I have heard good things about this one from work so I decided to go ahead and give it a shot. The cast is pretty great so why not. It's directed by the same guy who did the final four films of Harry Potter! Adam Cozad wrote the average Jack Ryan movie. Craig Brewer was the creator of Hustle & Flow as well as Black Snake Moan. Both of which were awesome if you ask me. I don't even remember why the... read more

Savage Civilization, and Wild Freedom

"And how many men have been enslaved to build your bridge?" Told during the days of the white exploitation of Africa, this is basically the story of a European capable of leaving colonial ways behind and embracing the primordial life of the jungle.

Strange banalization of Tarzan becuase the film gets to its point relating the legend with wars of the time, american anti colonialism and kinf of politial stuff. Bah.

Description: Legend takes a different approach to Tarzan than Burroughs’ 1910s writings, the 1930s Johnny Weissmuller movies and other pop-culture adaptations that focused on the man being raised by simians and becoming lord of the jungle. Instead, the movie finds John Clayton III, Lord Greystoke, a decade removed from his home in the Congo and fully entrenched as a British gentleman in 1880s Victorian London, with his beloved wife Jane (Margot Robbie) by his side. He’s left his African home behind — his early days are seen in flashbacks — but is constantly reminded of his earlier exploits and gets invited back as an emissary of P ... (more)

" DVD- 1hr. 50min. First Viewing It's pretty well-made, sans the sub-par visual effects, but that's really the only positive note that I could give The Legend of Tarzan. The story is dull, with very little forward momentum, and predictable, and the cast is squandered on bland roles (Samuel L. Jackson is probably the highlight, but even he isn't able to cut loose). Movies about man-apes should not be this boring. Note: Jim Broadbent is in this movie for maybe ten seconds, and gets a "with" credit."

"I like the cast and this would have been an okay Tarzan film but this is a good example how bad CGI can take you out of a movie. Everything looked just so fake and badly rendered. Christoph Waltz had stolen Jet Li's choking beads and was evil. Samuel L. Jackson was himself which also didn't fit the film that well. "

2016 Films - Best to Worst (61 movies items)

" The Legend of Tarzan doesn't quite click or resonate with me. This is due to shallow characters and a massive lack of joy, but mostly due to awful pacing. The film trots along at an extremely sluggish pace. The main plot is constantly abrupt by several unnecessary scenes, such as weird flashbacks. The film is too long, and once the action kicks in, it's slightly lackluster. When a film is about Tarzan, you'd expect some proper hero moments, yet they're rarely there. Alexander Skarsgård does h"

"9th of July, Netflix Tämä oli jo tahattoman koominen tekele ja juuri siksi niin viihdyttävä. Alexander Skarsgård painimassa CGI-apinoiden kanssa ja varsinkin miehen Tarzan-huuto oli jo kerrassaan huvittavaa. Samuel L. Jacksonilla ei ole oikeastaan mitään roolia ja hänen ainoana tehtävänään on laukoa tavanomaiseen tapaansa vitsejä, jotka eivät edes istu 1800-luvun lopun maailmankuvaan. Kieltämättä koko elokuva laahasi paikoitellen hyvin pahasti ja alkoi vaikeasti määritettäv"

"25.6, Netflix Ihan hyvä ettei tämä ollut Tarzanin synnyintarina, vaikka turhissa takaumissa näitä Tarzan-tapaa-Janen -kuvioita esitelläänkin. Sen sijaan Tarzan lähtee Englannista takaisin viidakkoon estämään Christoph Waltzin esittämää hienostunutta pahista, jota ei oikein enää jaksa katsoa samassa roolissa. Cgi-eläimet ja paska leikkaus sekä ruma siniharmaa filtteri rasittavat. Samuel L. Jackson esittää sentään itseään ja haluaa nuolla gorillan kiveksiä."

"Katsottu: 19.6.2017, Netflix Ihan kiva toimintaseikkailu. CGI näytti välillä hyvältä, ja välillä huonolta. "

"28.4. Blu-ray Aivan kelpo viihdettä oluen juonnin ohessa. Eläimet näytti kyllä tosi kivoilta, mutta taustamaisemien epäaitous otti välillä silmään. Uga buga ja niin edelleen. Samuel L. Jackson näytteli taas itseään. Minua se ei haitannut, koska mies on varsin hyvä hommassaan."

"Effects were pretty bad considering that the budget was 180 million. They looked unfinished. Also the story wasn't that interesting which was based after Tarzan's origin story. There was one cool looking hand to hand fight scene inside the train carriage which I liked. Some fight scenes, including that train scene, Tarzan seemed to be overly strong. Like he kicked one big guy through the carriage wall and throw couple more away from his way like they were just air. Shared With My Brother, Siste"
