Storyline

On the eve of his wedding, John Clayton, Lord of Greystoke (better known as Tarzan), receives a message from the witch doctor Mugambe that his homeland is in danger. It turns out that a treasure hunter named Ravens is searching for the lost city of Opar, and is destroying the jungle and desecrating the villagers' burial grounds in the process. Only Tarzan can stop Ravens and set things right in the African jungle, but will Jane stand for her fiance being away for so long? Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

One of the Best Tarzan Movies Made
28 May 1999 | by WeeWilly-3See all my reviews

The movie is truer to the original Tarzan of E.R.Burroughs than almost any other one I've seen and I've watched them for over 40 years and have read 10 of the original books. Although the acting may not be first rate the story line isn't too far from the City of Opar book. I'd prefer more of the "savage, but civilized" side of Tarzan to be portrayed, along with less chimp and fake gorillas.
