Orphaned and stranded in the heart of the untamed African jungle, little John Jr--the helpless son of the famous industrialist, John Greystoke--finds a new family in the shape of a mighty female silverback gorilla. Now, almost two decades later, Johnny is Tarzan, or the powerful "Ape without Fur", who finds himself up against the rapacious young CEO of Greystoke Energies, William Clayton, and his evil plan to exploit the unharnessed force of a prehistoric meteor. In the search of the extraordinary celestial body, Clayton will stop at nothing to rob the jungle of its invaluable resource; however, not if Tarzan and the daughter of the late explorer James Porter, Jane, can help it. Will the ruthless invaders desecrate Tarzan's virgin realm?Written by
Took the family to see Tarzan. 4yr old cried at the sad bit, but got VERY board (FYI to film goers- cinema was very noising from board kids talking, crying, moving around, playing on phones!!!) 11yr thought it was very poor, compared to other animation and the Disney version he grew up on. To quote him, "why did they bother if they couldn't do it better?". My misses and I thought the animation kept pulling us away from the film, you cant be immersed into a story if it keeps distracting you. The motion capture just seemed weird; clunky and off putting. Not 100% terrible, but needs a lot more to be worth the £60 we spent on tickets and treats! It's not as if the story is even public domain, Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc. still hold copyright on Tarzan, so again why did they bother?
