Golden Films' worst
18 September 2012 | by See all my reviews

The only redeeming quality for me of Tarzan of the Apes was the classical music which included the likes of Beethoven's Coriolan Overture and Wagner's Ride of the Valkyries, Lohengrin Act 3 prelude and the Flying Dutchman overture. However, I didn't care at all for the songs, they were not only not memorable but they didn't fit with the story either. The animation is cheap-looking, Golden Films does not have the best animation in the world but Thumbelina and The Little Mermaid especially had lovely background art, while as well as having stiff character designs but Tarzan of the Apes was flat in the colours and backgrounds. The script never flows naturally and feels cheesy, while the story is episodic and never engaged me and the characters are bland. The voice acting makes no impact, Tarzan and Jane's voices have no life to them whatsoever and Kerchak's is wildly overdone. Overall, I dislike Tarzan of the Apes and consider it Golden Films' worst, only Hercules and The Jungle King are almost as bad, and this is coming from someone who does enjoy most of them. 2/10 Bethany Cox
