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>

User Reviews

Well, it was a good try...
22 December 1998 | by Chiron1987See all my reviews

Tarzan and the Lost City was a failed attempt to bring the Lord of the Apes into the 90s. Caspar Van Dien was physically imposing as John Clayton, Lord Greystoke, and his loincloth-clothed alter ego, but he is just not a good enough actor to bring Burroughs' real character to the screen. The special effects were well made, but trite and really not needed, and the villains were never a good match for Tarzan, a man physically capable of doing just about anything. Jane March is attractive, but in a more British sort of way, which really doesn't translate well to American movie-going audiences.
