When Tarzan is fighting the Nazis, he rips the magazine off a machine gun and tosses it to the ground. A moment later, one of the Nazis starts climbing to the top of the building to use the gun, and you can see the magazine still there. Yet when the Nazi arrives at the gun, the magazine is missing again. See more »

When I think of Tarzan films, I think of this one - Cheetah's seminal scene at the end is one of my all-time favourite movie moments. This is, in my opinion the best of the Tarzan genre and I rate it a "10". I may be a bit biased having grown up watching these on TV, then going down the woods with my mates to build dens, climb trees and throw spears at anything that moved, but all the classic formulaic events of a Tarzan masterpiece are here. The big man himself, the jungle, dangerous animals ... throw in a bunch of Nazis for Tarzan to deal with too and how could it be anything but great ? Cheetah gives the performance of his life - he will have you rolling in the aisles with his antics near the end.
If you haven't seen it and it comes on TV, give it a go ... sit back, suspend your disbelief, accept it wasn't made yesterday and take the special effects at face value ... and simply enjoy ...
... now, where's my spear ?
