As part of the promotion for the film at the 2016 MTV Movie Awards, Alexander Skarsgård presented an award without his pants and wearing just a shirt, jacket and tight white underwear, showing off his muscular legs that he developed for the role of Tarzan. He said on-stage, "Me Tarzan. I gotta give the fans a little skin", making a nod to his scanty costume in the film. See more »
The film mentions that the Force Publique is a European mercenary force and it is depicted as (almost) exclusively white (European). In reality the Force Publique was a native (i.e. black) force commanded by European officers (some regular, some mercenary). See more »
They finally portrayed the Tarzan character more like Burroughs wrote him! This is the best Tarzan movie I have ever seen. The acting is superb, and the settings are beautiful. The movie was so good that it seemed like I wanted it to last longer. It was sheer entertainment!
The stars of the film were really excellent in their roles, and I thought the two main characters perfectly played their roles. The rest of the cast were excellent also.
The story moves along briskly, and the plot is very effective.
I believe people will enjoy it, even if they know nothing about Tarzan. This is a very enjoyable movie, and I recommend it. We are going to see it again this weekend and bring our family and friends!
