      Zinjx W Certainly ranking among the cream of all the classic Tarzan films. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/05/24 Full Review Audience Member "Swimming gave me my start, but my pal Tarzan did the real work. He set me up nicely." - Johnny Weissmuller. I loved the Johnny Weismuller Tarzan films when I was a kid. He's such a perfect specimen of a man. But, I never did care for the films that had "Boy" (Johnny Sheffield); I mean, nothing personal against him or his acting. I just liked the films with just Tarzan and Jane. Anyway, this was kind of a fun film to watch (Choke full of inaccuracies. Now that I'm older I can pick them out). But still highly entertaining and makes me more nostalgic for Hollywood's Golden Age. The plot is fairly straight-forward and has a really good message but the acting (by today's standard) was a bit campy, but still fun to watch. Overall, this movie satisfies my craving for a nostalgic guilty pleasure. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Audience Member Still enjoyable enough despite that stupid boy character. Tarzan prevents animals being smuggled out of the jungle Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Audience Member This Tarzan movie is Johnny Weissmuller's penultimate one in the role and he's already looking too old to pull off the jungle man character convincingly. It carries a fairly obvious central message about man and beast. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member Slightly lacklustre penultimate entry in the Johnny Weissmuller Tarzan series sees Tarzan, Boy and Jane protecting the animals of the jungle from some greedy trappers. Barton MacLane is the villainous trapper leader who is eaten by one of his own lions - he drowned in quicksand as the villain two years previously in Tarzan and the Amazons! One of the strangest imaginable endings sees Cheetah parachuting from a plane whilst applying lipstick!! Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Audience Member Tarzan wants to protect his jungle animal friends from the title huntress, who wants to ships all of the wildlife off to a zoo. Meh...
