The Legend of Tarzan

What to Know

Critics Consensus

The Legend of Tarzan has more on its mind than many movies starring the classic character, but that isn't enough to make up for its generic plot or sluggish pace.

K. Austin Collins The Ringer The movie is so devoted to offering a clever course-correction of the Tarzan myth, while still staying true to that myth, that it overlooks its own impossibility. Aug 10, 2017 Full Review Dwight Brown National Newspaper Publishers Association Some things should be left in the past and forgotten. Case in point: Tarzan. Nov 8, 2016 Full Review Sara Michelle Fetters MovieFreak.com While technical aspects are strong, especially as they pertain to the motion capture effects utilized to bring the African beasts running through the jungle to life, sadly this is the end of the good news. Rated: 1/4 Aug 9, 2016 Full Review Alejandro Turdo EscribiendoCine An interesting production that takes the best of the classic elements and updates certain tropes to deliver a film that entertains without being exhausting, creatively retelling a story we already know. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 7/10 Feb 16, 2023 Full Review Keith Garlington Keith & the Movies The film’s faults center more around its inability to invigorate the franchise and surprise us with something fresh and new. Rated: 2.5/5 Aug 23, 2022 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review Its as though the filmmakers learned about the reality of the period in which their story takes place, and they became so disenchanted and obsessed with historical accuracy that they forgot to make an escapist adventure. Rated: 2.5/4 Apr 11, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews

Mandy S I have watched this movie many times. I think it is a great movie. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/23/24 Full Review Tony P I honestly liked the movie and thought it had a decent story!

Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 06/08/24 Full Review Demond L The best Tarzan movie ever Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/22/24 Full Review Jordan K The Legend of Tarzan is a spectacular movie. Its acting and cast is fantastic. With a very fitting score and exciting action sequences, it is a great epic that will leave you feeling great. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/24/24 Full Review Jillian F Loved this movie just wanted to keep watching it over and over again. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/19/24 Full Review D M I know we all by now know the story of Tarzan and it's another remake along the same story but is intertwined with the future. A original classic that was perfect the first time is hard to change & be successful. With that being said I still enjoyed the film & left with a smile. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/11/24 Full Review Read all reviews
