Great Adventure
16 October 2016 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

In the Nineteenth Century, John Clayton (Alexander Skarsgård) is married with Jane Clayton (Margot Robbie) and fully adapted to the life in London. He is invited by King Leopold from Belgian to visit Africa but he refuses. However the American Dr. George Washington Williams (Samuel L. Jackson) convinces him to go since he wants to prove that there is slavery in the Belgian lands. Jane also goes with them and out of the blue, the village where they are lodged is attacked by the mercenaries commanded by the evil Leon Rom (Christoph Waltz) that works to Leopold. He wants to capture Tarzan to deliver him to Chief Mbonga (Djimon Hounsou), who is seeking revenge since Tarzan has killed his only son. In return, Rom will receive a chest of diamonds that Rom will use to pay mercenaries to invade Congo. However Washington saves Tarzan and Rom kidnaps Jane, expecting to be followed by Tarzan that crosses the jungle with Washington to rescue Jane. Will they succeed in their journey?

"The Legend of Tarzan" is a great adventure of the ape man. Alexander Skarsgård is an excellent Tarzan and the Hollywood's darling Margot Robbie is great in the role of Jane. Christoph Waltz performs an evil villain and the efficient Samuel L. Jackson completes the good cast. The CGI is impressive, with the gorillas and Tarzan climbing the lianas. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "A Lenda de Tarzan" ("The Legend of Tarzan")
