its going to look unbelievable at points. However, I found a good chunk (about 85% IMO) relied on realistic scenery, makeup and special effects. I mean... they're not going to use real gorillas or lions with the actors, but the CGI ones looked really good and will have you mesmerized by the detail. Personally found the movie very enjoyable, action packed and beautiful to watch. The director and actors did a phenomenal job. I found myself glued to the screen for a majority of the film.
