Trivia

Warner Bros. wanted to set up Alexander Skarsgård with one of their trainers to get ready for the role but Skarsgard refused and instead picked his own trainer to get ready. Skarsgard got up at 4 AM daily to workout for 2 hours before filming began and he said that it was important for him that if he was going to see somebody daily for a year at 4 AM in the morning, that they should not be a stranger but his friend. So he picked his Swedish friend Magnus Lygdback to train him. See more »

Goofs

Chief Mbongas son kills Tarzans surrogate mother. You see him using an arrow with a forged iron head. A jungle tribe would not have the skills nor the tools to create such an arrowhead. They would use a tip hardened in fire. See more »

Legend of Tarzan, A Really Great Movie
29 June 2016 | by oarkasSee all my reviews

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!
