Following his parents' death in Africa, John Clayton has been be raised by an ape, was known by the name Tarzan, but eventually left Africa and for his parents' home in England, along with the woman he fell in love with and married, Jane Porter. He is asked by Belgian King Leopold to go to Africa to see what he has done there to help the country. Initially, he refuses. But an American, George Washington Williams, wants him to accept so he can accompany him. He says that Leopold might be committing all sorts of atrocities to achieve his goal, like slavery. 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. With Washington's help he escapes and sets out to rescue Jane by going across the jungle. Washington joins him despite being told that he might not make it. Written by w

Trivia

Alexander Skarsgård said his biggest fear in taking on the role was that his little brother, who was seven years old, would think that Skarsgård "is a shit Tarzan." Skarsgård said his little brother looks up to Tarzan as "his ultimate hero," and he did not want to let his little brother down. See more »

Goofs

The fastening system used to attach the railroad tracks to the ties are ones used in modern Europe on concrete ties. It's more likely that simple spikes driven in wooden ties would have been used in the latter part of the 19th century in Africa. See more »

I've seen stencil graffiti with more depth than this
7 July 2016 | by See all my reviews

If you want to see a painfully unoriginal and unengaging story of paint-by-number characters getting at it in the green room for 90% of the time, go see this movie.

The most deplorable thing about this movie - aside from the plot being an incoherent mess - is the way the villains are portrayed as caricatures, and the good guys as saints who can do no wrong. I don't know about you, but when the villains are portrayed as sadistic psychopaths with no real motive or character, I lose interest in the story.

tl;dr lots of CG, completely two-dimensional characters and a plot that could've been auto-generated with a smartphone app.
