Legend of Tarzan, The (DVD)
It has been years since the man once known as Tarzan (Skarsgård) left the jungles of Africa behind for a gentrified life as John Clayton III, Lord Greystoke, with his beloved wife, Jane (Robbie) at his side. Now, he has been invited back to the Congo to serve as a trade emissary of Parliament, unaware that he is a pawn in a deadly convergence of greed and revenge, masterminded by the Belgian, Captain Leon Rom (Waltz). But those behind the murderous plot have no idea what they are about to unleash.]]>

I loved this take on the movie. I liked that they didn't try and burden you with tons of origin story-line. They had brief flashbacks of Tarzan's origin, but they assumed you knew the origin story so they focused more on telling the present story at hand.
I was surprised by how perfect Alexander Skarsgard played Tarzan. I wasn't sure exactly what I wanted from Tarzan or what I expected. But I was impressed that Tarzan was not this extremely talky, flashy character. He had very few lines and more then anything he just had this presence that was un-deniable when he was on screen. You could feel that he was something more then human, but that he was also not invincible. I was impressed by the connection Tarzan and Jane had. Though they were not in many scenes together, you could feel their strong connection through out the film. I loved Margot Robbie as Jane. She was pretty and earthy, a very strong independent character that felt real, and a good match for Tarzan.
I thought the cinematography was very beautiful and impressive. The score was equally lovely. The movie I felt was a good mix of action and story with wonderful actors that did a really good job playing their characters.
I don't know why the critics were so harsh on this movie, because I was pleasantly surprised by how much I really loved it! If you are at all someone that finds the story of Tarzan intriguing then you will enjoy this new take on it.
I have never been happier to be wrong! Of course it couldn't be 100% faithful to the books. After all, it had to fit three books' worth of context into one standalone movie. But it maintained all of the key factors that shaped John Clayton III's life and didn't surrender the important details that make Tarzan, well... Tarzan! I was so immensely satisfied with this movie experience that I can't even express it properly in this review. It was beautifully crafted, perfectly adapted, and an all-around joy to watch. Tarzan of the Apes and Return of Tarzan are two of my favorite books of all time, and I am absolutely satisfied with this movie as a modern representation of those works.
By far, it's the best representation of the great apes described in the original books. Over the years, I've wondered if ERB had a clue what he was describing when he wrote about them, whether they were chimpanzees or a completely different species of apes. There is an explanation about them in the film, that they are not like "peaceful gorillas."
Special effects are absolutely beautiful.
Jane has passion and spunk.
And when is watching Samuel L. Jackson NOT fun?
It's about the best Tarzan you're going to get on film, at least until they let a bunch of ERB fans make a movie.
