Action and Adventure, Animation
Updating the classic jungle tale about a gorilla-raised orphan for a generation raised on CGI, this motion-capture animation has created a vivid natural world of flora and fauna. Relying on fast-paced action rammed with effects rather than depth of narrative, it sees vine-swinging Tarzan – abandoned in the jungle after a helicopter crash which claimed his millionaire parents – grow under the nurturing care of a mother ape. Meanwhile, his family’s Greystoke corporation has been taken over by an evil profiteer set on harnessing the power of a meteorite to become a world energy leader. A jungle expedition brings him face to face with Tarzan and his band of apes.
Big, more serious Tarzan for the 1980s, starting with the story of how a British child ended up being raised by apes.
