The Legend of Tarzan


4/5 Stars

Summary: “It’s been nearly a decade since Tarzan (Alexander Skarsgård), also known as John Clayton III, left Africa to live in Victorian England with his wife Jane. Danger lurks on the horizon as Leon Rom (Christoph Waltz), a treacherous envoy for King Leopold, devises a scheme that lures the couple to the Congo. Rom plans to capture Tarzan and deliver him to an old enemy in exchange for diamonds. When Jane becomes a pawn in his devious plot, Tarzan must return to the jungle to save the woman he loves.”

I usually don’t like to look too much into movies and TV shows before watching them anymore because I like to be surprised.  I’ll maybe half watch the trailer and decide from that if I want to go and see it–obviously there are exceptions for the movies that air A MILLION commercials on TV.  Because of this, I didn’t know what to expect.  I really thought it was going to be a remake of the Disney cartoon with some extra added onto the end.

I really liked that it was a completely new story.  It had funny moments and the CGI was really well done.  The only problem I had with it was that it was obviously not a sequel to the Disney version because they showed Tarzan’s childhood being different.  It made me want to see everything that happened back then and not just the few flashbacks.  Like the whole beginning of Tarzan and Jane’s relationship and how he became John.

Definitely worth seeing.
